William and Kate Boston trip: Latest royal news as Meghan Harry Netflix trailer drops

Lady Susan Hussey asked Ngozi Fulani where she was from ‘7 or 8 times’

Prince William and Kate kicked off the second day of the royal tour on Thursday amid a Royal racism row and the drop of a headline-grabbing trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan’s new Netflix documentary.

The Prince and Princess of Wales arrived at Greentown Labs, the US largest clean-tech incubator in Boston, Massachusetts around 11am.

The couple had landed in Boston on Wednesday, two days ahead of the awards ceremony for the Earthshot Prize, founded by Prince William to inspire a new generation of climate innovators.

But their trip has been overshadowed by a racism scandal which erupted in the UK while they were en-route to Boston.

Prince William’s godmother and palace aide, Lady Susan Hussey, was forced to resign after making offensive remarks to a British charity boss. Ngozi Fulani, of Sistah Space, Britain’s leading domestic abuse charity for Black women, detailed a “traumatic” encounter in which Lady Susan Hussey asked what part of Africa she was from.

Then early on Thursday, Netflix released the first trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan’s exclusive documentary series. Titled Harry and Meghanthe series will stand as their telling of several tumultuous years in the public eye.

Watch: Prince William condemns Lady Hussey’s ‘unacceptable’ comments

Prince William has condemned “unacceptable” comments made by his godmother, Lady Susan Hussey, towards a Black charity boss at a Buckingham Palace reception.

The late Queen’s lady-in-waiting repeatedly asked Ngozi Fulani where she was “really” from in an encounter Ms Fulani said was “an abuse.”

Lady Hussey has since resigned.

“Racism has no place in our society, these comments were unacceptable and it is right that the individual concerned has stepped down,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said.

Black reverend speaks of ‘legacy of colonialism’ at Earthshot opening

The Prince and Princess of Wales touched down in the US on Wednesday morning, kicking off their first foreign trip since the death of Queen Elizabeth II and first visit to the North American country since 2014.

Before the pair had even begun engaging in official duties, however, the trip centered around an Earthshot Prize ceremony became ensnared by a racism scandal involving members of the couple’s family in an incident at Buckingham Palace.

Echoing the tension of that ongoing row were the remarks about colonialism’s lasting legacy made by Rev. Mariama White-Hammond at Boston’s City Hall on Wednesday, said just before Prince William was set to take the stage.

“The ways it has impacted people across the world and its connection, its deep connection to the degradation of land and our planet that we are all seeking to reverse,” Rev White-Hammond, who is Boston’s chief of environment, energy and open space , said.
