"Sounds to me like his grandmother believes him."

It doesn't. It's simply an anodyne response from the Palace basically saying it's their business and they'll sort it privately if necessary. The 'different recollections' phrase suggest they have doubts about the assertions. That's as far as they can go without using the Piers Morgan word.

I believe that HARRY would also be VERY MIFFED that HM is doing all she can to keep Andrew out of the Limelight and he retains as far as I know all his Military titles something Harry does not and yet Andrew is evading questioning by the FBI , Harry on the other hand has done nothing wrong in any sense of the Word

THANK YOU!!

I'm relieved to see some compassion amongst the hatred.

Of course, but that wasn't presented as evidence, was it?

Actually it was.  Her exact phrasing was "There were concerns as to how dark his skin would be".

We're not racist!  Look, we've got a black person right here!

Allegedly, but she didn't witness that herself.

The conversation has also been presented as "one unnamed member of the family had asked how dark their son Archie's skin might be."

That's a perfectly normal thing to ask and not in the least racist.

"Harry, said one unnamed member of the family had asked how dark their son Archie's skin might be."

Are you trying to suggest that's racist?  It seems a perfectly normal question to ask.

Biden dispenses serotonin the way Barack Obama dispensed drone strikes
... It feels cruel to return unaccompanied minors, as the Trump administration did, and to hold them in prison-like conditions, as both the Obama and Trump administrations did. But the fact is, Biden’s policies have fostered a greater cruelty.

Biden has created new incentives for human trafficking and the worse kinds of child exploitation. The result is a surge in border crossings that even a professional euphemist like secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas calls ‘overwhelming’, and the spectacle of would-be illegal immigrants kneeling at the border while wearing t-shirts reading ‘Biden let us in’.

This is what Biden gets for taking a knee as a craven genuflection to BLM. This is what he gets for accusing Donald Trump of being a racist and sadist for caging unaccompanied minors — even though Biden was vice president when the cages were built, and even though Biden now presides over a greater influx. And this is what we get: a theater of the sentiments, in which the actors and audience are so jaded that their senses and check books can only be stimulated by that reliable and obscene soap-opera trick, putting children’s lives in the balance.

Asked if the word ‘crisis’ applied, the President’s spokeswoman, Jennifer Psaki, refuses to call it anything at all — because she would feel bad, and we would feel bad, and Biden would look bad, if we called it for what it is. It is easier for the administration to resent the Mexican children for putting us in this moral bind, and resent the Republicans, who aren’t short of their own resentments when it comes to immigration, for making hay with it.

The fact is that this is a crisis. It reflects the corrupt failure of Washington DC and the cold self-interest of corporations who want cheap labor, unions who don’t want it, and, in the middle, the upper-middle-class donors who dislike foreigners who don’t speak English, but need them to bus their tables, do their lawns and wipe their children’s backsides.

Given the complexities of the facts and the appeal of a flight into sentiment, it’s no wonder that this week the administration and media did direct us to pity the children. Meghan and Harry, that is.

But Harry did, and backed her up.

“That conversation, I’m never going to share,” Harry said during the interview. “But at the time, it was awkward. I was a bit shocked.”
