Princess Michael of Kent Apologizes for Wearing Racist Brooch While Meeting Meghan Markle

Princess Michael of Kent is very sorry for wearing a controversial brooch to Queen Elizabeth II‘s Christmas lunch, which was attended by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The member of the royal family, who is the wife of the Queen’s cousin, not only feels sorry, but she vows to never wear it again.

A spokesperson explains that she is “very sorry and distressed” for wearing the Blackamoor brooch in a statement to TMZ.

The brooch features a dark-skinned man wearing a turban. The line of jewelry is known for its depictions of people of color in positions of servitude.

A Kensington Palace-connected source tells TMZ that the brooch was not worn to intentionally insult Meghan, who is biracial, or people of color.

Princess Michael has had past controversies involving race.

    Yeah, that woman knew very well what she was doing. Will this be the first “accident” having to do with race? Absolutely not. Markle better start growing thick skin for stuff like this, was she expecting to be welcomed with open arms by the royals just because she managed to snatch Harry? She looks white but for them on the other side of the pond she is the blackest blackity black shade of black, and like Jay Z said rich n*gga, light n*gga, still n*gga.

    Gawd, Jared quoting the bottom of the barrel TMZ, like anyone speaking for the British ROYALS would ever contact that rag site directly for anything. Puhlease. Raise your standards Jared, this is embarrassing.

    I am sure that Meghan’s YEARS of experiences dealing with discrimination will greatly assist her…

  • Stoni

    I doubt that brooch offended Meghan but a dog brooch would have offended Meghan because she abandoned her dog to climb the royal ladder.

  • Tonya

    You seem to speak for people you don’t know.

  • Lili

    Racist for sure and an attention bitch.

  • Amber

    Old hag did it on purpose.

  • Honeybee

    This is the same bitch that said breastfeeding is low and disgusting! What can you expect from this white trash royal? Her and her constant missteps are only tolerated because the Queen is fond of her cousin, the idiots husband.🀭

    Nasty old bag

  • Pat Kerr

    She is sorry because it has stirred up a lot of unpleasant facts about her getting widespread media attention.. Numerous comments have made in UK papers about her own background (also divorced but with children she left behind her in Australia when she married Prince Michael) and particularly the hidden SS career of her father in removing “aryan looking” children across Europe to Germany where they were either gassed if they failed the testing or had their identities stolen forever. She and her husband have lived for free in one of the Palaces for decades and annoying the other residents, Prince Wiiliam and Prince Harry could get them kicked out.

  • Pat Kerr

    Princess Michael was a divorcee with children living in Australia when she married into the Royal family (left the children in OZ). She has forgotten about working in a beauty salon as a hairdresser and acts grander than any other member of the Royal family – hence the popular nickname Princess Pushy. She has kept the family fortunes going with a series of rich “close friends” with often shady backgrounds.

    Agree.

  • persononhere

    everyone is so easily offended on meghans behalf. she’s probably clueless what the brooch even means and likely didn’t even see this woman for more than a nanosecond. who tf cares

  • Just Saying

    The discrimination she might or might not have faced wasn’t the one of a dark-skinned black woman. She could easily pass as a white person AKA “white passing”, her REAL struggle with discrimination will start once she start living amongst the royals.

  • Tonya

    I can not speak for anyone other than myself…Background: I am a light skin black woman and I birth a blond hair blue eyed son (who looks & I guess you would say- passes for white). Although I am light skinned and my son is “white” looking we have faced REAL discrimination…

  • marsha knowles

    Is she gonna be offended by every thing and people have to tip for around her if so don’t bother to marry a ducking white man then. Love how people on here call her racist them make racial slurs towards her. The entire royal family will not changchange for any woman so get the fuck over it already

  • Tonya

    Thank you Debby…You are speaking FACTS!!!!

  • Tonya

    Hi Marsha, No one knows if she was offended… You neither I have the right to say what should or should not offend another person. I think that the main reason a lot of people are calling Princess Michael of Kent a racist…is because it is alleged that she said some racist things in the past. I have followed the Royal Family for years and I must admit I have never seen her wear this particular piece before…
