Princess Michael of Kent sparked fury after wearing a “racist” blackamoor brooch to the Queen’s annual Christmas lunch. Blackamoor is a style of artwork dating from the 18th century that is usually found in sculpture, jewelry and textiles in which black men and women are often depicted as slaves.

Outraged social media users slammed the royal for her choice in jewelry. It’s not the first time the royal — dubbed Princess Pushy — has been embroiled in a racial storm.

In 2004, she was accused of insulting black party guests at a New York restaurant by allegedly telling them to “go back to the colonies” in a row over noise.

Markle has spoken out about racism after being subjected to years of prejudice by people unaware of her heritage.
