KING CHARLES AND PRINCE WILLIAM IN ‘CRISIS TALKS’?

The royal family is reportedly seeking to do some damage control after a Dutch version of Omid Scobie’s new book End Game accidently named King Charles and Kate Middleton for allegedly making “racist” comments. These “racist” comments was expressing concerns over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie’s skin colour as revealed in the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“Discussions are being had, and we’ll continue those discussions this week. Conversations will be had and decisions made with care and time and professionalism rather than rushed over a weekend,” a source said to the Telegraph.

The publication also reports that palace aides are meeting this week to discuss “all options” in response to the claims, including potentially taking legal action.

  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex did a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021. In the interview, Meghan said that a member of the royal family “expressed concerns” over the skin colour of their son Archie. No names were revealed in the interview.
  • At the time, Prince William defended his family saying “we’re very much not a racist family,” according to The Guardian.
  • Scobie then claimed that Meghan accused two members of the royal household of making racist remarks, not one like previously believed.
  • The journalist wrote that Meghan penned a private letter of King Charles III, naming two people who took part in those “conversations” as reported by Page Six.
  • This was the first time a second party has been said to have been involved in the “racist comments”. However, a palace representative refuted the claim to the publication, saying it was only one person.
  • While Scobie did not name names in the English version of the book, reports claimed that the Dutch version of the book accidently named the royals.
