Meghan stated that there were concerns about how dark the skin of Archie’s, her son, would be during her pregnancy. She was told how when Archie was born; he would not be getting any protection or security from the Royal Family, unlike the other royal children. They have not stated the proper reason behind such a statement, but the viewers speculate the reason to be his skin tone. Although it is still an allegation, since the interview, the issue of racism has not cooled down and has taken a significant toll on the image of the British Royal Family. The British Royal Family has announced that the issue will be taken seriously and that it will be dealt with in the family, by the family. Public opinions have been divided: those who are supporting Meghan and emphasizing the necessity of a change within the institution and others standing behind the royal family, criticizing Harry and Meghan for making such remarks despite the hospitalization of Prince Philip after a heart procedure.
