The royal, who is married to the Queen's cousin Prince Michael, wore what the Brits call a "blackamoor brooch" on her coat as she was driven into Buckingham Palace on Wednesday. The "Suits" actress was attending the Queen's annual Christmas lunch for the first time.
However, blogger Lainey Gossip noticed something about one royal in particular attending the event: Princess Michael of Kent'sand her brooch.
"It's disheartening", Meghan told the BBC previously about the racism she has seen since she and Harry officially announced their relationship. Depictions of the black Muslims in subservient roles first became popular in European art in the 18th century. The piece of jewelry was apparently a gift, which the royal has worn "many times before, without controversy", according to the site. The accessory is a piece of blackamoor jewelry, which fetishize images of slavery. The brooch in question features a dark-skinned man wearing what appears to be either a turban or a crown.
Since then, headlines about her joining the Royal family and moving to London can be seen nearly anywhere.

It's unclear whether the princess wore the brooch to intentionally make an offensive statement, or whether it was a clueless decision wear the tone-deaf accessory.
Princess Michael quickly earned criticism on social media.
I don't want to take away from the excitement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's official engagement photos. And a woman who once told black people to "go back to the colonies" at a restaurant decided that would be what she would wear to the Queen's Christmas lunch, where the Queen's grandson was introducing his fiancée, who is biracial, to the extended family for the first time. I wanted experiences from Cape Town to right up in northern Mozambique.
"You know it's a shame that that is the climate in this world to focus that much on that or that that would be discriminatory in that sense, but I think...at the end of the day I'm really just proud of who I am and where I come from, and we have never put any focus on that. We've just focused on who we are as a couple".
