A new book claims Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, privately discussed with his wife Camilla the likely “complexion” of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future kids following their engagement announcement on Nov. 27, 2017.

The potentially devastating accusation appears in "Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan," the latest book by the New York Times best-selling author Christopher Andersen.

According to a well-placed source who contributed to the royal book, Prince Charles mused to his second wife, Camilla, during breakfast the same day the engagement of Harry and Meghan was announced at 5 a.m. on Nov. 27, 2017, Page Six reported.

“I wonder what the children look like?” the senior royal reportedly asked. “I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?”

The book would also claim that the “somewhat taken-aback” Camila would reply to her husband, “Well, absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain.”

While Andersen would refuse to confirm if Charles is the unnamed “senior royal” whom Harry and Meghan sensationally accused of racism during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, many sources are claiming the intimation is there.

In the March TV sit-down with Winfrey, Meghan revealed there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [her and Harry’s son, Archie’s] skin might be when he was born," the Daily Beast noted.

However, Andersen presents the incident as if scheming courtiers gave the curiosity of Charles a racist spin. He said the account of the breakfast exchange had already been repackaged before it reached the ears of Harry and Meghan.

He would also blame the group of high-level palace advisors, known as the “Men in Gray,” for turning Charles' comments into controversial remarks.

“The question posed by Charles was being echoed less innocently throughout the halls of Buckingham Palace,” Andersen writes. "Their gossip focused on how the royals would “look to the rest of the world” once African-American blood became part of the mix.

The book also tackles Harry’s frustration upon hearing the appalling news and would complain to Charles about the issue. According to another insider, the Prince of Wales told his youngest son he was being “overly sensitive about the matter.”

This unsympathetic view would also be shared by his brother Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, who allegedly labeled the skin tone comment “tactless” but “not a sign of racism within the family.”

Moreover, the author claims the situation was worsened by Queen Elizabeth II, who reportedly asked a film crew to remove a portrait of Harry, Meghan, and Archie before recording her traditional Christmas message in 2019.

“All were fine but one," the nonagenarian allegedly said before pointing to the family photo of Harry. “That one. I suppose we don’t need that one," according to TMZ.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the queen would refuse to comment on the matter, claiming doing so to a fiction book would "give it some form of authority or credibility.”
