It’s been more than two years since the infamous Oprah Winfrey sit-down with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in which the couple shared that a royal family member made comments about the skin color of the couple’s future son, Archie. Markle shared during the interview that there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

Despite attempts by the rest of the royal family to prove that they weren’t racist, speculation abounded about who might have made those comments. For many, it wasn’t hard to believe that a family with deep ties to colonialism might also be harboring some racists.

“The royals who were named in this book are King Charles and Catherine, Princess of Wales,” said Morgan on his show. “I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family, and until there is actual evidence of those comments being made, I will never believe it.”

So, far both Harry and Markle are staying radio-silent. However, Morgan has continued to defend the royals, despite being the one to out them. “What racism? Where’s the racism,” shouted Morgan at a Black guest on his show.

The host then proceeded to complain about the Oprah interview. “How could you pour more hatred over people than these two who for four years have poured hatred on their family and the monarchy and did it by sparking a racism row on Oprah Winfrey in front of 50 million people where they made allegations of racism and tried to pretend they hadn’t. They’ve never produced any evidence.”

Clearly he’s not over the Oprah interview or his obsession with Markle.
