Clarence House has dismissed as “fiction” claims in a new book that the Prince of Wales was the royal who speculated on the skin colour of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s future children.

Christopher Andersen alleges in his book that Charles made the comment on the day Harry and Meghan’s engagement was announced in November 2017.

In Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan, he writes the prince said to the Duchess of Cornwall: “I wonder what the children will look like?”, the New York Post’s Page Six website reported.

When Camilla replied: “Absolutely gorgeous, I’m certain,” the book claims Charles went on to say: “I mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?”

A Clarence House spokesman said: “This is fiction and not worth further comment.”

Harry and Meghan claimed during their Oprah Winfrey interview that when Meghan was pregnant with Archie, a member of the royal family raised “concerns... about how dark his skin might be”.
