Meghan Markle claims Royal Family raised concerns over how dark Archie’s skin would be before he was born

MEGHAN Markle tonight revealed there were "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" her son Archie would be when he was born.

The Duchess of Sussex said there had been conversations with herself and Prince Harry about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be - and "what that would mean or look like".

But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging".

Speaking to Oprah, Meghan said she said the concerns had been raised at the same time that the future parents were told Archie would not receive security as he was not a prince.

She said: "All the grandeur around this stuff is not really important to me.

"But in those months when I was pregnant, all around same time: we have in tandem he won’t be given security, a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born."

Asked whether there were concerns that her child would be “too brown” and that would be a problem, Meghan said: “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one.”

It comes as...

And she later said she didn't see a solution.

Oprah had introduced the interview - confirming that "no subject is off limits" and that Meghan had not been paid for the chat.

As the interview began, Meghan, 39, said she grew up knowing much about the Royal Family, adding: "I will say I went into it naively."

When probed by Oprah if she was "silent or silenced", she replied "the latter".

She even revealed she and Prince Harry married three days before their ceremony at Windsor Castle in 2018.

She said she didn't understand what the job was - and joked she had never looked her husband Prince Harry up online.

She added that she had not romanticised the job but admitted all she knew about the Royal Family was what she read in fairy tales.

The bombshell revelations come amid fears Meghan may never return to Britain after the chat.
