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

Princess Michael says she's sorry the racially insensitive brooch she wore to the Queen's lunch - attended by Meghan Markle - was offensive. and we're told she vows never to wear it again.

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 Californian royal-in-waiting is wearing a one-of-a-kind sheer couture dress exclusively revealed by MailOnline to be worth a staggering £56,000. But when people saw the brooch she chose to wear to the event, tongues started wagging. The figures are sculptures and other depictions of exoticised figures, including images of servants or slaves, which were used in European art in the Early Modern period.

Since then, headlines about her joining the Royal family and moving to London can be seen nearly anywhere.

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.

Meghan, whose father, Thomas Markle is white, and mother, Doria Ragland, is black, has previously been vocal about her experiences of racism growing up and within the acting world.

Princess Michael of Kent, the wife of the Queen's first cousin Prince Michael of Kent, was pictured at Buckingham Palace wearing a "blackamoor" jewelry piece featuring the bust of a black person with a gold crown and colorful crystals. And a woman who once told black people to "go back to the colonies" at a restaurant decided that would be what she would wear to the Queen's Christmas lunch, where the Queen's grandson was introducing his fiancée, who is biracial, to the extended family for the first time. And this is why, even if you want to call her a scheming prince-digger, I'm here for it. Prince Harry and Markle are set to Wednesday at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018. "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". "We've just focused on who we are as a couple".
