A royal expert has come out swinging after Meghan Markle’s latest antics, this time at a recent charity polo match in Miami.

Royal biographer, Angela Levin, has slammed the Duchess of Sussex for “taking centre stage” at the polo match which was hosted by Prince Harry’s charity, Sentabale.

Prince Harry’s team, Royal Salute Sentabale defeated their opponents in a 3 – 1 victory at the Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, Florida.

On the podium, Meghan gave her husband a chaste kiss before presenting his trophy. She then awkwardly remained on stage planting herself in the middle for a photo opportunity, even going as far as directing where other dignitaries should stand.

Speaking to GB News host Eamonn Holmes, Levin described the Duchess’ behaviour as “inappropriate”, “disgusting” and “rude”.

“Let Harry have a little thing of his own,” she stated.

Holmes responded to Levin’s comments stating, “”At the end of the day, she is an actress. She knows how to take centre stage.”

But Levin retorted, “She shouldn’t be in the middle because she’s got two things that she’s doing for Netflix.

“She’s talking about food, households, friendship, making friends, arrangements, cooking and all that.

“Let Harry have a little thing of his own. He scored the goal that made them win and you think she would be really pleased?

“She pecked his lips, it wasn’t a great passionate kiss, as the paper said because it didn’t last more than a second. I just felt it just crushed him to nothing.”

X-users chimed in on the awkward exchange where the Duchess appears to be dictating the photo opportunity.

“The third lady was pushed out completely,” one person said.

“Only because no one will stand next to her.”

“After working for this charity for 15yrs this woman had more right to be on that stage than MM did, she should have been with all the other wives!” another commented.

While the images and video of the exchange certainly appear uncomfortable, another follower was quick to point out what came afterwards:

Prince Harry’s Sentabale Polo Cup has taken place annually since 2010 and has raised over $13 million to support the organisation’s work in Botswana and Lesotho, in Southern Africa.

Last year the Prince shared on the Sentabale website that, “The annual Polo Cup is essential to Sentebale’s vital work ensuring children and young people are healthy, resilient, and able to thrive.

“The funds raised this year will support our Clubs and Camps programme, which provides intensive pyschosocial support to young people living with HIV.

“In a time where being HIV positive is no longer a death sentence, we are empowering young people to know their status, stay healthy, and eliminate the stigma so that they can break the cycle.”
