““[They had] concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born… and what that would mean or look like,” Meghan said.
Over the course of Monday’s GMB, Piers repeatedly cast doubt on these claims, and accused the Duchess of “trying to portray the Royal Family as a bunch of racists” and “making out the entire family are a bunch of white supremacists”.
Fortunately, Trisha was on hand to point something important out about Piers’ comments.
During a video-link interview, Piers said: “We don’t know who [that] conversation was with, or the context. But what you’re saying is that any context in which that kind of conversation happened is automatically racist?”
Trisha responded: “What gets me is why is everybody else such an expert about racism against Black people?
“I’m sorry, Piers, you don’t get to call out what is and isn’t racism against Black people.”
She continued: “You can call out all the other stuff, I’ll leave you to call out all the other stuff you want. But leave the racism stuff to us, eh?”
.@TrishaGoddard says @piersmorgan can call out whatever he wants but he doesn’t get to say what ‘is and isn’t racism against black people.’
He responds he’s calling out Meghan’s ‘incendiary charge of racism against the Royal Family’.
“I think when Meghan Markle calls the Royal Family a racist institution, that’s a very serious allegation,” Piers hit back, to which Susanna pointed out: “She doesn’t use the phrase ‘racist institution’.”
“She doesn’t say that,” Trisha agreed.
Piers then insisted: “They do. They portray the Royal Family as racist. And it’s a very incendiary charge. And I don’t think it’s fair to the Royal Family to not name the supposed racist.”
Referring to the Queen, Dr Shola questioned: “What kind of grandmother would be so close to Harry, but then not use her power and influence to protect them from the racist media coverage?
“What kind of grandmother would protect her own son, Prince Andrew, from the potential crime of raping a minor, but would do jack all to protect Harry and Meghan – especially, I have no doubt, that she’d have heard about the suicidal thoughts and the help and support [Meghan] needed.
