Princess Michael's history of racist and racially insensitive behaviour added further to many people's impression that the brooch was making an unpleasant statement. The brooch in question features a dark-skinned man wearing what appears to be either a turban or a crown.

Another asked: "What exactly is the significance of the brooch worn by Princess Michael of Kent to the Queen's luncheon?"

The former Suits star was seen attending the royal event earlier this week, however one of Harry's family has now issued a formal apology after she was seen wearing a controversial blackamoor brooch.

In addition to announcing the date of the couple's wedding ceremony to sketches of her dress floating across the internet, Markle attending Christmas lunch with the Queen and other relatives is a huge step Markle's relationship with the royal family.

"I travelled on African buses.I wanted experiences from Cape Town to right up in northern Mozambique".

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. This isn't the first time, however, the princess has been accused of racism.

She also told the Mirror: "With Harry frowning seriously beside her, Meghan suddenly sits looking rather small and childlike".

In 2004, she allegedly told a group of black diners in NY to "go back to the colonies" and later tried to prove she wasn't racist by telling the story of the time "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".

"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", she saidin the interview, according to the Guardian. And this is why, even if you want to call her a scheming prince-digger, I'm here for it.

"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".
