The brothers argued in the gardens of Kensington Palace, and Harry didn't hold back when talking to his older brother.

"What causes problems isn't color, it's culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a royal," William said.

"You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism," Harry snapped back. "As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying."

Harry also gets into an argument with his father, Prince Charles, since the latter refused to talk about the issues at hand.

In real life, Harry, 36, and Meghan, 40, revealed that someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color.

“They didn’t want him to be a prince or a princess. He wasn’t going to receive security,” the former actress said. “We’re not saying don’t make him a prince, but if you’re saying the title is what’s going to affect the protection, our son needs to be safe.”

Harry has yet to reveal who made the absurd comments.

“That conversation, I am never going to share,” Harry told Oprah Winfrey. “At the time, it was awkward, I was a bit shocked.”

Harry also said that one of the reasons he and Meghan left the royal family was due to the tabloids constantly hounding his wife.

“For us, for this union and the specifics around her race, there was an opportunity — many opportunities — for my family to show some public support,” he said. “And I guess one of the most telling parts and the saddest parts, I guess, was over 70 female members of Parliament, both Conservative and Labour, came out and called out the colonial undertones of articles and headlines written about Meghan. Yet no one from my family ever said anything. That hurts.”
