Omid Scobie's new memoir, Endgame, is filled with shocking royal bombshell confessions, including more details about the alleged "royal racist."
In 2021, Meghan Markle revealed that an unnamed royal made a concerning remark about Prince Archie's complexion, and Scobie claimed Prince William and Kate Middleton ignored the Duchess of Sussex's initial concerns.
According to the royal expert, Meghan confided in her father-in-law, King Charles, about the conversations people were having about her then-unborn child. The royal patriarch suggested Meghan and Prince Harry share their worries with the Prince and Princess of Wales, but Scobie said the couple didn't respond.
"The silence has caused a lot of confusion and upset," Scobie wrote.
"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time , so we have in tandem the conversation of ‘He won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born," she said.
Despite Meghan's revelation, Harry later clarified that his loved ones weren't "racist" but guilty of "unconscious bias."
“We’re very much not a racist family,” William quickly told reporters.
“If there’s any time in my life that it’s been more focused on my race, it’s only once I started dating my husband,” Meghan admitted. “Then I started to understand what it was like to be treated like a Black woman because up until then, I had been treated like a mixed woman. And things really shifted.”
Meghan's identity also played a role in the duo's Netflix tell-all series, Harry & Meghan.
"[It's] very different to be a minority but not be treated as a minority right off the bat," the Suits star explained. "Obviously, now, people are very aware of my race because they made it such an issue when I went to the U.K. But before that, most people didn't treat me like a 'Black woman.' So that talk didn't have to happen for me."
