He asked Camilla what the children would look like, and she replied, “They will be beautiful.”
The author of a new book claims that Prince Charles is the member of the royal family who raised the issue of the skin color of the future children of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, writes Radaronline.
The revelation comes after Megan and Harry dropped a shocking bomb during their interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year. Because Markle is of mixed descent, the couple said an unnamed family member asked what their children’s skin tone would be when they were born.
The book, published Tuesday, is titled “Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan” and was written by Christopher Andersen.
An insider reportedly revealed the morning Harry and Megan announced their engagement that Charles had asked his wife, Camilla, “I wonder what the children will look like?”
The source said Camilla was “somewhat surprised” by the question and replied: “Well, absolutely beautiful, I’m sure.”
After the revelation, a spokesman for Prince Charles said: “This is a fabrication and not worth any more comments.” Representatives of Megan and Harry also did not state a position on the issue, according to the New York Post.
During the interview with Winfrey, the couple said that there were “worries and conversations about how dark Archie’s skin can be, so they withdrew.
“The question posed by Charles was repeated in a less innocent way in the halls of Buckingham Palace,” Andersen wrote, citing gossip between the palace councilors. Charles told his youngest son that he was “too sensitive about it.”
Harry’s brother, Prince William, also said the comment was “tactless”, but “not a sign of racism in the family”.
