Trouble In The Land Of Royals Already? Princess Michael Wears Racially Insensitive Broach During Christmas Lunch With Meghan Markle (PHOTO)

Things might have been a little awkward at Meghan Markle’s first Christmas Lunch hosted by the Queen. One of the Royals, Princess Michael, showed up to the event wearing a piece of jewelry that “disparages people of color.”

She arrived at Buckingham Palace wearing a Blackamoor broach…

“It’s an 18th Century antique that many think signifies racial conquest. It 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.”

As you all know, Meghan (who just got engaged to Prince Harry) is biracial and has been outspoken about her experiences with racism. According to TMZ, she did not sit at the same table as Princess Michael, but it’s likely she saw her, and if she saw her…she definitely noticed that piece of jewelry. It would be impossible to miss.

It’s worth noting that Princess Michael has been accused of racism in the past. Back in 2004, she allegedly said to a group of African-American diners at a restaurant in New York, “Go back to the colonies.”

She denied this allegation, saying she really loves “these people.”

“I had this adventure with these absolutely adorable, special people and to call me racist: It’s a knife through the heart because I really love these people. I even pretended years ago to be an African, a half-caste African.”

I think Princess Michael’s wedding invitation might get lost in the mail…
