The article is very balanced and restrained. The shrill level of wokeness and outrage that has been reached - sadly on these boards as well, as very few of the former royalty experts post anymore - would have made me say much more.
As awful as the insensitive interchange was, I had to chuckle, as one could easily swap Lady Susan's name with that of the late Prince Philip when reading that conversation as relayed in the BBC story.
The King is wise to keep on the modernization (and hopefully zero tolerance) track. Hopefully with the vanishing of the old guard, the monarchy can lead by finally breaking free of that colonial-era tone-deaf mindset that was somehow okay in the past.
