Duke of Cambridge, Prince William Condemns slavery as “abhorrent”


Duke of Cambridge, Prince William last night, condemned slavery as “abhorrent” but failed to offer the apology that many in Jamaica, have been calling for.

The remarks on slavery came a day after protesters gathered at the British High Commission in Kingston calling for reparations and an apology from the British Monarchy for the atrocities associated with the Trans-Atlantic trade in enslaved Africans.

Speaking at a dinner party at the Governor General’s residence, William noted that the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade is being observed this week.

He said he strongly agrees with his father, who said in Barbados last year, that the appalling atrocity of slavery forever stains British history.
