Fury as William vilified for ‘refusing to speak out on racism’ in film

562

PRINCE William has been vilified for “refusing to speak out on racism” in a new TV film about Prince Harry and Meghan leaving the Royal Family.

Promotional images show the actors portraying Prince William and Prince Harry arguing where the Duke of Sussex appears to lecture his older brother for not speaking out on racism claims made against his son. The controversial film entitled Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, is a dramatisation of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping back from the monarchy last year.

The couple alleged that concerns were raised among members of the Royal Family about how dark Archie’s skin might be when he was born.

Meghan said: “In those months when I was pregnant…we have in tandem the conversation of ‘He won’t be given security. He’s not going to be given a title,’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

In the interview, Meghan did not tell Ms Winfrey whether the concerns were raised by one person or several people, or name the person who made the comment as she claimed it would be “very damaging to them”.

This comment, among other controversial claims during the interview, caused a rift amid senior members of the Royal Family, with Harry and Meghan relocating to the US after stepping down from the monarchy.

In the TV film, Harry (played by Jordan Dean) berates William (played by Jordan Whalen) for “not speaking out on racism” after comments were made about Archie, the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

In the televised Kensington Gardens bust-up, William is seen telling Harry: “What causes problems isn’t colour, it’s culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a royal.”

The angered Duke of Sussex lashes out on screen at his brother saying: “You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism. As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying.”

Elsewhere in the film, Harry is also seen arguing with Prince Charles on the phone after his father refuses to see him about his concerns.

The televised film is due to be broadcasted in the US today, exploring the “real details” behind the couple’s decision to leave their royal duties behind.
