Princess Beatrice ignores royal race row as she poses at glam London event

Princess Beatrice looked stunning posed for phots as she attended the glam Mrs. Alice Christmas Cocktails evening at De Gournay in London.

Wearing a stylish brown coat and black trousers, the Princess of York kept her long hair down and pushed back as she smiled for snaps at the glam event.

Keeping accessories to a minimum, Beatrice, 34, wore just a singular bracelet.

Beatrice's outing comes amid controversy surrounding the resignation of Lady Sarah Hussey, formerly a senior member of the royal household, after she was accused of making racist remarks at a reception being held by Queen Consort Camilla at Buckingham Palace.

The former lady-in-waiting to the late Queen Elizabeth II, was accused by Ngozi Fulani, chief executive of Sistah Space, of touching her hair and repeatedly asking where she “really came from” during the event.

Following Ngozi discussing her experience on social media, Buckingham Palace announced that the person in question had resigned and apologised for these “unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments."

Ngozi had kept the identity of the person hidden, referring to her as "SH" but after the resignation was announced, it soon became clear that she had been referring to Susan Hussey.

The only royal to address this so far is Prince William, who is Sarah Hussey's godson.

A spokesperson for the Prince told US press: "This is a matter for Buckingham Palace but as the Prince of Wales spokesperson I appreciate you're all here and understand you'll want to ask about it. So let me address it head on.

"I was really disappointed to hear about the guests experience at Buckingham Palace last night.

"Obviously, I wasn't there, but racism has no place in our society. The comments were unacceptable, and it is right that the individual has stepped aside with immediate effect."

Ngozi has since appeared on Good Morning Britain alongside her daughter to discuss what took place with hosts Kate Garraway, 55, and Ben Shephard, 47.

It was here that she revealed that no one from Buckingham Palace has been in touch since she made the allegations.

"Have you had a response directly from Buckingham Palace? We understand that Prince William has invited you…" Kate asked after Ngozi explained how she was treated.

"No," Ngozi said. "No, so that's surprising, people keep saying the palace has reached out to me. Nobody has reached out to me. Not from the palace, not from…"

"Have they reached out to the charity?" Ben then questioned. She responded: "No. I don't know where this has come from, but I'm telling you categorically we have not heard from the palace."
