Monaco princess Charlotte Casiraghi branded 'ignorant' over Native American costume

Charlotte Casiraghi has become the latest public figure to spark anger for wearing a Native American costume.

The Monaco royal, 26, who chose the ensemble to participate in the Gucci-sponsored Paris Masters International Jumping Competition this weekend, was branded 'ignorant' and 'racist' by Tumblr users, many of whom appeared to be royal fans, judging by their usernames.

Royalwatcher wrote on the site: 'I don’t know who told her it was cute to dress in traditonal clothing of Native American but gurlll, I’m judging you and not in the good way.'

Yeah, it kind of is. :( I meant to put up there that they're traditionally only won by men, because I know I've seen a few stories about female veterans in modern NA communities being allowed to wear war bonnets. But yeah.

Ah, okay. I was terrified of starting a shitfest with that question, but I was like... wat.
I get that traditionally males were the ones fighting but yeah, in a modern day context it didn't make sense.
