According to a new report, there were some very problematic hiring practices at Buckingham Palace until at least the late 1960s.

According to a Guardian report released Wednesday, the Queen’s Chief Financial Officer made it clear in 1968 that it was « in fact It was not customary to appoint colored immigrants or foreigners « to clerical roles in the royal household (minorities, however, were allowed to be employed as domestic servants). The newspaper named documents from the British National Archives as a source of information.

This wasn’t the only terrifying revelation in The Guardian’s report, however. The documents also showed that as late as the 1970s palace aides tried to obtain exemptions from laws prohibiting discriminatory hiring practices for the royal household.

« Claims based on a second-hand report of conversations over 50 years ago should not be used to draw conclusions about modern events or operations, » a Buckingham Palace spokesman told E! Messages in response to the report. « The principles of Crown Application and Crown Consent are long established and well known. »

Buckingham Palace chose not to comment on the hiring policy for the Guardian story, but said records showed minorities were employed at the palace in the 1990s (the palace claimed that as of that time there was no record of racial Backgrounds).
