The question about Archie’s skin color was that the Royals “were realistic”, according to Barnsey

THE unnamed royal who questioned the skin color of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie was “just realistic” and not racist, John Barnes said.

The ex-Liverpool ace, 57, made the comments after Meghan told Oprah Winfrey in an explosive interview that Archie had not been made prince after “concerns and conversations” about “at how dark his skin would be when he was born.

Barnes said in his opinion that most black people would answer a “so what” question about their baby’s skin color.

Barnes – a father of seven – told The Sunday Times Magazine: “You talk to most black people and they’ll say ‘Yeah, so what?’ I would expect this conversation to be held by the family.

“People will always wonder what the baby will look like and if it is going to be dark. If you listen to what Meghan says it’s not about them [the unnamed royal] worrying whether the baby is dark or not, they are the ones who are worried about how the audience is going to view it.

“Because they know that if the baby is too dark, the audience won’t see the baby in a positive way. They’re realistic. Let’s not pretend the audience won’t care if it’s a blond haired baby with blue eyes or jet black, because they will. “
