UK defends royals after race row and Harry documentary

LONDON: The British government rallied to the defense of the embattled royal family on Sunday after a new racist row and an explosive documentary on Netflix.
After recent trips abroad, Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said he would catch up on Netflix hit ‘Stranger Things’ first in preference to Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s tell-all program.
But he stressed there was no stronger supporter of a multicultural Britain than King Charles III, Harry’s father.
“And I think the attitude of the Royal Family towards this country reflects the modern country that we see,” Cleverly told Sky News.
“It’s my personal experience. But I also think it’s something the whole world sees when they look at us.”
However, a British charity at the center of the latest royal racism controversy has said it has suspended its work supporting black survivors of domestic abuse, after a torrent of toxic hate.
Sistah Space founder Ngozi Fulani, who is British, was repeatedly questioned at a reception at Buckingham Palace on November 29 where she was “really” from.
Since revealing the exchange with Susan Hussey, 83, godmother to Harry’s brother Prince William, Fulani has been the target of what she called “horrible” racial slurs online.
In a statement Friday evening, she said that as a result, Sistah Space had been “forced to temporarily cease” many of its operations to protect customers and staff.
Lady Hussey resigned from her role as palace courtier after the row, and Prince William’s spokesman condemned the Fulani’s questioning as “unacceptable”.
But it has reignited attacks on the Royal Family in the days before Harry and Meghan aired new accusations of racial bias in their Netflix docuseries last week.
