The speculation continues...

The Harry and Meghan interview has made headlines around the world after the duchess accused a member of the royal family of asking “how dark Archie’s skin colour would be”.

Chat show queen Oprah has subsequently revealed that the unnamed royals at the centre of the storm are neither the Queen nor Prince Philip.
