Prince Harry says he didn’t know unconscious bias existed ‘despite my education and upbringing’ until he ‘walked a day in Meghan’s shoes’ as he speaks to anti-racism campaigner who rescued white BLM counter-protester
- Prince Harry, 36, admits he grew up not understanding unconscious bias
- Said ‘walking a week’ in wife Meghan Markle’s shoes helped reveal the issue
Prince Harry reveals the ‘upbringing and education’ that he had meant he had no idea about unconscious bias and that meeting wife Meghan Markle helped him understand.
The Duke of Sussex, 36, spoke about racism in an interview with activist Patrick Hutchinson for GQ magazine.
He said: ‘Unconscious bias, from my understanding, having the upbringing and the education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed. And then, sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realise it, especially then living a day or a week in my wife’s shoes.’
