A reporter asked him: "Sir, have you spoken to your brother since the interview?," to which he replied: "No, I haven't spoken to him yet but I will be."

They then asked: "Can you just let me know, is the Royal family a racist family?," to which William hit back: "We are very much not a racist family."
Meghan told the chat show host that there were "concerns" over the colour of her son's skin within the Royal family, but she refused to name the person who said it.
The 39 year old said: "In those months when I was pregnant, we had in tandem the conversations of him not being given security or a title, and also concerns about how dark his skin might be when he's born.

"They didn't want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and that he wasn't going to receive security."
Oprah, 67, enquired for more details, but Meghan refused to name the royal member who made the comments, saying it would be "very damaging to them."
Harry, 36, backed up her claims when he joined for the latter part of the interview, but also decided not to divulge which members of the family had made the comments.
However, Oprah has since confirmed that he told her off camera that it was neither of his grandparents.
