The Queen's 'recollections may vary' comment 'did not go unnoticed' by Harry and Meghan

A revised edition of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's biography addresses The Queen's response to the couple's racism claims

The Queen's "recollections may vary" comment made after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made allegations of racism within the Royal family "did not go unnoticed," according to a friend of the couple.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, aged 36 and 40 respectively, made the explosive claim that members of the Royal family had "concerns" about "how dark" their son Archie's skin may have been in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March.

"'Months later and little accountability has been taken', a pal of Meghan added. 'How can you move forward with that?'"

Meghan said in the interview – which has since been nominated for an Emmy Award – of her pregnancy with two year old son Archie: "In those months when I was pregnant, we had in tandem the conversations of him not being given security or a title, and also concerns about how dark his skin might be when he's born.

"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."

Oprah enquired for more details, but Meghan refused to name the royal member who made the comments, saying it would be "very damaging to them."

The presenter later said that Prince Harry had told her off camera: "He did not share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure that I knew and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother nor his grandfather that were a part of those conversations.

"Neither his grandmother nor grandfather were a part of those conversations."

Buckingham Palace issued a statement shortly after the special programme aired, saying: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.

"Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."

A representative for Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on this story when approached by OK! online.
