Prince William was the first to publicly and candidly address his brother, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle’s shocking tell-all interview.
This week had news outlets pouring in on the news about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s shocking claims about the truth behind palace doors and why they chose to leave the UK.
The palace has since released a short and broad statement about the former senior royals’ tell-all interview, but today, Prince William candidly spoke to the press about the issue.
During a visit to an east London school, William faced a reporter who asked if he had contact with Harry since the bombshell interview aired internationally.
“I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I plan to,” he replied, adding that the royal family is “very much not a racist family.” William’s wife, Kate Middleton, was with him during the visit but remained silent.
Harry and Markle previously appeared in a CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in the UK on Monday night. Among the many things the couple revealed was the racism that went on in the palace.
Harry noted that he and his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, continue to have a great relationship.

However, the father-of-one admitted to feeling hurt by his father, Prince Charles, who at one point stopped answering his phone calls. Harry revealed:
“I will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened. And I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship.”
Meanwhile, Harry noted that he and his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, continue to have a great relationship and virtually see each other from time to time.
He also told Winfrey, behind the scenes, that his grandmother and grandfather, Prince Charles, were not included in the discussion about Archie’s race.
