Princess Michael Of Kent Is In Another Racist Controversy Before Markle Wedding

Princess Michael of Kent is always getting into hot water, and she's been hit with a second racist scandal just weeks before Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle!

According to the ex-boyfriend of the daughter of the royal, who spoke to Vanity Fair, Princess Michael named her two black sheep Venus and Serena, after the famed African-American Williams sisters tennis superstars.

Queen Elizabeth's wild card cousin, 73, is reportedly despised by family members because of her alleged bigotry.

"Princess Michael, though generally free of British colonial prejudices, and beyond reproach when it came to me, nevertheless invited trouble out of what felt like a desire to shock: her pair of black sheep in Gloucestershire were named Venus and Serena," said the former beau of her daughter, Ella Windsor.

The unidentified man, however, added, "Most everybody thought she was 'perfectly ghastly,' but I saw a nice side of Princess Michael. She could be funny, intelligent, generous, and she was a lot more industrious than the other royals."

It's not reported if Princess Michael still owns the sheep.

But she hit the headlines last year for wearing a controversial Blackamoor brooch to Queen Elizabeth's Christmas lunch, which was attended by Prince Harry and his biracial bride-to-be Meghan Markle.

The pin was a hugely inappropriate symbol said to depict Africans in subservient roles.

A Kensington Palace source later said the wife of the Queen's cousin had apologized and did not intend to offend anybody. She was said to have vowed to never wear the racist pin again.

But now, Princess Michael is being slammed again over the alleged sheep names, just as Harry and Meghan gear up for their hotly-anticipated royal wedding on May 19!

The wacky royal has been exposed for her alleged racist tendencies in the past. In 2004, Princess Michael reportedly told black diners at a restaurant to "go back to the colonies." She denied she'd said that.

She also ruffled other royal feathers by insultingly calling Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, "uneducated" while plugging a book in 2014.
