Prince William didn't hold back after some people made racist remarks about England's soccer team. However, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry fans called out the dad-of-three for never sticking up for his sister-in-law, whose mother is Black and father is white.
One person wrote, "See the hypocrisy, where were you when your brother's wife was being harassed, vilified?? Where was this energy, William? You would have even kept quiet than putting out this statement, you must be even the one who questioned the baby's skin color," while another added, "Yet, you were OK with Meghan Markle being the victim of rampant racism from members of Royal Family. You can’t have it both ways."
A third user added, "Perhaps if you have a spare ten minutes search the name 'Meghan' and have a deep reflection," while someone fumed, "You are not qualified! Is racism only unacceptable when aimed at England players???"
After Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho missed their penalty shots, people called them out.
"I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match. It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour," William tweeted. "It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable."
Meanwhile, in March, Meghan claimed that someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color.
The Queen fired back at the time. “The following statement is issued by Buckingham Palace on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen,” the statement, which was shared on social media on Tuesday, March 9, began.
“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Meghan and Harry. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members," the message continued.
For his part, William said: "We are very much not a racist family."
