PRINCE William has slammed his godmother after she resigned following an alleged race storm at Buckingham Palace.
The Duke of Cambridge said the ordeal was “really disappointing” and that is was “direito” Lady Susan Hussey had stepped down.
William disse: “I was really disappointed to hear about the guests experience at Buckingham Palace last night.
“Obviamente, I wasn’t there, but racism has no place in our society.
“The comments were unacceptable, and it is right that the individual has stepped aside with immediate effect.”
William’s spokesperson made the comments in the US ahead of a visit by the Royal and Princess Kate.
Ngozi, who was born in Britain, attended the event on behalf of domestic abuse charity Sistah Space to mark the UN’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.
She said she was horrified when Lady Susan approached her, moved her hair to see her name badge and asked: “Where do your people come from?”
The employee repeatedly questioned what part of Africa she was from and when she first came to the UK, Ngozi claims.

"Enquanto isso, the individual concerned would like to express her profound apologies for the hurt caused and has stepped aside from her honorary role with immediate effect.
“All members of the Household are being reminded of the diversity and inclusivity policies which they are required to uphold at all times.”
Ngozi has slammed the Palace ordeal and said she wanted to leave after being made to feel “very unwelcome”.
Ela disse ao Espelho: “[What she did] was racism. Through and through. It was prolonged racism.
“The fact that it was just done in the open in front of people, on a day when we should be working towards violence against women.”
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
The campaigner said she felt “attacked” but did not wish anyone to lose their job.
