Meghan Markle is ‘tainting’ Royal Family: UKIP leader’s girlfriend suspended for racist comments

The girlfriend of UKIP’s leader, Jo Marney, has made racist comments about Prince Harry’s fiancee, Meghan Markle, ‘tainting’ the Royal Family, in a series of text messages published by the Mail on Sunday.

In these messages, the model made various comments about Ms Markle and black people. Ms Marney said the American actress would ‘taint’ the royal bloodline with ‘her seed’ and pave the way for a ‘black king’.

She also claimed Meghan has ‘a tiny brain’, describing her as ‘a scrubber’ and a ‘gender equality t***’ who is ‘obsessed with race’ and a ‘dumb little commoner’.

The 25-year-old also wrote that she would never have sex with ‘a negro’ because they are ‘ugly’.


Marney, partner of party leader Henry Bolton, has since been suspended from the party, known for its right-wing views and fiercely anti-EU stance. Bolton declined to comment.

The Mail on Sunday said Ms Marney sent the messages three weeks before her relationship with Mr Bolton started.

The recipient of the messages, who has not been identified, replied to suggest her comments were racist. Marney wrote back: “so what?” and said she did not want other races invading her culture.

She has apologised and said her messages had been taken out of context, releasing this statement:  “I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used.

“The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context. Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused.”

“No offence was intended and, again, I apologise unreservedly for any such offence or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of UKIP my friends, family and loved ones.

“I have disappointed them all and let myself down. I cannot sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so.”

UKIP has confirmed that Ms Marney’s membership to the party has been suspended, but some members have called for her permanent removal. Peter Whittle, who was once deputy leader of UKIP, tweeted: “These are disgraceful remarks. This person should not just be suspended… but expelled altogether.”

When Meghan, 36, and Harry, 33, first started dating, the Prince released a rare statement, accusing the media of racism and intrusion into the actress’ life, noting he was ‘deeply disappointed’ he could not protect her from the harassment.

“Some of this has been very public – the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments,” the statement said.

What incredible insensitivity this woman has after all the princes have had to endure in their short lives. Personally I’m delighted to see Prince Harry happy and settling down. I hope their lives are filled with joy. No more sadness is needed!

I’m an Australian republican and have noi time for constitutional monarchy, at least where australia is concerned (the poms can do what they please0, but i’m disgusted by the racism directed at meghan markle by this ukip nitwit. goes to show that there’s none so stupid as racists/white supremacists.

She won’t have sex with a person of african HERITAGE, but seems to find little objection with pale elfin xenophobes. if she comes to the States, perhaps we can introduce her to Jeff Sessions and he and Mr. Bolton can shower her with cookies.

I’m Out of place here, I’m an american. With Prince Charles, Prince William, Price George and perhaps an other little prince,….Prince Harry is well removed from the chain of command. I am so pleased for him and ms. markle to have found each other. I can not relate to the royal life style, nor do I want to.. It is a very difficult way of life. . His mother is smiling that he has found love and someone to share all the troubles of this life with. I will not comment on the woman involved. I wish NOTHING less than happiness and prosperity for Prince Harry and ms markle.. As you say, God save the queen. (and send blessings upon both prince harry and ms. markle)

When will people STOP looking at the color of a person’s skin, when after all God created one race and it’s called the human race! Maybe she’s jealous because when she looks in the mirror she doesn’t see a beautiful face looking back at her! Moses was married to a woman that was an ethiopian and when his sister miriam, spoke out against it, God struck her with Leprosy…..numbers 12 kjv

ms marney has a lot of nerve calling black people “ugly” she needs to find a mirror !. no one in their right mind would want her any way !

Edmund Janas Mon 15 January, 2018 - 6:20 am

They make a beautiful couple.

this little nazi b****’s probably not getting enough attention from her sugar daddy!

Would she rather the Royal Family go back to ancient times and inbreed to keep the bloodline “pure”? XD

Her apology reads like that of a child writing an apology as an alternative to punishment at school. And of course, more apology to the people she knows who are embarrassed by her… than to the people she actually hurt. Sure, she did say “the public,” but one can certainly glean that she means her own public audience. No apology at all to blacks, nor to Meghan herself.

Like those non-apologies that so many other celebrities give to those they hurt: “I’m sorry you were hurt/offended by what I said/did.” Not “I’m sorry for hurting/offending you.”

“I did what the public nowadays thinks is a no-no. I’m sorry it resulted in gasps of shock. I only want people to kiss my feet, so I’m apologizing so you can all get back to doing that.”

Not one shred of humility in knowing WHY what she said was wrong, that it’s NOT a no-no but a mindset that has literally killed entire cultures and still kills innocent people today. And it’s not just what she SAID… but the fact that that’s what she THINKS. Apologizing for saying it out loud instead of keeping it to herself, doesn’t change what a horrible person she is. All it did was reveal the truth.

No, Jo, we aren’t upset you said those things… We’re upset you FEEL those things. Get off your high-horse, interact with people of other races as equals, then maybe you’ll realize they’re people too. Until then, I don’t see any real hope of redemption for you.

How can she say thisr cruel words?. Nobody’s forcing you to have sex with a black GUy and for all we know your mamma or grandma could have jad sex with a “negro”. You Ms Marney are one ugly skinass b**** and we black skin people are MUCH more beautiful than you.

I’m wondering why she made the comment in the first place… Meghan of Mixed race? Even if she is, what business is it of hers? She should take a good, long look into a mirror. That get-up shes sporting looks like something a 10-year-old would wear. Don’t know how old “jo” is….but too old to be wearing that……dress? costume? they look like white mice… there no sun in england???? HAHAHAHAHA

Bill Mon 15 January, 2018 - 3:24 pm

She is probably just bitter because she has no chance of ever being as smoking hot as Meghan!

Holly Mon 15 January, 2018 - 4:02 pm

These comments are disgusting. No apology can disguise their hatred. So are some of the comments here.

Vicky matthews Wed 17 January, 2018 - 4:19 pm

Is just too bad that she is not beautiful, or young or tall or classy……
