Meghan Markle Racist Comments: Jo Marney Says Actress Will 'Taint' Royal Family

Ukip leader Henry Bolton's new glamour model girlfriend has been accused of making racist remarks about Prince Harry's bride-to-be Meghan Markle and suspended from the party.

She wrote that Ms Markle, Prince Harry's "black American" fiancee, will "taint" the Royal Family with "her seed" and pave the way for a "black king".

In a statement to the newspaper Ms Marney said: "I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used".

Party leader Henry Bolton said Marney's membership in UKIP was suspended immediately.

Nuttall resigned after seven months following the Election, when Ukip's polled less than 2 per cent. Steve Crowther took over until Mr Bolton was elected in September.

"He must go, he must go quickly, he must go as quietly as possible", he said.

Markle, who will Wednesday Harry in May, has spoken publicly and written about being biracial, including how it affected her acting career.

The leaked messages resulted in her immediate suspension from Ukip after the Mail on Sunday alerted party bosses to Jo Marney's highly offensive views.

He was responding to a teenage party activist who urged him to publicly call for Ms Marney to have her membership removed. She also said she would never have sex with "a negro" because they are "ugly".

UKIP's London Assembly Member Peter Whittle called the remarks "disgraceful" and called for her expulsion.

In the wake of the controversy, former Ukip leadership candidate Ben Walker has called for Mr Bolton to resign, accusing him of having "deeply flawed judgement".

He left his wife Tatiana (42) who gave birth to their second daughter in 2016 after going into labour on a train, prior to his relationship with Ms Marney becoming public.

Ukip's National Executive Committee is set to meet on Thursday to decide the party leader's fate.

On Sunday, he dismissed claims on Twitter that he was in Ms Marney's company when he appeared on television in mid-October as "rubbish".

When a reply to one of her messages suggested her comments were racist, she added "so what?" and said she did not want other races invading her culture.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai also took to social media to announce the panel would launch an investigation.

She added: "The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context".

"I woke up and saw a missile warning and thought 'no way.' I thought 'No, this is not happening today, '" Malapit said.
