The Diversity Advisor will assist the royal family in approaching diversity issues. The decision from Buckingham Palace was made after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

What We Know:

  • In Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s talk with Winfrey, they mentioned that certain members of the Windsor family had concerns about their son Archie’s skin color while Markle was pregnant. They also claimed that racism was a major factor for renouncing their duties as Duke and Duchess. After the interview aired, members of the royal family began “crisis talks” to handle the backlash.
  • On Sunday, March 21, it was reported that Buckingham Palace would hire a diversity advisor. Anonymous sources told the Daily Mail that the diversity policies in effect for the royal family had not produced enough progress. Queen Elizabeth II may also employ a diversity czar in the future to spearhead the project.
  • The proposal will not only focus on tackling systemic racism but also on representing the disabled and LGBT community. Aides from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace will partake in “listen and learn” exercises from independent experts. The authorities will seek out innovative ideas to fix representation from the monarchy members. They will also be using their charities and patronages to enforce some solutions.
  • According to thegrio, the Queen has not been held so accountable to public opinion since the death of Princess Diana. Due to this, she has realized someone must assist the Windsor house on the topic of race.
  • The revelations from the former Duke and Duchess have made the family even more divided. In his discussion with Winfrey, Harry said his father, Prince Charles, initially stopped answering his phone calls. Gayle King also reported that Harry had a post-interview conversation with his brother, Prince William, that was “not productive.” However, both parties were glad to begin one at least.

Family members have claimed that recollections of Archie’s complexion vary. Prince William has also denied the allegations, stating that they “were not a racist family.” The Sussexes, as of late, have not responded to the Queen’s actions.
