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.

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