PIERS Morgan has reportedly left the royal family considering legal action against Omid Scobie by naming the two senior royals, King Charles and Princess Catherine, at the centre of the new Prince Archie race storm as a royal insider hits back at Harry and Meghan over the baby race claims.
The outspoken TV host, 58, decided to use his TalkTV show on Wednesday night to name the two royals who writer Omid Scobie, 41, claimed had “concerns” over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son’s skin colour in the Dutch version of his new book on the couple, titled ‘Endgame’.
A royal insider hit back at the author exclusively telling Politicalite: “Of course it was only natural for family members to ask when a white person and mixed race person have a baby, what color would his skin be?”
Harry said to Oprah, “That conversation I am never going to share, but at the time, it was awkward,” he said. “I was a bit shocked.”
It’s good to recollect that Harry said to Oprah about the royals questioning posssibly out of curiosity about the baby’s color that he will never reveal the names of the royals who asked, so no aide knows. Then for Scobie to have that information in his new book, Harry or Meghan had to have told him or his second.
Asking about the baby’s color isn’t about race at all. That leaves the question are Harry and Meghan so unsophisticated that they don’t know that or are they deliberately targeting senior members of the royal family to create a false narrative and take the question out of context? It appears to be the latter. Moaning for money.”
A source added that the monarchy also considers Omid’s book a “rant against the royal family”.
The Mail added the source told them the Royal Family is understood to be “considering all options” including legal action.
Other insiders told the Daily Mirror there is “utter dismay” at Buckingham Palace after the names quickly went viral on social media after Piers’ broadcast.
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, 42, first made the claim in her and her 39-year-old husband Prince Harry’s infamous 2021 sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, 69, that there had allegedly been “several conversations” between herself, Harry and members of the royal family about “how dark” Archie’s skin would be.
The couple chose not to reveal the name, but Piers went ahead on his TV show and posted two names on his social media.
He made the move after it emerged on Tuesday Dutch translation of Omid’s book containing the names had gone on sale in the Netherlands.
Its publisher withdrew and pulped the copies.
Piers said his decision would let people in Britain have a “more open debate about this whole farrago”.
He added: “Because I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family, and until there is actual evidence of those comments being made, I will never believe it.”
Piers added before naming the royals: “But now we can start the process of finding out if they ever got uttered, what the context was, and whether there was any racial intent at all – like I say, I don’t believe there was.”
