Prince William has insisted the Royals are ‘very much not a racist family’ following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During the two-hour chat, which aired in the UK on Monday night, the Duchess of Sussex claimed there had been ‘conversations and concerns’ about Archie’s skin tone before he was born.
Prince William has now fired back, telling Sky News: “We are very much not a racist family.”
When asked if he’s spoken to his brother since the interview aired, he replied: “I haven’t spoken to him yet but I plan to.”
Buckingham Palace released a statement addressing the matter earlier this week.
It read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.
“While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
During the interview, Harry touched on his ‘strained’ relationship with his brother.
He said: “The relationship is space at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully.”
