Lady Susan Hussey will be invited to King Charles’s coronation, of course

A month ago, Queen Camilla hosted her first big event at Buckingham Palace as the Queen Consort. The event was part of the rollout of her companions/ladies-in-waiting, and Lady Susan Hussey was included. Hussey was QEII’s favorite lady-in-waiting, and Charles and Camilla had asked Hussey to stay on in some kind of emeritus position. At the event, Hussey barraged Ngozi Fulani with a racist interrogation about where Fulani is “really” from, and chaos ensued. Fulani went public, reporting Hussey’s racism, and BP quickly “accepted” Hussey’s resignation. At no point was Fulani offered a public apology, and the palace left Fulani out there on her own for seventeen days as she was being targeted with racism and hatred. Finally, Fulani was invited back to BP for a sit-down with Hussey, in what was one of the most awkward photo-ops I’ve ever seen. All of that, and the palace still acted as if Hussey was somehow equally a victim because Fulani had reported Hussey’s racism.

So, yeah, the Hussey debacle spoke volumes about the prevalence of racism in the royal court, and the lack of accountability for certain old white people. The way the royal reporters were caping for Hussey, we also figured out that Hussey has long been an indiscreet “royal source” close to power. All of which means that Hussey is on her way back into the royal fold, if not back completely already. Hussey will receive an invitation to King Charles’s coronation!

The Royal aide who quit over last year’s race row will be invited to King Charles’ coronation. Lady Susan Hussey has been given the green light to attend, just weeks after she quit following a storm over her comments to charity boss Ngozi Fulani. Lady Susan, 83 and godmother to Prince William, repeatedly asked Ms Fulani where she was “really from” at a November reception, sparking a huge storm.

She is to get an invite to see King Charles crowned after meeting Ms Fulani at Buckingham Palace and offering “sincere apologies”.

A source said: “Lady Susan received private support from friends during the aftermath of what happened. Some politely canvassed the suggestion Lady Susan should be made welcome at the coronation. It was pointed out the many years of service and duty she gave the Queen, to whom she was a loyal confidente. With relations now smoothed over between Buckingham Palace and Ms Fulani, the King is now able to extend an invitation to Lady Susan.”

Around 2,000 are expecting at King Charles’ two-hour Westminster coronation on May 6. It will be one of the most watched worldwide TV events of the year.

“It was pointed out the many years of service and duty she gave the Queen, to whom she was a loyal confidente.” Meaning, Hussey knows where all the bodies are buried and she knows who buried them. Hussey is “loyal” – to certain people, but not the institution. Much like Charles including Prince Andrew in the royal Christmas crap, Hussey simply knows too much to leave her out in the cold completely. God knows, the racist old bitty might decide to write a book too. As my father used to say: better in the tent pissing out, than outside of the tent pissing in. How long before we hear that Queen Camilla has asked Hussey to return to some position in the palace? In any case, it speaks volumes about the royal court of King Charles and Queen Camilla. This whole disgusting episode has told you everything you need to know about the whole family and the people they surround themselves with.

    I wonder if Charles will invite Fawcett

    • Sam says:

      Did you see that she was on Kate’s Christmas show and even featured in the promo for it!?!? These people are either stupid as f*** or they want people to see that they are evil.

      Btw his Carole think was a flop like always. I think they didn’t even wrote about it in salty Island!
      There was a short scene where Kate was talking to 2 people (the picture where she’s wearing this Burberry dress from the America-trip) and she made a total fool of herself again. She just can’t help herself. It’s embarrassing as f***..

    • DK says:

      “It was pointed out the many years of service and duty she gave the Queen, to whom she was a loyal confidante.”

      Sure. But they literally locked Angela Kelley, the Queen’s most favorite servant/dresser/etc. out of her Buckingham Palace apartment and kicked her to the curb, so….clearly that’s not the real reason.

      And it’s clear they fear Angela Kelley has dirt to, so being afraid of what Hussey knows isn’t the problem.

      It’s that they see no problem with her racism, since they feel similarly.

      • Debbie says:

        “It’s that they see no problem with her racism, since they feel similarly.” Exactly, @DK. And as to Kaiser’s last point that it won’t be long until we hear about the Hussey Racist being appointed back to Lady-in-Waiting position, I say “Hah!” I would be anything that she’s never stopped doing it. It’s just a matter of people looking the other way, and the British press not minding one way or the other.

    The coronation is going to be one of the most watched worldwide TV events this year? I somehow….don’t think so. My guess is, royalists will watch it, but even then, maybe not? It seems like it will be pretty boring. I think people might tune in to the beginning to see the arrivals and what people are wearing, and then turn it off. I can’t imagine that I could sit through two hours of that and royal watching is my hobby, lol.

    and of course hussey is going to be invited. Its not just that she knows where the bodies are buried, its that Charles and Camilla probably don’t think she did or said anything wrong.

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      Yup. We know at least Camilla has said the same thing in the past, present, and future. Probably gave her explicit instructions to interrogate anyone failing the paper bag test.

      And you think the whole world is going to watch the coronation of your useless, spineless king? L to the freakin’ OL.

    • The Hench says:

      In the eyes of the Royal Family, if you support the Royal Family then literally ANYTHING else goes – as we have seen with Andrew and are now seeing with Lady Hussey. Fraud, paedophilia, rape, treason (in the case of Eddie VIII), theft, access for cash scandals, racism – all tickety boo thanks v much. But suggest there’s something wrong with the actual institution? Off with your head.

  3. Flowerlake says:

    They should stop her and ask her where she is really from

  4. Eurydice says:

    No, she won’t be asked to come back to the palace – this invitation is like an honorary medal for years of service and after that she’ll “retire.”

    • Amy Bee says:

      How many times was Michael Fawcett brought back? The Royal Family values loyalty above everything else. See also Jason Knauf.

      • Eurydice says:

        Yes, but those are henchmen of existing royals. Lady Susan is unnecessary.

      • ShazBot says:

        Susan Hussey is Highgrove set. They’re casting her as QE2s lady in waiting, and she was, but she also goes way way way back with Charles and Camilla and was part of the wagons circling against Diana. She is a close friend of THEM and will of course be there.

    • C says:

      She’ll be back. They’ll just cover it up.

    • tolly says:

      It’s hard to find women who are older and less attractive than Camilla, and she’ll need attendants at the coronation.

  5. Amy Bee says:

    Not surprising at all. She’ll be back in the fold in no time.

  6. Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

    I don’t think that we’ll ever “hear” about Susan Hussey being welcomed back into the royal household, it will just happen and the invisible contract will ensure that most people outside of the household will never know.

  7. Brassy Rebel says:

    I’ve been predicting she would be invited to the coronation all along. The pseudo sacking, the pseudo apology meeting at the palace. It was all performative. The pr people had this mapped out from day one.

  8. Julia K says:

    They kicked Harry out and now he’s” outside the tent pissing in”. BRF should have listened to your father, Kaiser.

    • Brassy Rebel says:

      Also, they’re going to greater lengths to hang on to this racist “hanger-on” than they ever did to keep Harry, an actual member of the family.

  9. Gabby says:

    I hope 2023 is the year that BIPOC in the UK and the commonwealth, their BIPOC leaders, communities, entertainers and organizations decide to stop participating in all royal events. The BRF is using you as human props in a PR game, and they can’t do it if you refuse to play.

    A quiet boycott of the coronation so the sea of exclusively white faces is broadcast to the world. Don’t show up to palace events, walkabouts, etc. Decline royal visits to your organization, investiture invitations, etc. The BRF is within its rights to continue being the racist organization they have always been, but they need to stop hiding behind those to whom they show zero respect.
