The Queen and Phil won't be around long enough to worry anyway, Charles had his way in the end
and Wills will be all for the union - sorted
Hope this shows up....Meghan is not the first royal of mixed heritage
Royal faux pas
Princess Michael of Kent wore a piece of Blackamoor jewelry to a Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. Meghan was also present. It is not known if Meghan saw the broach but they did speak. Very, very insensitive of Princess Michael to choose that particular piece of jewelry to wear to that event. I wonder if she will be reprimanded?
I don't know what 'Blackamoor' is, but it don't look good from what I can see
What's that on her head
What the heck is blackamoor jewellery?.... I saw all those pictures the other day of the parade of Royals going to lunch with the Queen and I didn't notice this on princess Michael ...
You can't miss that brooch and its in a funny position, its also very naff
I would have seen it if she'd been walking, but that would have been a journalist with a long lens, I certainly didn't see it in the video of them driving in... you're right it's an ugly piece of jewellery despite or regardless of the connotations. ...but I do think too much is being made of Meghans' colour...she's half white, in fact I notice in today's black and white engagement photos.. she has about as many freckles as Harry... however even if she were 100% black, I just wish people would stop getting their knickers in a twist about her colour.. .
Makes me shudder to think that people would make an issue of it
I don't know anything about this person or the pin she's wearing to know if it was on purpose and a dig.
Whether deliberate or not, the woman has no taste in what looks good Should be binned, only place for it
Now I'm interested in that pin. Is it a common pin? Is it a pin of a royal black person? Looks that way from the hat.
Why would this woman have that pin? Do other white women have that pin? Would it be something a black person would have.
Please don't say I'm racist, just curious. I wouldn't even have noticed it except that it's been circled.
See I'm the same as you CC...I woudn't have noticed it either..and I know nothing at all about this pin..never heard of it before today...
princess Michael had a hard time when she married into the Royal family herself many years ago..because she's Divorced, Czech and Catholic... and she had much less of a filter than the royals were used to so she was sidelined a lot by the The royal family , so I would find it hard to believe she would deliberately try and upset an outsider to the family who is about to endure similar to what she suffered herself , because she knows what it feels like.
That said...she's always been controversial in her outspokenness, and much of the media still hold it against her that her father was a member of the Nazi party in the 1930's
There's more here....
@Holly Saunders ...having been watching the Crown ..if you have how much of the program is true?
I just finished watching season 2 last week....love it. I was always fact checking things.
Sorry I haven't been watching it... the truth is I'm a Historian and a Royalist ...although not a Monarchist... and with all historical drama they always get certain parts very wrong according to History.. and of course as soon as that happens, I can no longer believe in it.. so I chose not to watch the Crown.. so I can't tell you from personal experience, but I'm told it's quite factual although as I suspected there are parts which are not true, such as the Queen asking her uncle ( Louise MountBatten) for advice , she never would have done that...he was Philips's confidant and uncle, and ultimately prince Charles's de facto father, but also the Queen Mother's adversary, ... also Matt smith couldn't be less like prince Philip so I couldn't possibly take him seriously..
So I can't answer your question lol
I doubt it was deliberate to wear the brooch, just a shame that she did because of the publicity that ensued and,
the fact that its yuk
I also doubt she wore it deliberately, and today the papers are full of her making sincere apologies, saying it was a gift and that she'd worn it on many occasions...
However, I'm afraid that if the members of the existing royal family feel they are going to be criticised and accused of racism due to what they wear or how they're perceived to be acting ... then meghan Markel is not going to be given the most warm welcome within the extended family.. and she may find herself pushed out in the sidelines along with her prince .
I also doubt that Meghan made a dim comment about the brooch
