Meghan Markle reportedly wrote to King Charles and named the royal who made the ‘skin color’ remark about her unborn son.
The Duchess of Sussex sent the letter after their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During that interview, she and her husband Prince Harry revealed that a senior royal questioned the skin color of their child.
Their allegations sent shockwaves through the monarchy as they expressed their disgust at ‘concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.’
This also forced Prince William to defend the royal family by saying: “We are very much not a racist family.”
After the tell-all interview, the Duchess of Sussex expressed her grave concerns about ‘unconscious bias’ in the Firm.
An insider claimed that Meghan felt she had not ‘received a satisfactory response to her concerns, and that is believed to be one factor in her decision not to attend the Coronation.’
The source also said that the Duchess’ letter was sent in reply to one from the then Prince of Wales, adding that Charles was the only senior royal to contact the Sussexes after the Oprah interview.
Meghan’s letters “make clear the identity of the senior member of the family who made the comment.”
The King and the Duchess of Sussex accepted the comment was not made with malice.
Meghan will stay at home with children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet in California while her husband will fly to the UK to be a part of his father’s Coronation.
A source told Mirror that the monarch is ‘delighted’ at his son’s decision to return to the UK for the big day.

That remark has been so blown out of proportion. Good grief, I’d be curious too. So what? When I was pregnant we talked about whether the baby would be blond or brunette, have blue eyes or brown, have my easily tanning skin or my brother’s fair burn-by-looking at the sun. Speculations like these are common and normal. They have made a disgusting mountain of idiocy out of this little molehill. Time to lay it to rest already.
It doesn’t matter it’s in the past. Look at history, it’s rare but has happened a white person has had a different coloured baby and a the opposite way around. So I am not a racist person and I think this story should be put to bed once and for all. The world has too many other problems in it to be worried about the colour of one’s skin.
I think that Meghan is over reacting. If she were total caucasian and still look the same way she looks now, with the dark hair and eyes, she would not be offended. It’s natural to ask the question “ I wonder how dark the baby skin is going to be” when the parents hair and skin color are very different from each other?
I don’t think the royal meant to hurt Meghan’s feelings.
Forgive, and you will be forgiven!
