The Duke of Cambridge publically responded to the allegations put to the Royal Family during Oprah’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. While visiting a school in East London on Thursday, his first face to face engagement since the programme aired, Prince William was “itching to speak” according to royal expert Robert Jobson. The Duke did address the racism row that has engulfed the Palace telling the press: “We are very much not a racist family.”
Mr Jobson told Australian station 7News: “Normally when you through questions like that at the royals it has to be cleared beforehand.
“This certainly wasn’t the case, the reporter put the question to them and they were things you couldn’t just leave hanging.
“The bottom line is William looked like he had been itching to speak and he got his comments out.
“I thought he spoke well and I think it had to be said.”
It was in response to allegations from Meghan and Harry that an unnamed member of the Royal Family had raised “concerns” about how dark Archie’s skin would be before he was born.

Sources suggest that Prince William and Harry are both “still committed” to coming together for the unveiling of a statue of their late mother Princess Diana in London this summer.
However, earlier this week Prince William admitted that he had not even spoken to Harry about the TV interview – five days after it aired.
Ms Nicholl told The Royal Beat that Harry is still planning to come back to the UK this summer.

She explained: “I think it is absolutely Harry’s intention to come over for the statue unveiling, but that depends on the pandemic and travel.
“They also have a baby on the way, which is wonderful news, so I think that might mean Meghan doesn’t come over.
“But I think it is incredibly important that Harry does, because I think the future of the Monarchy is not just being modern and being progressive and embracing all these issues we’ve talked about – not being seen to shy away from them – but being unified.
“If they are not unified and symbolising unity, then some people will say ‘what is the point?’
