When Winfrey asked why Meghan thought the royal family didn't want to give Archie a title or security, she revealed that race had been a concern within the institution.
There were several "concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born," she said.
The family had had those conversations with Harry, which were then related back to her, Meghan said. She declined to reveal who was involved with those conversations.
"That would be very damaging to them," she said.
During her tours and visits to the Commonwealth, she saw "how much it meant to them to be able to see someone who looked like them in this position. And I could never understand how it couldn't be seen as an added benefit, and a reflection of the world today."
