Camilla Parker Bowles is not the senior royal who made the alleged racist comments about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children, multiple sources tell Page Six.
The allegations came from a new book, “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors” by Tom Bower. It reports that, in the early days of Harry and Markle’s romance in 2016, the Duchess of Cornwall — Harry’s stepmother — remarked during one conversation with her stepson, ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if your child had ginger Afro hair?’”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex first made their claims that a member of the royal family had asked what skin color their future child would have in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021 — but would not name the culprit, only later ruling out Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
However, one highly-placed source told Page Six: “Camilla is not racist — I can tell you categorically she is not the royal who Harry and Meghan were talking about.”
Page Six has previously reported that Harry is not a big fan of his stepmother, but another palace insider said: “Yes, Harry may not love Camilla, but that goes back years — way before he met Meghan and their marriage. And that has nothing to do with any alleged racism.”
In the book, Bower also reports that the Sussexes may have fled the UK and the royal family over issues with Camilla, and speculates that Harry will expose her as “racist” in his upcoming memoir.
“The Sussexes’ suspicion that the Duchess of Cornwall had made racist comments about [their then-unborn son] Archie had fueled their fearsome denunciation of the entire royal family,” Bower writes.
Insiders told Page Six that the Sussexes are believed to not be reading the book and will not be responding to its claims.
