‘We are very much not a racist family’: Prince William says he hasn’t spoken to Harry yet but plans to

Written by on 11/03/2021

Prince William has said his family is not racist and he has not yet spoken to his brother since Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview.

“We are very much not a racist family,” he said after a question from Sky News.

And when asked if he had spoken to his brother yet, the Duke of Cambridge replied: “I haven’t spoken to him yet but I plan to.”

William spoke during a visit to an east London school with the Duchess of Cambridge on Thursday morning.

The Sussexes made a series of shocking claims about their time as working royals during the two-hour interview with Oprah Winfey which was broadcast in the UK on Monday night.

These included claims of racism in the palace and that the couple felt unsupported by the Royal Family.

Buckingham Palace issued a rare statement in response promising to “address” the “concerning” allegations, in particular claims that another royal had raised “concerns” with Harry about Archie’s skin colour before he was born.

The couple also made comments about William and Kate during the interview, which was watched on ITV by more than 11 million viewers.

Prince Harry told Oprah his brother and father are “trapped” as royals while Meghan spoke about reports she had made Kate cry ahead of the royal wedding.

Meghan said the “reverse” happened and that it was Kate who made her cry.

She told Winfrey she did not want to be “disparaging to anyone” and claimed Kate “owned it” and apologised with flowers and a note “to take accountability”.

Prince Charles remained silent at his first public engagements since the Oprah revelations on Tuesday.
