In the past, King Charles has expressed “personal sorrow” for the suffering caused by the Atlantic Slave Trade but has not formally apologized.
Back in April, the King co-operated with a study examining the relationship between the British monarchy and the historic enslavement of Africans in its colonies.
Reportedly, a British newspaper found a “previously unseen document that shows an infamous slave trader transferring slaves to King William III back in 1689.”
Now, British Caribbean colonies plan to send letters demanding an apology and reparations for slavery to the British royal family and other institutions involved in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
