She is thought to have been introduced to Ms Markle, who was attending her first such lunch after her engagement to Harry was announced last month.

Meghan Markle isn't even part of the family yet, but already a member of the Royals is being criticized for a perceived racist slight during her first meeting with Prince Harry's bride-to-be. Now, some may say it's nothing and may even own brooches like this, however, many feel offended by the Princess' choice of jewelry.

The Queen's first cousin was photographed in the auto while wearing a brooch in a "Blackamoor" style.

A close-up of Princess Michael's brooch.Splash News Awam Amkpa, associate professor of Drama and Africana Studies at NYU, confirmed that Princess Michael's brooch is indeed a Blackamoor.

Lubomirski, a former assistant to Mario Testino, famed for his photos of Harry's mother Princess Diana, took the pictures this week at the royal retreat of Frogmore House, near Windsor Castle, west of London, where the couple are due to marry on May 19. "Markle began her essay saying: "'What are you?' A question I get asked every week of my life, often every day". "I'm half black and half white, '" she wrote. "Now you've given me evolutionary proof!" she reportedly said.


Meanwhile, others joked that Princess Michael has history in this department. In 2004 she was accused of telling a group of Black diners at a restaurant in NY to "go back to the colonies".

The princess strongly denied the allegations, claiming she said that she would be "ready to go back to the colonies".

"Seriously, not every artistic depiction of Africans are racist".

The pin depicted a black figure in a gold robe and headdress. Morphing from Latina when I was dressed in red, to African-American when in mustard yellow; my closet filled with fashionable frocks to make me look as racially varied as an Eighties Benetton poster. I wanted to be a writer. 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. The items of jewellery are valued at £10,000 or more.
