Prince William Breaks Royal Silence: Calls for Peace in Gaza Crisis

In a rare moment, a member of the royal family makes a direct intervention when it comes to the ongoing genocide in Gaza. The UK’s Prince William, heir to the British throne, spoke up for the people of Gaza and made an official statement.


On Tuesday, he called for an end to the fighting in Gaza, saying “I, like so many others, want to see an end to the fighting as soon as possible. There is a desperate need for increased humanitarian support to Gaza. It’s critical that aid gets in and the hostages are released.”

Having Prince William speak up is a rarity, as the British royal family usually keeps themselves out of politics and usually avoids intervening in political affairs. The Prince not only made a statement, he also took part in a video call with the Red Cross staff in Gaza who updated him on their work.

During the call, the Prince learned that hospitals are at risk of “becoming a cemetery” as long as there are no medical supplies and fuel. Even when humanitarian aid arrives, it gets looted by what senior crisis manager Pascal Hundt refers to as “hungry mobs.”

Beyond that, the prince will also be taking part in several visits throughout the month related to the ongoing genocide.

He notices the severity of the genocide, and that’s why in his statement, he also made another major remark about peace, “sometimes it is only when faced with the sheer scale of human suffering that the importance of permanent peace is brought home,” and that “even in the darkest hour we must not succumb to the counsel of despair.”
