Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stunned the world when they claimed that some royal family members held conversations about Archie's skin color, leading to people pointing fingers at Prince Charles and Prince William.

While some persons agreed with Prince Harry and Markle's claim, some others have come to the royal family's defense, especially his father, Prince Charles.

The black choir leader who sang at the Duke and Duchess's wedding has lent her voice to the ongoing debate and sided with Prince Charles, insisting that he is not a racist.

In a recent interview, Karen Gibson, founder, and conductor of the Kingdom's Choir, revealed that Prince Charles was very sincere when he invited them to perform at the wedding and congratulated them.

The group received widespread commendations for their impressive performance of soul classic "Stand By Me" at the May 2018 royal wedding at Windsor Castle.

While Harry vindicated his grandmother, the queen, and his ill grandfather Prince Phillip by explaining that they had nothing to do with Archie's skin color conversation, the floor was left open for Prince Charles as a suspect.

Prince Harry's interview with Oprah will undoubtedly leave more cracks in his relationship with his brother William.

Gibson said that the Prince did not strike her as a racist, and it was hard to imagine him say such a thing. She further noted that the Prince of Wales wanted Markle to feel among and ensured their wedding was all-inclusive.

Prince William, on his part, strongly denied such claims and insisted that the royal family was not racist. During a visit to a school in east London, the Prince strongly denied the claim that the royal family had racial undertones.

The Prince also admitted that he had not spoken to his brother Harry about the interview days after it aired and caused unwanted storms for the royal family.

His defense of the family was said to have been well received by insiders of the royal family who praised his efforts to help rebuild the declining image of the centuries-long royal family.

During his interview, some of Harry's claims came as a bitter pill to his family, sources revealed. The father of one reportedly said that he felt let down by his father and that his brother Prince William is trapped in royal life.

Prince Harry's interview with Oprah will undoubtedly leave more cracks in his relationship with his brother, William.

However, both parties are ready to set aside their differences and come together as a united pair during an unveiling of their mother's statute later this year.
