On Nov. 27, 2017, the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was announced. A few hours later, Prince Charles sat down for breakfast and mused to his wife, Camilla, “I wonder what the children will look like?”
Camilla was “somewhat taken aback” by the question and replied, “Well, absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain.”
Charles asked: “I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?”
This is according to a well-placed source who contributed to Christopher Andersen’s book “Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan”, out November 30.
In the March broadcast, Meghan said there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [her and Harry’s son, Archie’s] skin might be when he was born … Those were conversations that family had with Harry.”
“The question posed by Charles was being echoed in a less innocent way throughout the halls of Buckingham Palace,” Andersen writes.
The book also reveals Harry’s frustration after he complained to Charles, who, according to another insider, told the prince he was being “overly sensitive about the matter.”
This unsympathetic view was shared by William, who allegedly called the skin tone comment “tactless” but “not a sign of racism within the family.”
A spokesperson for Prince Charles told The Post: “This is fiction and not worth further comment.” A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan did not respond to requests for comment.
