Lady Colin Campbell has claimed to know the royal accused of ‘racism’ by Meghan Markle and described it as a “misunderstanding”.

The long-awaited Oprah interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aired last month with a number of shocking claims made about the Royal Family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a series of claims, accusing an unnamed royal of racism, suggesting the family were jealous of Meghan and revealing that she contemplated taking her own life while pregnant.

Meghan said, when she was pregnant with Archie, an unnamed member of the royal family raised “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born”.

Asked whether there were concerns that her child would be “too brown” and that would be a problem, Meghan said: “If that is the assumption you are making, that is a pretty safe one.”

Pushed by Winfrey on who had those conversations, Meghan refused to say, adding: “I think that would be very damaging to them.”

Harry refused to give details, adding: “That conversation, I am never going to share. At the time it was awkward, I was a bit shocked.”

The duke said that none of his relatives spoke out in support of Meghan following the racism he said she faced in the media.

“No-one from my family ever said anything over those three years. That hurts,” Harry said.

Former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! star and royal biographer Lady C has now given further details on the incident claiming she knows the royal in question.

She said: “I know who it is - I’ve known for a little while who it is.

"There were no concerns about Meghan’s colour."

She also claimed the “misunderstood” royal did not agree with Prince Harry’s marriage to former Suits star Meghan Markle.

She said: "Not because of Meghan’s colour, but because of Meghan’s inability and 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."

She added: "(The Royal Family member) did not think Harry should marry Meghan Markle and thought that everybody going along with it was making a great mistake."

When the interview first aired the Royal Family released a statement in response to claims made in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

The statement from Buckingham Palace said: "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. 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."
