Royal fans are less than impressed with Meghan Markle’s appearance at Wimbledon last week.
The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance to support good friend Serena Williams, taking her seat at Centre Court amidst a flurry of eager fans keen to catch a glimpse of the new mum.

However, a new report has slammed the 37-year-old former actress after claims a nearby spectator was instructed by protection officers not to take pictures of the duchess.
Media consultant Sally Jones, who was seated in the same row as the Duchess of Sussex told the UK’s Daily Telegraph that she was asked to stop taking pictures as Meghan was attending the London tennis competition “in a private capacity.”
“I told him it was bonkers and even if I had been trying to snap the Duchess, I’d have got a blurry picture of her right ear,” Jones told the outlet, calling the ordeal “another example of silly control freakery.”
Jones also believed the officer was “quite embarrassed” by the alleged demand, noting, “He appeared a bit mystified as to why he was being asked to make such a request.”
“Apart from anything else, there were hundreds of people clicking away. I said to him, ‘Have you thought about having a word with any of those television cameras?’ He looked a little uncomfortable.”
This latest development follows criticism of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for keeping their son, Archie’s christening private.
Only two photos were released from the ceremony and none of the godparents have been names. However, a recent report suggests that Harry’s best friend Charlie van Straubenzee is one of the godparents.
