Wednesday, December 20, the annual luncheon of Christmas queen Elizabeth II was held at Buckingham Palace in the presence of members of the british royal family to the image of the princess Michael of Kent. The latter is excused for wearing a pin considered a racist for his first meeting with Meghan Markle.

Thunderclap at Buckingham Palace. On the occasion of the annual luncheon of Christmas of queen Elizabeth II and prince Charles, Meghan Markle, always accompanied by her lover, prince Harry, has made the acquaintance of several members of the british royal family including princess Michael of Kent. Marie-Christine von Reibnitz married prince Michael of Kent, who is none other than the cousin of queen Elizabeth II.

Invited to this event, princess Michael of Kent was on his 31. She was wearing a black outfit topped with a coat of beige. But one detail attracted the attention of internet users… A pin was so hooked, referring to a black woman, wearing a turban and a dress of gold. A gem not really appropriate for this first meeting with Meghan Markle, born of a mother african-american. This accessory has very quickly been deemed racist by the american press.

In the Face of accusations, princess Michael of Kent was keen to present his apologies. According to the spokesperson who is entrusted to The Sun Online, ” the princess Michael is very sorry and saddened that this could have been offended. “

Problem, this is not the first time that princess Michael of Kent is accused of racism. According to the u.s. site Lainey Gossip, in 2004, she had already caused outrage by asking black people to ” return to their colonies “. A few months later, she had attempted to explain his comments with a statement just as disturbing : “I’ve already pretended to be an African middle class but because of my light eyes, it didn’t work. Yet, I had dyed my hair black. “So this pin was a mistake or a genuine message sent to Meghan Markle ?
