Lord Marland has spoken out against the Royal Family over their treatment of Lady Susan Hussey after her incident with Ngozi Fulani.

Lady Susan, the Prince of Wales’s 83-year-old godmother, resigned from the household and apologised after she repeatedly challenged Ms Fulani when she said she was British at the Queen Consort’s reception highlighting violence against women and girls.

Joining Bev Turner on GB News, Lord Marland said: “When there was that attack on the House of Commons and the whole House of Lords and Commons were shut, she happened to be having lunch.

“We were driven into the basement and for two or three hours we had to sit in the basement waiting for the Lords and Commons to be cleared.

“She's a remarkable woman. She had to sit on a waste paper basket for about 3 hours, an upturned waste paper basket with no chairs.

“The Queen would be horrified by all this. Service to the Queen for 40 years, unpaid, almost certainly.

“Dedicated to meeting people, being nice to them, introducing them. To end up having this done to her is, I think, a shocking thing.

“To have the whole conversation reported by the person who she had the conversation with, with no right of reply.

“So I feel deeply upset for Lady Hussey, she has done great service to this country and actually, I think the reaction of the Royal family to the Twitter storm was wrong and was weak. I just think this is madness.”
