Princess 'pushy' Michael of Kent and racism

I referred a while back to an alleged gaffe by the wife of one of HM The Queen's cousins whilst dining in a New York restaurant.

Her attempts to retrieve her reputation continue; I am coming to the conclusion that she, as an individual, is probably no more culpable of harbouring racist thoughts than many other people of her generation whose cultural upbringing makes it almost impossible for them to open their mouths without making worse a situation in which they have inadvertantly found themselves. I concur with the article - stop digging!
