Whites a minority in Britain’s largest cities
White Britons no longer form a majority in the two largest English cities for the first time in history.

According to the latest census data , the proportion of white natives in the capital London has fallen from 45 to 37 percent over the past ten years. In the second largest city, Birmingham, it fell from 52 to 43 percent over the same period.
Overall, 81,7 percent of citizens in England and Wales identified themselves as White Britons. In 2011 it was still 86 percent. That equates to a drop in the white population of half a million people.
Asians are second largest ethnic group
The second largest ethnic group in England are Asians. In 2011, they made up around 7,5 percent of the total population. Last year it was 9,3 percent. The black population has increased from 1,8 to 2,5 percent over the same period. That corresponds to about 600 000 people. The group included people who identified themselves as “Black, Black British, Black Welsh, Carib and African”.
The number of people who identify as “mixed ethnicity” has also increased in recent years. Around 924 000 people also stated that they were neither black, white nor Asian and therefore belonged to another ethnic minority.
Christians are in the minority for the first time
For the first time on record, Christians are now a minority in England and Wales. In 2011, almost 60 percent of the population still identified as such; and thus 33,3 million people. In 2021 it was 46,2 percent, or 27,5 million people.
As the survey shows, over the past ten years there has been an increase in the number of believers in all major religions in England – with the exception of Christianity. However, this remains the most common belief in England and Wales. The second most common response was that respondents said they did not belong to any religion.
Late Queen’s lady-in-waiting resigns after allegations of racism
The population replacement has had consequences, as the late Queen Elizabeth II’s lady-in-waiting, Lady Susan Hussey, discovered. She has had to resign from Buckingham Palace following allegations of racism. She had asked the head of a non-governmental organization (NGO) Sistah Space, Ngozi Fulani, where she came from. When Fulani replied “from the Sistah Space group,” Hussey replied, “No, what part of Africa are you from?”
Fulani then wrote on Twitter that she was “completely stunned” and had “mixed feelings”. The incident caused a stir both on the Internet and in the royal family. In a statement, the palace said Hussey’s statements were “unacceptable and deeply regrettable”.
According to the US news portal Page Six, a nobility expert said that Hussey was a “relic from another time”. At the same time, he emphasized that she had been “at the Queen’s side” for many years. The 83-year-old was not only respected by the recently deceased Queen, but also by “all the senior staff at Buckingham Palace”.
