The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, is going through a “difficult period” after his brother Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interviewed American talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
Just a few weeks ago, Harry and Markle sat down with the Oscar-winning star to discuss their struggles since the latter joined the royal family.
During the revelation, the pair made allegations of racism and turned a blind eye to the mental health needs of the Royal Family and the institution as a whole.
According to Fox News, since the interview was first broadcast, it has become understood that William was not happy with his brother and sister-in-law, who also made mention of William’s wife, Kate Middleton, during of the interview.
Now a source has told Us Weekly the Duke of Cambridge is keen to share his side of the story publicly.
“The Queen is insisting that the Royal Family handle the matter in private,” the insider said.
In addition, they also said that Queen Elizabeth II “believes the retaliation will only fuel the fire and make the situation worse.”
“William is having a hard time holding back,” the source shared. “He wants to put his side out there.”
As reported by Fox News, the royal would like to “erase the racial allegations,” the source said.
William had previously responded to claims made by his brother and sister-in-law in a public statement deemed “unusual” by royal expert Katie Nicholl.
When confronted by reporters shortly after the interview aired, William said the royal family was “really not a racist family.”
He added that at the time he had not yet spoken to Harry about the content of the interview. Gayle King recently reported that the brothers had spoken since, but the conversations were “not productive.”
