I cried myself to sleep and woke up this morning still fuming mad. Like most of the world, I watched the interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry last night. And though there was a lot of things that made me mad, the biggest – someone in the institution made a comment about Archie and the color of his skin.
Meghan talked about the incident at first in her solo part of the interview and said that someone in the Royal Family had, “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin was going to be when he was born.” And when Harry joined Meghan, Oprah asked him about the conversation, and he said, “That conversation, I’m never going to share. It was awkward and I was a bit shocked.”
The internet jumped to wondering who it was and like many, I am still trying to figure out who it could be. That person is a racist and that is a conversation that never, ever should have happened. Meghan and Harry wouldn’t give a name, and as usual, they protected names and people involved.
They told their truth without sacrificing anyone, which in my opinion is a testament to how strong and loyal these two are.
“He wanted to make sure that I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother, nor his grandfather that were part of those conversations,” Winfrey said. “He did not tell me who were a part of those conversations, as you can see I tried to get that answer, on camera and off.”
