MEGHAN Markle’s friend Priyanka Chopra was seen not clapping as Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived at Wimbledon last weekend.

The Baywatch actress, 38, was captured on camera adjusting her scarf as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge entered the Royal Box to a round of applause.

Many royal fans were quick to claim that Priyanka was “ignoring” Kate and William, after comments Meghan has made about her struggles in the royal family.

Speaking to Oprah Winfrey, Meghan, 39, said that Kate made her cry over her bridesmaid dresses for her royal wedding, while revealing "conversations" were had with a member of the Royal Family around the colour of Meghan’s unborn child's skin.

While it is possible Priyanka simply didn’t see Kate, 39, and William, 39, entering the Royal Box, alongside a number of other attendees pictured not clapping, fans were quick to comment on the moment and claim it was a snub.

One said: “The way Priyanka did not even look in their direction is enough for me.”

Another added: “She totally ignored them. I would do the same if my friend was mistreated”, while a third wrote: “I would ignore them as well.”

The footage was captured as the stars attended the Wimbledon Women's Final between Australia’s Ashleigh Barty, who was the eventual champion, and Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic last Saturday. 

Priyanka, sat with a friend, was spotted a few rows behind Meghan's sister-in-law Kate and brother-in-law William.

Meghan and Priyanka became friends in 2016 at an ELLE Women in Television dinner before Meghan’s royal ascent, and have supported one another over the years. 

Priyanka was a guest at Meghan and Prince Harry’s star-studded wedding, held in May 2018.

When Meghan was chosen as one of Time's Most Influential People of 2018, Priyanka penned a piece on her friend, writing all about her special qualities.

In the article, Priyanka predicted that Meghan "will be a princess for the people" and called her "a relatable young woman with her heart and mind in the right place".

A source told E! News: "Meghan confides in Priyanka about the adjustments she has to make with being a royal."

When Meghan was previously asked by Oprah Winfrey if she made Kate cry over the dress incident, Meghan said: "The reverse happened.

"A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to ... the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings.

"There wasn't a confrontation and I don't think it's fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her. What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn't do, but that happened to me.

"I'm not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to be disparaging to her."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were said to be left deeply saddened after the interview, in which Prince Harry said Wills was "trapped" in the Firm.

Kate has not spoken publicly about the interview once.

Queen Elizabeth Not Stripping Meghan Markle of Her Title May Have Everything to Do With Sarah Ferguson

At this point, a number of people, especially those on the opposite side of the pond, believe that the two are simply cashing in on the Sussex name as Mr. and Mrs. Mountbatten-Windsor doesn’t seem to carry that same celebrity weight. But the monarch actually removing their titles because the Sussexes are using every media outlet to bash the royal family, isn’t so easy. In fact, the queen could face criticism and be seen as a hypocrite if she were to take away Meghan’s duchess title because of the scenario with her former daughter-in-law Sarah Ferguson.

In their initial announcement via Instagram on Jan. 8, 2020, the couple said: “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the royal family.” Many questions followed as did approval from the queen and an agreement was settled on.

Post-Megxit, it was agreed that Harry and Meghan would keep their titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but will continue not to use the HRH (His/Her Royal Highness) in their titles.

“The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family,” Buckingham Palace’s official statement read.

Of course things have changed since then with the couple now publicly throwing out allegations of what they say occurred when they were senior royals so the calls to strip them of their titles, mainly Meghan’s, have grown louder. But not allowing Meghan to keep her Duchess of Sussex title could actually make Queen Elizabeth look like a hypocrite. That’s because the monarch allowed Sarah Ferguson to keep hers even after she divorced Prince Andrew and released books about her time in the royal family.

After her marriage to the Duke of York came to an end, Sarah continued to use not only her Duchess of York title but also the style “Her Royal Highness.” Within months, a letters patent regulating post-divorce royal titles was issued. It stated that Fergie could not use HRH anymore since she was no longer married to the prince. However, she would still able to retain her duchess title which didn’t hurt when she signed deals with companies like Weight Watchers.

Today, Andrew’s ex is officially known as Sarah, Duchess of York. But as The Express noted, if she were to ever remarry that title would be removed from her name.

No matter how loud the calls to strip Meghan and Harry of their titles become constitutional expert Iain MacMarthanne doesn’t see a scenario in which that ever happens for the Duke of Sussex since he is a prince by birthright.

MacMarthanne told The Express: “There is in some quarters a feeding frenzy at present for the removal of all or some of Prince Harry’s titles… Within the context of present circumstances, Prince Harry was born an HRH and prince, and there is no modern precedent for someone born as such being stripped of these styles and titles. The Sussex peerage is a hereditary creation and was given as a gift by the queen [on his wedding day].”

Royal fans call Prince William a hypocrite for speaking against racism in soccer after failing to publicly support Meghan Markle

Yahoo News 13 July, 2021 - 12:09pm

The duke said he was "sickened" by the racism England players faced after the Euro final.

He previously disregarded Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's allegations about racism.

Prince William has been criticized again for addressing racism in soccer after he did not publicly support his sister-in-law Meghan Markle after she spoke about facing racism.

The Duke of Cambridge said he was "sickened" by the racist abuse aimed at England players following their loss to Italy at the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.

"It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour. It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable," he wrote on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Twitter account on Monday.

While William has been outspoken on the matter of racism in soccer, he defended his family after Duchess of Sussex spoke about her experience with racism in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7.

During the interview, she said that some royals raised "concerns" about how dark her and Harry's first child's skin would be. She and Harry did not mention the names of these royals, though Winfrey said that Harry told her it was not the Queen or Prince Philip who made the remarks.

A March 9 statement from Buckingham Palace on behalf of the Queen also acknowledged the allegations, saying that "the issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning."

When asked about the interview by reporters on March 11, William responded that "we're very much not a racist family."

Twitter user Love, Lola pointed out that Meghan Markle was trending on Twitter in the US following William's statement on Monday.

"Many were calling out his hypocrisy," the Twitter user wrote, before sharing screenshots of the 22 verified accounts she said she had found criticizing the duke.

Representatives for the Duke of Cambridge did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

The duke said he was "fed up" with racism in soccer during a royal engagement in September 2019, and wrote a tweet about online abuse players faced this February.

"I do wish you and your family were this vocally antiracist when the target of the racism was the Duchess of Sussex," Meinzer wrote in response to the tweet.

Representatives for the Duchess of Sussex declined to comment when reached by Insider.

Prince William in Hot Water After Comments on Racism

Newser 13 July, 2021 - 08:01am

(Newser) – Prince William condemned the racist abuse that Black members of England's soccer team were subjected to after the team lost the Europe championship to Italy, but now William is the one under scrutiny. Commenters on social media were quick to note that the British royal has not yet publicly defended his sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, after her claims of being subjected to racism from members of the royal family, Fox News reports. In fact, the Los Angeles Times reports, William defended the family after Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla also seemed to speak out against the racism directed at the soccer players, while staying largely silent on Markle's allegations. "Tell me football and your public image is more important than your family without telling me that football and your public image is more than your family," reads one Twitter response to the couple. "When exactly do you decry racism? When it's not directed via tabloids at your family?" And in a response to William's tweet, there was this: "Now one for your sister-in-law. We'll wait..."
