Prince William is facing a ‘disaster’ back home in the UK after his godmother was accused of making racist remarks at a Buckingham Palace event, as per a royal expert.
The Prince of Wales, and wife Kate Middleton, kicked off their first US trip in eight years for the Earthshot Prize on Wednesday, November 30, just as news of Lady Susan Hussey being accused of racism broke.
Lady Hussey subsequently resigned, and Prince William was also forced to issue an official statement, but royal commentator Jennie Bond thinks the issue is far from over for the Prince of Wales.
Talking to GB News, Bond revealed that she had met Lady Hussey many times, and that she always found her to be ‘very kind’.
“I've always found her to be courteous and to be kind. But clearly this is a disaster. This was a showcase event at Buckingham Palace about violence against women, and a woman who was invited to be there to celebrate the work that she has done has been made to feel violated,” Bond said.
She went on to reiterate, saying: “It is an absolute disaster and inexcusable as the palace has made clear.”
This comes as Prince William’s US trip is already being tipped to be a ‘disaster’, with the Lady Hussey race scandal closely followed by the release of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s trailer for their Netflix docuseries.
