Buckingham Palace has admitted it needs to do more to promote staff diversity in the wake of Harry and Meghan's claims of racism within the Royal Family.

For the first time, officials yesterday unveiled figures showing how many staff are from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.

Just 8.5 per cent of those working for the Queen come from ethnic minority backgrounds, while the figure is 8 per cent at Clarence House, where the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall live.

This compares with 13 per cent of the UK, according to the 2011 census.

A senior Buckingham Palace source openly admitted it 'must do more' and is 'not where it would like to be' in terms of diversity.

It has set a target of 10 per cent for 2022.

The Palace's decision to voluntarily reveal its figures comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sensationally accused Royal Family members and the monarchy of racism in their Oprah Winfrey interview in March.

Meghan accused a senior royal of expressing 'concern' about the colour of her baby's skin. Harry also claimed racism was a 'large part' of why the couple left Britain.

The Queen issued a statement at the time saying: '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 Queen's household brought in a change to its diversity strategy in early 2020, before the Oprah interview, to emphasise inclusion.

A senior aide at Clarence House said they also accepted they needed to do more on the issue of diversity. Kensington Palace did not publish its figures.

Na so.

The difference between Racism in America and the UK is that in America, it is widely agreed that there is Systemic racism.

But in the UK, they sweep it under the rug and act like it doesn't exist.

Racism is not leaving us anytime soon. Infact, it comes in different shades. In almost all the matches in Europe, they display all forms of "Say no to Racism" awareness campaign yet fans taunt black players and abuse them even on social media. Even England, with all the knees they take in stadium before matches. If Raheem Sterling scores, the white fans will praise and embrace him, if he misses, they abuse him racially. Tribalism is even worse than racism because it involves people of the same skin color. I will not want to go into religious divide and killings because of religious sentiments.

post this good deal on FreeStuffsNG ,you could get sanctioned for posting it here. I honestly don't believe they were not aware all along. These guys are very good with record keeping. I think they owe the apology and probably compensation to those they have denied the employment opportunity because of their race.

I also support it that if there’s no white man in Africa royal heritage, then they’re on point for not wanting a black origin in their heritage..

It wasn't this way b4. The North has only chosen to remain backwards and now they seem like excess baggage bt... proper national reforms can balance or correct this anomaly and probable injustice.
