Prince Harry accused of ‘bare-faced hypocrisy’ as he preaches about racism in scathing outburst by royal commentator

PRINCE Harry has been accused of “bare-faced hypocrisy” in a scathing outburst by a royal commentator.

Speaking on the TV show The Royal Beat royal biographer and commentator Robert Jobson slammed the Duke’s comments earlier this week about his own “unconscious bias.”

“I find this bare-faced hypocrisy, coming out from them [Harry and Meghan]” Jobson sensationally claims.

“I remember him making racial slurs about an Asian officer which was filmed by himself and distributed by his friends and he had to apologise for making racial comments.

“I find Harry telling everyone else that they are structurally racist hypocritical.”

Jobson was referring to a remark made by Harry back in 2009 where a leaked video showed him calling fellow soldier Ahmed Raza Khan “our little P*** friend”.

Harry apologised for the remark, made while training as an officer at Sandhurst Military Academy in 2006.

Jobson’s comments follow Harry’s remarks earlier this week where the prince said he didn't know unconscious bias existed until he married Meghan Markle and “walked a day in her shoes”.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, spoke about racism in an interview with BLM activist Patrick Hutchinson for GQ magazine.

Mr Hutchinson made headlines in June when he carried a white counter protester over his shoulder to safety in London during BLM demonstrations.

And Prince Harry admitted that his "upbringing and education" did not equip him to understand the issue of unconscious bias towards groups of people.

He said: "Once you realise or you feel a little bit uncomfortable, then the onus is on you to go out and educate yourself, because ignorance is no longer an excuse.

"And unconscious bias, from my understanding, having the upbringing and the education that I had, I had no idea what it was.

"I had no idea it existed.

"And then, sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realise it, especially then living a day or a week in my wife's shoes."

Unconscious bias is having prejudiced views about a certain group of people, such as of people from an ethnic minority, without being aware of it.

True Royalty TV’s weekly programme The Royal Beat is available to watch from Saturday 31st October on True Royalty TV.
