Meghan Markle criticised for ANOTHER royal blunder – involving affection with Prince Harry

Meghan Markle, 36, attended another royal engagement with week, the Queen’s Young Leader Awards at Buckingham Palace.

On the arm of her husband Prince Harry, the Duchess looked glowing in a pale pink Prada dress and perfectly coiffed hair. 

Despite everything appearing to be picture perfect, Meghan has been attacked by critics who claim she made a big slip-up with royal protocol.

She was criticised following the event for the way she sat, forgetting to of her “Duchess Slant” and instead crossing her legs over her knees.

Favoured by royal women the Duchess Slant is crossing the legs at the ankle, which Meghan quickly corrected when realising how she was sat.

She has now come under scrutiny for how she engaged with her husband Prince Harry at the Commonwealth awards ceremony, after a video emerged.

The video appears to show Meghan reaching for Harry’s hand to hold it at the event.

Walking behind the Queen, Meghan is seen sticking her hand out towards the prince, hoping he will take her hand.

Harry is shown ignoring Meghan’s advance, bringing his arms even nearer to his side.

Meghan then brushes off the interaction and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, before walking on as though nothing has happened.

Public displays of affection are very rare within the Royal Family, with it reported to be an unwritten royal protocol.

However, the public were quick to condemn the accusations that the 36-year-old was breaking royal protocol, with many Twitter users jumping to her defence.

One tweeted: “Give her a chance this is all new for her stop nit picking” (sic).

Another user questioned both Meghan and Harry’s regard for royal protocol, adding: “She simply doesn’t care about protocol. And Harry with his beard in wedding uniform appears to be the same.”

The no public affection protocol comes from the Queen herself, with that monarch rarely spotted holding Prince Philip’s hand at public engagements.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have long adhered to the unwritten rue, only snapped holding hands on a handful of occasions.

Meghan and Harry have been known to show lots of affection towards each other in public, but not at official state engagements.

The newlyweds were spotted at Royal Ascot last week, where they couldn’t stop touching each other.

Meghan was also spotted holding hands with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at Prince Charles’ birthday garden party.

Meghan has been quick to pick up on royal etiquette and protocol since her wedding to Harry last month, but there have been a few slip-ups that haven’t gone unnoticed.
