The Oprah sat down with the disaffected duchess Meghan Markle and her beleaguered husband Prince Harry for “the interview.” The expose aired Sunday night and Markle didn’t hold back airing every grievance she could find to slight the British monarchs.
The most scandalous of Markle’s insinuations is that some unnamed member of the British royal family had sough information about the skin color of her future firstborn son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
“In those months, when I was pregnant, all around this same time, we had in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he won’t be given a title … and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin will be when he’s born,” said Meghan. “That was relayed to me from Harry, that was from conversations that family had with him. It was really hard to see those as compartmentalized conversations.”
“You’re not going to tell me who had that conversation?" Oprah asks after Meghan says there were concerns about her child's skin color

“You’re not going to tell me who had that conversation?” Oprah asked.
“I think that would be very damaging to them,” Markle replied.
And that, as they say, was that.
But not for Piers Morgan, who eviscerated Markle’s vague accusation.
“Let’s have a name rather than allowing everyone to think it could be anyone in the palace,” Piers Morgan said on Fox & Friends. “It could be the queen, Prince Philip, it could be Charles, it could be Camilla, it could be any of them. Let’s have a name.”
“If somebody did say this in a racist, derogatory way, then that would clearly be completely unacceptable and outrageous, but I wonder, who is that person?” he continued. “What was that conversation? What was the context they said — because until we know the answers to all these questions, we have a whole family being labeled as basically racist.”
That’s exactly right, but that appears to be the standard operation of Woke smear merchants like Markle. Brian Kilmeade pointed out Markle didn’t even claim to have heard the remarks herself. Seems all-too-familiar.
“She said several conversations,” Morgan pointed out. “Harry then said it was one conversation when they soon got together. Now I don’t know what that conversation was or who it was with.”
“But is it beyond the realms of fantasy that one of the older members of the royal family on hearing that Harry was with this girl from a mixed race background herself, may have asked completely innocently, ‘Oh, that’s interesting, so the father’s white, mom’s black, what would that mean for any children you have, what color might they be?’ It may be as simple and innocent or that. Or maybe it was said in a derogatory way and in which case it’s disgusting racism, in which case I as a British subject, I want to know who said that.”
“Which member of the royal family, is it one of our future monarchs who used such a derogatory racist slur?” Morgan continued. “But the fact that Harry said ‘I will never tell you.’ I’m sorry that’s just cowardly. You can’t ignite the race button in the way he’s done here and smear all of them at once and not actually come clean and say well this is who said it.”
Morgan then laid into Markle for making the scandalous accusation.
“I think there is some seriously defamatory things that are being said,” Morgan continued. “And already what I’m feeling, I can see it on social media, the hatred that is now building against the royal family based on these completely wild unsubstantiated stories that Meghan and Harry put out there.”
“And I think particularly damaging is this claim that Archie was prevented from being made a prince because of his skin color,” Morgan added. “Because the only person that will make that decision is the queen, who is 94 years old, been on our throne for six decades, never put a foot wrong, doesn’t have a racist bone in her body, is the queen of the commonwealth with millions of people who are black skin, brown skin, certainly many non-whites in the commonwealth, and the idea is that the queen is somehow a latent racist presiding over all of this, I just find despicable that that is even being suggested.”
Meghan Markle may not be a princess, but she really is a drama queen. What a royal pain in the ass.
