Meghan Markle, wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, said the British Royal family expressed concern on the skin tone of her son Archie and denied him the title of prince as a result.

Speaking to Oprah Winfrey on CBS late on Sunday, the Duchess of Sussex said she was naive before she married Harry in 2018 and ended up having suicidal thoughts and contemplated self-harm after asking for help but getting none.

She declined to say who had aired such concerns, though insinuations were made towards ‘The Firm’, a loose reference to the royal executives and their powerful associates.

In 2005, journalist Penny Junor wrote The Firm: The Troubled Life of the House of Windsor, in which she claims Prince Philip came up with the nickname. 

According to the New York Times, “The Firm” dates back to Queen Elizabeth II’s father, King George VI, who ruled from 1936 to 1952 after his brother abdicated the throne, and his famous quote: “British royals are ‘not a family, we’re a firm.'”

“They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn’t going to receive security,” Markle said in an exclusive interview with the famed talk show host.

“In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, ‘you won’t be given security, not gonna be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” she said.

She declined to say who had aired such concerns, though insinuations were made towards ‘The Firm’, a loose reference to the royal executives and their powerful associates.

Asked if she was silent or had been silenced, she replied: “The latter”.

The highly anticipated interview comes amid an acrimonious dispute between Markle and Harry on one side and the British monarchy on the other.

The couple, who married in 2018, have stepped down from their royal duties and are now living in California.

Critics accuse them of wanting all the glamour of their positions without the dedication it requires or the scrutiny it brings.

Al Jazeera wrote:

“To their supporters, their treatment shows how an outdated British institution has lashed out against a modern, biracial woman with undertones of racism. 

“That accusation is likely to gather momentum in light of Markle’s comments about her son.”

Buckingham Palace did not comment on the interview but said it would investigate the bullying claims, adding, it was “very concerned”.

According to Markle, people within the royal institution not only failed to protect her against malicious claims but lied to protect others.

“It was only once we were married and everything started to really worsen that I came to understand that not only was I not being protected but that they were willing to lie to protect other members of the family.

“There’s the family and then there’s the people that are running the institution, those are two separate things and it’s important to be able to compartmentalise that because the queen, for example, has always been wonderful to me,” she said.

Markle denied a newspaper story that she had made Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s wife, cry before the wedding and said it was a turning point in her relations with the media.

“That was a turning point,” Markle said. Asked if she made Middleton cry, Markle replied: “The reverse happened.”

“A few days before the wedding she (Kate) was upset about something, pertaining to yes the issue was correct about the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings,” Markle said.

Markle told Winfrey she had been naive before her wedding and did not realise what she was marrying into when she joined the British royal family.

“I will say I went into it naively because I didn’t grow up knowing much about the royal family.”
