Since then, headlines about her joining the Royal family and moving to London can be seen nearly anywhere.
Princess Michael's decision to wear the brooch comes as Markle and Harry's engagement has renewed discussions about the ongoing culture of racism and classism in British high society.
Born Marie Christine, the Princess is married to Queen's first cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, who is the grandson of King George V. Much like the scandal involving the marriage of Wallis Simpson and Edward VII, the prince had to abdicate his title in order to marry the Princess, because she was divorcee.
Princess Michael of Kent, 72, was snapped arriving at Buckingham Palace with a blackamoor brooch pinned to her shoulder. The jewelry, dubbed "blackamoor" jewelry is a bust of a black person adorned with a gold crown and colorful crystals. Dolce & Gabbana caused an uproar in 2012 when it included blackamoor heads on a pair of earrings and on fabric prints in its Spring 2013 collection.
"The brooch was a gift & has been worn many times before".
Princess apologizes after wearing brooch deemed 'racist' to lunch with Meghan Markle
It was the first time Meghan was meeting some of the distant Royal relatives, which was bound to be a nervous occasion.
In 2004, she reportedly told a table of black diners at a NY restaurant to "go back to the colonies". Princess Michael of Kent apparently spoke to Meghan yesterday. The Princess has denied making this comment while even stating that she wanted to be part-African.
"I travelled on African buses.I wanted experiences from Cape Town to right up in northern Mozambique". And this is why, even if you want to call her a scheming prince-digger, I'm here for it. 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", she continued.
Prince Harry and his fiancee went to Buckingham Palace today for a Royal knees-up with the Queen and 50 other Royals.
On May 19th, 2018, on Friday, in the chapel of St. George at Windsor Castle, will take place the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
