Harry brought it up at his opening IG speech that there would competition between he and the wife since, "she found out she was Nigerian, she would be rooting for the Nigerian team!" Race card again....he received a flat reaction.
Wikipedia entry for the author Georgina Lawton:
"Georgina Lawton (born 1992 in Shepherd's Bush, London) is a British-Irish-Nigerian writer whose personal narrative is the subject of a non-fiction book: Raceless: In Search of Family, Identity, and the Truth About Where I Belong (ISBN 978-0063009486). Part-memoir, part-socio-political discussion, the book focuses on the construct of racial identity in the homes exploring Lawton's experience of being mixed-black in a white home with two white parents without knowing why, and discovering she was the product of a brief liaison between her mother and her birth father. Taking a DNA test after the latter died showed her to be greater than 40% Nigerian. "
"..........The disconnect Lawton felt increased as she grew older, leading to Black communities in Nicaragua's Corn Islands, Cuba, Dominicana and Brooklyn where she travelled. It was while in the Corn Islands that Lawton confronted her mother back in the UK by phone with the results of her third DNA test, showing her to be 43% Nigerian, resulting in a flat refusal by her mother to acknowledge the taboo topic of her birth."
Sounds rather familiar.
