Camilla is not racist senior royal Meghan and Harry spoke of, claims source

Camilla is not the “racist” senior royal mentioned by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in their controversial Oprah Winfrey interview, a source has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said there were “concerns” over how dark Archie's skin colour would be made by a member of the Royal family in their bombshell interview with Oprah in March 2021 — but would not name the culprit.

Fresh allegations of racism came from a new book, Tom Bower's unauthorised biography, Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsor's, which features “interviews from insiders who have never spoken before".

Bower's book claimed that in the early days of Harry, 37, and 40 year old Meghan's relationship, Camilla, 75, made a remark about his son having a "ginger afro"

A royal source has since shut down these claims as they told Page Six: “Camilla is not racist — I can tell you categorically she is not the royal who Harry and Meghan were talking about.”

The controversial book, which neither Meghan or Harry have had any input in and have not publicly commented on, is being serialised in the Times and Sunday Times, and many extracts have been published over recent days.

The book includes alleged details about the Duchess' time with the Royal Family, and a source told The Sun: "This is the book Meghan will be dreading.

"Tom doesn't pull his punches and is terrifyingly thorough in his research. No stone will be left unturned."

The allegations of racism in the Royal Family originated from Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, where she claimed that there were conversations regarding the colour of her son Archie's skin.

The Duchess of Sussex told the chat show host that there were "concerns" over the colour of her son's skin within the Royal Family, but she refused to name the person who said it.

The former actress said: "In those months when I was pregnant, we had in tandem the conversations of him not being given security or a title, and also concerns about how dark his skin might be when he's born.

"They didn't want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn't going to receive security."

Oprah, 67, enquired for more details, but Meghan refused to name the royal member who made the comments, saying it would be "very damaging to them".
