Buckingham Palace said “unacceptable and deeply regrettable”
Prince William’s godmother resigns honorary royal role after allegation of racism
Buckingham Palace said in a statement last week that an esteemed member of the royal household has stepped down after making “unacceptable and deeply regrettable” comments to a Black guest. Ngozi Fulani, the founder of the nonprofit that aids victims of domestic abuse, allegedly tweeted that she was repeatedly pressed by Lady Susan Hussey about her nationality at a reception last Tuesday hosted by the Camilla, queen consort. Fulani said that the person came up to her 10 minutes after she arrived and “moved my hair to see my name badge” and asked her, “Where do your people come from?” Lady Susan Hussey is Prince William’s godmother and a lady-in-waiting for the late Queen Elizabeth II.

A Canadian anthropologist, Marius Barbeau, stole the pole from the Nisga’a village in 1929 with permission from, what was then called, Indian affairs, but without the consent of the nation.
