A British author is certain: it was Camilla. Palace insiders see it differently.
According to the Daily Mail, palace insiders have denied rumors that a new book about Duchess Camilla has circulated. It claims the Duchess of Cornwall joked to Prince Harry about his then-unborn son: It would be “funny” if he had “red Afro hair”.
The claim comes from Tom Bower’s work “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors”. The book was published on July 21st. According to media reports, Duchess Meghan in particular comes off badly, who is said to be described as “egocentric, manipulative and demanding”.
Interview with Oprah Winfrey caused a stir
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan themselves made it public that there was a racist comment about their first unborn child Archie. They resigned as working royals in early 2020 and moved to California, Meghan’s homeland.
In March 2021, they chatted with US talk show legend Oprah Winfrey on TV in front of an audience of millions about royal family matters. It was also about the racist saying about Archie. According to Meghan, there were concerns about “how dark his skin could be when he was born”.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not name a name in the TV interview. Winfrey later stressed that she was instructed by the Sussexes to clarify that the spell did not come from Harry’s grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Who made the comment about Archie?
Since then, Royal fans have been puzzled as to who might be behind it. Bowers’ claims that Camilla joked about Archie’s hair are just the latest in a long line of rumors about it. Royal sources called the allegations against Camilla “nonsense”, according to “Mail Online”. The palace itself has not yet commented.
Tom Bower’s new book includes more royal rumours. Among other things, the author claims that the Queen is said to have been happy that Duchess Meghan did not travel with Prince Harry for Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021.
The former actress was pregnant with the couple’s second child at the time. Lilibet was born in June 2021. “Thank God Meghan isn’t coming,” Bower reportedly told officials before the funeral. According to media reports, insiders also consider this unlikely.
