The whole world is saddened to hear of shocking revelations made by the royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle against the Queen of England and the Royal Family.
The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and 6th in line to the throne. He is also the second son of the first child of the Queen, Prince Charles, and the late Princess Diana. He got married to an American and former actress, Meghan Markle in 2018. Meghan’s mother is an African American and her father is a Caucasian. So the Duchess of Sussex identifies herself as “half black and half white”. The royal couple birthed a son in 2019 and are expecting a baby girl in summer this year.
In an interview with veteran American host, Oprah Winfrey, the royal couple alleged that their first child was denied security and a title (prince at birth) due to his mixed race. This is because, Meghan Markle stated that much of the time, all conversations and concerns were centered on how dark their child’s skin might be when he is born taking into consideration that Meghan is half black. This topic particularly made Megan consider suicide as she puts it that she “didn’t want to live anymore”.
Though the royal couple have refused to name who was having this conversation with them, the concerns raised are racial in every sense of the word as many people are worried and keep asking if there is ever going to be a room for the ‘negro’ in the royal family and among the whites.

The Duchess of Sussex lamented how his son, was denied the title of Prince at birth because he was mixed race. Due to this, the son of the royal couple, Achie will have no police protection. This has raised several questions why Achie, the first member of colour in the family will not be titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be.
In view of this, several conspiracy theories have claimed that this decision of Achie not having a title is in line with protocol. This is so because it was declared in George V’s era that, only children of the future monarch of the direct male line should be given titles. As such, Achie cannot be given a title because his father, Prince Harry is sixth in line to the throne and will move down the line of succession if his senior brother, Prince William decides to have more children and as George, Charlotte, and Louis (children of Prince William) have children of their own.
