LONDON (Reuters) – Meghan’s father Thomas Markle said Tuesday he did not consider the British royal family to be racist and hoped an alleged comment from a family member about the darkness of Meghan’s son’s skin was just a “stupid question”. .
Meghan said her son Archie, now a year old, has been denied the title of prince because of concerns within the royal family about “how dark his skin might be when he is born”.
“I have a lot of respect for the royals and I don’t think the British royal family is racist. I don’t think the British are racist. I think Los Angeles is racist, California is racist, but I don’t think so.” I don’t think the British are, “said Markle ITV (LON :).
“The thing about what color the baby will be or how dark the baby will be; I suspect and hope it’s just a stupid question from someone … It could be someone who asked a stupid question. Instead of a total one To be a racist. “”
“This whole thing about color and how dark the baby is is bullshit,” said Markle. He thought the comment should be investigated.
Markle and his daughter have become estranged since marrying Prince Harry in 2018. Markle, a former lighting director for US TV soaps and sitcoms, previously retired from the wedding days after having heart surgery.
He said his daughter abandoned him while he was sick.
“I also feel like she let me down,” said Markle. “The last time we talked was I was in a hospital bed and I never heard from them again – they didn’t care if I died.”
When asked about the interview Meghan and Harry gave Oprah Winfrey, Markle said, “They exaggerated everything” and should have waited considering Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, was in the hospital.
“You should have waited considering the age of the queen and the age of Philip,” he said.
