This Royal Wore a Racist Brooch to Meet Meghan Markle

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just released their official engagement photos — take a look

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle release official engagement portraits ahead of royal wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released their official engagement portraits on Thursday - and all eyes were on Markle's black dress.

According to Kensington Palace, the photos were taken earlier in the week at Frogmore House, Windsor.

At a party with Prince Harry's future wife Meghan Markle, Queen Elizabeth's first cousin, Princess Michael of Kent, known as "Princess Pushy", showed up wearing a brooch many are calling "racist".

Meghan did end up changing into something more cozy/less revealing in another photo - but that didn't stop the controversy from bubbling.

"I can not help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together", Lubomirski said.

In another photo, she is casually embracing Harry's face and chose a Victoria Beckham sweater, with Harry in a Burberry coat.

Kensington Palace later shared a third photograph of the pair to Twitter, thanking people for their "wonderful comments".

NY based photographer Alexi Lubomirski had the honour of snapping the photos. The couple's nuptials will take place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Kensington Palace first released the photos through Twitter.

"The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives".

While the borderline engagement-ring advertisement pose is not all that different to Wills and Kate - heads together (sorry) and engagement ring on full show - the mood of all three, nearly defiantly, is.

The palace released an extra, candid picture "as a way to say thank you".
