Prince Charles wanted to issue ‘point by point’ reply to Meghan’s TV tell-all

Prince Charles wanted to issue a "point by point" response to Harry and Meghan's bombshell claims in their Opray Winfrey TV tell-all, a royal expert has claimed.

Katie Nicholl said both the Prince of Wales and Prince William were "keen to correct some" of the allegations made against the Royal Family by the Sussexes.

The couple claimed an unnamed royal expressed concerns over their son Archie's skin colour being too dark, Kate Middleton left Meghan in tears before her wedding and that Charles cut the pair off financially when they quit as senior royals last March.

Ms Nicholl told ET : "My understanding is that Prince Charles did want to issue a more detailed statement [in response] to the Oprah interview and possibly address some of those issues point by point.

"But there was an evening to think about things and in the end, it was decided that a shorter statement would be better, [and] that going at things point by point could be potentially more damaging and give more ammunition for the row to continue.

"I think Prince Charles and Prince William were keen to correct some of the things that the couple had said."

She added: "Prince Charles was particularly frustrated by the suggestion that financially he just cut the couple off, when if you speak to sources in Charles' camp, that wasn't the case.

"He did continue funding them for quite some time after they moved first to Canada and then to America.

"So yes, I think there was at one point the feeling that they did want to address more than just the issue of race."
