The highly anticipated interview came and went as expected with controversy with Meghan Markle speaking on color issues she encountered at the Castle.

Oprah says it wasn’t prince Harry’s grandmother or grandfather” that discussed Archie’s skin color. Markle revealed in the CBS special on Sunday that there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin was going to be when he was born.” Prince Harry added: “That conversation, I’m never going to share. It was awkward and I was a bit shocked.”

“He wanted to make sure that I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother, nor his grandfather that were part of those conversations,” Winfrey said. “He did not tell me who were a part of those conversations, as you can see I tried to get that answer, on camera and off.”

CBS This Morning also aired an unseen moment from the interview, in which Prince Harry says that racism was a “large part” of their reasoning for relocating to California, where they have stepped back from their royal duties and signed lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.
