Prince William received criticism for issuing a rare statement on the Israel-Hamas conflict that broke with the late Queen Elizabeth’s tradition of staying out of politics.

William called for an end to hostilities and increased humanitarian aid to Gaza, saying “too many have been killed.”

Prince William wrote, “I remain deeply concerned about the terrible human cost of the conflict in the Middle East since the Hamas terrorist attack on 7 October. Too many have been killed.”

“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,” his statement continued.

“Sometimes it is only when faced with the sheer scale of human suffering that the importance of permanent peace is brought home.” explained William.

Adding, “Even in the darkest hour, we must not succumb to the counsel of despair. I continue to cling to the hope that a brighter future can be found and I refuse to give up on that.”

Critics argued he should have followed the Queen’s example and avoided politics.

“Stay out of politics. Dress appropriately. Can’t do either smh,” posted a social media critic.

Others took issue with him prioritizing the release of hostages along with ending the war.

Some commented he should stand for office if wanting to engage in politics, as people did not vote for him.

“Very telling: ‘It’s critical that aid gets in and the hostages get out.’ Notice the priority. Do not think this is by accident or an oversight. Every single word here will have been agonised over,” commented another user.

“If Prince William wants to get involved with politics let him stand for office. I certainly didn’t vote for him,” added a third X user.

Israel responded it would stop fighting once all hostages were released and Hamas destroyed.

The statement highlighted tensions over royal family members weighing in on global political issues.
