Meghan Markle: Prince Harry’s fiance

Photographs of the 72-year-old Princess, who’s married to the Queen’s cousin, en route to Buckingham Palace Wednesday show her sporting a “blackamoor” brooch.

The statement pin, set against Princess Michael’s snow white coat, depicted a black figure in a gold robe and headdress. The style of the accessory is controversial because it fetishizes dark-skinned slaves and servants.

But it’s not the first time that Princess Michael has set off a racial fury. In 2004, she was accused of telling a group of black people in a New York restaurant to “go back to the colonies.” She denied the claims at the time.

Princess Michael’s spokesman told TMZ that she’s “very sorry and distressed” about wearing the racially insensitive pin. The Royal reportedly plans to retire the brooch.
