“People are literally reeling from what has happened and some staff would dearly love to publicly rebut some of what has been said about them.

“But the Queen has taken a very measured, sensible approach. She is leading by example. This is a matter for her and the family to deal with.”

Ent Daily has contacted reps for Buckingham Palace for comment.

The interview, which aired on Monday night in the UK, saw Meghan and Harry speak about the last few years as working royals.

One of the bombshell claims came from the Duchess of Sussex when she alleged there were ‘concerns and conversations’ about how dark Archie’s skin colour might be when he was born within the royal family.

What happened during the interview?

Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry refused to identify the person who allegedly made the comment.

Oprah later confirmed Harry told her it wasn’t the Queen nor the Duke of Edinburgh, 99.

During the chat, Meghan also said she felt suicidal during her pregnancy with son Archie.

However, she claimed she asked someone at the Palace for help and she was told it “wouldn’t be good for The Institution”.
