Meghan Markle has reportedly accused two members of the royal members of making racist remarks, according to revelations in the shocking new book “Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival” by journalist Omid Scobie.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have detailed these allegations in private letters addressed to King Charles III, explicitly naming the individuals involved in those troubling “conversations,” as per a copy ascertained by Page Six.

Meghan Markle talked about concerns over her son Archie’s skin colour

In her revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, Markle, 42, disclosed that a member of the royal family had conveyed “concerns” about the potential skin color of her and Prince Harry’s son, Archie. 

“All around this same time — 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,” the ‘Suits’ alum said, at that time.

When the host, Winfrey, 69, questioned, “About how dark your baby is going to be?,” the duchess responded, “Potentially, and what that would mean or look like,” considering her mixed-race heritage. Despite this revelation, Prince Harry, 39, chose not to delve further into the matter during the interview.

The interview soon hit the media, with Prince William ultimately having to come forward to defend his family.

Not one but two royals allegedly discussed about Archie’s skin

In April, Meghan Markle reportedly communicated with Charles, 75, through a letter discussing the royal family’s alleged “unconscious bias,” according to Page Six. She identified the person responsible for the comments about Archie’s skin in this letter.

However, Scobie’s latest book reveals that a second party was also involved, despite a palace dispute claiming it was only one person. While he doesn’t specify whether the alleged additional person is a royal family member or a staff member, he confirms their association with the royal household.

Additionally, Scobie asserts that he knows the identities of the individuals, but legal constraints in the UK prevent him from revealing them, maintaining their confidentiality.
