The 83-year-old, who spent 60 years serving the late Queen, resigned from her honorary position “with immediate effect” in the face of criticism after Miss Fulani tweeted about her attendance at the event last month.




Racism has no place in our society, Prince William criticized his godmother’s “unacceptable words” in a statement.






After the uproar, Lady Susan Hussey demanded to see Ngozi Fulani, the creator of Sistah Space, in person to apologize for repeatedly asking Fulani where she was “truly” from.



The conversation took place on Friday at Buckingham Palace, and the former assistant apologized “sincerely.”




The statement also criticized the “torrent of abuse” Miss Fulani has since endured on social media and expressed the King and Queen Consort’s “pleasedness that both parties have reached this pleasant resolution.”



The Palace released the following statement today: “Lady Susan offered her deepest apologies at this meeting, full with warmth and empathy, for the remarks that were said and the grief they caused to Ms. Fulani.
