Prince William ‘can’t hold in anger’ over Oprah interview, expert claims
Prince William "couldn't hold in his anger" when asked if his family was racist following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah on primetime TV, a royal commentator has claimed.
The heir sharply told reporters: "We are very much not a racist family," while out visiting a London school on March 11.
Prince William also bluntly said he had not spoken to his brother following the interview when a Sky News reporter asked him.
Discussing the bluntness of his statement on the podcast Royally Obsessed, Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie said it did not seem his comment was rehearsed or briefed from his press team and came from a place of genuine anger.
Rachel says: "It doesn't feel rehearsed at all, but I’m curious, what were your initial thoughts about this?"
Roberta says her "heart sank" and she thought it would have been better to say nothing or let his comms team come up with a prepared statement.
"I think he let his anger show," she added.
"You know what I mean? He couldn’t hold in his anger and so he threw that kind of statement over the back of his shoulder as he was walking by."
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry accuse Queen's aides of offering 'bad advice'
Rachel added: "You can’t just say something on the fly like this and that’s what’s bothering me the most."
Meghan and Harry accused a member of the Royal Family of making a comment about how dark Archie's skin could be.
The pair have also accused Buckingham Palace of briefing the press against them, but a royal correspondent has denied hearing anything at all from the palace targeting Meghan.
It's now feared Prince Harry may ditch his planned trip to the UK altogether if he and William are unable to mend their rift.
He was supposed to join his brother to unveil a commemorative statue of their late mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday on July 1.
The statue was commissioned by both brothers and will stand in Kensington Palace's Sunken Garden.
