Prince William Is First Royal To Publicly Address Meghan and Harry Interview
The Royal family has been fairly tight-lipped about the bombshell-filled Meghan and Harry interview. Buckingham Palace released a statement but none of the Royals themselves have spoken publicly about it, until now.
Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge is the first Royal family member to address the Oprah with Harry and Meghan interview.

The Duke of Cambridge had his first public appearance since the Oprah with Harry and Meghan interview aired. Many of the senior Royal family members have made appearances but none of them have addressed or acknowledged it. Prince Charles was asked about it but he simply nervously laughed instead of answering the question.
Buckingham Palace has also released a statement saying the issues raised will be investigated privately and also expressed love for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Archie. Now for the first time, a Royal has acknowledged the interview.
Hello! has just reported that Prince William the Duke of Cambridge has been asked about the interview and he responded. During his first public appearance since the interview aired William and his wife Kate Middleton visited School21 in Stratford, as it is one of the first schools opening and a part of the Mentally Healthy Schools that Kate launched 2 years ago.
Upon leaving the school, William was asked by a Royal reporter "Sir, have you spoken to your brother since the interview?" to which he responded, "No, I haven't spoken to him yet but I will do."
The reporter then untactfully asked, "Can you just let me know is the Royal family a racist family, sir?" In a lowered voice, Prince William responded to the provocative question, "We're very much not a racist family."
