“Racist” Princess sparks controversy at Meghan Markle’s first introductory lunch

British princess Michael of Kent apologized for wearing a brooch considered “racist” to Meghan Markle’s first meeting with the royal family. She wore this blackamoor brooch on her left shoulder to the queen’s annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. The Princess raised eyebrows during this first major event for soon-to-be-royal Meghan Markle, who is bi-racial. The brooch the princess wore featured a black figure donning a gold headdress and robe.

Blackamoor art and jewellery romanticizes the times of slavery and is considered racially insensitive today.
