Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has reportedly written a letter to King Charles III, expressing her concerns about the alleged racism within the royal family. The revelations come after Markle and Prince Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
In the letter, Markle allegedly claimed that the royal family, including King Charles III, were racist and that a senior royal was prejudiced towards her.
The letter also mentions “concerns and conversations” about the color of their unborn son’s skin.
Letters between Charles and Markle
Markle reportedly wrote the letter to King Charles III with her concerns about “unconscious bias.” The letters between the two acknowledged that the individual’s remark was not made with malice.
The Prince of Wales reportedly wrote back to Markle expressing his “deep concern” and disappointment with the couple for the damaging allegations.
He added that he supported both Harry and Markle “more than he would care to say.”
The revelation of the letters between Charles and Markle comes weeks before the king’s coronation.
The outlet reported that the Palace was aware of the Sussexes’ frustration that initial email correspondence about the Coronation made no reference to their children and their potential involvement.
The omission only fueled their feeling that their family plays second fiddle to the Wales’s.
