The Duke of Cambridge released a strict statement on Twitter following the vile racist attacks suffered by black players Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho, and Marcus Rashford on social media. Some people supported his public statement. However, loyal supporters of Meghan Markle used the row to draw attention to the racism allegations made within his own family earlier this year.
Some people accused William of failing to address Prince Harry and Meghan’s claims that their son’s skin color had been an issue a member of the Firm, according to Express. Moreover, this unnamed member made racist comments about the baby even before he was born.
William insisted that “we are very much not a racist family,” while responding to a reporter after these allegations were aired. However, some fans weren’t pleased that he didn’t go further to show solidarity with Meghan and Harry.
“I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match,” William tweeted. It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behavior.”
“It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable. He signed off the statement with his “W” initial.
