The US co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement is calling for a boycott of the Royal Family after Meghan Markle’s bombshell claims in her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Opal Tometi, 36, told TMZ she believed people should stop standing by the Palace after the Duchess of Sussex alleged one member of the family raised ‘concerns’ about Archie’s potential skin color when she was pregnant.

Meghan told Oprah there were ‘concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born’.

She added: ‘That was relayed to me from Harry. Those were conversations that family had with him.’

The couple refused to name the person who allegedly made the comments but Prince Harry reportedly told Oprah off-air that they were not made by the Queen or Prince Philip.

Tometi, a prominent activist, said the allegations should make people turn their backs on the Royal Family, according to TMZ.

She said black women like Meghan should be believed when they speak out.
