This Morning viewers slam Phillip Schofield for defending ‘broken’ Lady Hussey over the racing series

Phillip Schofield shocked viewers after defending Lady Susan Hussey in the Buckingham Palace racing series 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 he believes it is “another side of the story”.

Schofield defended 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 reportedly came 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.

Talk up about the incident This morningSchofield said, “I don’t think the whole picture of that story, and there’s an 85-year-old lady who may have a different side to the story and be completely, completely heartbroken by things that she might say she doesn’t necessarily like.” the picture was as she saw it.”

He continued, “But this story was told the way it was told, and I think that’s probably how it will stay.”

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.”
