Prince William branded woke by historian following Charles Rwanda comments

Prince William has been mockingly branded "William the Woke" by historian David Starkey.

In a GB News interview, the TV presenter also shared his belief that the Duke of Cambridge – second in line to the throne after his father Prince Charles – might be the person that brings an end to the monarchy.

Starkey expressed his views while speaking to GB News presenter Mark Steyn about the Prince of Wales' criticism of the Government's decision to send migrants to Rwanda.

That disapproval was expressed at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, where Charles was representing the Queen.

It led to Starkey to speculate on the future of the Royal Family under William with the former Cambridge University graduate declaring: "I've decided to christen him William the Woke, so we can have the notion of the monarchy beginning with William the Conqueror and ending with William the Woke."

William's sister-in-law Meghan Marklewas also recently criticised for her supposed "wokeness" after reports emerged that the Duchess of Sussex was planning to protest in Washington DC against the overturning of the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling that granted women and girls the right to an abortion.

Republicans subsequently laid into Meghan for trying to "insert British drama" into American politics after she spoke to activist Gloria Steinem for Vogue magazine and urged people to vote in the November midterm elections.

Sceptical Republican Lisa McClain said: "This is just another attempt from the ex-royals to insert their British drama in American politics. I don’t think anyone on this side of the pond cares for Meghan Markle's opinion on killing babies. However, I think her running for President would be a great episode for The Crown."

Prince Harry will, no doubt, also draw criticism from similar quarters after his wife Meghan described him as "feminist".

In the Vogue interview, the Duchess of Sussex said Harry's reaction to the Supreme Court's abortion U-turn was "guttural", before adding: "My husband and I talked about that a lot over the past few days. He's a feminist too."

The Daily Star has approached the Duke of Cambridge for comment.
