The Queen considers appointing a 'diversity chief' following Megxit interview

The Queen is considering appointing a 'diversity chief' to modernise the monarchy following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah. 

A royal source told Daily Mail the Palace is committed to diversity and the rights of minorities but admits the move means "more needs to be done."

During the explosive interview with Oprah, Meghan, 39, said while she was pregnant with Archie there were "concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born". 

The allegation of racism drawing an official response from the Royal Family; "The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately"

According to the Daily Mail, Royal sources say the "policies, procedures and programmes" aimed at championing diversity were already in place prior to the interview, but the Palace hasn't seen the progress they would like. 

Plans from Buckingham Palace show the Palace will be informed by "independent views"  to boost the knowledge surrounding diversity. 

The independent views will include those from ethnic minorities, the disabled, and the LQBTQ+ community. 

Over the coming weeks Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace will all take part in a "listen and learn" exercise where individuals and businesses will suggest ways royal practices can diversify and improve, the Daily Mail reported. 

Prince Harry confirmed Meghan's claims of a member of the Royal Family having concerns over Archie's skin colour later on in the interview but did not want to share details.

"That conversation, I'm never going to share. But at the time, it was awkward. I was a bit shocked," he said. "That was right at the beginning... 'What will the kids look like?'"

Prince William has denied allegations made by Meghan and Prince Harry, telling a reporter earlier this month the Royals were "very much not a racist family." 

A statement released by the Buckingham Palace following the interview said; "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members."
