Prince William has publicly reacted to the allegation of royal racism made by his brother Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle.
The royal couple last night had an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS where they both opened up on the ill-treatment they received from the royal family, the treatment their son Archie received from the royal household especially because of his skin colour.
The Duke of Cambridge during his first royal engagement since the Oprah interview, became the first royal to personally respond to the allegation.
William was visiting School2 in east London today, March 11, to promote a children’s mental health programme, when he was asked by Sky News reporter Inzamam Rashid, “Is the Royal Family a racist family?”
“We’re very much not a racist family,” Prince William replied.
He also revealed that he has not spoken to his brother yet since the interview aired.
Prince William said: “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet but I will do.”
The Cambridges are said to be deeply upset by the way they were attacked by the Sussexes, with Meghan accusing Kate of making her cry during a bridesmaid dress fitting ahead of her 2018 royal wedding.
