Meghan Markle is revealing details about the conversations surrounding her and Prince Harry‘s son Archie not being made a Prince, as well as a bombshell over what a family member said about Archie‘s skin tone.
“They didn’t want him to be a prince. Which would be different from protocol. And he wasn’t going to receive security. This went on for the last few months of our pregnancy,” Meghan revealed during Oprah with Meghan and Harry. Apparently, if you are given an “HRH” title (His/Her Royal Highness), you are given protection. Archie was not given an HRH title at birth.
When asked if the “Prince” title for Archie was important to her, she said, “If it meant he was gonna be safe…of course…the idea of our son not being safe….the first member of color not being titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be.”
Meghan was then asked if he wasn’t given a title over his race.
“In those months that I was pregnant…we had in tandem the conversation that he won’t be given security. He’s not gonna be given a title. And also, concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
This caused Oprah to say, “WHAT? There’s a conversation with you about how dark your baby is going to be?”
“Potentially, and what that would mean or look like,” Meghan said.
“And you’re not gonna tell me who?,” Oprah said.
“I think that would be very damaging to them,” Meghan responded.
Meghan added this was a conversation Harry‘s family had with him and was later relayed to Meghan.
This turned into a conversation about representation, and the fear the royals may have had over Archie‘s skin tone.
