Lady Susan Hussey has been defended by Prince Harry after the late Queen’s former lady-in-waiting was accused of racism.

Lady Hussey served Elizabeth II for more than 60 years and had stayed on in an honorary role to support King Charles, but resigned last November after she was accused of “interrogating” a Buckingham Palace guest about where she was “really” from.

Ngozi Fulani, the director of east London charity Sistah Space, claimed the 83-year-old aide moved her hair to see her name badge before asking persistent questions about her birthplace.

Speaking to journalist Tom Bradby in an interview to promote his autobiography Spare, out in bookstores on Tuesday, Prince Harry said all that he and Meghan Markle had “ever asked for in the last – certainly the last – few years is some accountability”.

“I’m very happy for Ngozi Fulani to be invited into the palace to sit down with Lady Susan Hussey and to reconcile because Meghan and I love Susan Hussey,” he said.
