Many front pages lead with Lady Susan Hussey’s resignation as a royal aide. The Daily Mail describes the incident as “a new Palace race storm”. It says the black British charity boss, Ngozi Fulani, felt “violated” after being “interrogated” by Prince William’s godmother about where she came from. The paper runs what it calls “the inside story” of how Lady Susan’s 60 years of royal service ended in five hours. It quotes a royal insider who claims she was “thrown under the bus”.
The Daily Mirror headline reads: “Shame of royal aide”. It reports that the Palace said it had reached out to Ms Fulani through her East London charity, Sistah Space, but last night she claimed she had heard nothing. The Daily Express says Prince William has condemned the comments, but that the row has “overshadowed” his trip to the United States. It quotes Ms Fulani, who accuses the Palace of institutional racism and calls on officials to implement anti-racism training.
