Lady Colin Campbell claimed Princess Anne was the royal member Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were referring to when the couple claimed a certain someone discussed the color of son Archie's skin during their shocking tell-all with Oprah Winfrey that aired earlier this month.
However, Campbell emphasized that the alleged incident was just a big misunderstanding in a new YouTube video called: "Lady C REVEALS the Royal Meghan and Harry wouldn’t name + why Prince Albert intervened," which was released on Tuesday, March 30.
As OK! previously reported, Meghan said there were concerns and conversations within the royal circle about Archie's skin during her and Harry's sit-down chat with Oprah on Sunday, March 7. At the time, Harry refused to reveal who took part in the race talks. However, it was later confirmed that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not involved.
In her YouTube clip, Campbell — who married and then divorced Lord Colin Ivar Campbell — said she chose to reveal the royal member's identity before an "anti-monarchist" or "anti-establishment" publication had a chance to expose the royal and put a "negative spin" on the incident.
Before explaining the nature behind the alleged race conversation, Campbell clarified that the person said: "nothing about Meghan's complexion, nothing about the color of her skin, nothing about her race, nothing about the color of the baby's skin and future baby."
In fact, the alleged conversation in question was just a "member of the family" sharing their concern regarding Meghan's cultural ignorance prior to her and Prince Harry's 2018 wedding, Campbell said.
She then slammed Meghan for "lying" during the couple's bombshell interview and threw shade at Harry for being foolish enough to believe his wife's lies surrounding the incident.
Campbell said the brunette beauty "managed to convince" the red-headed prince "that any criticism of her is based upon race," adding that the prince is "so dumb that he's actually swallowed that lie."
The 71-year-old claimed that Anne "objected" Meghan and Harry's relationship from the start and saw a slew of problems that were bound to arise in the near future if the duo wed. According to Campbell, Anne felt the Suits alum was a "fragrant operator," adding that she "thought there was something bizarre about Meghan."
In addition, Anne apparently "objected to the fact that Meghan was superficial and so culturally ignorant," Campbell said, alleging that Anne made it "very clear" to Harry that she didn't think he should marry Meghan. "[Anne] thought that everyone going along with" the couple's romance "was making a great mistake because [Meghan] was going to turn out [to be] nothing but trouble."
The princess was "rightly concerned that if the marriage proceeded, and there were children, there would be huge problems," Campbell continued to claim.
However, the problems supposedly had nothing to do with "Meghan's color," but rather her inability to accept and respect the royal institution. The problem was Meghan's "determination to remain unable to appreciate the cultural differences and to actually have respect for the institution in to which she was marrying, and the family in which she was marrying," according to Campbell.
After Harry and Meghan shared the shocking revelation of the race talks, Buckingham Palace released a statement on behalf of the Queen on Tuesday, March 9, which read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Meghan and Harry. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
