  • The Prince of Wales wants to make sure that the COVID-19 vaccines reach all the communities
  • Prince Charles shared photos of him with Black health workers from his Jesus House visit amid the racism allegation

Prince Charles appeared unaffected by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's racism allegation and even posed with Black health workers in his recent engagement.

Many were shocked when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that a member of the royal family asked how dark their child's skin color would be when Markle was still pregnant with Archie. However, the Prince of Wales didn't let it affect his schedule as he pursued his royal duties.

Prince Charles visited a COVID vaccination center in London Tuesday. The heir apparent who contracted and survived the virus said the vaccine program is "truly an answer to prayer" and laughed while sharing he learned the "wonderful acronym PUSH" which means "pray until something happens" during his last visit, The Telegraph reported.

Prince Charles also had a brief chat with Nadhim Zahawi, the vaccine minister, who said the royal took a "big interest in making sure the vaccines reach all communities."

The Prince of Wales did not acknowledge the crisis engulfing the royal family following Prince Harry and Markle's explosive allegation during their interview with Oprah. When asked about it, Prince Charles managed to give a nervous chuckle and just carried on walking.

However, Prince Charles seemingly addressed the racism allegation by sharing photos of his visit to Jesus House on Instagram where he was photographed with health workers and all of them were Black.

"Continuing Their Royal Highnesses’ work to encourage vaccine take-up, The Prince of Wales today visited @jesushouseuk in London, where a new NHS vaccine pop-up clinic has been put into action," the caption read. "The Prince previously visited Jesus House, together with The Duchess of Cornwall, in 2007 to celebrate the community work of Black Majority Churches."

Prince Harry spoke about his relationship with Prince Charles in his interview with Oprah. The Duke of Sussex admitted that his father stopped picking up his calls after he decided to step down from his royal duties. However, they are already on speaking terms and he is determined to work on their relationship.

Meanwhile, royal expert Katie Nicholl said the royals took the racism allegation "very seriously." She noted that the palace has no choice but to address the accusation.
