Prince William defended the monarchy against accusations of racism made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying: “We’re very much not a racist family.” The Duke of Cambridge made the comment during his first public appearance since highly damaging claims of bigotry and a lack of support were levelled at the Royal Family by Harry and Meghan in their interview with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey. William also said he has yet to speak to his brother Harry about their disclosures, which drew a global television audience of nearly 50 million, but said he will.
Speaking to Australian breakfast show Sunrise, royal expert Robert Jobson said: “I’m sure in all honesty anybody won’t know they’ve spoken besides the brothers themselves.
“William said he’s going to do it, I’m sure he’s going to.
“I don’t believe that it’s going to a particularly friendly conversation but they’ve got issues to address.”
Addressing concerns both brothers will not attend the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue, Mr Jobson added: “One would hope that could happen amicably.
“I don’t believe Meghan will be there.
“Mainly due to the fact she will be giving birth but equally it’s almost unthinkable at the moment.
“Hopefully they will be able to do that as brothers but at the moment it seems unthinkable to do that because there’s so many problems in this family have been aired in public.
“Unless they can get a handle on it, I don’t see how it will happen.”

It comes as Winfrey was left open-mouthed when Meghan and Harry recounted that a family member – not the Queen or Duke of Edinburgh – had raised concerns about how dark their unborn son Archie’s skin tone might be.
There has been much speculation about which member of the royal family they were accusing of racism.
But during the interview, the couple would not be drawn on who had deeply offended them, and Winfrey later said Harry wanted it known it was not his grandparents.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said allegations of racism made by the Sussexes were a “matter now for the family”.

Asked at his local election campaign launch, he said: “The issues that Meghan raised of race and mental health are serious.
“The palace has now responded and I do think it is a matter now for the family and I do hope it is resolved as soon as possible.”
In its statement, Buckingham Palace said the issues raised in Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview, especially over race, were “concerning” and would be addressed by the Queen and her family privately.
The royals appear to be at odds over the version of some events described by the Sussexes, as the statement highlighted how “some recollections may vary”.
