King Charles: I Didn’t Know Meghan Markle Was Black Until Someone Told Me!

The United Kingdom has become significantly more diverse during the last 73 years.

But not surprisingly, it seems that King Charles III has spent most of his life in a lily-white bubble, away from the rapidly changing population over which he will one day rule.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Charles has lived an unfathomably sheltered life, but apparently, the new monarch is more out of touch than before.

Case in point, the dude apparently didn’t know Meghan Markle was biracial until someone told her.

Now, it’s possible that Charles has encountered so few people of color that he simply assumes that everyone he meets is WASP-y.

Anyway, the Queen was clearly more enlightened on racial matters than anyone expected – but the same could not be said of the men in her family.

“The same could not be said for Charles, though his gaffes were rare – like the time he told a writer of Guyanese descent that he didn’t ‘look’ like he was born in the British city of Manchester, perhaps Because she was black and wore dreadlocks.”
