Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have “tarred everyone with the same brush” regarding their comments about racism, and will allegedly “eventually” have to give the name of the Royal Family member who made a racist remark. According to claims made by a royal commentator, the Sussexes have gained their multi-million-pound deals through their “willingness to talk” and will need to maintain that momentum to remain in the spotlight.
Speaking to Palace Confidential, commentator Julia Hartley-Brewer claimed: “This is the issue isn’t it, are they going to name names eventually about which royal it was that they accused of making what they considered to have been a racist remark about their unborn baby, Archie, before I think she was even pregnant with him.
“They’ve tarred everyone with the same brush so they’re going to have to name names, and this is the problem with their accusations.
“Via friends, everyone is under no doubt that there is certainly information being given to these authors which is coming from somewhere very close to this couple.
“Eventually, you’re going to run out of things to say.
“Well, effectively they’re not selling it for money right now but they’re still in the news because of what they are willing to give away, the reason why they get their Netflix deals and the book deals, it’s because of their willingness to talk openly about this stuff.
“Eventually, you’ve criticised this far, and then the headline writers want a new headline and they want it to go further and further and further.
“More intimate details, more juicy gossip, more negative stuff, so where does it go from here?”
The couple first made the explosive allegation during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
During her solo appearance with Oprah, Meghan Markle said there had been “conversations” about “how dark” the couple’s child would be, and suggested that this might have had an impact on Archie being denied a royal title.
After joining Meghan, Prince Harry said he had been “shocked” by the conversation.
The Sussexes refused to divulge which senior royal had made the racist remark, stating that it would be “very damaging” to reveal the person’s identity.
In a follow-up interview with Gayle King, Oprah Winfrey said she had been stunned by the allegation, and said that the couple had made it known to her that neither the Queen nor Prince Philip had made the remark.
The allegation caused a PR crisis for Buckingham Palace, and prompted Prince William to respond, “We are very much not a racist family” when asked by reporters.
Buckingham Palace later issued a statement to say: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
Prince Harry has continued to speak negatively of his experiences with the Royal Family in subsequent interviews.
He told podcast host Dax Shephard that life within the Royal Family was similar to “being in a zoo” and spoke of the “genetic pain and suffering” within the family.
The Duke’s memoir, which is due to be released in late 2022, also promises to shed further light into his and Meghan’s rift with their royal relatives. The memoir promises to give an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of the Prince’s life.
