Royal Wears Racist Brooch to Queen's Christmas Lunch with Meghan Markle

Markle, who is engaged to marry Prince Harry in May of next year, spent her first Christmas with the royals at Buckingham Palace this week.

The image sparked a strong reaction from commentators on Twitter who spotted the "racist jewellery" and feared that it might cause offence to the newest addition to the royal family, who has described herself as bi-racial.

Update 12/22: A rep for Princess Michael of Kent says she's "very sorry and distressed" that she wore the blackamoor brooch to the Queen's Christmas luncheon, TMZ reports.

Soon she will be forced to share Kensington Palace grounds-a small territory of the universe which the royals colonized and froze space-time somewhere between 1700 and 1950-with Prince Harry's fiancée of-gasp-the British colony of America.

Princess Michael of Kent, 72, was snapped arriving at Buckingham Palace with a blackamoor brooch pinned to her shoulder.

Princess Michael, second right, and her husband, Prince Michael, attend the 2007 edition of Royal Ascot with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla.




A close-up of Princess Michael's brooch.Splash News Awam Amkpa, associate professor of Drama and Africana Studies at NYU, confirmed that Princess Michael's brooch is indeed a Blackamoor.

"We received a request from the royal family to send a draff".

Meghan Markle's couture gown may be worth an eye-watering £56,000, but her frugal fans have already found a cut-price alternative. Elite Brits I used to know said they "didn't have a race problem" in the UK. In 2004, she was said to have told a group of African-Americans at a NY restaurant to "go back to the colonies", according to People. Unfortunately, it's a secret and I cannot give more details about the design, "said a spokesman for the fashion house".

"I travelled on African buses".

In a subsequent TV interview, in which she attempted to defend her remarks she made matters worse, referring to African people as "adorable" as she insisted she was not a racist. I wanted to be a writer.
