Palace Responds to Allegation About Prejudice Hiring Practices

Buckingham Palace is responding to a new report that at one point in the recent past, people of color and immigrants were banned from serving in clerical roles in the Queen‘s staff, according to a bombshell new article.

Despite there being laws that protect workers from discrimination, the report also claims that there are documents that have been drawn up that make the Queen and her courtiers exempt from following such rules regarding racial and sex discrimination.

This was allegedly going on until “at least” the 1960s, though no clear date was given.

The Palace has responded to the following statement based on The Guardian article.

“Claims based on a second-hand account of conversations from over 50 years ago should not be used to draw or infer conclusions about modern day events or operations,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said in a statement to E! News. “The principles of Crown Application and Crown Consent are long established and widely known.”
