Meghan Markle praised for calm reaction after snub from woman in crowd

Meghan Markle has been praised for her calm reaction after one royal well-wisher snubbed her offer of a handshake on her walkabout of Windsor with Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The foursome, once known as the 'Fab Four' reunited publicly (and it's thought privately) for the first time in two years on Sunday 11 September to view floral tributes to the late Queen Elizabeth II who died on Thursday, 8 September.

They also took time to greet well-wishers who had lined the streets, and the new Prince and Princess of Wales took one side, whilst the Sussexes greeted people at the other, with Meghan, 41, reaching out to shake peoples hands and talk to them as she passed.

One woman appeared to snub Meghan's handshake, instead pointedly looking away and avoiding eye-contact with the Duchess before giving her companion a loaded side-eye and smirking as Meghan simply maneuvered past and carried on with her greetings.

There are also reports of others in the crowd snubbing Meghan – who, along with husband Harry, stepped down as a senior member of the royal family in 2020 – with one person being seen withdrawing their hand, and another putting on sunglasses to avoid making eye contact.

The apparent snubs were met with a mixed reaction on Twitter, with one person supporting Meghan, saying: “They're just jealous."

Another Meghan supporter tweeted: “The lady [who snubbed Meghan] is an actual embarrassment. Typical school girl bullying behaviour."

There were, however, some people that supported the lady who apparently snubbed Meghan, dubbing her the 'Lady in Blue'.

One person tweeted: "You can go on Oprah. You can write a book. You can do a podcast. And it was all blown away by the Lady in Blue."

"Protect that lady in blue at all cost. I would have done the exact same thing."

It was a huge moment seeing the two warring Princes and their wives on a public engagement as a foursome, after rumours of a huge rift have been rife for the past few years, from tales of tears leading up to Meghan and Harry's wedding to accusations levelled at the senior royals by Meghan and Harry following their departure from The Firm.

It was the first time the once close brothers have been seen together since the unveiling of a statue of their late mother Princess Diana in July 2021.

Of the reuniting of the two couples, The Telegraph reports that Kate, 40, is said to have told a family in the crowd at Windsor: "At times like this you’ve got to come together."
