As previously reported by OK!, according to a source who contributed to Christopher Andersen’s upcoming book Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan, Charles told his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, that he wondered what Meghan and Harry's children would look like after the couple announced their engagement in 2017.
The Duchess of Cornwall was said to be "somewhat taken aback" by the question but said the couple's children would be "absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain." "I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?" Charles allegedly asked.
A palace source told Sky News that the claims are "fiction and not worth further comment."
Earlier this year, the Duchess of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey that a member of the royal family had "concerns and conversations about how dark" Archie's "skin might be when he's born." Meghan and Harry did not name the royal in question but it was later reported that it was not Queen Elizabeth II or the late Prince Philip. Anderson did not claim that Meghan and Harry had been talking about Charles, Page Six reported.

After the bombshell interview aired, Prince William told the press that the royals are not "a racist family."
"The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately," Buckingham Palace said in a statement at the time. "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members."
