Prince William has publicly hit back against his brother Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s claim of racism in the royal family.
The Duke of Cambridge is the first royal to personally respond to the allegation.
Meghan and Harry: Prince William Denies racist accusation
During his first royal engagement since the Oprah interview, William was asked about the allegation of racism and he denied it.
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.”
Meghan claimed during the interview, which aired on March 7, that a senior royal raised concerns about Archie’s skin tone and if he might be “too brown” while she was still pregnant with him.
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.
