Prince William is getting Sussex fan rage after he makes inconsiderate comments on Ukraine war.The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Holland Park, west London, this week and talked to volunteers about the ongoing crisis.
William confessed the war is unusual for British people, who have often seen conflicts in Africa and Asia, not Europe.“It’s very alien to see this in Europe. We are all behind you,” he said. “We feel so useless,” added the couple, ashamed of not being able to help more.
While Wills might have meant well, his comments have not been well-received by Meghan Markle fans, dubbing him tone deaf.One fan said he was “unsurprised” to see the backlash against Prince William’s “ignorant remark.”
Another added: “Prince William’s own mother visited Bosnia in 1997, shortly before her death. Are you telling me he wasn’t aware of the war and genocide that was raging on at that time?”
A third commented: “Prince William’s comments are deeply offensive. He must apologise.”The Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association jumped the bandwagon.”It dehumanises and renders their experience with war as somehow normal and expected… civilian casualties and displacement in other countries are equally as abhorrent as they are in Ukraine.”
William went on to add how his kids, Princess George and Princess Charlotte are equally worried about the war.“Ours have been coming home asking all about it,” the duke says of his kids. “They are obviously talking about it with their friends at school.”
