British Royal Family News find that Prince William is taking action. There’s a new report that says the Duke of Cambridge has vowed to personally “stamp out” racist abuse in sport and in particular towards British footballers.
Yet, a lot of royal critics can’t help but wonder why the future King of England didn’t take any action when his sister-in-law Meghan Markle was subjected to racial abuse by the British press before she and Prince Harry left for greener pastures in California. Here’s what you need to know.
British Royal Family News: Prince William Is Taking A Hard Stance Against Racism In British Sport
As President of the Football Association, Prince William is backing calls for a new regular working group between the social media companies, the FA and football leagues after a spate of abuse directed at top players.
In a recent emergency meeting as part of his role with the FA, William said “enough was enough” after several high profile black footballers including Manchester United star Marcus Rashford revealed they were abused online.
He said, “It makes me so angry that people are allowed to act like this. I’ve had enough of the excuses, it has gone on for too long. This is on every one of us and we must come together to stamp it out.”
Of course, a lot of critics can’t help but point out that both Prince William and Kate Middleton were particularly quiet when Meghan Markle was dealing with all of the abuse about her background and her ethnicity while she and Prince Harry were still full-time working members of the royal family.
However, Prince William did take action after Manchester United and England striker Marcus Rashford took to social media last month to describe the racist abuse he received this week as “humanity and social media at its worst.”
The future King of England took to the Kensington Royal Instagram and Twitter accounts to write, “Racist abuse – whether on the pitch, in the stands, or on social media – is despicable and it must stop now. We all have a responsibility to create an environment where such abuse is not tolerated, and those who choose to spread hate and division are held accountable for their actions. That responsibility extends to the platforms where so much of this activity now takes place.”
Prince William then added, “I commend all those players, supporters, clubs and organizations who continue to call out and condemn this abuse in the strongest terms,” before adding his signature W at the end.
