LONDON -- Meghan, the wife of Prince Harry, said the British royal family refused to make her son Archie a prince partly due to conversations about how dark his skin might be.

“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,” Meghan said in an interview aired on CBS late on Sunday.

“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.”

Asked who the conversation was with: “I think that would be very damaging to them.”
