Prince William says the Royal Family “is not racist”

Prince William

If you’ll take Prince William’s word for it, the Royal Family is not racist at all.

The Duke of Cambridge made the comments following accusations made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan and Prince Harry said a royal had expressed concern over “how dark” their son Archie’s skin might be.

But during a visit to a school in Stratford, East London on Thursday, Prince William was asked by a reporter: “Is the Royal Family a racist family, sir?”

The duke replied: “We’re very much not a racist family.”

Asked whether he had spoken to Prince Harry since the Oprah interview, Prince William said: “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet but I will do.”
