In a TV interview, Duchess Meghan made accusations of racism against a member of the royal family. A new book now says that the allegations are actually directed against two people in the royal household.
According to a tell-all book, Duchess Meghan is said to have accused two people at the British court of discussing the color of her son Archie’s skin before he was born. At least that’s what author Omid Scobie claims in his new book “Endgame”, according to the British newspaper “The Sun”.
The accusation itself is well known: 42-year-old Meghan and her husband Prince Harry claimed in a TV interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021 that an unnamed member of the royal family had speculated about “how dark” before the birth of their son. Archie’s skin will probably be like that.
Omid Scobie is now getting to the bottom of the allegations in his work, which will be published next week. Meghan is said to have written letters to the current King Charles and named two members of the royal household in them. These two took part in the “talks”. However, the identity of the two is not revealed in the book. The author is worried about legal consequences, writes the Daily Mail.
Mocking accusations of racism
Meghan’s accusation of racism made waves, but also drew ridicule. The US comedian Chris Rock, for example, said in a stage show: “Some of the crap Meghan went through wasn’t racism. It was just a bit of in-law crap.” Regarding the baby’s future skin color, Rock noted that this question had not only concerned white members of the British court. “Black people have asked themselves the exact same question.”
Omid Scobie, who used to be a confidant of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, sees “Endgame” not just as a book about Harry and Meghan, it’s about the entire royal family, he wrote on X. According to the “Daily Mail”. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan distanced themselves from the book.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan resigned as high-ranking royals in 2020 and moved to the USA. They live in California with their two children Archie and Lilibet. In Harry’s autobiography “Reserve”, in interviews and in a Netflix documentary, the couple had sometimes dealt violently against the royal family.
