But one part in particular stood out for many, as Meghan said that one member of the royal family told Harry they had "concerns" about how dark son Archie's skin would be when he was born.

Both Meghan and Harry refused to reveal who raised these concerns, but Oprah later revealed that it was neither the Queen nor Prince Philip.

She told CBS: "He did not share the identity with me, but he wanted to make sure that I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother nor his grandfather."

Buckingham Palace later released a statement on behalf of the Queen, saying that the issues raised were "concerning" and would be addressed privately.

"The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan," the statement read. "The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."

The statement ended: "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."

Now, Prince William has responded to questions about the interview, denying that the royal family is racist and revealing he has yet to speak to Prince Harry.

In response to being directly asked if the royal family were racist, William simply said: "We're very much not a racist family."
