the essentials in a nutshell

  • King Charles reportedly didn’t know Meghan Markle was black when they first met.
  • The daughter-in-law accuses the king and the rest of the royal family of racism.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey (68), Meghan Markle (41) made serious accusations of racism against members of the royal family. King Charles, 73, does not want to give titles to his grandchildren Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, because they are of mixed descent.

A new book claims King Charles “had no idea” she was black when he first met Markle. As author Christopher Andersen writes in “The King: The Life of Charles III”, the 73-year-old man only noticed that Meghan reminded him of Pippa Middleton (39).

According to Andersen, the current king thought his future daughter-in-law was “absolutely adorable”. Much later he realized he had a black mother. “Not that it matters at all,” he allegedly told a friend.

Meghan Markle was born in Los Angeles to an African-American mother and a white father. She recently stated that she is 43 percent Nigerian.
