MEGHAN Markle wrote to King Charles over “racism” and bullying in the Royal Family, The Telegraph has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex is thought to have sent letters to His Majesty in the wake of the Sussexes Oprah Winfrey interview.
In the explosive 2021 chat, Meghan claimed there were “concerns and conversations” in the Royal Family “about how dark his [Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born”.
Winfrey then asked if her son being “too brown” would be a problem, to which Meghan replied: “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one”.
Following the claims, Meghan is alleged to have received a letter from the then Prince of Wales who expressed sadness over the rift.
The King was also said to be disappointed that Harry and Meghan felt the need to make such high-profile and damaging allegations.
Charles was the only senior member of the family to contact the Duchess after the interview, it is alleged.
Meghan, 41, is thought to have replied to Charles, saying she never intended to accuse the senior member of the family – who her letter allegedly names – of being a racist.
It is understood that both the King and the Duchess acknowledged that the individual’s remark was not made with malice, The Telegraph reports.
The Duchess goes on to say she was only raising concerns of unconscious bias in The Firm before thanking Charles for his kind words, it is claimed.
But despite the correspondence between the estranged daughter and father in-law, a source says Meghan feels she has not received a satisfactory response to her concerns.
As well as unconscious bias, Meghan is reported to feel the handling of bully complaints against her and the allegation that neglect by the institution led her to feel suicidal, have still not been resolved.
Prince Harry will attend the May 6 coronation without Meghan or his two kids, Archie, who turns four on the day of his grandads crowning, and Lillibet, 22 months.
