Phillip Schofield shocks This Morning viewers after ‘defending’ Lady Hussey

Phillip Schofield shocked viewers after appearing to defend Lady Susan Hussey This morning.

The presenter discussed the situation of racism within the royal family on the latest episode of the ITV show (7 December) when he said “there are two sides to every story”.

Schofield also indicated that he believes not all information surrounding the controversy has come to light.

The presenter’s comments come a week after he was far more critical of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s former lady-in-waiting, who was forced to step down from her role as royal assistant at Buckingham Palace.

This comes after charity boss Ngozi Fulan accused Lady Hussey of leaving racist marks at a Queen Consort reception.

Fulani, founder and chief executive of Britain’s leading domestic violence charity for women of African and Caribbean descent, Sistah Spice, described the “traumatic” encounter, which saw Lady Susan insistently asking what part of Africa she was from.

Lady Susan, who served the late Queen for more than 60 years and is Prince William’s godmother, stepped down from her honorary role and issued a statement “profoundly apologizing for the pain caused”.

The subject of Lady Susan came up This morning as Schofield and Holly Willoughby discussed Harry and Meghan being presented with a Ripple of Hope Award in recognition of their work for racial justice and mental health at a gala hosted by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights (RFKHR) organization.

Schofield’s comment surprised viewers, with one writing: “I am absolutely shocked that Philip Schofield has attempted to defend Lady Hussey. It’s like no one else associated with the royal family can go wrong in his eyes except for Meghan & Harry.”

Another viewer called Schofield because he “challenged Ngozi Fulani’s account of the racism she experienced from Lady Hussey,” adding, “No, Phil, there’s not ‘always two sides to every story.’ . There is right and wrong. Racism is wrong, hateful and indefensible. It’s disgusting to use your privilege to excuse it.”

Another remarked: “Happy to shame and shame Lady Susan Hussey the other day, now Philip says she probably has her own side of the story and is defending her honor. Such bad magazine-style journalism.”

The Independent has contacted This morning for comment.
