Prince William and Kate Middleton put on a united front for a joint appearance amid more controversy surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Oprah interview.

On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out at an ambulance station in east London to speak to staff about the challenges of working during the coronavirus pandemic. Both opted for sleek coordinated looks, with Prince William wearing a button-up shirt under a blue sweater and a coat, while Kate wore a camel coat over a matching turtleneck, paired with a matching handbag.

People notes that the couple spent the morning speaking to paramedics about how they have been coping with the pressure of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this week a source told Entertainment Tonight that William is "deeply distressed with Harry and Meghan's decision to share private family conversations" with Gayle King, who has said she spoke to the Sussexes after their Oprah interview. 

King had revealed on CBS This Morning that Prince Harry had spoken to both his brother, Prince William, and father, Prince Charles, since the couple's interview aired, and that the conversations "were not productive." The host also said that none of the royals had reached out to Meghan directly yet.

"I think it's frustrating for them to see that it's a racial conversation about the royal family when all they wanted all along was for the royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant," King said.

After the interview aired, Prince William responded to a reporter asking whether the royal family was racist, telling them, "we're very much not a racist family."
