Royal Apologizes for Wearing Offensive Brooch to Lunch With Meghan Markle


On Thursday, Lainey Gossip pointed out that Princess Michael of Kent wore a racially insensitive brooch to Queen Elizabeth's pre-Christmas lunch - an event also attended by Prince Harry's fiancée Meghan Markle. Now, the royal has apologized for the offensive jewelry and vowed never to wear it again.

In a Friday statement to TMZ, a spokesperson for the wife of the queen's cousin said Princess Michael was "very sorry and distressed" that she wore her Blackamoor brooch to the lunch. The spokesperson explained that the jewelry was a gift, and that Princess Michael has worn it many times in the past without controversy. Per TMZ:

The queen's pre-Christmas lunch was Markle's first holiday celebration with the royal family. Markle, whose father is white and mother is black, has been the subject of racist attacks from the British press since news of her relationship with Prince Harry broke last year. You'd hope she wouldn't have to deal with such behavior from her soon-to-be extended family as well.
