Princess Michael apologises for wearing 'racist' brooch during lunch with Meghan Markle

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!

Blackamoor jewellery and art dates back to the 1700s and was extremely popular at the time.

Many on social media have noticed and criticised the choice of jewellery as a fashion statement in front of Ms Markle, who is the future wife of Prince Harry.

Kensington Palace has released the official engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the royal-to-be's dress was truly fit for a princess!

Update 12/22: A rep for Princess Michael of Kent says she's "very sorry and distressed" that she wore the blackamoor brooch to the Queen's Christmas luncheon, TMZ reports. The brooch was a tinged blackamoor pin that many believe stands for "racial conquest". Hopefully, the rest of her experience wasn't as eyebrow-raising as it must have been when she met with Princess Michael. Dolce & Gabbana caused an uproar in 2012 when it included blackamoor heads on a pair of earrings and on fabric prints in its Spring 2013 collection.

California Unemployment Rate Drops to Lowest Level Since 1970s
The 235,000 average for the last two weeks is similar to the four-week average, with the level historically low. The employment to population ratio estimate of 61.7 percent remained above the US average of 60.1 percent.

The American actress's mum Doria Ragland is black and has often spoken of racism she experienced as a child and as an adult.

Princess Michael is a controversial figure who has been accused of racism in the past.

Reportedly back in 2004 while dining in New York City, the Princess told several African-American diners to "go back to the colonies". 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". Shortly after this event the Princess told a reporter onITV1 that she couldn't possibly be racist because "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".

"But I think you know at the end of the day I'm really just proud of who I am and where I come from, and we have never put any focus on that".

Queen Elizabeth's 33-year-old grandson, Harry, fifth-in-line to the throne, and Markle, who stars in the US TV legal drama Suits, announced their engagement last month.
