A royal aide has resigned and apologised after a black guest, Ngozi Fulani, at a reception hosted by the queen consort, Camilla, shared racist comments she said to her on Twitter.
Fulani, the founder of the charity Sistah Space, claimed Susan Hussey moved her hair to reveal her name badge and persistently questioned her over where her “people” came from, despite having been told she was a British national.
Buckingham Palace described the remarks as “unacceptable and deeply regrettable”. Hussey has offered her “profound apologies” for hurt caused and resigned her honorary position with immediate effect, reports Guardian UK.
British media have identified the aide as Lady Susan Hussey, the 83-year-old godmother of Charles’s son and heir Prince William. Hussey was also a lady-in-waiting to the late UK monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
