Prince Harry and Meghan ‘SECOND’ Oprah interview would ‘push the royal family to the breaking point’

Boris Johnson’s sister defends calling Meghan ‘exotic’

Journalist and Prime Minister’s little sister, Rachel Johnson, has defended a comment she wrote in the Mail on Sunday in 2016, in which she said Meghan would inject some “exotic” DNA into the ‘pale’ royal family.

When she spoke to Amol Rajan as part of a BBC documentary about the relationship between the royal princes and the media, she said she would not have used that word now.

She said it was never meant to be racist – and said she had actually meant it as a compliment to the “genetically blessed” mixed race Duchess.

Johnson said she would not use the term now that she had been ‘educated’ and would be ‘canceled’ because the world had changed since then.

She said: “Of course, it was a few years ago we would not come near it now because we would be canceled for doing something about someone’s ethnic background to their skin color, it would be completely banned.

“For now I know, and now I have been educated, and I have taught myself that ‘exotic’ is a euphemism for Black, which one does not dare to say.

“I agree that it was a misfire, because no matter what you read, it sounds eugenic or racist. So let’s just forget it.”
