Prince Charles, Prince William Allegedly Told Prince Harry He Was ‘Oversensetive’ About Archie’s Skin Tone Comment

Prince Harry was shocked after he confronted Prince Charles and Prince William about unnecessary comments made about his future child’s skin color.

The claim was made by author Christopher Andersen in his new book titled “Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan.”

Andersen alleges in his book that it was Charles who speculated about Archie’s skin tone before he was born.

“I was able to trace this back to a comment that was made by Prince Charles to [Duchess] Camilla on the day that the announcement of Harry and Meghan’s engagement was made,” Andersen told Us Weekly on Wednesday. “And what he did was casually turn to her like any grandparent to be would do and say, ‘I wonder what their children will look like, hair color, eye color, complexion.’”

“He did it fondly, but the problem is it was… misconstrued, contorted over a period of time by the bureaucrats and the palace – the people who [Princess] Diana used to call the ‘men in gray’ – and they really weaponized that and turned it into something that was quite nasty by the time it reached Harry’s ear,” he added.

Andersen went on to claim that Harry, 37, confronted his father, 73, and older brother, 39, about the remark in question. And their response was to tell him he was “oversensitive” and “overreacting.”

“That complicated what was already a very complicated situation,” said Andersen.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace later informed Fox News that “we never comment on these sort of books.” 

Back in March of 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down for a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they revealed disturbing incidents while with the royal family.

It was Markle, 40, who first addressed the unnamed member of the royal family who had “concerns” about the color of her child’s skin before he was born.

Harry did note that it was not the queen nor Prince Philip, leaving many to question exactly who said it.

A source close to the royal family alleged to Andersen that Charles wondered aloud about the child’s complexion during a conversation in 2017 that took place shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex got engaged.

“I wonder what the children will look like?” Charles reportedly told his wife Camilla, per Page Six. Camilla was reportedly “somewhat taken aback” and noted that the child would be “gorgeous.”
