Royal Family News: Lady Susan Hussey Debacle Is ‘Not Shocking’ According To Royal Experts
British Royal Family News says that a lot of people believe that the Lady Susan Hussey debacle that occurred earlier this month at a reception at Buckingham Palace is not shocking to say the least, especially when it comes to the monarchy’s problem with racism. Here’s what you need to know.
Royal Family News – Lady Susan Hussey Debacle Is ‘Not Shocking’ According To Royal Experts
Prominent black advocate for survivors of domestic abuse Ngozi Fulani, says that she felt violated during her conversation with Lady Susan. Apparently, she was repeatedly asked where she “really came from,” by Prince William’s Godmother. This, despite the fact that Fulani was born and raised in Britain. Fulani said she felt challenged by Lady Susan when she repeatedly asked her: “No, what part of Africa are you from?”
Omid Scobie, who often writes about the royal family in his column for Yahoo, put it this way, “The encounter was appalling but, sadly, didn’t shock many. The relationship between royals and racial sensitivity is similar to that of oil and water. Diversity at royal events sounds great, but does it work if the people there aren’t equipped to deal with it?”
Scobie also pointed out that there was some fault in the way that the palace handled the situation from behind the scenes. He said that it was more about optics and not humanity. Scobie put it this way, “[Many] believe that the palace’s reaction was more likely an attempt at protecting Prince William’s long-planned trip to Boston for his Earthshot Prize ceremony — his first big overseas trip since the disaster that was his March tour of the Caribbean. But the palace’s rush to claim they reached out to Ngozi, who over a day later claims she was yet to hear a word from anyone, is a sign that the Palace may have just been thinking about optics, not humanity.”
