At her much-anticipated meeting with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday (March 7th), Meghan Markle dropped a bombshell on the racist talks at Buckingham Palace while pregnant with their first child.
During their conversation, Oprah noted that Meghan, whose mother is black and father is white, was the first mixed race person to marry into the British royal family when she tied the knot with Prince Harry.

Meghan told Oprah that while she was pregnant, there were conversations with her son Archie about not giving him security or title, as well as "concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he is born".
"What?" Oprah replied in shock.
Harry declined to give Oprah the details of his conversations (presumably with close family members) when comments about their children's skin color surfaced.
"I was a bit shocked," he admitted.
He stated that these discussions "in the beginning" took place before the couple got married.
In 2020, the couple announced the shocking news that they were stepping down from their roles as high-ranking royals, citing the interference by the British media with their personal life and their racist attitudes towards Meghan.
Harry told Oprah that his family did not recognize the role Meghan's race played in the higher levels of abuse in the UK media compared to other members of the royal family.
He noted that 72 Members of the UK Parliament condemned the "outdated, colonial overtones" of the racist media coverage of Meghan.
"This was an opportunity for my family to show their public support," said Harry, but they were silent.
