Buckingham Palace Staff Member Resigns Over Remarks to Black Guest

When Ms. Fulani finally answered that her parents had immigrated to Britain in the 1950s, she said, the woman exclaimed, “I knew we’d get there in the end, you’re Caribbean!”

Ms. Fulani said she then pushed back, telling the woman she was of “African heritage, Caribbean descent, and British nationality.”

Dismissing Ms. Hussey is a difficult move for Charles, given her long association with his mother, who died in September. She rode in the car with the queen at the funeral of Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, in 2021. Ms. Hussey was considered the queen’s most senior lady-in-waiting, with the formal title of woman-of-the-bedchamber.

She also has close ties to the king and queen consort through her daughter, Kathrine Brooke, who was recently named by Camilla as one of six “companions,” an updated title for ladies-in-waiting.

Ms. Hussey’s late husband, Marmaduke, was chairman of the BBC at the time that it aired a celebrated interview of Princess Diana about her broken marriage to Charles. He opposed the decision to broadcast it.

Despite all these links, Mr. Hunt said the palace may have acted so quickly because William and his wife, Princess Catherine, are traveling to Boston this week to present awards given out by the Earthshot Prize, an organization founded by William to help entrepreneurs with solutions to climate change and environmental issues.

It is the first visit to the United States in eight years by the new prince and princess of Wales, and it may include a meeting with President Biden in Boston on Friday, where Mr. Biden is scheduled to attend fund-raisers.
