Prince William responds to allegations of racism against the royal family

The Duke of Cambridge has defended the royal family from racist accusations in an interview with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle to Oprah Winfrey.

Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, attended school in Stratford, east London. On leaving school, a reporter asked Prince William if the royal family was racist.

“We’re not a racist family at all,” the duke replied.

When asked if he had spoken to Prince Harry after his interview with Oprah, Prince William replied, “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will.”

During an interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle said the royals had concerns about how dark her son Archie’s skin would be when he was born.

Prince Harry confirmed that there was such a conversation but did not say with whom of the royal family members. After the broadcast, answering Oprah Winfrey’s question, he said that it was not the Queen or her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The interviews, in general, and especially the accusations of racism, caused a shock reaction in Britain – Labor MPs demanded an investigation of the incident from the royal court, the Minister of Children’s Affairs Vicki Ford said that there is no place for racism in British society.

Buckingham Palace said on Tuesday that the British royal family is serious about the problems that the couple faced after the wedding, mentioned by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“The issues raised, especially those related to race, are troubling. While some memories may vary, they are taken with all seriousness and will be reviewed by the [royal] family privately, ” the palace said in a statement.
