Markle revealed that “concerns and conversations about how dark his (Archie's) skin might be when he’s born” were brought up to her husband ahead of her son’s birth. Winfrey’s shocked reaction: "What?"

“You’re not going to tell me who had that conversation?" Winfrey asked Meghan.

 “I think that would be very damaging to them,” Markle continued.

In the book, 'Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan', author Christopher Andersen said that Prince Charles asked what the "complexion" of the child would be.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the wife of Prince Charles was apparently "somewhat taken aback" and replied: "Well, absolutely gorgeous, I'm certain," Page Six said.

A spokesperson for the prince has since slammed the book by author Andersen saying: "This is fiction and not worth further comment."
