A NEW aide to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has sparked fury as past comments branding all white people “racist” emerged.
“It does not matter how many marches I have planned or how many progressive candidates I have campaigned for or how many times I have chanted Black Lives Matter in the streets: I am rife with internalised racism and unconscious bias,” she added.
“And to all of the non-black folks reading this, we need to get clear on something: So are you.”
Roth has also previously revealed she realised her own “unconscious bias” after marrying her black husband, Jordan, saying “As a white woman of privilege, I have racist tendencies written in at a cellular level.”
Writing a piece for Australian social enterprise Primer, she said: “As a white American woman, I have too often made the mistake of considering racial injustice as something happening to black people that I needed to empathise with and fight for, instead of understanding it as something that I myself was creating and responsible for.
Her past comments have sparked fury on Twitter, with one user saying her comments are “not a good sign”, a second said “you couldn’t make it up” while a third branded her remarks “twaddle”.
A fourth Twitter user went even further and said “Oh God… I’ve never read such an utter vomit inducing pile of pigswill in my life…”
SUSSEXES’ NEW AIDE MAKES PEOPLE WANT TO ‘VOMIT’ OVER REMARKS
A new aide to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has sparked fury as her past comments branding all white people “racist” emerged.
Genevieve Roth, the Duke and Duchess’ new strategist, last year claimed “all white people are rife with internalised racism” in an article for Good Housekeeping.
But her past comments have sparked fury on Twitter, with one user saying they are “not a good sign”, while a second said “you couldn’t make it up” – and a third slated her words as pure “twaddle”.
A fourth Twitter user went even further, writing, “Oh God… I’ve never read such an utter vomit inducing pile of pigswill in my life…”
NEW MEG & HAZ AIDE SLAMS WHITE PEOPLE FOR ‘BEING RACIST’
The Sussexes’ new aide has claimed that “all white people are rife with internalised racism”.
Genevieve Roth, the Duke and Duchess’ new strategist, has revealed she realised her “unconscious bias” after marrying her black husband, Jordan.
She admitted that race is an “issue” in their marriage and added: “As a white woman of privilege, I have racist tendencies written in at a cellular level.”
Last year, Roth wrote an article for Good Housekeeping where she said “all white people are rife with internalised racism”.
And in a piece for Australian social enterprise Primer, she said: “As a white American woman, I have too often made the mistake of considering racial injustice as something happening to black people that I needed to empathise with and fight for, instead of understanding it as something that I myself was creating and responsible for.”
MEGHAN AND HARRY’S DUBBING FAMILY THE FIRM ‘AGGRESSIVE & DELIBERATE’ – EXPERT
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s description of the extended Royal Family as ‘the firm’ while complaining about them in Oprah Winfrey’s chat “was a poor choice of words”, says relationship expert Tina Wilson.
Speaking of the continuing fallout from the explosive interview, the Wingman app founder told The Sun Online that their comments showed “they are wanting people to know they firmly view themselves as outsiders.
“The word appears aggressive and used as a deliberate tactic to subconsciously imply the Royal institution is not relatable.
“It has become clear for sometime that Harry was very much the driving force behind Megxit. Meghan has taken a lot of the blame but Prince Harry has been instrumental in their decisions as a couple to leave.
“The Sussexes appear to be a close couple and choose the occasion to reveal their happy baby gender news. For the sake of their relationship I hope Prince William and Prince Charles already knew the sex of the baby and didn’t find out on the news [via Oprah’s chat].”
DAMAGE BETWEEN ROYAL FAMILY & SUSSEXES ‘UNFIXABLE’ – EXPERT
The gaping chasm between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family could be too large to overcome, fears a relationship guru.
“The fear is Oprah’s interview could put a permanent wedge between Prince Harry and other senior Royals, and there have already been reports that a phone call between the families didn’t resolve anything,” says Wingman app founder, Tina Wilson.
She told The Sun Online: “The damage [is] too great to repair.
“Prince Harry is hoping to reunite and heal the relationship with his brother but time will tell whether this is possible. Using Princess Diana as a pawn is not a wise move either.
“Revealing personal details about arguments is not productive and Meghan and Harry may even find it counter productive if they wish to heal the rift with their family even if their intentions were pure.”
SUSSEXES HAVE CHANGED RELATIONSHIP WITH ROYAL FAMILY ‘FOREVER’
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s complaints to Oprah Winfrey have been “extremely damaging to the entire Royal family”, according to a relationship expert.
Tina Wilson, founder of the Wingman app, told The Sun Online: “Airing your dirty laundry for the world to witness, to such highly private people, will cause much concern.
“The Sussexes even claimed they now wish to move forward after owning their truths by talking to Oprah.
“However, the relationship will be forever changed and there may not be anything to salvage.
“The Royals are putting on a brave face, but privately they will be embarrassed and furious, whether or not the allegations being made are true or not.”
CASHING IN ON MEDIA DEALS
Since leaving their roles as working royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already signed lucrative digital media deals to capitalise on their celebrity.
One is to produce content for Netflix, and another to present podcasts for Spotify.
They have spoken of their desire “to do something of meaning, to do something that matters,” in California, where they have launched a wide-ranging non-profit organisation named Archewell.
Harry also is working with Oprah Winfrey on a documentary series about mental health for the Apple TV+ streaming service.
DIANA BOOKIES’ FAVOURITE FOR ROYAL BABY NAME
Diana is the firm favourite, 5-1 with bookmaker Coral, to be the name of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s second baby.
Alexandria is now the second in the market at 8-1.
“Diana has been by far the most popular name in our betting since Harry and Meghan confirmed that they were having a baby girl, and it is the 5-1 favourite now to be the name they go for,” said Coral spokesman Harry Aitkenhead.
Alice, Emma, Grace and Greta are all 16-1.
“Alexandria is the second favourite, whilst Alice, Emma, Grace and Greta are all in the mix too,” added Aitkenhead.
WHAT IS BETTERUP?
BetterUp – where Prince Harry now works – raised $125million in February, taking its valuation to $1.73billion.
Founded in 2013, it offers a mobile app that connects people to coaching, counselling and mentoring programmes.
The service is used by more than 300 businesses including Chevron, Snap Inc and AT&T’s WarnerMedia.
MENTAL FITNESS HELP THROUGH BETTERUP
In his new role, Prince Harry will help promote mental fitness and expand the company’s roster of coaches and customers, among other duties, a BetterUp blog post said.
“I firmly believe that focusing on and prioritising our mental fitness unlocks potential and opportunity that we never knew we had inside of us,” Harry said in the post.
He also said he had been working with a BetterUp coach and found it “invaluable”.
DUKE OF SUSSEX ‘CHIEF IMPACT OFFICER’
Prince Harry will become the first chief impact officer of BetterUp Inc, a San Francisco-based start-up that provides employee coaching and mental health assistance, the company said on Tuesday.
The move comes about a month after Harry and Meghan made a final split and said they would not return as working members of the royal family in the UK.
PRINCE HARRY PLANNED ‘MEATY’ ROLE
The Wall Street Journal had earlier reported that Prince Harry, 36, intended taking up a “meaty” role one year after he quit the Royal Family.
The Duke of Sussex told the publication in an email: “I intend to help create impact in people’s lives.
“Proactive coaching provides endless possibilities for personal development, increased awareness, and an all-round better life.”
In his new job, the prince – who said he had used the BetterUp platform himself – will not manage employees or have direct reports.
He will appear at events and attend HQ meetings once Covid restrictions lift.
PRINCE HARRY ‘CHAMPIONING POTENTIAL’ FOR BETTERUP
In his new role with BetterUp, the Duke of Sussex will champion the importance of maximising human potential worldwide, according to CEO Alexi Robichaux.
Prince Harry said in a BetterUp blog post: “I firmly believe that focusing on and prioritising our mental fitness unlocks potential and opportunity that we never knew we had inside of us.
“As the Royal Marine Commandos say, ‘It’s a state of mind.’ We all have it in us.”
The Duke of Sussex also said he wanted to “create impact” after being named as part of the leadership team with BetterUp Inc.
In February 2021 the company announced it had raised $125million in funding at a valuation of $1.73billion.
WHAT IS BETTERUP – WHERE PRINCE HARRY NOW WORKS
Prince Harry has joined the corporate world by landing a job working for a coaching and mental health firm.
The 36-year-old has been named “Chief Impact Officer” at San Francisco-based BetterUp Inc — his first job since quitting as a working royal.
BetterUp’s platform combines behavioural science, artificial intelligence, and human coaching to optimise personal growth and professional development, according to the company.
Founded in 2013 by Alexi Robichaux, the US coaching and mental health platform has grown to more than 270 employees and a network of some 2,000 coaches.
It provides life coaches to help clients, which include Nasa, Chevron, Mars, Genentech, Snap, and Warner Media.
DUKE OF SUSSEX PRAISED FOR ‘ENERGY & ATTITUDE’ AT NEW SILICON VALLEY JOB
Prince Harry has won praise from colleagues while working quietly for months at his new BetterUp job in the US.
Alexi Robichaux, CEO of the Silicon Valley start-up, told the BBC that he and his team were “honoured” to have the Duke of Sussex working with them in the role.
Singing his praises, Harry’s boss commented on his “incredible attitude” and added that the prince was “filled with energy and enthusiasm”.
COULD HARRY BE RAKING IN SEVEN-FIGURE SALARY?
Although secrecy surrounds Prince Harry’s new Silicon Valley job, similar roles can command seven figures at other Silicon Valley firms.
Alexi Robichaux, CEO of BetterUp – where the royal has been working quietly for months – refused to tell the BBC whether the Duke was working long hours at his new job.
He added: “I’m not worried about hours.
“I’m worried about contribution and I’m worried about change and positive change.”
‘JUST CALL HIM HARRY – NOT PRINCE OR DUKE’
Alexi Robichaux, CEO of the Silicon Valley start-up BetterUp – where Prince Harry now works in the US – told the BBC: “He’s been in the role for a couple of months, and we’re so excited to share the news with the world.
“We’re partners here, he likes to be called Harry in the workplace, so we just address him as Harry.”
HOURS & SALARY TOP SECRET FOR HAZ’S JOB
Prince Harry has been working quietly for MONTHS at his new BetterUp job, his boss has revealed.
Alexi Robichaux, CEO of the Silicon Valley start-up, also shared that the Duke of Sussex decided to drop his royal names in the workplace – while keeping his salary and working hours a secret.
He told the BBC: “You can imagine as a private company, we don’t disclose any compensation for any employees and folks.
“And so unfortunately I’m not able to share that.”
SUSSEXES’ NEW AIDE: ‘I AM RIFE WITH INTERNALISED RACISM’
Writing an article for Good Housekeeping, Genevieve Roth, the Duke and Duchess’ new strategist, said “all white people are rife with internalised racism”.
Ms Roth added: “It does not matter how many marches I have planned or how many progressive candidates I have campaigned for or how many times I have chanted Black Lives Matter in the streets: I am rife with internalised racism and unconscious bias.
“And to all of the non-black folks reading this, we need to get clear on something: So are you.”
MIKE TINDALL: ZARA’S 3RD BABY ‘BORN ON FLOOR’
Speaking on The Good, The Bad and The Rugby about Zara giving birth to their third baby, Mike Tindall said: “Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house! Yeah brilliant, six o’clock last night.
“8lb 4oz, very bonny. Arrived very quickly, didn’t make it to hospital, on the bathroom floor!
“Fortunately Zara’s friend Dolly is, she’s actually more important than I am at making sure she’s been at all three of my children’s births, she was there and recognised that we wouldn’t have got to the hospital in time, so it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, towels down, brace brace brace!
“Fortunately the midwife that was going to meet us at the hospital wasn’t that far away so she drove up, got there just as we’d assumed the position, and then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived!”
ROYAL RUMBLE OVER QUEEN JIBE
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a “particularly dangerous” allegation about the Queen during their bombshell Oprah interview, it has been claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex suggested there was a difference between the Queen and the Monarchy itself – but the comments reportedly went “little noticed” by viewers.
Palace servants at Windsor Castle were left unsettled by the family ructions and allegations made during the Oprah chat, the Mail on Sunday reports.
And of the many woes circulating at Windsor, the paper’s Kate Mansey wrote: “They are also concerned by one particularly dangerous accusation that has, so far, been little-noticed.
“This was the insinuation by the Sussexes to Oprah that there is some sort of distinction between the Queen – whom they have been at pains to say is blameless – and the institution of Monarchy itself.”
ROYAL BABY JOY FOR ZARA TINDALL
Zara Tindall has given birth to her third child – a baby boy named Lucas Philip Tindall in a touching nod to the Duke of Edinburgh.
Her rugby ace husband, Mike, confirmed the happy news on his podcast – and revealed the Queen’s granddaughter gave birth on the bathroom floor on Sunday.
SUSSEXES’ POLITICAL AMBITIONS
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been speaking out about politics, urging Americans to vote in the recent US election.
And earlier this year, it was claimed the duchess could follow prominent actor Arnold Schwarzenegger into politics after holding a secret meeting with a top Democrat.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex risked a row in Britain by spending an hour chatting to the influential California Governor, Gavin Newsom.
But in California, where the couple are living, politicians are hoping the former actress will follow the “well-worn path” of Arnie into politics.
MANY AIDES HAVE LEFT THE SUSSEXES
The Sun has revealed that Meghan Markle has also parted ways with Nick Collins, her agent since she was an unknown actress.
PR team Sunshine Sachs, which represented her when she was on Suits, has been shifted to the couple’s charity ventures.
At least nine other aides quit their roles when Meghan and Prince Harry were working royals.
Their PR chief Sara Latham, who worked for Hillary Clinton, also left before being poached by the Queen.
PRINCE HARRY’S CHIEF OF STAFF ‘WANTED OUT’
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s chief of staff “wanted out” after “having to fulfil more work than her job spec”, it’s been claimed.
Catherine St-Laurent left a plum job with Bill and Melinda Gates to head up Harry and Meghan’s foundation last April – but it was revealed this week that she had left the post.
An insiders told The Telegraph that the mum had “wanted out”, and that the royal duo “do not have a big team out in LA so it is undoubtedly going to be a blow.”
One well-placed claimed: “I think there was a sense that she was having to fulfil a great many functions for the couple – not all of which were necessarily in her job spec.
“Catherine’s very bubbly and has a big personality. She was the bright hope to run their organisation so this is surprising news.”
WHO IS SUSSEXES’ NEW AIDE, GENEVIEVE ROTH?
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have linked up with the woman behind Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign in the US.
Genevieve Roth worked as director of Creative Engagement for the Clinton Campaign five years ago – since founding the social impact agency the Invisible Hand.
And it was this week revealed the company had joined forces with the Duke and Duchess’ Archewell Foundation.
In a LinkedIn post, the company said: “Earlier this year, Invisible Hand joined Archewell on their mission to drive systemic culture change across all communities, one act of compassion at a time.”
After graduating from Emerson College and the Columbia Journalism School Publishing Course, Ms Roth also worked with a US government initiative launched by former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle: Let Girls Learn.
