An expose by The Guardian has claimed that Buckingham Palace has been openly engaging in discriminatory hiring practices in as recent as the 1960s – that supposedly didn’t allow immigrants or people of color from serving in clerical roles for hte Queen.

The principles of Crown Application and Crown Consent are long established and widely known.” Read their full response here and let us know:…ARE YOU SHOCKED??!?!
