Meghan’s ‘awkward’ gesture towards ‘preoccupied’ Harry after King’s ‘snub’
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped out for the first time since a newly surfaced spat over the King’s 75th birthday bash has emerged.
Claims from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s spokesman suggests the pair were “not approached” by His Majesty to attend an event at Clarence House in London, rather than the pair declining any sort of invite – as originally reported.
It is understood the King’s closest friends and family will be going along to celebrate the milestone birthday.
The ongoing feud between the Sussexes and the Royal Family has been thrust into the spotlight once more, and just hours after the dispute regarding the invite was unveiled, Harry and Meghan were pictured by CBS at the United States Navy SEALs in San Diego, California, to open a new training facility.
But it was here, when the pair were on stage, that it’s claimed the “awkward” gesture was made by Meghan towards her husband who is said to have looked somewhat “preoccupied.”
She is said to have lightly ushered a “glum” looking Harry forward before the foundation’s CEO Robin King cut the ribbon, the Mirror reports.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘ready to get back out there again’ after ‘rough’ period
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are feeling “more refreshed than ever” and are “ready to get back out there again” after experiencing a “rough few months”, according to a source close to the couple.
In early 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit their roles as senior working members of the Royal Family when they relocated from the UK to eventually settle with their children in Montecito, California.
However, the couple have been hit by backlash after making several bombshell claims against the royal insitution – first in their Netflix documentary series from December 2022, with Harry then making further claims in his tell-all memoir, Spare.
Earlier this year, they suffered a further blow when Spotify and the Sussexes “mutually” agreed to part ways, with Spotify exec Bill Simmons publicly slamming the couple by calling them “grifters” during an episode of his own podcast.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ‘dream of making it big in Hollywood alive and well’
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “dream of making it big in Hollywood is still alive and well,” an insider has claimed, as the couple look to surge ahead with their respective careers.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have encountered a rollercoaster year, having been on the end of a furious backlash after making several bombshell claims against the Royal Family.
Earlier this year, Spotify and the Sussexes “mutually” agreed to part ways – putting an end to Meghan’s own Archeypes podcast after just 12 episodes. Spotify exec Bill Simmons publicly piled on the humiliation further by branding the couple “grifters” during an episode of his own podcast.
But Harry and Meghan still have their bumper multi-year deal with Netflix worth a rumored $100million. Their company, Archewell Productions, has also reportedly bought the film rights to the bestselling novel Meet Me at the Lake, which could be adapted for the streaming giant.
Despite experiencing a “rough few months,” a source close to the couple has claimed they are “excited” and still have plenty of new projects in the pipeline.
‘An absolutely terrible mistake!’ Farage hits out at King being made to wear black poppy
Nigel Farage has hit out after King Charles has reportedly been forced to wear a black poppy.
Farage however said making the King wear a BlackPoppyRose was “intensely political” as it represents contributions made against British soldiers and a “demand for reparations”. Speaking on GB News, he said it was “totally against the spirit” of Armistace Day.
King Charles was spotted wearing a lapel badge of the BlackPoppyRose under a traditional poppy during a visit to Kingston.
Farage said: “On the face of it, it is to honour Black servicemen that were killed serving in the wars, who some people believe are underrepresented. But it also represents Black people who fought against the British in a variety of wars, and it also represents a demand for reparations.”
