Prince William has denied allegations that the British royal family is racist behind closed doors following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

William, the second in line to the throne, attempted to shut down the accusations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during a visit to a school in east London with his wife Kate Middleton on Thursday, CNN reports.

When a reporter asked him if the royals are racist, Prince William replied, “We’re very much not a racist family.”

As the Duke of Cambridge walked past the press, he revealed that he has not contacted his brother Prince Harry since the interview with Winfrey aired. “I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do,” William said.

The 38-year-old’s response comes after Meghan and Harry’s tell-all interview in which they opened up about how a lack of support led them to leave the royal family.

During the sit-down, the couple revealed there were concerns about their son Archie’s skin color prior to his birth and how dark he would be. However, the couple refused to name the person who brought up the topic.

On Tuesday, Buckingham Palace responded to the allegations made by Harry and Meghan in their interview. “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning,” the statement read.

“While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan, and Archie will always be much loved family members.”

Meghan and Harry initially stepped back from their senior positions in the royal family in January 2020. Last month, the palace revealed their break from the monarchy would be permanent.
