Witness recounts black charity founder 'interrogation' by royal household member

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Witness recounts black charity founder ‘interrogation’ by royal household member” – below is their description.

Charity founder Ngozi Fulani was ‘interrogated’ by the royal household member who later resigned and apologised, Mandu Reid, who was also at the event as the leader of  the Women’s Equality party, told Sky News.

The late queen’s lady-in-waiting, Susan Hussey, left her post after a black guest at a reception hosted by the queen consort was left feeling traumatised and violated after she questioned her repeatedly about where she ‘really came from’.

Fulani, the founder of the charity Sistah Space, claimed Lady Hussey moved her hair to reveal her name badge and persistently questioned her over where her ‘people’ came from, despite having been told she was a British national.

A spokesperson for the Prince of Wales, who is Hussey’s godson, said the comments were unacceptable and that ‘racism has no place in our society’
