Buckingham Palace said in their statement, “The Royal Household and the Sovereign comply with the provisions of the Equality Act, in principle and in practise. This is reflected in the diversity, inclusion and dignity at work policies, procedures and practises within the Royal Household. Any complaints that might be raised under the Act follow a formal process that provides a means of hearing and remedying any complaint.”
Buckingham Palace did not elaborate on what this process entails.
Meghan, who is biracial and has often been the target of racism by tabloids and social media users, made her bombshell accusations about the royal family’s alleged concerns regarding her child, Archie Harrison, a year after she and Harry quit the monarchy. Weeks after their interview with Oprah aired, Harry’s brother Prince William told a reporter, “We are very much not a racist family.” Later that month, the BBC reported that Buckingham Palace was reviewing diversity policies across all royal households.
The Guardian also said the palace said its records showed people from ethnic minority backgrounds being employed in the 1990s. It added that before that decade, it did not keep records on the racial backgrounds of employees.
