Meghan Markle ready to ‘name and shame royal who made race remark palace fears’

Buckingham Palace doesn't "trust" Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won't name the royal they accused of racism in their Oprah Winfrey interview.

The Sussexes made the bombshell claim that a member of the Royal Family was "concerned" about how "dark" their son Archie's skin colour would be.

Prince Charles is said to be "in despair" over Harry and Meghan's jaw-dropping tell-all aired in the US on Sunday.

The Duke would not reveal the person’s identity during the interview but Oprah later said he told her it is not the Queen or Prince Philip.

A palace insider told the Evening Standard: “A denial could lead the Sussexes breaking their vow and naming the member of the royal family who discussed their son’s skin colour. There is a lack of trust."

They added denying allegations leveled against them without knowing the context of the claims "could lead to the Sussexes naming names and it blowing up again.”

Meghan claimed that she was refused help after revealing she had been suffering from suicidal thoughts, and said a royal had expressed concerns about how dark Archie's skin would be.

Harry alleged that the couple were financially cut off in the first quarter of 2020, and that dad Prince Charles had stopped taking his calls after Megxit.

The pair generally avoided criticising the Queen, with Meghan at one point calling her "warm and engaging".

Charles, 72, was reportedly particularly concerned at the claims of racism being levelled at his family by his own son and daughter-in-law.

A source said: "It goes against everything the Prince of Wales believes in. He believes diversity is the strength of our society.

"The Prince of Wales went out of his way to make sure his son and daughter in law were financially supported."

Buckingham Palace on Tuesday released a statement on behalf of the Queen in reaction to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Oprah Winfrey interview.

It said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."
