As part of Black History Month, that runs throughout October, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have called for an end to what they have described as “structural racism”. These remarks were made in a piece written specifically on Black History Month.

Prince Harry and Meghan recognised in the article that changes have been made in the UK over the past 30 years but stated “sufficient progress had not been achieved”. The article was published in the London Evening Standard which highlighted and recognised leaders in Britain’s black community.

As brought to you by UNN, Harry and Meghan have recently offered their thoughts on the US election and have agreed a deal to create content for Netflix.

In the article in the London Evening Standard they have said: “if you are white and British, the world you see often looks just like you. For as long as structural racism exists, there will be generations of young people of colour who do not start their lives with the same equality of opportunity as their white peers. And for as long as that continues, untapped potential will never get to be realised”.

The article was concluded with the sentences: “We cannot change history, nor can we edit our past. But we can define our future as one that is inclusive, as one that is equal, and one that is colourful.”.

Following the release of the article a spokesman for Prince Harry has said: “The Duke believes structural racism exists in the UK and I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who disagrees with that. He is not saying that Britain itself is structurally racist or that Britain is racist.”. The spokesman was insistent that Harry was referring to parts of institutions in Britain.
