Meghan Markle’s friend Priyanka Chopra ‘ignores’ Prince William and Kate Middleton at

0


Meghan Markle’s friend Priyanka Chopra appeared to ‘ignore’ Prince William and Kate Middleton as they were clapped into the Royal Box at Wimbledon.

In a newly emerged clip, the actress, 38, opted to fiddle with her scarf as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, took their seats to rapturous applause from the crowd ahead of the Women’s Singles Final on Saturday. 

Further photos show Priyanka appearing to look away from the royal couple while standing on Centre Court balcony as they mingled with VIPs after the match.

Several royal watchers suggested it was a snub after the Duchess of Sussex, 39, made remarks about Kate during her Oprah Winfrey interview.

Meghan claimed her sister-in-law made her cry and ‘hurt her feelings’ during a discussion about flower girl dresses ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry – after it was previously suggested it was the other way round.

She also claimed ‘conversations’ were had with a member of the Royal Family about the colour of Meghan and Harry’s son Archie’s skin. 

It’s possible Priyanka didn’t see the Cambridges enter the Royal Box, or that she wasn’t aware of the etiquette to applaud, however several royal fans suggested her abstaining from clapping was intentional.  

Remarking on her reaction, one said: ‘The way Priyanka did not even look in their direction is enough for me.’

Another tweeted: ‘I’m actually in disbelief about such a lack of manners and upbringing. The Americans sitting in the vicinity to Kate and William did NOT clap nor acknowledge their entry. Two past tennis stars with their wives, King and Navratilova, and a bestie of Meghan’s, Priyanka Chopra.’ 

One added: ‘She totally ignored them. I would do the same if my friend was mistreated’, while one remarked: ‘I would ignore them as well.’
