Queen Elizabeth II and Britain’s royal household support the Black Lives Matter motion, an agent of the queen stated in extracts from a TELEVISION interview released Thursday.
The Windsors have actually been rocked by allegations from Prince Harry and his mixed-race partner Meghan that they dealt with racist remarks from an unnamed royal about the color of their kid prior to he was born.
The Queen’s Lord-Lieutenant, or individual agent, in Greater London, Kenneth Olisa, firmly insisted that the royal household care deeply about the problem in remarks to Channel 4 for a program to be aired Friday.
“I have discussed with the royal household this whole issue of race particularly in the last 12 months since the George Floyd incident,” stated Olisa, who is black, calling this a “hot conversation topic”.
Asked if the palace supports the Black Lives Matter motion, Olisa stated: “The answer is easy yes.”
He stated that the royals “care passionately about making this one nation bound by the same values”.
The most harmful allegation in Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in March this year was that an unnamed royal had actually inquired about the skin color of their then-unborn child.
The Queen reacted with a quick declaration stating that “the issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning” which the household would talk about the matter in personal.
While stating that the household was distressed by Meghan and Harry’s troubles over the last couple of years, she included that “some recollections may vary”.
The just other reaction was from Prince William, who stated that “we’re very much not a racist family”.
Olisa included that the Queen had actually asked his recommendations about whether she need to go to the website of a disastrous fire in London in 2017 where 72 passed away in a tower block, the majority of them Black or Asian or from other ethnic minorities.
“I remember thinking as it all happened, it was quite scary, we didn’t know whether she would be booed or have things thrown at her, etc and when she got out of the car all these people applauded,” Olisa stated.
