What Meghan saw at the Christmas lunch

I don’t want to take away from the excitement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s official engagement photos. It’s super exciting. The photos are glorious. And what’s even more glorious is that someone like Meghan Markle, a biracial woman, is a joining a family that… well… like all families, really, has some stink to it. 

When I posted about Meghan attending the Queen’s annual Christmas lunch yesterday, I included a paragraph about Princess Michael of Kent and her racist bullsh-t. Go back and read it because Princess Michael of Kent couldn’t f-cking help herself. Princess Michael of Kent apparently spoke to Meghan yesterday. While they were speaking, do you think Meghan noticed the brooch that Princess Michael of Kent (can we call her something else for f-ck’s sake?) was wearing? Let me show you that brooch: 

Here's a zoom in on that brooch on her left side.

You see what that is? 

There’s history to that kind of jewelry. Click here to read about it. These kinds of pieces depict – and fetishise – Africans in subservient roles. To put it bluntly, this is a piece of jewelry made out of slave imagery. And a woman who once told black people to “go back to the colonies” at a restaurant decided that would be what she would wear to the Queen’s Christmas lunch, where the Queen’s grandson was introducing his fiancée, who is biracial, to the extended family for the first time. 

Coincidence or conspiracy? 

Prince William worried about the pressure that Kate Middleton would experience from the media. Prince Harry defended Meghan Markle last year against gross media reporting out of England. But what if the grossness is coming from his own relatives? This is what Meghan Markle is coming in to. And this is why, even if you want to call her a scheming prince-digger, I’m here for it. Because she’s there to disrupt the f-ck out of their status quo.
