The couple detailed racist treatment inside the palace, including son Archie being denied a title and security as well as “concerns and conversations” about his skin color. That drew a few moments of stunned silence and an exasperated “What?” from Winfrey.
“I agree: ‘What?’ and let me just add: ‘Huh?’” Colbert said. “I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that there is a possibility ― just a possibility, mind you ― that this medieval selective breeding program might be racist.”
Colbert delivered that last word with yet another GIF-worthy moment… no popcorn necessary:
Harry described the conversation about Archie’s skin color as “awkward.” Colbert offered up a better description.
“Awkward is four people in the back seat of a car,” he said. “Awkward is forgetting your friend’s child’s name. One of your relatives asking you to place your child on the Sherwin-Williams color wheel is royally fucked up.”
