Buckingham Palace to appoint ‘diversity tsar’ in response to Harry and Meghan revelations

Queen Elizabeth II anticipates a long and hard fight ahead with the estranged Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Less than two weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell revelations about deeply-ingrained racism in the royal family, Buckingham Palace has seen fit to launch a diversity review.

According to the Mail on Sunday (March 20), the Queen is expected to appoint a “diversity tsar” with a view to modernizing the monarchy.

Sources close to Buckingham Palace have told the Mail on Sunday the Queen acknowledges that “more needs to be done” to advance “minorities’ rights” in the light of revelations by Harry and Meghan Markle about institutional racism at the heart of the royal family.

The so-called diversity tsar will have powers to review diversity policies across all royal households, but with a particular focus on Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace.

The process will reportedly involve seeking out “independent views” to “assess and improve” the royal family’s “approach to diversity”, including attitudes on ethnic minorities, the disabled and the gay and transsexual communities.

However, there is little doubt that the focus will be on racism as that was the main charge leveled at the royal family by the estranged Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Queen’s decision to order a diversity review will inevitably fuel speculation that she anticipates Harry and Meghan to escalate their campaign against the royal family.
