Well, this ousting didn’t last long!
Lady Susan Hussey was seen alongside members of the royal family this week — for the first time since she resigned from her role as a palace aide after that racism incident at Buckingham Palace!
On Sunday, Queen Elizabeth II’s longtime lady-in-waiting — who is also Prince William‘s godmother — was photographed walking to and from the church at St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, England. King Charles III and his sister Princess Anne were also seen at the same service… meaning the royals are no longer worried about being associated with her! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
Lady Susan Hussey Steps Out Alongside Royal Family Following Racist Incident at Palace https://t.co/vCy8qEXwoE

While Lady Susan hasn’t regained any official royal duties, this sighting proves how quickly she was allowed back into the fold! Probably much to the dismay of her critics…
If you don’t recall, back in November, Susan was called out for allegedly asking one guest racially-loaded questions at a royal reception. Domestic abuse activist Ngozi Fulani, of Sistah Space, took to social media to put the 83-year-old on blast, claiming Susan repeatedly asked her where she was from. And, no, the UK wasn’t a suitable answer! Ugh. You can see all her allegations (below)!
Mixed feelings about yesterday's visit to Buckingham Palace. 10 mins after arriving, a member of staff, Lady SH, approached me, moved my hair to see my name badge. The conversation below took place. The rest of the event is a blur.

Shortly after the headlines, Buckingham Palace released a statement declaring the royal household member involved had resigned. Two weeks later, Susan finally apologized to Ngozi face-to-face, with a statement declaring after the fact:
“Lady Susan has pledged to deepen her awareness of the sensitivities involved and is grateful for the opportunity to learn more about the issues in this area.”
Let’s hope she really is learning from her mistakes, but honestly, it’s hard to know with the royals! Sweeping under those fancy rugs seems to be their thing. They could easily be willing to breeze past the drama now that some time has passed… Thoughts?! Are you happy or upset to see Susan mingling with the royal family again?? Sound OFF (below)!
