Explosive allegations were made by Meghan and Prince Harry during their interview with Oprah, with the Duchess of Sussex claiming there had been "concerns and conversations" over her then unborn son.

She claimed in the tell-all chat that a conversation had been had with Prince Harry and a "family" member about "how dark" their unborn son's skin would be.

But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.

Prince Harry also said he would "never share" the full details of the discussion.

However, he claimed he had been asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan how dark the skin colour of their children might be.

Oprah Winfrey later revealed it was not the Queen or Prince Philip who made the comment.

Now, Lady C, who has appeared on a string of reality TV shows and is famed for her eccentricity, has claimed she knows who has been accused of making the comment.

Making the unconfirmed comments in a YouTube video, the controversial royal commentator said: “I know who it is – I’ve known for a little while who it is.”

She later insisted the race row, which has plunged the Royal Family into crisis, was taken out of context, claiming: "There were no concerns about Meghan’s colour."

Citing a member of the Royal circle, she said the person had been "rightly concerned".

She claimed: "Not because of Meghan’s colour, but because of Meghan’s inability and determination to remain unable to appreciate the cultural differences and to actually have respect for the institution in to which she was marrying, and the family in which she was marrying."

In the lengthy clip, shared with her 76,000 subscribers, Lady C claimed the objections over Meghan had been on the ground of "character" and "personality".

She added: "(The Royal Family member) did not think Harry should marry Meghan Markle and thought that everybody going along with it was making a great mistake."

Clarifying what she meant by "the wrong sort of American" Lady C went on to explain that Meghan is a "cool Californian babe" who believes "all of life's problems can be solved with a trip to the beach and avocado".

The Royal Family has not commented on who the Royal Family member Meghan and Harry were referring to in their Oprah chat – but have said they are dealing with the matter "privately".

In a statement from the palace issued on behalf of the Queen after the Oprah interview, the Queen said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. 

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.  Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. 

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."

The Sun Online has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.
