Prince Charles has reportedly called in his lawyers after he was accused of being the ‘royal racist’ alluded to by Harry and Meghan in their bombshell Oprah interview.
The couple made headlines across the world in March when they suggested a senior member of the royal family asked what colour Archie’s skin would be.
Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan, a book by author Christopher Andersen, has now claimed Charles, 73, was the royal.
A spokesperson for the Prince of Wales has strongly denied the claims, stating: “This is fiction and not worth further comment.”
The book claims Charles questioned what his grandchild’s complexion might look like during a conversation with wife Camilla over breakfast.
The alleged discussion supposedly took place on the morning Harry and Meghan’s engagement was officially announced, November 27, 2017, the book states.
A source told the royal author that Charles allegedly said to Camilla: “I wonder what the children will look like.”
The book claims she was “somewhat taken aback” by the comment, and responded: “Well, absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain.”
The insider also claimed Charles then lowered his voice and asked: “I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?”
Andersen wrote that “scheming courtiers” then gave Charles’ alleged words “a racist spin”.
A Page Six report claimed the alleged conversation then “reached toxic proportions” by the time Harry and Meghan were informed.
Charles, according to The Sun, is calling in the lawyers over the claims in the book.

An insider told The Sun: “The claims are utterly ridiculous.
“There is more of a concern that commenting on it will simply sell more books than actually damage Charles’ reputation.”
Buckingham Palace said last night: “We don’t comment on books of this kind as to do so risks giving it some form of authority or credibility.”
After the interview with Oprah in March, Harry agreed and said he would “never share” the full details of the discussion.
Oprah later revealed it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh who made the comment, telling CBS This Morning: “He did not share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother or grandfather that were part of those conversations.”
