"Princess Michael is distressed & very sorry that it has caused offence", a spokesperson told the Daily Mail.

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's unclear whether the princess wore the brooch to intentionally make an offensive statement, or whether it was a clueless decision wear the tone-deaf accessory.

Princess Michael of Kent, wife of Queen Elizabeth's first cousin Prince Michael of Kent, arrived to the lunch at Buckingham Palace with a brooch that appeared to be a "blackamoor" jewelry that depicted a black person with a gold crown and crystals.

Dolce & Gabbana faced backlash after featuring blackamoor designs in their 2013 Spring collection.




"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".

One member of the royal family is under fire and apologizing for an insensitive brooch she wore to meet Meghan Markle at the Queen's Christmas lunch this week. Princess Michael of Kent might want to give that letter a close read.

It would be easier to look the other way if the princess didn't have history of racism-but she unfortunately does. The publication also notes that this is not the Princess' first offence in the race department, she allegedly told a group of Black diners in NY to "go back to the colonies" in the year 2004. I traveled on African buses.

Neither Kensington or Buckingham Palace has released an official comment at this time. I wanted experiences from Cape Town to right up in northern Mozambique.

On May 19th, 2018, on Friday, in the chapel of St. George at Windsor Castle, will take place the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. "We've just focused on who we are as a couple".
