we should say bye bye to old beliefs about ethnicity and heritage

There are brits whose ancestors had been in India and had affairs with indian women or men.

Thats a fact

Even PRINCESS DI had indian descent.

HOLLY JOHNSON of FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD and even CLIFF RICHARD

SO THERE is a chance that also victoria might have some indian blood in her

With her old nose pre surgery if she came out and said she was part black I would totally believe her.

Add a clearer picture where her face shows?

LucarioCooper September 12, 2015 at 6:43 pm

Nothing strange about it.

neiltennant July 12, 2015 at 4:34 pm

on her older photos with the old nose and face she looked like a latina

neiltennant June 9, 2015 at 1:39 am

Her grand grand grandfather was Carl Pfaender.

Maybe he was a German Jew.

she looks very exotic for a white woman. she looks part black and native american. she could pass for a multiracial brazilian or puerto rican

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:19 am

Can I quote your username? – WTF

So if someone is “exotic”, they are automatically part black or Native American? And what Native American? This woman is from England. Gee…

If anything, you can say she is Portuguese or Italian. The others are a stretch….

England is very multicultural and some Caribbeans from ex British colonies are immigrating there. Plus UK does in contrast to Europe have a lot of black people in there.

EVEN LADY DI had indian ancestry

there is a chance that she is of indian or african descent

She’s probably 1/8th black, no more.

andrew February 25, 2014 at 7:36 am

she’s white, stfu

Check7t February 25, 2014 at 10:58 pm

She looks part black, not the first person to notice it either.

Jordan April 11, 2015 at 1:45 pm

She can’t be part black, she is English. Black people have not lived in europe until very recent years. Black slaves were not taken directly to England.

@Jordan

I don’t know what Victoria true background is, and I’m not saying she is or isn’t part black. However this comment you made is completely wrong. It’s obvious you didn’t even try to check things out before you type this .Black people have always been in Europe, they were the first humans there(based on current info)

Kimmel March 17, 2016 at 12:38 pm

Parts of history have been ‘whitewashed’. Wouldn’t want it getting out that great inventions, traditions and ideas belong to other races.

crunty May 2, 2016 at 1:44 pm

There have been black people in europe for over 2000 years, as a consequence of the Roman Empire. There were black people on the island of Britain when it was an integral part of the Western Roman Empire. England, Wales and Scotland didn’t exist then.

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:33 pm

Yes. England is becoming more multicultural than ever before and even back during the early 1900s considering how Ryan Giggs the guy whose 1/4th black was born in UK.

I could see her being part black and I wouldn’t bat an eye if she claimed too.

Check7t February 24, 2014 at 11:14 pm

Wide nose, big lips, overall she has that SSA features.

Multiethnicchick April 16, 2015 at 6:46 am

her lips arent’ big and her nose is protrusive just like white persons. The lighting doesn’t really show her features but she’s obviously a white woman. People are so stupid these days. They probably see a tan white girl with curly hair and they’ll say “must be part black” idiots. I guess that’s what happens when Hitler esque standards of whiteness take over

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:35 pm

Have seen her nose before the surgery? It might be bridged sure but the nostrils looked odd.

Btw there were rumours online before if she was mixed and while people argued it was her tan a lot of users mentioned her features.
