While racism worries have rocked the Royal Family for some time, particularly after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle raised concerns during their Oprah interview, the family has mostly been silent.

Of course, Prince William was quick to tell reporters that the royals are “very much not racist” after March’s headline interview, but Queen Elizabeth has chosen not to speak out.

However, a senior palace aide, Kenneth Olisa, the first Black lord-lieutenant of London, said the family supports Black Lives Matter.

“The answer is easily yes,” he said in a preview clip for a Channel 4 News interview.

BLM expressed surprise at Olisa’s comments, telling The Guardian that “actions speak louder than words.”

“We were surprised to learn the Queen is a BLM supporter,” the full statement reads. “But we welcome anyone that agrees with our goal of dismantling white supremacy. Of course, actions speak louder than words. The Queen sits on a throne made from colonial plunder. Until she gives back all the stolen gold and diamonds from the Commonwealth and pays reparations, these are nothing more than warm words.”

Buckingham Palace has chosen not to further comment.
