Mr Bolton, 54, is already facing calls to resign after he left his wife for 25-year-old Jo Marney.

The Mail on Sunday revealed shocking messages in which Ms Marney says that Prince Harry’s ‘black American’ fiancee will ‘taint’ the Royal Family with ‘her seed’ and pave the way for a ‘black king’.

Ms Marney also says that she would never have sex with ‘a negro’ because they are ‘ugly’.

She was immediately suspended from UKIP after the newspaper alerted party chiefs to her grossly offensive comments.

Bolton’s wife Tatiana last week told the Sunday Mirror how he had abandoned the family at Christmas to be with his mistress.

The former Army officer left the mother of his two young children, 42-yearold Tatiana Smurova, for Ms Marney, whom he met shortly before Christmas.

In Ms Marney’s messages, which she sent to a male friend just three weeks before starting her relationship with Mr Bolton, she blasts Harry’s engagement to Los Angeles-born Markle – who will marry Harry on May 19 – on the grounds that she is a ‘black American’.

Ms Marney also describes Ms Markle, whose mother is black and whose father is white, as ‘a scrubber’ and a ‘gender equality t***’ who is ‘obsessed with race’ and a ‘dumb little commoner’.

Referring to ethnic minorities in general, Ms Marney writes that they are ‘pushing their way to the top slowly slowly. Next will be a Muslim PM. And a black king’. 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’.

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. Not Africa".

After her friend accuses her of being racist, she writes: "Lol so what... Not wanting other races and cultures to invade your own culture doesn’t mean I hate their race. Just means I don’t want their cultures invading mine."

After being confronted with her texts, Ms Marney apologised for her comments which she claimed had been ‘taken out of context’.

In a statement, she said: "I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used. 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.

"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. I cannot sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so."

Mr Oakden said: "In light of messages that have been brought to my attention, I have taken the decision to immediately suspend her party membership pending an investigation.

"Ukip does not, has not and never will condone racism."
