The Kingdom’s Choir, who performed at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018, have defended Prince Charles after the former royal couple’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Karen Gibson, who is the founder and conductor of the gospel choir, said that the Prince of Wales was the one who invited them to the big day and has gone "out of his way" to congratulate them on their successes ever since.

During Meghan and Harry's two-hour interview, the Duchess of Sussex claimed that there was "conversations" had about what color skin her son, Archie, would have when he was born. 

Additionally, Meghan claimed that she was told Archie was not going to be given the title of "prince" while she was expecting and by extension, "he wasn’t going to receive security."

"The idea of our son not being safe and the idea of the first member of color in this family not being titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be…" Meghan said. "It’s not their right to take it away, and so I think even with that convention, they want to change the convention for Archie. Well, why?"

While Meghan and Harry did not name who had "concerns" about Archie’s skin color, Harry "wanted to make sure that I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother [Queen Elizabeth II] or his grandfather [Prince Philip] that were part of those conversations," Oprah told Gayle King

The Kingdom’s Choir’s defense of Prince Charles comes after Prince William told the press that the royals "are very much not a racist family." The Duke of Cambridge added that he had not spoken to his brother since the interview but would. 

Harry also alleged that a "lack of support" was one of the reasons why he and Meghan stepped down as senior royals last year and said that his father and brother are "trapped" in the royal family. 

According to Harry, Prince Charles has allegedly stopped taking his phone calls and cut him off financially but they had money that was left to Harry from his late mother, Princess Diana
