Lady Susan Hussey ‘will be invited to King Charles’ coronation’ despite race line

Lady Susan Hussey would be invited to King Charles’ coronation despite her racing line.

The invite is said to have been booked after the late Queen’s former friend apologized to a charity official who accused her of ‘racist abuse’ for asking where she was ‘really’ coming from at a royal reception.

A source told the Sunday Mirror that 83-year-old Lady Susan – who served the late Queen for more than six decades and is godmother to Prince William – was on the guest list for the May 6 coronation, but the invitations have not yet been issued. sent.

An insider told the newspaper: “Lady Susan has received private support from friends following what happened. Some have politely asked for the suggestion that Lady Susan should be welcome at the coronation.

“It was highlighted the many years of service and duty she entrusted to the Queen, to whom she was a faithful confidante. With relations now calm between Buckingham Palace and Mrs Fulani, the King is now able to invite Lady Susan.

Around 2,000 guests are expected at Charles’ two-hour coronation in Westminster, which is expected to be one of the most-watched TV events of 2023.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also expected to be guests despite their Netflix series ‘Harry and Meghan’ making a series of claims about the Royal Family, including that they suffer from ‘unconscious’ racial bias.

Lady Susan stepped down from her role as royal aide after asking Ngozi Fulani at a reception in November: “Where are you really from?”

It caused an uproar after Ngozi, 57, tweeted that she had been asked about her nationality, with Buckingham Palace and the Prince of Wales issuing statements.

The Palace said in a statement on December 16 that the couple had met for the first time since the controversy: “At this meeting, filled with warmth and understanding, Lady Susan offered her sincere apologies to him for the comments which were made and the distress they caused Ms. Fulani.

“Lady Susan is committed to deepening her awareness of the sensitivities involved and is grateful to have the opportunity to learn more about the issues in this area.”
