"We're very much not a racist family."

Prince William has spoken about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s explosive Oprah interview for the first time, saying that he hasn’t spoken to Prince Harry since the interview, and to state that the royal family are “very much not a racist family.”

While visiting a school in east London on Thursday, Prince William was asked by a reporter if he had spoken to his brother since the interview. “I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do,” he said of Harry, who said in the interview that their relationship is ‘space’. “As I’ve said before, I love William to bits,” said Prince Harry. “He’s my brother, we’ve been to hell together. But we’re on different paths. The relationship is ‘space’ at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully.”

When asked if the royal family was a racist family, Prince William said, “we’re very much not racist family.” Before this, the only statement made on the interview came from the Queen, who said that the “issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning,” but that “recollections may vary.”

Watch the video of Prince William below.
