Princess Michael Sorry for Racist Brooch ... I'm Going to Retire It

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Princess Michael of Kent attended the Queen's Christmas lunch wearing what appears to be a Blackamoor brooch.

Most often, Blackamoor arts included small sculptures of slaves holding plates and trays for practical use around the house, but also include jewelry, like the brooch Princess Michael chose to wear for the Queen's lunch. We're told it was a gift she's worn many times before, without controversy.

Twitter users were having none of it, with people accusing Princess Michael of Kent of everything from rudeness to racism.

An interesting choice for her to wear to her first meeting with Harry's biracial fiancé to say the least.

For the night, Princess Michael wore a sizable blackamoor brooch on her left shoulder.

You can just see the little brooch here. The African figure is typically depicted with a turban, dressed in lavish jewels and are commonly fixed in positions of servitude-such as footmen or waiters.

She then added, "I traveled on African buses".

Meghan and her future husband, Prince Harry, rolled into the annual royal pre-Christmas dinner looking as regal as ever.

Defending her "colonies" comment in 2004, Princess Michael told ITV she hadn't realised it was a "pejorative term in America" and attempted to call the incident a "misunderstanding". In 2004, she allegedly told a group of African-Americans at a NY restaurant to "go back to the colonies".

Markle is no stranger to racist responses to her presence in the royal family. Mark Cuthbert _ The Royal family just needs to go right ahead and withdraw Princess Michael of Kent's invitation to #PrinceHarry and #MeghanMarkle's wedding because people feel like sis tried it! I had this adventure with these absolutely adorable, special people and to call me racist: "it's a knife through the heart because I really love these people".

Last year, Prince Harry issued a statement after an onslaught of racist and sexist remarks were made towards Markle (whose mother, Doria Radlan, is African-American) when their relationship became public.

On Christmas day itself, Berthelsen said there is more of a focus on the holiday's religious aspect and Markle will join the family in attending a morning church service.
