'Not a racist family': Prince William defends Royal Family against Meghan Markle's accusation

Earlier this month, in a tell-all interview, Meghan opened up to Oprah about her father's "betrayal" after he posed for paparazzi photos ahead of her wedding day. The duchess revealed that Thomas lied to her back then and said he was "absolutely not" working with the press when in reality, he was helping the tabloids. "'I just need you to tell me. And if you tell me the truth, we can help.' And he wasn't able to do that," Meghan recalled, revealing that she and Harry tried to offer him protection from the tabloid. 

However, two days after Oprah's interview, Thomas appeared on ‘Good Morning America’ and responded to his daughter's allegations against the British royal family and their racist remark on her child. The senior Markle termed it as just a 'dumb question' and said he did not think the royal family was racist and all of it was bulls**t.
