Prince Harry's interview continues to be the subject of debate.

Thomas defended the royal family and said he did not think they were racist, noting that he had great respect and admiration for the royal family.

The 76-year-old said that many people in Los Angeles, California and added that the question asked over Prince Archie's color was not as severe as his daughter made it look.

Thomas added that the question might have been dumb, but it does not make the royal family racist. The 76-year-old's defense of the royal family comes after years of a poor relationship with his daughter.

Thomas and Meghan have had a poor relationship and have not been on speaking terms. The 76-year-old was absent from his daughter's wedding following the fallout from a photo scandal.

While Meghan and her husband Prince Harry have relied on silence when dealing with the press, Thomas has kept his gates wide open to the media and never relents in bashing his daughter publicly.

The mother of one believes that the tabloids are using her dad to cause a rift between them. Meghan revealed that the media seduced her father into dishing out family information to them.

Shortly after Sunday's heavyweight interview aired, show host Oprah Winfrey during a Monday appearance on "CBS This Morning," clarified that neither Queen Elizabeth II nor Prince Phillip commented about Archie's skin color.

Prince Harry's interview continues to be the subject of debate amongst fans of the royal family, and it doesn't seem to be ending any time soon.
