Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall Did Not Make Racist Comment About Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Son Archie, Source Reveals
It's been over one year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle accused a senior royal of saying racist remarks about their son, Archie, and now a source claims Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is not the one who said the comments.
“Camilla is not racist — I can tell you categorically she is not the royal who Harry and Meghan were talking about," a source shared.
“Yes, Harry may not love Camilla, but that goes back years — way before he met Meghan and their marriage. And that has nothing to do with any alleged racism," the insider added.
While speaking with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, the duo got candid about why they wanted to leave the royal family.
"In those months when I was pregnant ... there were also concerns or conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born. There’s several conversations ... with Harry. And what that would mean or look like," Meghan claimed.

Winfrey tried to get to the bottom of who had those thoughts, but Harry didn't give any more details. "I think that would very damaging to them. That was relayed to me from Harry, those were conversations family had with him and it was really hard to be able to see those as compartmentalized conversations," he said.
According to Winfrey, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were not involved in those conversations.

Royal expert Penny Junor believes that Prince Harry, 37, could have the opportunity to reveal who made the comments in his new book.
“The publishers are going to want a lot for their money, such as naming this so-called racist," she said.
“He’s researching his mother’s life so he’s going to be talking about his parents’ marriage, the break up, the affairs. That could be incredibly damaging for his father and Camilla. Charles is going to be king and Camilla his queen. The last thing they or the country needs is another upsurge of anger based on what I believe to be false, false accusations," she continued.
