LONDON — The British Council, which promotes British culture and values worldwide, said Tuesday it has started disciplinary procedures against an employee who went on a social media rant against Prince George.

The woman posted obscene comments about George – who just celebrated his third birthday – on Facebook, using expletives and calling the youngster an example of “white privilege living off public money.”

She also made fun of George’s facial expressions.

The council said in a statement that the comment was made on a “private social media account” and does not represent the council’s views and values.
