It's equally possible that people see the same things you do, and come to different conclusions than you based their interpretation of the data.The UK press was incredibly unfair and, in my opinion, blatantly racist towards the young lady. And one thing we are consistently reminded of me that a lot of people are told what their opinion should be, and then spout whatever that is as if it truly is their own opinion. Piers Morgan is a good example -- he will say whatever nonsense he does, and a certain segment of society will believe that & run with it, regardless of it's factuality.
Things must've been pretty unpleasant for them to even have to talk about the skin tone of their baby - that shouldn't be a conversation people should even have to have, especially in modern times - and leave a life of guaranteed wealth & protection.
As to skin tone, the context of the conversation matters. Was it a casual questioning of what the baby's complexion would be, just like other people wonder about eye colour, hair colour, etc., or was it actually a racist "I hope the child looks white"? To my knowledge the context of the comment wasn't given, which means based on our own perceptions of the people involved we draw conclusions... If you dislike the royals then it was obviously intentionally racist, but if you question the motivations of people who say they want to live a private life, yet do an Oprah interview, it casts some doubt on the situation.
Could it have been genuinely racist as alluded to? Absolutely yes. Could it have been an innocent question born of genuine curiosity? Absolutely yes.
