William sticks up for the Royals on race

Prince William had the honour of becoming the first member of the Royal family to publicly comment on the racism row sparked by his brother and sister-in-law’s Oprah confessional. During a visit to a school overnight, he was asked by a reporter if the family was racist – his response: “We’re very much not a racist family.” It feels like a month ago, but it was just this week that the interview went to air, including Meghan’s revelation that there were “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he was born”. Those conversations were had with Harry, and he wouldn’t confirm who the person was, except to tell Oprah later that it wasn’t the Queen or Prince Philip. William also said he hasn’t spoken to Harry since the interview, but “I will do.”
