In the midst of Princess of Wales‘s notable camaraderie with Roger Federer at this year’s Wimbledon, another royal figure made a surprise appearance, capturing the attention of spectators. The 2019 edition of the renowned British tennis tournament witnessed the presence of Meghan Markle, accompanied by a minor incident that did not go unnoticed.
Wimbledon has always been an event that commands attention from the British royal family. While Queen Elizabeth II was notably absent and Princess of Wales garnered headlines for her close bond with the tennis icon, Meghan Markle‘s appearance created a stir, further adding to the intrigue surrounding the prestigious tournament. Despite her well-deserved maternity leave following the recent birth and baptism of her adorable son Archie, the Duchess of Sussex made select appearances both on personal and professional fronts. Although she endeavors to limit her official engagements during this period, Prince Harry’s wife found herself drawn to attend the Trooping The Color military parade in June, celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 93rd birthday.
A few days later, Meghan Markle joined Prince Harry at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, where the couple actively participated in promoting the Invictus Foundation. These sporadic public appearances have left ardent followers of the Crown yearning for more. Recently, all eyes turned to Wimbledon, a beloved tennis tournament cherished by the royal family. Following in the footsteps of Princess of Wales, Meghan Markle surprisingly graced the stands, offering her unwavering support to her longtime friend Serena Williams.
However, amid the smiles and camaraderie shared with her college friends Lindsey Roth and Genevieve Hills, the Duchess of Sussex made an intriguing request that sparked curiosity. Richard Palmer, a royal correspondent for the esteemed Daily Express, revealed a series of tweets shedding light on Meghan Markle‘s specific plea to avoid being photographed by fans during the game.
According to an eyewitness, one of Meghan’s bodyguards intervened, politely urging the public to refrain from capturing her presence, citing the event as a “private setting.” This incident offers a glimpse into the meticulous care with which the Duchess of Sussex approaches her public image, leaving no room for compromise.
As the tournament progresses, all eyes remain on Meghan Markle, a captivating figure who continues to navigate her royal role with undeniable flair and finesse.
