Black British woman speaks on Prince Harry&Megan

23 minutes

I spoke with a Black woman from London who is vising Charlotte the other day about what black people in great Britan are saying about Prince Harry and Meagan Markle leaving the Royal family...Was it that she could not take the racism anymore? We spoke with Kate Jegede and got an interesting twist that you have never heard.

LONDON — When Prince Harry and Meghan announced this week that they would be stepping back from their royal duties and spending extensive time in North America, many of Britain’s minority residents said they felt a burst of relief.

At long last, many said in interviews, the couple might finally escape the abuse, much of it racially tinged, that has been heaped upon them by the British press, particularly the country’s raucous tabloids.

“Thank God they are free,” said Sanaa Edness, lifting her arms to the sky as she walked through Fordham Park in southeast London. “Nobody should tolerate bullying and abusive behavior because of the color of their skin. All of this is about her race. I know it because as a Caribbean woman who did not grow up here, I have experienced it myself.”
