Ironically, because we spent most of last week in London, we’re way behind on our Cathy reportage. We’re going to try to play catchup over the next day, but we figure the Waleses visit to Grange Pavilion in Cardiff to meet with members from the Windrush Cymru Elders, Black History Cymru 365, and the Ethnic Minority Youth Forum for Wales to kick off Black History Month was worth a post, even if we are a little late with it.
We’ve always said, when it comes to critiquing the royals, that we’re not of that culture, so we can only talk about it from the perspective of outsiders. It’s not for us to say whether this visit was well handled or not, but we think it’s fairly clear that, in the light of several embarassments and/or accusations levied against the royals in the past couple of years (not just Meghan and Harry’s issues with how the family treated them, but Princess Michael of Kent’s infamous blackamoor brooch, Lady Susan Hussey’s foot-in-mouth disease, and various reports that the Waleses don’t or didn’t have any people of color on their staff), they had to get this one right. We’re not here to relitigate all of that, but suffice it to say, this visit was extremely planned out, down to the most minute details. As for Kate’s style, we think it rather notable that she chose something so businesslike for this appearance. It’s a very sharp look, but there’s no royal frippery, frivolousness or fuss involved in it. She looks like she’s running for office. In a way, she is.
