Prince William Condemns ‘Racist Abuse’ Toward Black English Soccer Players

The English football team lost to Italy in Sunday’s Euro 2020 match

Prince William spoke out Monday against the “racist abuse” being directed at Black English soccer players following Sunday’s loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 match.

“I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England players after last night’s match,” said a post signed by the Duke of Cambridge shared with his wife, Kate Middleton. “It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour. It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable.”

Three Black players missed penalties in Sunday’s big game, contributing to Italy’s win. They were targeted with brutal social media posts from fans.

Prince William’s sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, trended on the platform as observers questioned why he hadn’t spoken out as forcefully against the racism she said she endured during her time living among the royals. Her public call-out of her time there was made alongside her husband, Prince Harry.

Even before she wed Prince Harry, Duchess of Sussex , Meghan Markle was subject to racist coverage in the UK press that Middleton was not subject to.

It’s clear Meghan Markle experienced a cocktail of sexism, classism, and racism but the main issue with the Duchess of Sussex is her own personality. Her strength, beautify and charisma was a threat on its own.

It’s clear Duchess of Sussex experienced a cocktail of sexism, classism, and racism but the main issue with the Duchess of Sussex is her own personality. Her strength, beautify and charisma was a threat on its own.

“On sight”- the palace would have seen that Meghan’s ability to outshine anyone in the Royal Family was inevitable. Prior to her arrival, royal engagements were mediocre at best. Much as I believe racism to be a factor, I do not think it may have been the main factor.

The Royal Family hierarchical system means that only the direct heirs are worthy of the spotlight and it was important that Meghan’s light be dampened so as not to expose the Monarchy’s inadequacies. The Sussexes should never have lived in Kensington Palace.

Moreover, Harry and Meghan were clearly in love and made little effort to hide this. Harry was happy to let Meghan be herself and in so doing further highlighter the deficiencies in most of the relationships in the Monarchy, including William’s.

Harry and Meghan were everything a King and Queen should be – it was too evident, it was too much to bear, because if it was just case of sexism, classism, racism, the palace would have stopped by now. After all they have left. Isn’t that what they wanted?

Why haven’t they called off the hounds? Well, because as long as Meghan remains the Duchess of Sussex with her innate ability to “outshine”, she remains a threat. It’s why the titles matter, why the media keep talking about divorce. They need Meghan to disappear.

Princess Diana #at60′ here is why princess Diana will always be remembered as the “People’s Princess.”

“No one can fill her shoes in terms of the work she did.”

Princess Diana captured the world’s attention as a royal trendsetter, but during her time in the public eye, she also became a prominent philanthropic force. Diana worked tirelessly on behalf of charities around the world, using her fame to raise awareness of a number of important humanitarian issues. Twenty years after her death, here’s why Diana will always be remembered as the “People’s Princess.”

1) She changed the face of the British monarchy.

Through her charity work, Diana highlighted how royalty, which had previously been known for its stuffiness, could be in touch with the public. In her interview with BBC’s Panorama in 1995, she said, “I would like a monarchy that has more contact with its people.” This statement became something of a personal mission for the Princess. Diana was at some point patron of over 100 charities. During her many visits to hospitals, schools and fundraising galas, she became known for spending hours talking to people and listening to their stories. Although she found the media’s intrusion into her personal life “intolerable,” Diana found a way to use this to bring attention to the people and the causes that needed it most.

2) She led a campaign for a worldwide ban on landmines.

After a visit to Angola in 1997, Diana became anti-landmine activists’ most prominent advocate. During that trip, which was captured by the BBC for a Heart of the Matter documentary, the Princess was photographed putting her own safety at risk as she walked through a recently cleared minefield. “I’d read the statistics that Angola has the highest percentage of amputees anywhere in the world,” she told the cameras. “That one person in every 333 had lost a limb, most of them through land mine explosions. But that hadn’t prepared me for reality.” Diana’s commitment to mine clearance work captured the public’s attention and decades after she started her campaign, the support for the cause continues. Her son Prince Harry, who is now patron of leading landmine charity, The HALO Trust, recently called for the world to become free of the weapons by 2025.

3) She changed the world’s perception of HIV and AIDS.

In April 1987, when speculation around the virus was rife, Diana was invited to open Britain’s first AIDS ward at Middlesex hospital. A photograph, which made front-page news around the world, showed her shaking hands with HIV-positive patients without wearing gloves. This publicly challenged the notion that HIV/AIDS was passed from person to person by touch and highlighted Diana’s affection and compassion for people living with the disease. In the following years, she went on to make several bedside visits to patients at a number of hospitals, including a hostel for abandoned children in Rio de Janeiro and a hospice in Toronto. At the time of her death, Gavin Hart, of the National AIDS Trust, told the BBC: “In our opinion, Diana was the foremost ambassador for AIDS awareness on the planet and no one can fill her shoes in terms of the work she did.

“No one can fill her shoes in terms of the work she did.”

4) She raised awareness of leprosy.

Like her AIDS efforts, Diana traveled to countries with a high leprosy rate in order to remove the stigma surrounding the disease. As patron of The Leprosy Mission, she visited hospitals in India, Nepal and Zimbabwe and by spending time with patients, she dispelled one of the myths surrounding the illness—that it can be passed on by touch. “It has always been my concern to touch people with leprosy, trying to show in a simple action that they are not reviled, nor are we repulsed,” she said of the disease.

“It has always been my concern to touch people with leprosy, trying to show in a simple action that they are not reviled, nor are we repulsed.”

5) She made regular personal visits to London’s homeless centers.

Despite relinquishing most of her charitable causes after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996, Diana became patron of Centrepoint in 1992 and remained in the role until her death in 1997. Both William and Harry were taken by the Princess to see the help offered at the charity’s shelters and, at the age of 23, William followed in his mother’s footsteps when he became patron. Speaking at the time, he told The Telegraph: “My mother introduced that sort of area to me a long time ago. It was a real eye-opener and I am very glad she did. It has been something I have held close to me for a long time.”

6) She reached out to children.

Diana displayed a great affinity for young people and became a champion for some the most vulnerable. As patron of The Royal Marsden Hospital, known for treating childhood cancers, and Great Ormand Street Hospital for Children, she was often pictured comforting children and made a personal connection with many. Speaking about her work with the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, she said: “I make the trips at least three times a week, and spend up to four hours at a time with patients holding their hands and talking to them. Some of them will live and some will die, but they all need to be loved while they are here. I try to be there for them.”

“Some of them will live and some will die, but they all need to be loved while they are here. I try to be there for them.”

7) She was an avid supporter of the arts.

Diana loved dance and after her divorce, The English National Ballet was the only non-humanitarian charity she chose to dedicate her time to. She was often seen enjoying performances and was known to take her sons William and Harry along with her. Her support and presence at fundraising galas helped to raise thousands of pounds for the company.

8) She was a devoted mother.

Whether she was doing the school run or taking her sons on a day out to a theme park, Diana did her best to give her young sons a “normal” childhood. She was passionate about helping others, but royal commentators said motherhood was clearly the job she loved the most. She led by example and often took William and Harry along with her on hospital visits. Today, the Princes continue to support their mother’s legacy as patrons of some of the charities she so prominently supported.

Harry on Lili: “We’ve been lucky so far, she’s very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy.”

The Duke of Sussex today joined forces with celebrities including Ed Sheeran and Anne-Marie to surprise the winners of this year’s WellChild Awards.

Prince Harry attended a private party for the remarkable children and young people recognised by the charity and the healthcare workers who care for them.

Before meeting the winners Harry swapped parenting notes with fellow new dad Ed, whose daughter Lyra Antarctica was born last year.

“Congratulations, a girl right?” asked Ed. “We just had a little girl ten months ago now. You’re still in the trenches now! How do you manage with two?”

“Two is definitely a juggle,” replied the Duke, whose baby daughter Lilibet Diana arrived on 4 June.

Speaking to another guest later, Harry said of Lili: “We’ve been lucky so far, she’s very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy.”

Harry and Ed caught up after the singer surprised the young winners, taking time to chat to them at their socially distanced tables.

The Duke, who has been patron of Wellchild since 2007, then introduced Anne-Marie to the stage for an acoustic performance.

Harry arrived in the UK last Friday and has been isolating at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, ahead of today’s event.

A source close to the Duke told HELLO!: “He was very excited to be able to be there in person. WellChild has been one of the charities he’s supported for so long and it means a lot to him – perhaps more so now than ever since he’s become a father himself.”

The socially distanced afternoon tea took place on the Sir Joseph Banks Lawn at Kew Gardens and was attended by other famous faces including Amanda Holden, Ronnie Wood and his wife Sally and AJ Pritchard.

Harry last attended the awards with wife Meghan in October 2019, breaking down in tears as he paid tribute to the winners for the first time since becoming a father himself.

The Duke said: “Since becoming patron of WellChild in 2007, this organisation and the people within it have held an extraordinarily special place in my heart.

“I wasn’t a father at the time, and yet the stories of these children and parents transcended that. I didn’t need to be a dad to feel the impact of this invaluable work.

“Now as a father of two, I feel all the more connected, inspired and in awe of the resilience of these families, who power through indescribable challenges with the support of WellChild.”

He added: “The health of our children, of all of us, could not have been more on the forefront of our minds during the past year.

“And, throughout this time, the WellChild community has set an example for how to show up and act with compassion for each other.

“I could not be prouder to be here, to meet this year’s WellChild award winners, to thank the nurses and doctors for all they do, and to celebrate these amazing families.”

Last year’s event could not take place because of the pandemic and many of the vulnerable children, young people and families supported by WellChild have faced huge challenges during that time.

WellChild Chief Executive, Colin Dyer said: “There are more children and young people than ever before in the UK living with long-term, serious health needs. The Coronavirus outbreak has placed these children and families under more pressure than many of us can comprehend.

“The WellChild Awards 2021, in association with GSK, will be a unique opportunity to recognise and highlight the immense challenges they have faced and to celebrate the remarkable positivity, resilience and spirit they have demonstrated. It will also help us to shine a light on the dedication of those around them, from siblings, professionals and volunteers who have gone above and beyond to help them through such challenging times.”

The Awards, sponsored by GSK, are run by WellChild, the national charity for seriously ill children. They celebrate the resilience of children living with serious illnesses or complex conditions and people dedicated to caring for them.

The winners were chosen from hundreds of nominations from across the UK to win the categories of Inspirational Child and Young Person, Young Carer, Inspirational Nurse, Inspirational Doctor, Outstanding Health Professional and Volunteer.


From memory, and someone will surely have the receipt, the transitional year was meant to mean continued funding until Harry and Meghan had another source of income. That means initially Charles agreed to fund them April 2020 to end of March 2021
Charles cut them off July 2020.

For people who can’t or rather won’t understand because it’s easier to hate them if you can misinterpret them. The first quarter of 2020 MEANS April through June 2020. The new tax year begins in April. How are this many people reaching adulthood not knowing what Quarter 1 is???

Charles cut them off July 2020.

Harry has an inheritance that’s likely into the millions, but they also need security that costs into the millions. Especially because the press has riled up the public into a hate filled frenzy which likely means death threats/ real attempts


To recap, after not being able to earn an income as a working royal, Charles cut off his son after 3 months knowing they had a security cost burden into the millions due to threat that they inherited and that the palaces at the v least did nothing to diffuse when it escalated

Why would you do this to your own child?

Yes we aren’t talking of them being instantly broke, but of a very real security threat that only exists because he is Charles and Diana’s son/the Queens grandson, and as a visible ex-serviceman and a cost of several millions to cover it

That’s not to mention the escalation in threat once the vitriol against Meghan started.

So yes Harry and Meghan began to look for sources of income that would meet their financial needs to cover security and their charitable ones. But why are the BRF/Bmedia so mad about it?

Well no one cuts off their child 3 months into a 1 year arrangement if they aren’t using finance and in this case the very real threat of danger to life to coerce them into doing what they want. It’s financial and emotional abuse and bad parenting for rich people 101

They wanted Harry and Meghan to fail.

To crawl back and quietly take whatever abuse they were dealt from the media with the knowledge that the physical safety it afforded them was contingent on their silence. That their mental health meant nothing & they could never leave.

All of this safety will go away if they stepped out of line again. They should take Meghan being demonised for existing by the media for wearing the wrong colour tights or nail polish, or eating avocados. As long as it makes the heir and his spouse look good by comparison.

And the warning shot was having their physical safety put at direct risk. No more funding for security, locations revealed etc. In the hope that the cost would send them running back. But they said no.

Wealth doesn’t mean that you can’t be made to feel scared, or powerless, or small in the face of the machinery working to keep you trapped & quiet. Harry and Meghan said no, despite all that. It takes a lot to walk away knowing it might be the end of everything you know .

But they did walk away. They negotiated multimillion dollar deals in order to be able to fund their security AND continue their charitable works. So what now? What can the BRF do now they they didn’t fail?

The media isn’t misconstruing every third word accidentally. You don’t accidentally misunderstand someone saying their child likes books read TO THEM as a 2 year old is reading their own books. You don’t pretend the meaning of Quarter 1 has somehow been changed.

And all of this ‘misinterpretation’ doesn’t just conveniently coincide with bad news about the ones who didn’t dare to leave. This is continued punishment, and an example to others stay in line or you will never know peace.


The BRF could have had everything the Harry and Meghan have achieved from books, to charity events to tv programs as part of their own successes. If only they’d been willing to stand up for them even a little.

But they’d rather not be made to look bad for doing barely anything in comparison. If the ‘journalists’ who supposedly report without ‘fear or favour’ actually reported THE truth rather than their own made up version of it once in a while I wonder if anything would change?

At the moment they seem intent on reinventing facts and added interpretation where the truth speaks for itself. They really are telling people to reject the evidence of their own eyes and ears.

Where is the article decrying use of a helicopter 47 TIMES by the man doing the environment documentary? Where is the reporting on the empty easy jet PR stunt that was used to make heir and spouse look like ‘normal’ people when Harry and Meghan were caught using private jet?

Harry and Meghan are human, they will make genuine mistakes. But they are out there trying their BEST in an environment/media that is waiting for them to fail, to stumble, to err so they can make money from writing about it, deflect bad news with it, say I told so.
