A member of the British royal family resigned on Wednesday after making “unacceptable and deeply regrettable” comments about race and nationality to a black woman during an event at Buckingham Palace.
A former aide to the late Queen Elizabeth II has quit and apologized after repeatedly asking British-born charity CEO Ngozi Fulani where she was “really” from.
She wrote on Twitter that the royal aide had repeatedly asked her: “Which part of Africa are you from?” when she attended an event hosted by King Charles’ wife, Camilla, the Queen Consort, on Tuesday.
“We take this incident very seriously and immediately investigated to establish full details,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
“In this case, unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments have been made,” he added.
The news came as the Prince and Princess of Wales embarked on their first visit to the United States in eight years. On Wednesday evening, the royal couple were spotted on the court at an NBA basketball game in Massachusetts.
