Prince Harry has admitted he didn’t know there was unconscious bias until he “ lived in my wife’s shoes for a day or a week ” after marrying Meghan Markle.
The Duke of Sussex, 36, spoke about racism in an interview with activist Patrick Hutchinson for GQ magazine and admitted that his ‘upbringing and training’ did not equip him to understand the issue.
He said, ‘Once you realize if you’re feeling a little uncomfortable, it’s up to you to go out and educate yourself, because ignorance is no longer an excuse.
And unconscious bias, from my understanding, the upbringing and education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed. And then, sad as it may be to say, it took me many, many years to realize, especially when I lived in my wife’s shoes for a day or a week.
