Ukip leader Henry Bolton's new glamour model girlfriend has been accused of making racist remarks about Prince Harry's bride-to-be Meghan Markle and suspended from the party.

The 54-year-old Ukip leader left his 42-year-old wife after he met Marney shortly before Christmas.

The Mail on Sunday published a series of messages sent by Ms Marney to a friend in which she made offensive comments about Ms Markle and black people.

In a statement to the paper, Ms Marney said she apologised "unreservedly" for the "shocking language" used in the messages, but said they had been "taken out of context".

Bolton said Sunday that he had suspended Marney "immediately upon us receiving this information", according to The Telegraph.

"He must go, he must go quickly, he must go as quietly as possible", he said.

Ms Marney wrote that Ms Markle, a U.S. actress whose mother is black and father is white, will "taint" the royal family, the paper quoted one of her messages as saying.

Marney doesn't hold an official post in the party.

Peter Whittle, a UKIP member of the London Assembly, tweeted: "These are disgraceful remarks".

If Mr Bolton resigned or is sacked by UKIP, the party will elect its fifth leader in 18 months.

UKIP's Bill Etheridge, a member of the European parliament, said: "The time has come for Henry Bolton to resign as leader of UKIP".

The Ukip leader confirmed that he had a "change in my relationship status" in recent weeks, although he denied reports that it had involved "a clandestine affair with a young lady who happens also to be a member of Ukip".

Bolton is set to face a crunch meeting over his future as Ukip's National Executive Committee will convene on Thursday to decide his fate.

During the exchange, Ms Marney - who is from Kent and describes herself as an actor and music journalist - also complains that there is "an immigration problem", saying: "This is Britain".

Mr Oakden declined to give his own views on Mr Bolton's situation, but said the party needs to be "behind our leader 100% in taking that battle (for Brexit) forward".

After Marney's text publications, some UKIP politicians were calling for Bolton's resignation, Reuters reported.

When a reply to one of her texts suggested her comments were racist, she added "so what?" and said she did not want other races invading her culture. The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context. "Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused", she added.
