But the couple had their defenders as well. During his Monday night show, Jimmy Kimmel said that the “inbred” royal family had no right to worry about the color of a baby’s skin.
Kimmel began, “Everyone thinks marrying a prince is like a fairy tale. Turns out, it’s not. Meghan Markle said that when she joined the royal family they took away her passport, driver’s license, and keys. ‘Welcome to the royal family. Please remove your belt and get ready for a cavity search.’”
The late night host continued, “Imagine after centuries of inbreeding all of a sudden these people are concerned about the color of a baby’s skin,” he cracked. And by the way, they should hope that the kid looks more like Meghan than Harry. No offense, but I mean, Harry kind of looks like the guy who played Screech—may he rest in peace.”
