"Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused", she said.

Ukip leader, Henry Bolton, who's relationship with Jo is under investigation by the party, confirmed that she was "immediately" suspended following the claims.

The prince issued a strongly worded statement condemning the "outright sexism and racism" in some comments about Markle, and said some articles with "racial undertones" crossed the line.

Peter Whittle, leader of UKIP's delegation in the London Assembly, also called for Ms Marney to be "expelled" for the "disgraceful remarks".

Ukip chairman Paul Oakden released a statement and explained their decision to suspend Marney. Bolton's may also be suspended from Ukip following a series of investigations.

Ukip's National Executive Committee is set to meet on Thursday to decide the party leader's fate.

Calls for the suspension and expulsion of Jo Marney, who describes herself as a "Presenter".

Led by Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage, UKIP won almost 4 million votes in 2015, 12.6 percent of those cast, on its anti-European Union platform, putting it at the forefront of British politics even though it managed to win only one seat in parliament.

Meghan Markle was recently criticized by Jo Marney for her African-American roots.

'No offence was intended and, again, I apologise unreservedly for any such offence or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of Ukip my friends, family and loved ones.

"I have disappointed them all and let myself down".

The ex-model - who has remained in touch with the friend she texted since starting her relationship with Mr Bolton - tells him that she would not have sex "with a negro". "I can not sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so".

Since news of his relationship broke, Mr Bolton has repeatedly insisted that he will not resign as he is convinced another leadership contest would "cripple the party".

On Sunday he was accused on Twitter of being in Ms Marney's company when he appeared on television in mid-October.

Other party members instead resisted the idea of sacking their leader, concerned about the future of a party that has endured three leadership elections and a shrinking popular support in recent months, since founder Nigel Farage stepped down after the Brexit referendum in 2016 delivered a majority for the "Leave" side for which he had campaigned.

Bill Etheridge, a Ukip MEP, urged him: "Go now". He has failed to lift Ukip's poll ratings above 4 per cent.
