Prince Harry insists it will take 'every single person on the planet' to defeat racism

The Duke of Sussex insists it would take 'every single person on the planet' to defeat racism in a candid new virtual interview for a civil rights organisation. 

Prince Harry, 35, who is currently living in Tyler Perry's $14 million mansion in Beverly Hills with Meghan Markle, 38, and their son Archie, one, having stepped back from royal duty in March, is set to speak about the topic in a new interview for the Colour of Change initiative.

In a clip released of the interview on Instagram, Prince Harry praised the younger generation for 'acting, rather than just saying'.

Speaking with US civil rights leader Rashad Robinson, the royal continued: 'As we've discussed before, it is going to take every single one of us, this is not just down to the black community, it's going to take every single person on the planet right now.'

His comments come as the authors of the couple's upcoming biography Finding Freedom claimed Meghan helped guide Prince Harry on his very public 'woke' journey. 

The clip of the interview was shared over the weekend online, with the caption seemingly including a quote from Prince Harry: ''“Inequality is not unfortunate like a car accident, it has been manufactured”.

The caption continued: 'Prince Harry and @iamrashadrobinson talked candidly about systemic racism, hate online and people with privilege, using their privilege for change. 

'Here’s a sneak peek at what happened. Stay tuned for the full convo #ComingSoon!' 

In the clip, Rashard said: 'Part of this work, part of this moment that we're in, is that making sure from analysis to action that we drive action toward structural and systemic change. Changing the rules that have held people back.'
