Daniel Kaluuya jokes about Meghan and Harry’s Royal Family race row on US television

The Duchess of Sussex’s assertion that a member of the Royal Family had expressed concern about the colour of her unborn baby’s skin prompted anger and disbelief. But Daniel Kaluuya, the British Oscar nominee, raised a laugh as he joked about the claim on US television last night. Kaluuya, who was born in London to Ugandan parents, used the race allegations raised by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their Oprah Winfrey interview as he made his hosting debut on long-running comedy show Saturday Night Live. “First of all, I know you’re hearing my accent and thinking ‘oh no, he’s not black, he’s British,'” he said. “Let me reassure you that I am black. I’m black and I’m British. Basically I am what the royal family was worried the baby would look like.” Opening the show, Kaluuya discussed racism in the UK and US. “People ask me what’s worse, British racism or American racism,” he told the studio audience in New York. “Let me put it this way, British racism is so bad white people left. They wanted to be free, free to create their own kind of racisms. “That’s why they invented Australia, South Africa and Boston.”
