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'.
