The shocking claims were first made when she sat down for a tell-all interview with her husband Prince Harry and talk show host Oprah Winfrey. During the chat, the couple alleged an unnamed member of the Royal Family had expressed "concerns" about "how dark" Prince Archie's skin would be when he was born. Now, author Omid Scobie has said Meghan named those involved in private letters she exchanged with King Charles.
In his new book, Endgame, the author claimed that he knows the names but said "laws in the United Kingdom prevent me from reporting who they were." PR expert Matt Yanofsky suggested Meghan could reveal the names, but she will wait for exactly the right moment.

Speaking exclusively to The Mirror, he said: "I would suspect she doesn't comment, so she can keep teasing/keep the audience of Royal news guessing. This is her golden press card to play, and she's going to hold the card till she needs to play it."
Explaining when Meghan could potentially speak out, Matt said: "If she's smart, she'll hold off on naming names until she is drying up with press coverage. Love or hate Meghan, she's very smart with press."
Endgame has come under scrutiny after the two people involved seemed to have been named in Dutch translated copies of the book. The Mirror has chosen not to publish the names of those in question.
Publishers have now put sales including the names on hold "temporarily". Xander, the publishers of the Dutch translation of Omid Scobie's Endgame, said there had been an "error". In a statement, they said: "[We are] temporarily withdrawing the book by Omid Scobie from sale. An error occurred in the Dutch translation and is currently being rectified."
In an interview about Endgame, Omid said Meghan and Harry's race claims seem to have "disappeared out of sight". Appearing on Good Morning America, Omid said the Sussexes have managed to have positive conversations with King Charles since the interview and have been able to share their concerns about the conversations.
He told the hosts: "Listen, there are many people that argued it's normal to have conversations about what a child might look like at birth. I think the problematic term that Meghan raised were that there were 'concerns' over the colour of Archie's skin and I always wondered why Harry and Meghan didn't continue that conversation in the Netflix series and Harry's book Spare.
"It's like it disappeared out of sight and I wanted to get to the bottom of that, so to discover more about these letters that had been exchanged between Meghan and Charles after that Oprah interview." Omid explained that both sides don't "see eye to eye on that to this day", but said "they're able to at least share their queries and concerns about those conversations that happened within the family".
