British royals William and Kate to meet U.S. President Biden in Boston on Friday

U.S. President Joe Biden plans to meet British royals William and Kate during a trip to Boston on Friday, the White House said.

“The president intends to greet the Prince and Princess of Wales when he is in Boston. We are still finalizing and working through the details,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at a briefing on Wednesday.

Prince William and his wife Kate will be in the United States for their first visit in eight years. It is their first overseas excursion since the death of Queen Elizabeth.

At the same time, a member of the British royal family’s household has left her role after making “unacceptable and deeply regrettable” comments about race and nationality to a woman at a grand reception at Buckingham Palace, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Ngozi Fulani, who was born in Britain and works for a domestic abuse support group, wrote on Twitter that the royal aide had repeatedly asked her: “What part of Africa are you from?” when she attended an event hosted by King Charles’s wife Camilla, the queen consort, on Tuesday.

“We take this incident extremely seriously and have investigated immediately to establish the full details. In this instance, unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments have been made,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said in a statement.

The spokesperson said the individual concerned, referred to by Fulani as Lady SH, wanted to apologise for the hurt caused and had stepped aside from her honorary role with immediate effect.
