Meghan Markle and Prince Harry set social media on fire yesterday after their exclusive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey on CBS. The former Royal couple kept dropping bombs and Twitter was there for all of it.
Among the many things revealed is that Prince Charles, Harry’s father, stopped taking his son’s calls at one point, the Royal Family refused to give security to baby Archie and Meghan was suicidal during her first pregnancy. However, one of the most disturbing moments was about Archie’s skin tone before he was even born.
Meghan told Oprah that while she was pregnant, there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
“What?” Oprah replied in shock.
Harry declined to share with Oprah the details of conversations he had (presumably with close family members) when comments about the skin color of their children were made.
“I was a bit shocked,” he admitted.
He stated that those discussions happened “at the beginning,” before the couple got married.
In 2020, the couple announced the shocking news that they would step down from their roles as senior royals, citing British media intrusions into their personal lives and its racist attitudes toward Meghan.
Harry said he was cut off financially by his family and the only way he was able to provide for his wife and child was due to the money his mother Princess Diana left him. She was killed in a car crash in 1997 and was also outspoken about how she was treated by the Royal Family.
And another fun fact, Markle revealed that Tyler Perry let the family stay at his home in California and provided them with security.
