Princess Michael of Kent has apologised for wearing a brooch that has been called "racist" by some people online.

The royal, who married the Queen's first cousin, attended a Christmas banquet at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday(20) wearing a blackamoor brooch.

Prince Harry's fiance, Meghan Markle, who is mixed-race, was also a guest at the lunch.

A spokesman said the princess "is very sorry and distressed that it has caused offence".

Blackamoor figures and sculptures are exotic figures which usually depict African men and were prominent in the 17th and 18th centuries.
