Thomas Kingston: the remarkable life of the ‘relentlessly optimistic’ royal found dead at 45

Known as “Princess Pushy”, Princess Michael has suffered her fair share of gaffes during her years in the royal family, including the infamous “racist” brooch incident. This occurred when Princess Michael met Meghan Markle for brunch, all the while outfitted with a “blackamoor” brooch that features the bust of a human with black skin. Princess Michael apologised, with a spokesperson saying she was “very sorry and distressed that it has caused offence”. And Lady Gabriella was not devoid of scandal, either. In 2018, the year before Kingston wed into the family, Lady Gabriella’s ex-boyfriend, Aatish Taseer, penned a bombshell article for Vanity Fair that, among other things, claimed they had taken MDMA in royal residences and swam naked in the Queen’s pool in Buckingham Palace. The article also alleged further racially-insensitive actions from Princess Michael, worsening her public profile. He referred to an article published in the New York Post with the headline ‘Royal Bigot’. The story claimed that Princess Michael had told some noisy customers (and people of colour) at Da Silvano, an Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village, to go back to the colonies. She denied it, saying: “I would never have said that.”
