Prince William wants you to know that neither he, nor anyone else in his family, is racist. His comments on Thursday came after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s two-hour, tell-all interview with Oprah earlier this week, which sparked a wide range of reactions on both sides of the pond.
During the interview, Markle made damaging allegations about her time with the royal family, indicating that someone had asked the couple about the color of their child’s skin, and alleging that Markle didn’t receive support for mental health issues she was facing.
The Buckingham Palace released a statement earlier this week, in response to the interview:
“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.”
