What did Prince William say?

Speaking on Thursday, per CTV News, Prince William described the royals as "very much not a racist family."

When asked by a reporter if he'd spoken to his brother since the interview with Oprah, William confirmed that he hadn't but said "I will do."

He made the comments during an official visit to a London school with Kate Middleton, days after Meghan and Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah.

On Sunday night, the much-anticipated interview between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey aired on TV in Canada and the United States.

During the show, the couple made several significant revelations about their life as working members of the Royal Family.

Among other things, Meghan said she’d received no support from the royal household when she was feeling suicidal and struggling with her mental health.

She also said there were “concerns and conversations” about the colour of baby Archie’s skin before he was born and revealed Kate Middleton had apparently made her cry just days before her wedding.

Harry confirmed that he’d been financially cut off after moving to Canada and admitted that his relationships with his family were “spaced at the moment.” 

Has anybody else spoken out?

Prince William is the first member of the Royal Family to speak out personally about what was said during the Sunday night show, although the Queen did issue a formal statement.

Her message said that Buckingham Palace was “saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.”

It noted that “some recollections may vary,” but promised that the issues brought up by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be taken seriously and addressed by the family “privately.”

While the royals themselves have kept pretty quiet since the interview, many celebrities and high-profile figures (including the White House) have spoken out in support of Meghan and Harry.
