Back in December, the Princess, often referred to as 'Princess Pushy', caused controversy when she donned a Blackamoor brooch at the Queen's Christmas lunch. The brooch featured a black figure with a gold headdress and robe. Blackamoor art and jewellery romanticises the times of slavery and is considered racially insensitive today.
But the royal denied any wrongdoing and later said in a statement through a royal representative that the brooch 'was a gift and has been worn many times before'.
'Princess Michael is very sorry and distressed that it has caused offence.'
However, this was not the first time the Princess had been publicly outed for her racism. In 2004, the royal caused another stir when she reportedly told a group of African-American patrons at a New York City restaurant to 'go back to the colonies.'
She later denied making the statement to the New York Post.
'I did not say ‘back to the colonies’,' she later clarified. 'I said ‘you should remember the colonies’. Back in the days of the colonies, there were rules that were very good.'
