Lady Colin Campbell, 71, appeared on the show on Good Friday, after dropping bombshell allegations that Princess Anne was the senior royal who made comments about Archie’s skin colour.
Meghan accused the Royal Family of having ‘concerns’ about ‘how dark’ Archie’s skin would be before he was born because she is mixed-race and Harry is white in explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
But Lady Campbell, a Jamaican-born British socialite, said Princess Anne ‘wasn’t alluding to the colour of this child’ but rather Meghan’s character – and how she allegedly uses race in all contexts.
‘Meghan weaponises colour with everything,’ Lady Campbell said.
‘You see, as long as she plays the colour card, she gets a free pass to behave as badly and as freely as she would like.
‘She has no boundaries and as long as she plays the colour card, it is open season.’

Lady Campbell alleged that Princess Anne was actually alluding to Meghan being ‘unsuitable’ because of her personality – rather than Archie’s skin colour.
‘She highlighted that Meghan was not going to have the right cultural attitude, and that the cultural differences would impact adversely upon Meghan’s performance should she marry Harry, and should they have children,’ Lady Campbell said.
Meghan and Harry’s interview on CBS sent shock waves around the world in March as the couple laid bare the extent of their rift with the Queen and other senior royals.
They accused an unnamed Royal Family member of racism, suggesting the relative had asked ‘how dark’ their baby would be; said they had been driven out of Britain, in part, by racism; and accused the Palace machinery of failing to support a ‘suicidal’ Meghan.
Harry revealed an astonishing rift with his father, saying his family had cut him off financially while suggesting the Queen had been badly advised and had cancelled a meeting scheduled at Sandringham.
Meghan also accused her sister-in-law Kate of making her cry; suggested senior royals plotted to ensure Archie would never have a title or adequate security; and said officials had failed to stand up for the couple against ‘racist’ commentary, while lying to protect other royals.

Her Majesty said the alleged racist comment made about what colour the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby Archie would be was ‘concerning’ and would be ‘addressed by the family privately’.
The monarch reportedly spoke to senior royals – including Charles, Camilla, William and Kate – behind closed doors over the couple’s allegations.
The Queen said: ‘The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
‘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. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.’
Lady Campbell had earlier claimed that Princess Anne was the royal Meghan – but insisted the Queen’s daughter was completely misunderstood by the Sussexes.
She said: ‘Harry decided that on the slimmest of hints about culture – that it referred to colour.
‘She [Anne] had concerns about the disastrous effects of allowing somebody of that ilk, character wise, into the family, would not only cause trouble for all of them but also for any child born of the union’.
She added: ‘Harry ran to Meghan with the objections, Meghan weaponised them on the grounds of colour. We are looking at people who are very eager to spot a slight where doubtless none exist’.
But Lady Colin has told her own podcast, ‘Chatting with Lady C’, that they were pointing the finger at Princess Anne, unfairly, and it was a misunderstanding in a discussion about the cultural differences between Brits and American.
