'What were they doing there?' Dr Shola hits out at royal tours 'British Empire is dead'

Dr Shola claimed she was not surprised by the protests and anger from the locals about Prince Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex’s visit to Saint Lucia this week. She explained that if the royals were to continue visits to ex-colonies, they should go humbly. The activist went on to claim that the protests were about racial and social injustice, and the royals should have gone ready to apologise, instead of trying to bask in the British Empire.

Dr Shola told Sky News: “Absolutely I’m not surprised!

“But I am saying to you Niall, two years ago we had massive global black lives matter protests, right.

“We have been conversing in this country about different issues about racial injustice and social injustice.

“How can you tell me that in 2022, the children of the common Monarch, the grandchildren of the current Monarch don’t have it within the present consciousness.

Express Royal Correspondent Richard Palmer said in a post on Twitter: “The Earl and Countess of Wessex have received a warm welcome from crowds on a walkabout in Saint Lucia.

“But they have also faced a small anti-slavery protest from demonstrators urging the Queen to apologise.”

Arley Gill, chairman of the Grenada’s National Reparations Committee, said: “We, of the National Reparations Committee, on learning that we had these British oligarchs visit Grenada, wrote to the Governor-General, the Queen’s representative here in Grenada to have an audience with the Earl and Countess of Wessex to discuss the topic of reparations.

“So in a way we are a bit disappointed that they are not coming so we’re not able to have that conversation with them.”
