Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have called to an end to structural racism in the United Kingdom.

The Duke of Sussex - who has 16-month-old son Archie with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex - admits he wasn't even "aware" of all the issues faced across both Britain and the rest of the world.

He said: "I wasn't aware of so many of the issues and so many of the problems within the UK and also globally as well.

“I thought I did but I didn't ... You know, when you go in to a shop with your children and you only see white dolls, do you even think, 'That's weird, there is not a black doll there?'

“And I use that as just one example of where we as white people don't always have the awareness of what it must be like for someone else of a different coloured skin, of a black skin, to be in the same situation as we are where the world that we know has been created by white people for white people."

And Prince Harry insists it is not about "blame" but is more about a need to "learn" and make the world a better place.

Speaking on a Zoom call to the Evening Standard newspaper, he added: "It is not about pointing the finger, it is not about blame.

“I will be the first person to say, again, this is about learning. And about how we can make it better.

“I think it is a really exciting time in British culture and British history, and in world culture.

“This is a real moment that we should be grasping and actually celebrating. Because no one else has managed to do this before us."
