Well, this is going to be an interesting three year experiment in multiculturalism.
Actually, I have no worries. Darkies served their masters well as “House Niggers” in the antbellum South.
The Major will do a fine job, I’m sure.
The African is a born servant.
The Queen has chosen a Ghanaian-born Household Cavalry officer to be her next aide.
It is understood Major Nana Kofi Twumasi-Ankrah will be the royal household’s first black equerry, a role which requires him to support the monarch at official engagements such as regional visits and audiences at Buckingham Palace.
The Sunday Times said Maj Twumasi-Ankrah, a 38-year-old Afghanistan veteran known as TA to his friends, moved to the UK from Ghana with his parents in 1982 and studied at Queen Mary University of London and the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.
He will start the role later this year, the paper said.
The Queen’s Equerry is an officer from one of the armed services, who takes on the role for three years.
Twumasi-Ankrah, 38, told the Sunday Times that as a young child he used to watch the trooping of the colour with fascination.
He said: “I would have never imagined that one day I’d command the regiment which I’d fallen in love with.
“From what I’ve seen in the UK, our cultures really do mix and if I’m not a good example of that I really don’t know what is.”
