  • Princess Michael apologizes for blackamoor brooch worn to lunch with Meghan Markle

Pointing out the brooch, Lainey Gossip wrote: 'While they were speaking, do you think Meghan noticed the brooch that Princess Michael of Kent was wearing?

Princess Michael of Kent (wife of Prince Michael of Kent, Queen Elizabeth II's first cousin) arrived at the Queen's Christmas luncheon on Wednesday wearing a blackamoor brooch on her coat, reports Harper's Bazaar. But when people saw the brooch she made a decision to wear to the event, tongues started wagging. Hopefully, the rest of her experience wasn't as eyebrow-raising as it must have been when she met with Princess Michael. The "Suits" actress was attending the Queen's annual Christmas lunch for the first time.

She has also been quoted in 1986 as saying that she came from a "better background than anyone else who's married into the royal family since the war, excepting Prince Philip".

It was the first time Meghan was meeting some of the distant Royal relatives, which was bound to be a nervous occasion.

"I even pretended years ago to be an African, a half-caste African, but because of my light eyes I did not get away with it, but I dyed my hair black", she saidin the interview, according to the Guardian. Morphing from Latina when I was dressed in red, to African-American when in mustard yellow; my closet filled with fashionable frocks to make me look as racially varied as an Eighties Benetton poster.




Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were confirmed as an item, Markle has been subjected to racially insensitive attacks ranging from offensive to downright vulgar.

In 2004, she reportedly told a table of black diners at a NY restaurant to "go back to the colonies". I wanted to be a writer.

A spokesperson for the princess told TMZ that she's "very sorry and distressed" over the controversy regarding the brooch.

Prince Harry and his fiancee went to Buckingham Palace today for a Royal knees-up with the Queen and 50 other Royals.

"I always knew that when people who aren't like us claim that hereditary rank is not part of human nature, they must be wrong".
