Prince William Said *This* to a Royal Fan Who Told Him to ‘Keep Going’ After Prince Harry’s Memoir Release

Despite all of the explosive controversy surrounding the royals amid Prince Harry’s memoir release, there are still some fans who have nothing but supportive wishes for the family.

Earlier this week, Prince William and Kate Middleton traveled to Merseyside in Northwest England to attend the grand opening of The Royal Liverpool University Hospital. This royal engagement marked the first time the couple has been seen out in public following the release of the book, where the Duke of Sussex tells never-before-heard stories about members of the royal family.

According to Hello! Magazine, the Prince and Princess of Wales smiled and waved at royal admirers who stood outside of the hospital. When the couple was inside the facility, William was greeted by a patient named Sylvia Staniford. 

The 81-year-old woman had a chance to shake the prince’s hand and wanted to give him words of encouragement in light of the controversy. “Keep going, keep going. Scousers love you,” Staniford apparently said to the prince. And William smiled and said, “Yes, I will.” 

Also per the report, Staniford added later that, “Of course, that was a reference to Harry. He knew what I was talking about.”

In the memoir, Harry shares shocking details about himself and his brother regarding their strained relationship. He even discusses their shared grief over mourning their late mother, Princess Diana. Since the arrival of Spare, William and Princess Catherine have not released a public statement regarding the many allegations.

It seems some royal fans are sticking by Prince William and Princess Catherine even in the face of family drama.
