Piers Morgan, 56, has responded to Jeremy Clarkson, 61, after he claimed Meghan Markle’s decision to not name the royal member who commented on her son Archie’s skin colour because it was “too damaging” may be false. The motor expert instead alleged that a source had informed him it was “not actually a member of the Royal Family” who had made the remark referenced by the Duchess Of Sussex, 40, during her interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March.
Jeremy typed: “It was claimed this week that Harry and Meghan Markle chose not to name the ‘royal racist’ who wondered out loud what their baby would look like, because it would be too damaging.
“Hmmm. If my sources are correct, the real reason they didn’t name the person might have something to do with the fact that they are not actually a member of the Royal Family,” he added in his The Sun column.
In response to Jeremy’s allegations, Piers added his opinion in view of his 7.9 million followers.
He wrote: “Fascinating snippet from @JeremyClarkson today.
“I suggest the Sussexes clarify who exactly said the supposedly racist comment ASAP. “
In a landmark interview with Oprah earlier this year, both Meghan and her husband Prince Harry, 36, revealed their discontent at a number of issues within the palace.
The Duchess of Sussex described the Queen as being “really welcoming” in one part, however, she also discussed how she felt upset after her son Archie Harrison Mountbatten was not made a Prince.
Meghan claimed that there were multiple conversations and concerns about “how dark” her son’s skin colour would be.
The statement left Oprah looking visibly shocked during their discussion.
The host asked who made such a statement, however, Meghan would not reveal who it was, saying it would be “very damaging” to their reputation.
But she replied by saying there were “several conversations” surrounding her child’s complexion.
Meghan shared: “In those months, when I was pregnant, all around this same time, we had in tandem the conversation of he won’t be given security, he won’t be given a title.
“And also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin will be when he’s born.
“That was relayed to me from Harry, that was from conversations that family had with him. It was really hard to see those as compartmentalised conversations,” she added.
Meanwhile, Jeremy and Piers had long been enemies before they decided to bury the hatchet last year when they recorded a special Christmas episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? together.
The former Good Morning Britain host revealed his former nemesis sent him a touching message of support as he was told to “apologise” or quit his role on ITV, after he publicly stated he disbelieved Meghan’s claims during her Oprah interview.
