King Charles divulges how he’s doing after bombshell book’s ‘racism’ claims

King Charles III is unbothered.

The British monarch appeared to be in high spirits after he was named as one of the two family members who allegedly questioned the skin color of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son, Archie.

Charles landed in Dubai Thursday ahead of his keynote speech at the COP28 Climate Change Conference and was greeted by Nigerian President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“I’m all right very much, just about,” the royal said when Tinubu asked how he was.

“Having had a rather ancient birthday recently recovering from the shock of that,” he quipped, referencing his recent 75th birthday.

Earlier this week, Dutch copies of Omid Scobie’s new book about the state of the monarchy following Queen Elizabeth II’s death last September accidentally revealed the identity of two allegedly racist royals.

Although the royal reporter-turned-author insisted that all editions of “Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival” did not disclose anyone’s names, the Dutch translation claimed that Charles and Kate Middleton made comments about Archie before the young prince was born in May 2019.

Reporters who obtained copies of the since-recalled book initially redacted the two names in their coverage, however controversial media personality Piers Morgan chose to disclose their identities Wednesday night.

“Frankly, if Dutch people wandering into a bookshop can pick it up and see these names, then you — the British people here, who actually pay for the British royal family — you’re entitled to know, too,” he said on “Piers Morgan Uncensored.”

The royal family has not responded to the allegations — or any claims made in Scobie’s book — and the author blamed a translation error made by the publisher in the Netherlands for the snafu.

The race row began when Markle, who is biracial, claimed a senior member of the royal family had expressed “concerns” about her future son’s skin color during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

“[They asked about] how dark your baby is going to be?” Winfrey asked, prompting the “Suits” alum, 42, to respond, “Potentially, and what that would mean or look like.”

Harry, 39, who later described the interaction as “awkward,” suggested that his family had shown “unconscious bias” rather than racism.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been estranged from his brother, Prince William, and his wife since stepping back from their royal duties in January 2020.

Harry and Markle now reside in Montecito, Calif., with their two children: 4-year-old Archie and 2-year-old Lilibet.
