In an interview with American talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle has revealed that there were concerns about her first child Archie’s skin colour in the British royal family when she was pregnant.
“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 Oprah during Sunday’s interview aired on CBS.
When Oprah inquired about the person behind the concerns, Meghan replied: “I think that would be very damaging to them.”
Prince Harry was also a part the show who said that he felt “really let down” by his father Prince Charles as he and wife Meghan discussed about leaving Britain over her harsh treatment by the British press and the lack of support from the royal family.
During the explosive television interview, Meghan also claimed that she was suicidal during her tough days of mental crisis after joining the royal family.
“I… just didn’t want to be alive anymore. And that was a very clear and real and frightening constant thought,” Meghan told Oprah.
The Sunday’s interview is being regarded as similar to Princess Diana’s 1995 interview with BBC for all its criticism towards the British monarchy.
