The Royal Family Reportedly Has A New Plan To Address Diversity Concerns

Buckingham Palace is considering hiring a “diversity czar” to help with progress in terms of representation, according to new reports.

A source close to the royal family told ABC News that the palace is “listening and learning, to get this right” and said diversity is being taken “very seriously across the royal households.”

“We have the policies, the procedures and the programmes in place, but we haven’t seen the progress we would like in terms of representation, and more needs to be done,” the source added.

To combat the issue, the family is considering completing diversity training, in addition to hiring an individual to “look at diversity/inclusion across the three households.”

It comes as the royals are facing accusations of racism following Prince Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah two weeks ago, during which they revealed there were “concerns and conversations” about the colour of their child’s skin.
