The interviews come before his autobiography Spare is released on January 10 which will see him discuss his childhood, his military career, and his strained relationship with the Royal Family. The royal has received backlash on a number of comments which he made in both interviews.

In the ITV interview, Harry backtracked on a major bombshell both he and Meghan dropped about the royals in their Oprah Winfrey interview.

When questioned by ITV’s Tom Bradby about the comments made by a royal about the colour of Archie’s skin, Harry accused the British press of saying that he and his wife called the royals racist.

The 38-year-old claimed: “No I didn’t…The British press said that…did Meghan ever mention that they’re racist?”

Harry confirmed that both he and Meghan raised the issue of concerning comments about his son’s skin colour but told Mr Bradby that “I wouldn’t [describe that as racist], not having lived within that family”.

Instead, the Prince explained his view that his family and the institution have an unconscious bias which is not racism by explained this can turn into racism if it is left unchecked.

The Duke of Sussex has been accused of misunderstanding racism and unconscious bias by author and activist Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.

Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu tweeted: “Prince Harry you’re WRONG. There’s ZERO difference between racist conscious/unconscious bias and racism.

“Bias is presence of racism, and the actions/works are proof therein.

“You’re RIGHT that once pointed out it’s the person’s responsibility to rectify/grow from it.”

The Duke received further criticism online following further conflicting information around his accusations of racism within the Firm.

Speaking on ITV to Tom Bradby, Harry said: “We always wanted to continue to serve…if my father asks us for support across the commonwealth then that is certainly an open discussion.”

The comment has been slammed online following a section in Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries which attacked the Commonwealth as ‘Empire 2.0’.

Similarly, just hours after his interview aired in the UK, the CBS interview saw Harry reiterate that his family judged Meghan on her heritage.

Mr Cooper’s voiceover said: “When he introduced Meghan Markle to his Family in 2016, his father initially took a liking to her, but William was sceptical…Though Harry doesn’t specify who, he says other members of the royal family were uneasy as well.”

Harry said in the interview that the bias against Meghan from his family started “right from the beginning before they even had a chance to get to know her”.

He clarified that the bias was based on “the fact that she was America, an actress, divorced, Black, biracial with a Black mother”.

Harry added: “Those were just four of the typical stereotypes.”

TikToker @primalempress shared both clips from the interviews.

She said: “Technically they never said there was racism within the Royal Family but it was heavily implied.”

However, when Harry went on Anderson Cooper, he once again implied that there is racism within the Royal Family.

She claimed that the British and American public “are being played…for financial gain and relevance”.
