Viral photos showing two women who were allowed to drive a luxury SUV into Beijing’s Forbidden City have triggered a national furore.
Vehicles have been banned from the historic complex since 2013 and the incident has raised questions about why the women, one of whom claimed to be related to senior officials, were permitted to bring the vehicle into the site, parts of which were once reserved for emperors and their family.
The Palace Museum admitted that a vehicle had been allowed to enter the grounds on Monday. In a statement, it said: “We feel deeply distressed and sincerely apologise to the public. We will … stop it from happening again.”
The debacle also reinforced a widespread public perception that certain people in China are treated like royalty and granted privileges because of their family connections.
