Princess Michael of Kent's racist jewelry greets Meghan

Britain's Princess Michael of Kent

According to The Cut, Princess Michael - the wife of the Queen's cousin - wore a racist brooch to the lunch.

While they were speaking, do you think Meghan noticed the brooch that Princess Michael of Kent (can we call her something else for f-ck's sake?) was wearing? This means participating in a lot of ceremonial engagements, such as the Queen's annual Christmas lunch, which Markle recently attended with Harry. When her choice of accessory hit the headlines, especially since Meghan is half Black, she issued an apology saying she's "very sorry and distressed that it has caused offence" and the brooch was a gift she's worn many times without controversy.

"Blackamoor" art was popular in 18th century Europe, but today it's considered racially insensitive at best, and more often just flat-out racist.

The brooch depicts a dark-skinned man wearing a turban and is a piece of blackamoor jewelry, which can be seen as a symbol of racial conquest. Some believe the images fetishize slaves of African descent. 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!

But, what did they expect her to wear for her official engagement photos to an actual Prince? Princess Michael of Kent apparently spoke to Meghan yesterday. A source told the gossip news website that she vowed never to wear it again.

Markle, whose mother is black, will be the first self-identified biracial person to become a high-ranking member of the royal family when she marries Harry in May.

She later attempted to defend herself when asked about the incident, telling ITV, "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".

Approximately 50 members of the Royal Family were in attendance for the annual luncheon - the first one attended by Meghan Markle, who will Wednesday Prince Harry in May.

"I always knew that when people who aren't like us claim that hereditary rank is not part of human nature, they must be wrong".
