The Sussexes made a series of shocking claims about their time as working royals during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Prince William has said his family is not racist and he has not yet spoken to his brother since Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview.
“We are very much not a racist family,” he said after a question from Sky News.
And when asked if he had spoken to his brother yet, the Duke of Cambridge replied: “I haven’t spoken to him yet but I plan to.”
William spoke during a visit to an east London school with the Duchess of Cambridge on Thursday morning.
The Sussexes made a series of shocking claims about their time as working royals during the two-hour interview with Oprah Winfey which was broadcast in the UK on Monday night.Advertisement
These included claims of racism in the palace and that the couple felt unsupported by the Royal Family.
Buckingham Palace issued a rare statement in response promising to “address” the “concerning” allegations, in particular claims that another royal had raised “concerns” with Harry about Archie’s skin colour before he was born.
The couple also made comments about William and Kate during the interview, which was watched on ITV by more than 11 million viewers.
Prince Harry told Oprah his brother and father are “trapped” as royals while Meghan spoke about reports she had made Kate cry ahead of the royal wedding.
Meghan said the “reverse” happened and that it was Kate who made her cry.
She told Winfrey she did not want to be “disparaging to anyone” and claimed Kate “owned it” and apologised with flowers and a note “to take accountability”.
Prince Harry also reference reports that his relationship with his brother is strained.
“The relationship is space at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully,” he told Winfrey.
Prince Charles remained silent at his first public engagements since the Oprah revelations on Tuesday.
During the interview Harry said he felt “really let down” by the royal as he revealed his father stopped taking his calls around the time he decided to step back.
“I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar, he knows what pain feels like, [and] Archie’s his grandson,” he said.
“But at the same time – 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.”
