According to royal expert Omid Scobie, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were carrying out a morning engagement at @school21_uk in east London, where they spoke to teachers about the challenges they have faced during the pandemic and how they have adapted to the school re-opening earlier this week."

During the chat with Winfrey, the couple revealed that one person in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color. 

"They didn’t want [Archie] to be a prince," she claimed, adding that since he didn't have a title, "he wasn’t going to receive security. This went on through the last few months of our pregnancy."

"There is no explanation. There is no version. I heard a lot it through Harry and other parts of it with conversations with family members and it was a decision they felt was appropriate," she said. 

"The idea of our son not being safe and the idea of the first member of color in this family not being titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be..." she explained. "It’s not their right to take it away and so I think even with that convention, they want to change the convention for Archie. Well, why?"

Following the interview, Winfrey confirmed Prince Philip or Queen Elizabeth II were in on those conversations
