In the latest news surrounding Buckingham Palace and the Royal Family, the palace is currently considering appointing a diversity chief.
According to the royal expert and journalist Afua Dom, this role is to examine the processes in the palace in terms of how they deal with issues of diversity such as LGBTQ2, race and employment of people with disabilities.
“Buckingham Palace has apparently been conducting a review in the past few weeks and has found that not enough has been done to address diversity within Buckingham Palace as well as Kensington Palace and a few other royal households,” Adom said.
Adom recently says Gayle King of CBS this morning showed that the talks between Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Prince William were unproductive after the interview with Oprah Winfrey, but hope the talks will continue.
“It was also said that (King) said no one had spoken to Meghan and no one had tried to reach her, so I wonder if Harry is the point of contact at the moment. He’s someone trying to bridge build, ”says Adom.
In July, the Princess Diana memorial is slated to be unveiled on her 60th birthday, Adom says, adding that it’s a project Prince Harry and William both worked on and there could then be some reconciliation between the two give.
“I think the talks will continue in private. I don’t think we’re necessarily going to hear all about her from Gayle King or anyone else. I think we can expect to see Harry and William both at this memorial in July. “
Regarding the Daily Express’s low polls for Prince Harry and Markle, Adom says that if there were general elections they would not win them, and the interview with Oprah was very polarizing.
“If you were [on] Team Meghan before, you are now even more of Team Meghan. If you were [on] Team Royal Family previously, you are hardcore Team Royal Family, ”she says.
“Right now the Queen’s popularity is rising; Harry and Meghan, not so much.”
When it comes to the possibility of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton sitting down for an interview, Adom says because they’re too busy they most likely won’t.
“You are working very hard and you are the new face of the royal family right now. We are not going to see them doing any kind of sitting interview,” she says.
Adom notes that while they would be great to hear from them, the royal family no longer wants to get negatively aware of them.
“The royal family wants to go back to the days when they had the ‘shut up and shut up’ attitude and never talk about yourself,” she says.
“It’s all about the family and the institution they have. It honestly wouldn’t work if Prince William and Kate stepped out of the program and had a different type of celebrity seat interview right now.”
