Prince William defends UK royal family against racism claims

LONDON (AP) — Prince William yesterday defended Britain’s royal family against accusations of racism made by his brother Prince Harry and sister-in-law Meghan, saying the royals are “very much not a racist family”.

In comments made during a visit to an east London school, William became the first royal to directly address the explosive interview broadcast on Sunday in the United States (US) that his brother and the Duchess of Sussex gave to Oprah Winfrey.

Buckingham Palace’s sought to respond to Harry and Meghan’s allegations of racism and mistreatment in a 61-word statement, but it has failed to quell the controversy.
