Meghan Markle has painfully awkward moment when woman tries to bow, curtsy and hug her at the same time

The Sun 1 month ago

LAST night, Meghan Markle made her first public appearance since her and Harry’s explosive ITV documentary aired on Sunday night – but it didn’t go as smoothly as one might hope.

The Duchess of Sussex looked effortlessly stunning as she arrived at the Royal Albert Hall for the One Young World Summit opening ceremony, but was faced with a painfully awkward encounter.

Meghan suffers a very awkward encounter while hugging Kate Robertson on stage

Taking to the stage to greet one of the One Young World founders, Kate Robertson, a relaxed and beaming Meghan went in for a friendly hug.

But Kate had other ideas and tried to hug, shake Meghan’s hand and curtsy all at the same time.

In the mega awkward moment, Meghan can be seen shaking her head in confusion – while Kate, realising what has happened, tries to accept Meghan’s hug – but is still kneeling to curtsy.

In a split second, the pair both realise what has happened and laugh it off before hugging it out in a warm embrace.

According to the One Young World website, Meghan Markle is a “long-standing supporter” of the organisation, having joined as a counsellor at the 2014 summit in Dublin.

The Duchess is vice-president of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which has partnered with One Young World to bring 53 people to the summit.

One Young World co-founders Kate Robinson and David Jones said in a statement: “We are thrilled that the Duchess of Sussex will be returning to our stage.

“She is a much-loved member of the One Young World community who has supported us since 2014; she’s an inspiration to young leaders all over the world, and we’re delighted to be partnering with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which the Duchess is Vice President, to provide scholarships for young leaders from every Commonwealth country to attend the One Young World Summit in London.”

The pair hugged it out

The Duchess of Sussex stunned in a purple midi dress for the event last night.

The Aritzia dress, which initially cost £81 but has now been reduced to £29, was first seen on Meghan while she was pregnant with Archie in January.

At the time Meghan had joined Prince Harry to visit Birkenhead, and had paired the vibrant frock with bright red accessories.

It was Meghan’s first appearance since the explosive ITV documentary

It was Meghan’s first appearance since the explosive ITV documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, aired on Sunday night, in which the Duchess spoke openly about the pressures of royal life.

During the engagement, Meghan wore her hair down, in loose curls around her face – and body language expert, Judi James claims it suggests the Duchess is using her hair as “curtains”.

She told Fabulous Digital: “Meghan’s body language last night revealed a mix of ‘the show must go on’ smiling resilience combined with hints of the vulnerability she spoke about in South Africa and traits bordering on the timid.

“She has worn her hair down before of course but this softer styling didn’t just frame the face, it obscured it at times too.”

In other royal news, we told you how Wendy Williams slammed Meghan Markle saying she ‘trying to garner sympathy’ but ‘nobody feels sorry for you’.

We also revealed how the Queen was mistaken for ‘some old dear who was lost’ at the Windsor horse show in 1991 and was nearly refused entry.

And we told you Meghan Markle’s secret nickname for Prince Harry and royal fans think it’s so ‘cute’.
