Has It Finally Been Revealed Who From The Royal Family Asked About Archie's Skin Tone?

During Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Oprah Winfrey interview, one of the biggest bombshells they dropped was that a member of Harry's family was reportedly concerned about the color of Archie's skin. Meghan wouldn't tell Oprah who said it because it would be "very damaging to them." Harry also stayed mum on the topic. "That conversation, I'm never going to share," Harry said. "But at the time it was awkward, I was a bit shocked." The Duke and Duchess of Sussex remained silent, but Twitter had many thoughts about which royal family member was worried about a future royal's skin tone.

After Harry and Meghan's news, the overwhelming Twitter reaction was that Prince Charles was the "concerned" royal family member. One Twitter use commented, "Harry is also not sharing who asked about Archie's skin tone, so I am putting my money on Charles." Another royal watcher tweeted, "Ok so we can all agree it was Charles who asked about Archie's skin color right?" Author and journalist Jenna Guillaume tweeted, "Harry said he's 'never going to share' the conversation about Archie's skin tone but I'm now totally convinced it was Charles."

It's now reportedly been revealed who asked about Archie's skin tone — and it sounds like Twitter was onto something.

Prince Charles was reportedly the royal family member concerned about Archie's skin tone

Prince Charles was reportedly the royal family member who was concerned about the skin tone of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future kids. The reported bombshell about Prince Charles comes from Christopher Andersen's book, "Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan," which comes out November 30.

Page Six reported on the book's claims that a "well-placed" source inside the palace told the author that on the day Harry and Meghan announced their engagement, Charles asked his wife, Camilla, "I wonder what the children will look like?" The source said that the Duchess of Cornwall seemed surprised by her husband's comment and replied, "Well, absolutely gorgeous, I'm certain." The source said that the future king lowered his voice and asked, "I mean, what do you think their children's complexion might be?"

The book reported that Harry grew frustrated after talking to his father about the comment because Charles told his son he was being "overly sensitive about the matter." Prince William, meanwhile, reportedly told his brother that the skin tone comment was "tactless" but "not a sign of racism within the family." TMZ reports, however, that Anderson's book doesn't say Charles is the family member that Harry and Meghan referred to in their chat with Oprah Winfrey, so the matter is still up for debate.

Prince Harry spoke about a strained relationship with Prince Charles

Whether or not it was Prince Charles who asked about Archie's skin tone, one thing was very evident in the Sussexes' now-infamous famous interview with Oprah Winfrey. There's definitely a strained relationship between Prince Harry and his father.

During the interview, Harry spoke about the overall lack of support that he felt from Charles while he and Meghan Markle were facing so many difficulties. "I feel really let down. Because he's been through something similar — he knows what pain feels like — and Archie's his grandson," Harry said, via NPR. Harry also added that Charles stopped taking his calls. In addition, The Sunday Times reports that Charles was unhappy with the behavior of Meghan's father Thomas Markle and that Charles gave "Harry a hard time over Meghan's dad."

Conversely, Harry said during the interview that watching Meghan go through her ordeal put into perspective how much his mother, Princess Diana, suffered under tabloid scrutiny and a lack of support from the royal family, CBS notes. Of course, as Charles and Diana had such a turbulent marriage, the two have often been pitted against each other in the media. And here, Charles doesn't come out looking so good.

Harry and Meghan were reportedly urged to leave the UK because of racism

During their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opened up about their decision to leave the UK and settle in California, Meghan's home state. As CBS notes, Oprah asked them, "Did you leave the country because of racism?"

"[I]t was a large part of it," Harry responded. "I remember the Sentebale fundraiser," he went on, recounting an event. "And one of the people at that dinner said to me, 'Please don't do this with the media. They will destroy your life.' This person is friends with a lot of editors and like that."

Harry added, "I said, 'Sorry, elaborate what do you mean by that?' So I knew. He said, 'Please understand the U.K. is very bigoted.' And I stopped and said, 'The U.K. is not bigoted. The U.K. press is bigoted, specifically the tabloids. Is that what you mean?'" Harry added: "He goes, 'No, the U.K. is bigoted.' And I said, 'I completely disagree.' But unfortunately, if the source of information is inherently corrupt or racist or biased, then that filters out to the rest of society."

CNN reported that UK tabloids and media seriously lack diversity and this could play a factor in their racist coverage of Meghan. So far, the major takeaway is that Harry and Meghan's move to California was a good one.
