What We Know About Kate Middleton And Prince William's Most Recent Public Appearance

Kate Middleton and Prince William aren't shying away from public life in the wake of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. Instead, the couple is continuing their royal duties with their heads held high. However, all eyes are on William and Kate following the shocking allegations made by Harry and Meghan just last week. During the interview, Meghan told Oprah that there were "concerns and conversations" within the royal family about "how dark" her son Archie's skin would be when he was born (via Page Six). When asked who made the racially insensitive comments, Harry refused to divulge. "That conversation I'm never going to share. It was awkward. I was a bit shocked." However, Harry did confirm that the comments weren't made by his grandparents Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

After the interview aired, William was caught by the press, who had a lot of questions (via People). During his brief talk with the paparazzi, William revealed that he had yet to speak with his younger brother following the interview, but vowed that he would. He also denounced any claims that his family was racist, stating that they are "very much not a racist family." However, William and Kate aren't allowing the drama to impact their work as they busily continue their duties as the future King and Queen of England.

The cause appears to be near to William's heart, as he is a former air ambulance helicopter pilot.
