Royals undertake diversity review

Not of their own ranks – of the policies that apply to those who work in their households… Like many workplaces worldwide, Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace are seeking to improve their policies around hiring and supporting staff from diverse backgrounds. Procedures and programs to do this are already in place, the Palace spokesperson says, but have not delivered the results they want to see. This, of course, is very much in focus after Harry and Meghan made allegations of racism within the Royal family in their earth-shattering interview with Oprah. Those comments will form part of the review, as will ‘collaborations’ with people from minority backgrounds, disabled people, and gay and transgender communities.
