The Duke of Cambridge has defended the royal family against accusations of racism made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying: “We’re very much not a racist family”.
Prince William made the comments during a visit to a London school on Thursday.
It follows an interview given by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Oprah Winfrey, which was broadcast on STV on Monday.
Meghan and Harry laid bare their lives as a working royal couple, alleging that a member of the family – not the Queen or Duke of Edinburgh – made a racist comment about their unborn son.
Winfrey was left open-mouthed when the duchess, the first mixed-race member of the modern monarchy, said a fellow royal was worried about how dark their son Archie’s skin tone might be before he was born.
When asked whether he had spoken to his brother since the interview, the Duke of Cambridge said: “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet but I will do.”
