Among the officers who served at Buckingham Palace They should not be non-white immigrants or foreigners until the late 1960s. It follows from documents found by the English List Defender.
According to him, the Queen and her family are exempt from the laws that prevent discrimination on the basis of race and gender.
The documents were discovered by Guardian journalists in the National Archives as part of a search for details of a procedure known as the Queen’s Consent. They were interested in how the palace used the practice of secretly interfering in draft laws and enforcing their specific wording or, conversely, removing certain parts of the rules. This method can be compared to royal propaganda, and according to The Guardian, the queen used it to the standards she cared about. The palace called this process a mere ritual.
In a 1968 document, the Queen’s chief financial manager, Lord Tryon, told government employees that “in fact, it is not customary to appoint non-white immigrants or foreigners to executive positions in the royal family.” As employees. The palace staff divided Lord Tryon into three groups – the senior workers, the clerks and the staff. Members of the minority served only in the last groups.
In the 1960s, members of government sought to enact laws prohibiting the dismissal of employees on the basis of race or ethnicity. The Queen was personally exempt from these laws, and her servants were not subject to the law. If one of the rejected job seekers at Buckingham Palace wants to complain of discrimination, his complaint as a result of the exception does not go to court with the others. The palace did not deny that it was under the law, but that its staff had their own grievance procedures.
The waiver came into effect in the 1970s, when Britain enacted several racial and gender equality laws in an effort to eliminate discrimination. Official documents, according to The Guardian, show how government officials coordinated with advisers to Queen Elizabeth II in the 1970s. With the help of a procedure called the consent of the Queen, precisely about the wording of the laws.
According to the British newspaper, the exemption has been extended to the present, although in 2010 the Equality Act replaced the original Racial Relations Act 1976, the Gender Discrimination Act 1975 and the Equal Pay Act 1970. Over the years, critics have consistently pointed out that the royal family used very little black people, Asians and people of various races.
The publication of the documents will again draw the attention of the media and the public on the subject of the British royal family and discrimination. Prince Harry Megan’s wife said in a recent interview that a family member expressed concern about her son’s skin color during her pregnancy. (CDK)
