PALACE experts have confirmed there is ‘no way of knowing’ which senior member of the Royal family was openly concerned about how dark Archie’s skin would be.
The sensational claim, made by Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview, has the public guessing which Royal could possibly have said something spontaneously and bluntly racist.
Former equerry Julian Cook said: “We’re looking for a senior Royal who has a history of making insensitive remarks. Someone older, perhaps, whose attitudes are not quite in step with modern times.
“It would have to be someone with a habit of saying what’s on their mind, no matter how shocking to others. It could well be someone so senior in the family that no-one’s ever dared tell them they’re being offensive.
“Anyone who would present Meghan with a Farrow & Ball paint chart and bark ‘Go on, pick the little bugger out’ would be completely out of touch, unashamed of it and confident he would never, ever face consequences.
“But I’m as baffled as you are as to his true identity. We may never know.”
A Buckingham Palace spokesman refused to answer speculation on who the mystery Royal could be, and added that it was disrespectful as he was currently hospitalised after a heart operation.
