Viewers said she was ‘having none of it’

Meghan Markle appeared to get snubbed by a member of the public at Windsor Castle – and the moment was even caught on camera.

The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance at the castle on Saturday afternoon, greeting crowds of royal supporters alongside Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate.

The Suits actor was well-received by many visitors – some of whom asked for hugs and and hand shakes. But one video circulating social media seemed to show a member of the crowd “having none of it” as the Duchess stood right in front of her.

Meghan has cancelled multiple plans, including the release of her next podcast episode, in preparation for the Queen’s funeral.

She was due to star on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on September 20, and had a visit to the UN General Assembly scheduled with Prince Harry on the same day. But she has now put plans on hold, including her popular Spotify podcast Archetypes, following the Queen’s death on Thursday, and to allow space for the funeral on September 19.

The delays come after King Charles III offered an olive branch to Harry and Meghan in his first address to the nation as sovereign.

The King said he wished to “express his love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas”.
