Adjoa Andoh, an actress of Bridgerton fame, has stated that her remarks regarding the Royal Family during King Charles’ Coronation, which provoked anger online, were not meant to be offensive.

In Bridgerton, the actress who portrays Lady Danbury claims she “didn’t mean to upset anyone” when she commented on how “terribly white” the Buckingham Palace balcony was during a live television appearance.

Adjoa, 60, made the remarks that provoked a massive response online when speaking during ITV’s coverage of the King’s Coronation, which saw peaceful demonstrators and safety volunteers detained.

Adjoa talked about the time Charles and Camilla waved at their subjects from the balcony of Buckingham Palace together with other family members while discussing the newly crowned king with Mylenne Klass.

“We have gone from the rich diversity of the Abbey to a terribly white balcony,” Adjoa mused when speaking to Tom Bradby and Julie Etchingham.

“I am very struck by that,” the former Casualty actress continued. “I am also looking at those younger generations and thinking: ‘What are the nuances that they will inhabit when they grow?’

Adjoa’s remarks provoked some response, with Royal Family supporters and other right-wing pundits criticizing the mother-of-three.

The Bridgerton actress has subsequently addressed the criticism and stated that she didn’t want to incite such indignation.

“‘I think I upset a few people yesterday,” Adjoa told Paddy O’Connell on BBC Radio 4 this morning.

“I was talking about the day and how marvellous it was and then looking at the balcony at the end and suddenly going: ‘Oh it’s so white!’ because the day had been so mixed and I didn’t mean to upset anybody.”
