The Sky News reported, a spokesperson for Prince Charles has denied he was the "royal racist" who questioned the skin tone of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future children.

A "well-placed" source claimed Prince Charles was behind the controversial comment made before Archie's birth in new book Brothers and Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan, by US journalist Christopher Andersen.

Prince Charles was sitting down for breakfast with his wife Camila the morning Harry and Meghan's engagement was officially announced on November 27, 2017.

The book alleged, Prince Charles reportedly said to his wife Camilla: "I wonder what the children will look like?"

According to the source, Camilla was "somewhat taken aback" by the question and replied, "Well, absolutely gorgeous, I'm certain".

Charles reportedly "lowered his voice" and said: "I mean, what do you think their children's complexion might be?"

A spokesperson for Prince Charles responded to the claims and told The New York Post: "This is fiction and not worth further comment".

Meghan - whose mother is black and father is white - sensationally accused someone in the Royal Family of voicing concerns about how dark baby Archie's skin colour would be before he was born.

Speaking in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, the Duchess of Sussex said there were "concerns and conversations".

She said: "In those months when I was pregnant, all around the same time, so we have in tandem the conversation that he won't be given security, he's not going to be given a title, and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."

The Duchess declined to reveal who specifically made the racist comments, saying it would be "too damaging" for them.
