On Wednesday, all eyes were on Meghan Markle as she made her first royal holiday appearance.

"Whenever I'm out random people will approach me and tell me that I look like "the girl from Suits" or 'Prince Harry's new fiancée.' I was once mistaken for her while shopping at the mall with a friend of mine".

Update 12/22: A rep for Princess Michael of Kent says she's "very sorry and distressed" that she wore the blackamoor brooch to the Queen's Christmas luncheon, TMZ reports.

After the uproar over her brooch, Princess Michael's spokesman released a statement expressing remorse and vowed never to wear the blackamoor brooch again. I wanted to be a writer. The princess added of her trip to Africa, "I had this adventure with these absolutely adorable, special people and to call me racist: it's a knife through the heart because I really love these people".
