Buckingham Palace aide stands down after being accused of racist comments


A  former lady in waiting to Queen Elizabeth, has resigned as a Lady of the Household and apologised, after she made what the palace said were “unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments” by repeatedly asking a prominent Black charity boss where she “really came from”.

Lady Susan Hussey, who’s also godmother to Prince William, made the remarks to Ngozi Fulani at an event in Buckingham palace for a domestic abuse charity.
