- Prince Charles reportedly made the remarks that led to the split in the family, during the same day that Harry proposed to Meghan
- The first in line for the UK throne was speaking to his wife, who is said to have been positive about her grandchildren
- However, the blame is being put on those who passed the message to others - with talks of them having a racial spin
A new book has claimed that Prince Charles was one of the royals who questioned the complexion of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's then-future child.
The said talk led to the rift between the royal family and the couple, who now live in the US, and apparently was way before they got married.

It is alleged that Prince Charles mentioned to his wife Camilla that he wondered what the children would look like, and even though taken aback, she noted they would be "absolutely gorgeous".
Charles is then said to have lowered his voice and noted to Camilla that he meant what the children's complexion might be, seemingly a more specific question.
Blame on intermediaries
However, a spokesperson for Charles told New York Post that the claims were fiction and not worthy of further comments.
Andersen's report nearly hangs Charles as the one talked about by Meghan during the Oprah interview, where she noted there were people who questioned what Archie's skin tone would be.
However, the author also blames intermediaries who might have passed the information from one to another for giving it a racial spin.
He claims the question was being echoed in a less innocent way throughout the halls of Buckingham Palace.
Prince William also allegedly called the skin tone comment "tasteless" but not a sign of racism within the royal family.
Harry working on book
A few months back, media reports suggested that Prince Harry was set to drop a bombshell as far as his relations with the Royal Family go.
British media reported that the embattled Prince was set to announce major details on his family affairs.
In July, Harry announced that he would release memories regarding intimate and heartfelt recollection of his life and times.
It was reported that the book would be publicised by Penguin Random House next year. The Duke of Sussex’s book will address the differences with his family.
It is reported that the Duke has almost completed the final draft of the manuscript.
