During the engagement, William addressed the race row sparked by Meghan and Harry’s interview.

William said he hasn’t spoken to his brother yet but will.

He also insisted the royals are “very much not” a racist family.

What happened during the Oprah interview?

During the chat, the Duchess of Sussex claimed there were ‘concerns and conversations’ about how dark Archie’s skin colour might be when he was born within the royal family.

Oprah later confirmed it wasn’t the Queen nor the Duke of Edinburgh who allegedly made the comment.

Earlier this week, the Queen issued a statement on the couple’s interview.

It said the whole family feel “saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan”.

The statement said they’ll be “taken very seriously” and “addressed by the family privately”.
