The Royal Family has come under fire from Prince Harry for allegedly neglecting to stand up for his wife Meghan Markle in the row over a Jeremy Clarkson newspaper piece.
He compared this to the prompt response that had been given following a race dispute at a Buckingham Palace banquet.
Additionally, Prince Harry stated that he did not think that remarks made regarding the skin tone of his kid by an unnamed royal were racist.
In the Clarkson piece about Meghan, the columnist was quoted as “dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant ‘Shame!’ and throw lumps of excrement at her.”
The Sun later removed it, with an apology from the publication.
In response to the harm he did, Mr. Clarkson stated he was “horrified.”
Prince Harry referred to the piece as “horrific and hurtful and cruel towards my wife”.
“The world is asking for some form of comment from the monarchy. But the silence is deafening. To put it mildly,” the prince said.
Because of links between “some members of the family and the tabloid press,” Prince Harry charged that the Royal Family had “gotten into bed with the devil” in order to boost its reputation.
The prince compared the absence of a royal response to the piece with the events surrounding a meeting between Lady Susan Hussey and Ngozi Fulani that took place at Buckingham Palace just three weeks before.
During an occasion, Lady Hussey repeatedly questioned Ms. Fulani, the founder of a black charity in the UK, about where she was “truly from.”
Ms. Fulani reported that the exchange had hurt her feelings, which prompted the Palace to quickly apologise.
The Palace called the comments “unacceptable and deeply regrettable” in a statement.
Consequently, Lady Hussey gave up her title as a lady of the household.
