US chatshow host Whoopi Goldberg has called for the British Royal Family to apologise for the British Empire and its role in the slave trade.
Goldberg demanded the royals atone for historian British colonialism and accused Britain of running “ram shod over India for years.”
“Let us not forget when we talk about what needs to happen, all the folks that need to apologise,” she told the audience of The View.
Goldberg went on to incorrectly state that Prince Charles had previously apologised for slavery during his trip to Barbados in November 2021, claiming this was his way of “releasing the hold that Britain has” over Barbados.
Her comments come after Prince William and Kate Middleton faced protests calling for the removal of Queen Elizabeth II as Jamaica’s head of state during their visit to the island nation as part of the royal tour celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
