Meghan and Harry interview with Oprah: The couple during the interview described painful palace discussions about the color of their son’s skin and also losing royal protection.
Meghan spoke on royal “concerns” about “how dark” her son’s skin would be, saying Harry revealed to her official concerns over Archie’s appearance, as well as the security he would be entitled to, ahead of his birth on May 6, 2019.
While Winfrey sat in silence, Meghan said she struggled to understand why there were concerns within the royal family about her son’s skin color. She said it was hard for her to “compartmentalize” those conversations.
Meghan, the actor formerly known as Meghan Markle who starred in the TV drama “Suits,” said she grew concerned about her son not having a royal title because it meant he wouldn’t be provided security.
“In those months when I was pregnant… 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,” Meghan told Winfrey.
