This is Buckingham Palace’s second major report of racism this year. The year was already rife with accusations of racism towards the Royal family from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, including that members of Buckingham Palace had “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born,” the couple revealed on their interview with Oprah in March, to which Prince William responded “We are very much not a racist family.” Buckingham Palace’s statement about the allegation reads, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
