After Meghan Markle’s racism claims, Queen Elizabeth considers appointing someone to “spearhead” diversity and inclusion work. The palace may appoint a “Diversity Officer” to promote greater diversity and inclusion at the palace.
A program called “listening and learning” is going on inside the royal household. The appointment would be part of this ongoing program. It is anticipated that after Meghan Markle’s claims of racism within the royal family, the palace is decided to appoint someone for this position. It seems that the British royal authority is interested to work on diversity and also realizes that “more needs to be done”.
In the widely-discussed interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex mentioned racism within the royal family. She said, “concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born.”
After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview, Buckingham Palace shared a statement on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. That statement addressed the issue of racism. The Buckingham Palace responded, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.”
The statement continued, “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning….While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. The statement also added, “Harry, Meghan, and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
