Meghan Markle's Dad Thomas Reacts to Member of Royal Family Commenting on Archie's Skin Tone

During Oprah with Meghan and Harry, Meghan Markle revealed that a member of the royal family inquired about what Archie‘s skin tone may have looked like when he was born.

Meghan said there were “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.

Thomas Markle went on Good Morning Britain this morning and was asked about this allegation.

“The thing about what color will the baby be or how dark will the baby be, I’m guessing and hoping it’s just a dumb question from somebody,” he said. “It could be somebody asked a stupid question rather than being a total racist.”

“I have great respect for the royals, and I don’t think the British royal family are racist at all,” Thomas said. “I don’t think the British are racist. I think Los Angeles is racist, California is a racist, but I don’t think the Brits are.”

Oprah did eventually reveal which two royals were NOT part of these conversations.

Meghan did speak about her relationship with her estranged father during the tell all.
