Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have been through many trials together ever since they started dating up until today, but the most devastating issue to them was possibly the racism toward their unborn child.
The two considered exposing the royal that allegedly made the racist remark before the birth of their firstborn son Archie.
The British royal and the Suits actress thought about “sharing this detail” in their bombshell TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to an updated edition of a biography entitled Finding Freedom by authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.
After careful consideration and thorough discussion among the couple, they eventually decided on keeping the info private for a specific reason.
“I think it would be very damaging to them,” Meghan told the TV host.

According to Page Six, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made claims about the unnamed royal, who allegedly asked “how dark” their unborn child would be. Notably, it was Meghan who first made the revelation. Taking that detail in mind, Oprah asked Harry if he would drop names.
“That conversation I’m never going to share, but at the time, it was awkward; I was a bit shocked,” the Prince replied. However, he made sure to mention that that particular royal was not Queen Elizabeth nor his deceased grandfather, Prince Philip.
The unaddressed race allegations have threatened the British royal family’s reputation around the world, as per Scobie and Durand.
In fact, a staff from the Buckingham Palace asked the authors: “There is a feeling that if it’s ignored it will go away, but surely by now they should have learned that never happens?”

An epilogue to the update of Finding Freedom has made rounds online, and it showed a series of dramatic claims about the couple, their relationship, and falling out with the Royal Family from the exclusive interview in March.
Meghan regarded the interview as “cathartic” and “liberating” after finally revealing her life behind the Palace walls. Her brother-in-law, Prince William, on the other hand, was “furious” by the broadcast. Meanwhile, the Queen did not watch the tell-all, as the book states.
The same publication also noted that Harry and Meghan have “repeatedly insisted that the biography was unauthorized and that they had not offered any co-operation.” However, some claim that the book’s authors have a close relationship with the couple. It was also revealed that the updated edition, with a new epilogue, is due to be published next week.
The book further stated that brothers Harry and William have been in regular contact, while the former only had “light speaking terms” with his father Prince Charles during Prince Philip’s funeral.
A source close to Harry and Meghan also revealed that the tell-all “will force people to talk in order for the healing to begin.” However, “it will take time to get past the hurt,” the insider admitted.
“There has to be some acknowledgment of understanding about what the Sussexes went through in order for there to be progress,” the same source added.
