‘Prince William and Kate Middleton flying into a perfect storm’

Prince William and Kate Middleton are flying into a perfect storm, said Publicist Mark Borkowski after Lady Sussan quit over racist remarks.

The expert said the remarks by William’s godmother are a disaster for him and Kate as they visit the US.

William backed Lady Susan Hussey’s decision to step down from the royal household after she allegedly refused to believe a black activist Ngozi Fulani was British and asked her: ‘What part of Africa are you from?’

“This is a PR disaster for the Royal Family and it is going to cause huge problems, especially at the start of William and Kate’s US trip which will be dominated by a new racism row. They are flying into a perfect storm,” he told MailOnline.

Prince William and wife Kate began their first visit to America in eight years Wednesday under the cloud of a fresh racism row after his godmother quit the royal household for repeatedly asking a Black British woman where she was “really” from.

The Prince and Princess of Wales met Boston mayor Michelle Wu and governor-elect Maura Healey at the city hall and then sat courtside at a Boston Celtics versus Miami Heat NBA game as they kickstarted their three-day trip focused on climate change.

The beginning of the visit — which comes after racism claims from William’s brother Harry and mixed-race sister-in-law, Meghan — was however overshadowed by the resignation and apology of 83-year-old Susan Hussey, one of William’s six godmothers.
