I doubt you would get a personal statement from William and Catherine like we have from Meghan.

That statement is inadequate. Plain and simple.

No I don't, expect them to make the kind of personal statement that Meghan did- they simply could not relate and have ZERO personal experience with racism and prejudice.

However, the could release a statement or do a video message saying that they support the BLM movement, have solidarity, and/or condemn racism and prejudice in all sorts.

The movement and protest has moved well beyond American soil. Thousands of people have been protesting and marching all over London.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/t...death-n1223866

Even the Mayor of London released a detail statement as well as a video message.

Given Britain's longstanding history of racism and prejudice against black Britons as well as the fact the vast majority of commonwealth citizens are black, it behooves someone or even multiple members of the royal family to speak up. They simply cannot stay silent.

It's literally their job to stay silent.

That lame excuse has kept this family's heads on their shoulders and the Crown on their heads while Europe's monarchies have crumbled and fallen in bloodshed over the centuries.

It will continue to do so whether the excuse "flies" with people in sovereign nations overseas whose support of them or their leadership style is utterly inconsequential.

But like... it's not an excuse? The BRF is probably doing what the government wants them to do - which is to stay silent. That's their job and the principle of their existence as the Royal Family. Tbh, their patronages posting statements on Twitter is definitely more than I expected and I think it's in that good spot of showing support while not doing so directly.

I know this movement is so important to many people around the globe and I truly, from the bottom of my heart wish that current protests will bring a positive change. At the same time I don't think BRF should do anything more, I definitely don't want to see either Charles or William saying even one word. This is not how the monarchy works, this is not how this monarchy survives.

Its simple. When you think of the British Royal Family as representing and in service to *all* the people, you realize that *all* the people do not think alike nor do they *all* believe in the same things. The British Royal Family represents those aspects that *all* the people do have in common and that is to be British citizens or members of the Commonwealth of Nations.

The United States of America's flag does the same thing for *all* American citizens.

This is not strictly a US issue it is a global issue. I am sure Black Britons themselves who face racial injustice does not think the movement and protests and the "enough is enough" it to be inconsequential

As I mentioned in my previous post , people are protesting and marching *in the UK*, organizations and corporations are speaking out *in the UK* , UK government officials (such as the Mayor of London) are making statements, and the Royal Family is silent. Not good!

Now, the royal family may stay silent on political issues like Brexit or issues that are strictly Tory v Labor.
However, they have not remained silent on issues that are basic human rights issues or issues that affect ALL Britons or subjects of the commonwealth. The issue of racial injustice is one of them.

Consider the following examples:

We need everyone, male and female, to support this mission. If we make greater strides towards achieving better parity, then we all stand to win
- Countess of Wessex last year on Gender Equality

Both here in the UK and in many other countries around the world, we are lucky to have incredible film-makers, actors, producers and technicians, men and women of all backgrounds and ethnicities enriching our lives through
Yet in 2020, and not for the first time in the last few years, we find ourselves talking again about the need to do more about diversity in the sector and in the awards process. That simply cannot be right in this day and age.


- The Duke of Cambridge at last year's BAFTA
in regards to the lack of diversity amongst the nominees

-In 2018, Harry & Meghan attended a memorial service for Stephen Lawrence who was murdered in a racially motivated hate crime. There a statement from Prince Charles was read where the PoW
Prince Harry read a moving tribute to Stephen Lawrence by his father Charles who said he 'remembers vividly the senseless murder' of the London teenager 25 years ago.

The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has granted nearly 1.8 million in supporting the frontline community and the nation’s mental health, through a bespoke fund which was set up as part of the organisation’s response to COVID-19.

Quote:
Together, the grants made through the COVID-19 Response Fund ensure that:
  • All emergency responders will have access to individual grief trauma counselling from Hospice UK;
  • Over 250,000 emergency responders will have access to peer-to-peer support through Mind’s Blue Light programme;
  • The Ambulance Staff Charity will be able to provide an additional 2,780 hours of support for the UK’s ambulance community;
  • Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) will be able to respond to 2,300 more contacts each month;
  • Shout 85258 will be able to have 250 more text message conversations with people who are struggling to cope every day;
  • The Mix will expand their group chat service for young people to seven days per week;
  • Teachers, children and their parents will be supported to cope with mental health needs, including self-care and managing anxiety as schools re-open, thanks to training and resources from Place2Be and The Anna Freud Centre; and
  • An additional 20,000 new mothers will be supported by Best Beginnings, thanks to a community mental health training project to reach pregnant women and new parents.
Funding will also build the capacity of the Heads Together partners as they work together on campaigning activity to directly address the nation’s mental health as the population adjusts to life after COVID-19.
