Such a lazy accusation from the Duke of Sussex - apparently playing the ‘racism’ card rather than address the possibility that his wife's plummeting popularity may have something to do with the way she has behaved before and since their wedding.
He needs to cast his mind back to the happiness the British people expressed when he got engaged. How joyful people were for him. The British people eagerly looked forward to this dollop of 'fresh blood'. People commented on what a great thing it was that we were to have a biracial princess, reflecting our multicultural society at the highest level.
Then the demands started to surface. No homeless people were to be seen on the streets of Windsor on the day of their wedding so as not to 'spoil' the look of it; so they were swept away, and their meagre belongings confiscated by the Police "for security reasons". Meghan and Harry, the 'humanitarians', could have said: "not in our name".
They did not.
Then there were the tone-deaf, patronising California Bumper Sticker ‘affirmations’ scrawled on bananas for sex workers from a woman dressed in £1500 worth of Oscar de la Renta, sporting a £300k diamond ring.
Then there was the £500k 'baby shower' in NY, popping over on a private jet whilst telling everyone else to lower their carbon footprint.
Then there was the clearing of 40 seats from the stands of No1 court at Wimbledon so Meghan could watch her buddy Serena Williams’ match in "privacy", leaving the people who had paid for those seats queueing outside.
Skating over the confusing months of coat-flicking, belly-cupping “look at my bump” immediately followed by “don’t look at my baby” secrecy surrounding anything concerning Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor; more recently, we’ve had the "Ten Commandments" / "Thou Shalt Nots" for Windsor Estate residents should they encounter the Duke or Duchess out walking their dogs.

Bubbling under, we have the £2.4million refurb for Frogmore Cottage syphoned from public funds - and the news that it still wasn't enough to satisfy their tastes.
The cherry on top has to be the £million worth of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories Meghan has flaunted day in day out, rubbing everyone's faces in obscene wealth in a country where nurses are having to turn to food banks in order to stay alive.
This is not 'racism', Harry. This is revulsion.
Learn the difference.
