In a statement to People and The Daily Mail Friday, a representative for the royal said, "The brooch was a gift and has been worn many times before".

Meghan is likely to have chosen her outfit for the pictures with great care, and opted for British brands in a nod to her new home with Harry also wearing heritage label Burberry.

Her brooch isn't necessarily the typical servitude depiction, but considering the history of Blackamoor art, Princess Michael probably should have avoided pulling this brooch out of the jewelry box for her first meeting with Markle.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released their official engagement photos this week, shot in the grounds of Kensington Palace.

The princess, who is married to the Queen's cousin, was pictured wearing a prominent piece of "blackamoor" jewellery pinned to her coat as she arrived at the annual royal family gathering. Princess Michael of Kent might want to give that letter a close read.

Markle, 36, has been open about her cultural heritage, telling the world that she is "bi-racial".

Meghan is famously proud of her biracial background, revealing to Elle that her Caucasian father Thomas Markle and African American mum Doria Radlan encouraged her to "say who I am, to share where I'm from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman". "Markle began her essay saying: "'What are you?' A question I get asked every week of my life, often every day". While I could say Pennsylvania and OH, and continue this proverbial two-step, I instead give them what they're after: 'My dad is Caucasian and my mom is African American. According to The Cut, while traveling in NY in 2004, the Princess told black diners at a restaurant to "go back to the colonies".
