PRINCE William was FURIOUS over Prince Harry's accusations of racism against the Royal Family, it is claimed.
Like millions around the world, William is said to to have reacted to his brother and Meghan Markle's bombshell claims about racism remarks at the heart of the monarchy with shock.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the claims earlier this year during their sensational Oprah Winfrey interview in which they suggested a senior royal – not the Queen or Prince Philip – made racist remarks about Archie.
Shortly after the interview aired, William was asked “Is the royal family a racist family?” during a visit to a London school. He snapped back “We’re very much not a racist family.”
And according to a new version of the book Finding Freedom by Meghan Markle's friend Omid Scobie, behind the scenes "was understood to be 'furious' that private family matters were being discussed” so publicly.

KATE MIDDLETON TO MISS OUT ON TRADITIONAL ROYAL HONOUR ON HER 40TH BIRTHDAY
It is yet unclear what celebrations Kate has in mind for her landmark birthday, or if she will keep it low-key like Meghan.
While this year The Duchess of Cambridge had her birthday in the middle of lockdown on January 9, meaning she had to do something quiet, next year she will be missing out on one particular honour.
This is that The Duchess will not hear the traditional chimes of Westminister Abbey when she celebrates her 40th birthday. This is due to changes rung in to cut costs.
It is normal for the senior royals to hear the bells ringing at the Abbey on their birthdays, with Camilla Parker Bowles included among them.
But the bells have not rung at the Abbey since April 2020 due to the pandemic.

MEGHAN MARKLE HAS ‘UNQUESTIONABLY CHANGED’ PRINCE HARRY, SAYS ROYAL EXPERT
The Duke of Sussex believes that he became trapped as a member of the royal family after his wedding to Meghan in 2018.
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams explained that there is a “rivalry” between the two brothers and that Harry changed after meeting his wife.
Speaking to Entertainment Daily! he said: “Many think that the fact that William grew up knowing he would one day be king and Harry had no defined role, led to rivalry between brothers who were considered inseparable.
“Some say Harry resented not being taken seriously, despite his military service and charitable work.
"Harry now believes he was trapped as a member of the royal family and that William currently is but doesn’t know it.
“The rift between them, long reported and first confirmed in the ITV documentary about their South Africa trip, is public and serious.
“It was his marriage to Meghan which unquestionably changed him.”

Their preferred reporter spoke about the couple’s strong connection with Her Majesty while being interviewed by Good Morning America.
The Sussexes’ biography co-writer was asked: “What’s the latest on that relationship with the Queen?”
Scobie replied from London: “I’m so glad you asked that because of course we did release some details from the book, this week.
“I spoke to sources close to the couple, who spoke about their disappointment in the institution of the monarchy, and the sort of lack of accountability taken after some of the revelations that they made in the Oprah Winfrey interview.
“Particularly when they came to the racism claims.
“But when it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever – they have nothing but love for her.”

Julia Hartley-Brewer said: “I don’t think he looks like he’s enjoying himself at all” – before discussing Harry’s private flight.
“It shows that, A, they’re out of touch, but also, B, they’re huge hypocrites,” Angela said.
“They tell us all what we have to do, but they don’t think they’re involved in that. They’re the exception because they’re so grand and important.”
