Prince William was furious family matters aired in public, new book claims

Prince William was said to be "furious" after seeing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah in March, a new book has claimed.

An updated version of Finding Freedom, an unauthorised biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, has claimed the future king was upset private family matters were being aired in public.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand chart the Sussexes' past year, from when they left the UK after stepping down as senior royals of The Firm to alleged tensions at the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral in April.

The legal team for Harry and Meghan have said the authors do not speak for the couple, and they did not "collaborate" with them, nor were they interviewed for the book, writes The Independent.

In the new epilogue, the authors claim sources told them William "was understood to be 'furious' that private family matters were being discussed in the public domain" following the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March.

During the explosive chat, Meghan and Harry made allegations against The Firm, claiming a member of the royal family had made a racist comment on Archie's skin colour before he was born.

Following the interview, Prince William was asked if the 'royal family were racist' by a reporter during an event.

The Duke of Cambridge replied: "We're very much not a racist family," and has not said anything on the matter further.

A statement from the Queen and Buckingham Palace in the days after the CBS programme said: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."

Meghan Markle was also praised by royal fans for speaking out about having suicidal thoughts while pregnant with Archie.

Mental health charities revealed statistics that showed people are more likely to seek help after seeing someone in the spotlight speak of their own mental health struggles.
