London — Prince William on Thursday became the first British royal to directly defend his family against accusations of racism made by his sister-in-law Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and her husband Prince Harry in their interview with Oprah Winfrey. William told journalists that the royals are "very much not a racist family."

Commenting during a visit to a school in east London, Prince William added that he had not spoken to his brother Harry since the interview, but said he would.
