Meghan Markle news latest – Fury at new top aide calling all white people RACIST before Prince Harry and Duchess job

A NEW aide to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has sparked fury as past comments branding all white people "racist" emerged.

Genevieve Roth, the Duke and Duchess’ new strategist, last year claimed "all white people are rife with internalised racism" in an article for Good Housekeeping.

“It does not matter how many marches I have planned or how many progressive candidates I have campaigned for or how many times I have chanted Black Lives Matter in the streets: I am rife with internalised racism and unconscious bias," she added.

“And to all of the non-black folks reading this, we need to get clear on something: So are you.”

Roth has also previously revealed she realised her own “unconscious bias” after marrying her black husband, Jordan, saying "As a white woman of privilege, I have racist tendencies written in at a cellular level."

Writing a piece for Australian social enterprise Primer, she said: “As a white American woman, I have too often made the mistake of considering racial injustice as something happening to black people that I needed to empathise with and fight for, instead of understanding it as something that I myself was creating and responsible for.

Her past comments have sparked fury on Twitter, with one user saying her comments are "not a good sign", a second said "you couldn't make it up" while a third branded her remarks "twaddle".

A fourth Twitter user went even further and said "Oh God… I’ve never read such an utter vomit inducing pile of pigswill in my life…"

    MIKE TINDALL: ZARA'S 3RD BABY 'BORN ON FLOOR'

    Speaking on The Good, The Bad and The Rugby about Zara giving birth to their third baby, Mike Tindall said: "Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house! Yeah brilliant, six o'clock last night.

    "8lb 4oz, very bonny. Arrived very quickly, didn't make it to hospital, on the bathroom floor!

    "Fortunately Zara's friend Dolly is, she's actually more important than I am at making sure she's been at all three of my children's births, she was there and recognised that we wouldn't have got to the hospital in time, so it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, towels down, brace brace brace!

    "Fortunately the midwife that was going to meet us at the hospital wasn't that far away so she drove up, got there just as we'd assumed the position, and then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived!"

    ROYAL RUMBLE OVER QUEEN JIBE

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a "particularly dangerous" allegation about the Queen during their bombshell Oprah interview, it has been claimed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex suggested there was a difference between the Queen and the Monarchy itself – but the comments reportedly went "little noticed" by viewers.

    Palace servants at Windsor Castle were left unsettled by the family ructions and allegations made during the Oprah chat, the Mail on Sunday reports.

    And of the many woes circulating at Windsor, the paper's Kate Mansey wrote: "They are also concerned by one particularly dangerous accusation that has, so far, been little-noticed.

    "This was the insinuation by the Sussexes to Oprah that there is some sort of distinction between the Queen – whom they have been at pains to say is blameless – and the institution of Monarchy itself."

    SUSSEXES' POLITICAL AMBITIONS

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been speaking out about politics, urging Americans to vote in the recent US election.

    And earlier this year, it was claimed the duchess could follow prominent actor Arnold Schwarzenegger into politics after holding a secret meeting with a top Democrat.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex risked a row in Britain by spending an hour chatting to the influential California Governor, Gavin Newsom.

    But in California, where the couple are living, politicians are hoping the former actress will follow the “well-worn path” of Arnie into politics.

    At least nine other aides quit their roles when Meghan and Prince Harry were working royals.

    Their PR chief Sara Latham, who worked for Hillary Clinton, also left before being poached by the Queen.

    PRINCE HARRY'S CHIEF OF STAFF 'WANTED OUT'

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's chief of staff "wanted out" after "having to fulfil more work than her job spec", it's been claimed.

    Catherine St-Laurent left a plum job with Bill and Melinda Gates to head up Harry and Meghan’s foundation last April – but it was revealed this week that she had left the post.

    An insiders told The Telegraph that the mum had "wanted out", and that the royal duo "do not have a big team out in LA so it is undoubtedly going to be a blow.”

    One well-placed claimed: “I think there was a sense that she was having to fulfil a great many functions for the couple – not all of which were necessarily in her job spec.

    “Catherine’s very bubbly and has a big personality. She was the bright hope to run their organisation so this is surprising news."

    PRINCE HARRY – 'NO IDEA BIAS EXISTED'

    The Sussexes' new aide's racism comments echo what Prince Harry said last year, when he warned young people of colour will be held back “as long as structural racism exists”.

    Harry told GQ magazine last year: “Unconscious bias… having the upbringing and the education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed.

    “Sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realise it (existed), especially then living a day or a week in my wife’s shoes.”

    SAMANTHA MARKLE SUGGESTS PRINCE HARRY IS ‘UNHAPPY’

    Samantha suggested Harry could be unhappy.

    She said: “Maybe he’s already questioning it – he has to be. Come on, he’s not 12. He was in the military. He’s got to have a sense of ‘Oh my God, everything you have said to be has been a lie’.”

    She then asked: “What man would be happy or comfortable like that? And the minute he starts pulling back from her I think it can get nasty – unless there’s a really good lawyer and they have really good counsellors.

    “I don’t know what it’s going to take.”

    'I HAVE RACIST TENDENCIES' – NEW AIDE

    Genevieve Roth, the Duke and Duchess’ new strategist, has admitted that race is an “issue” in her marriage and added: “As a white woman of privilege, I have racist tendencies written in at a cellular level.”

    Ms Roth has previously written about how it was only after she married her husband she realised the world treats her differently to him.

    Writing a piece for Australian social enterprise Primer, she said: “As a white American woman, I have too often made the mistake of considering racial injustice as something happening to black people that I needed to empathise with and fight for, instead of understanding it as something that I myself was creating and responsible for."

    Meghan Markle’s alleged bullying reportedly “real stress and trauma” at the Palace, a royal insider has claimed.

    In it, Jason Knauf said he was “very concerned” that Meghan “was able to bully two PAs out of the household”.

    Prince William and Harry went for a long walk to try to clear the air after Megxit but “didn’t part as friends”, according to reports.

    The Queen summoned Prince Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles to Sandringham in January last year for crunch talks about Meghan and Harry’s future in the Royal Family.

    But The Sunday Times claims William and Harry “did not part shores as friends”.

    And sources have now revealed the true impact of the fallout.
