I was appalled when the Palace Machine almost immediately released a statement that, for all intents and purposes, took the story as released in all its glorious hyperbole, and accepted it unequivocally as "truth" instead of following their usual speak/no speak, it will be thoroughly investigated. Worse, William did not hesitate to throw his Godmother under the double-decker bus. How heartbroken she must be.
Ngozi Fulani (aka Marlene ) seems to be little more than a con woman whose charity has been "temporarily" closed, the only employee being the said Ms Fulani as the Charities Commission is investigating. Many British citizens of Caribbean and African descent and British citizenship were confounded by Ms Ngozi's "costume" as it did not fit any tribal African or Caribbean ethnic group. In light of this, I had to wonder if that is why Lady Susan was confused.
IMHO this was a case of "race-baiting" and believe that Lady Susan did her job and headed Ms Fulani away from her real target, Queen Camilla.
