Meghan Markle under fire for wearing jeans & banning spectators from taking pictures at Wimbledon

Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has come under fire after she was accused of being a 'nightmare' at Wimbledon yesterday.

The former Hollywood actress and wife of Prince Harry caused a stir when she arrived to watch best friend Serena Williams play wearing jeans, which some claimed are banned in the exclusive members area.




On top of that, her minders tried to ban other spectators from taking pictures, even if they didn't feature the royal.

And an official who organised her 'private' appearance told The Times, "'It was a nightmare, she was a nightmare."

Now numerous celebrities have come forward lambasting what they described as her "self-regarding paranoia."

TV host Kirstie Allsopp said that a picture was a small price to pay for the 'privileges' Meghan enjoys as a royal.

"If you earn money by entertaining, in sport or media, or by being a member of the royal family, photos are part of the deal," she tweeted.

"Not at infomal times with kids, but otherwise it’s 'yes of course', because you’re bloody lucky to have the privileges that come with the jobs & the wages."



And when one follower said there's a "big difference between press photos and an entire crowd at Wimbledon" taking pictures, Kirstie argued that there are other, more 'discreet' ways, for stars to watch the tennis.

"They can watch it on the TV or come with one friend and sit in more discreet seats. Many, many famous people find a way to do things discreetly, it’s not as hard as all that," she added.

"I’m an enormous royalist, but I do feel that everyone who leads a blessed life partly as a result of the benefits accruing from public profile needs to have a thick skin re photos."

Hollywood actress Tatum O'Neal, who was previously married to US tennis ace John McEnroe, described Meghan's alleged behaviour as 'tacky' and the opposite of what the late Princess Diana would have done.

“I just think it is so upsetting to me because if you think of Princess Diana and you think of how absolutely inclusive she was, and she would never turn anyone away," she said on today's Good Morning Britain.

“I had so much hope for Meghan, and I wanted her to be the next Princess Diana.

“It seems like it is all about her, and it is really upsetting me. I am sorry, Harry, because I love Harry.”

She added, “Also, you are a royal, you are not an actor. To have a bodyguard muscle someone out, is so tacky.”

Piers Morgan, who is perpetually annoyed with former friend Meghan after she 'ghosted' him - questioned how someone can expect privacy at a public event like Wimbledon.

"A private capacity, at Wimbledon? This is so ridiculous," he raged.

"It's rankly hypocritical and they're not private people, they're the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. If you want to be private, go back to America and live privately."

Meanwhile, former world champion Sally Jones said she was confronted by an 'embarrassed' bodyguard who told her to stop taking pictures - even though she was just trying to get a shot of Serena and had no idea 'childish' Meghan was there.

She told the Daily Mail that Meghan was, "clearly looking around looking to see who was looking at her."

She continued, "Harry and Meghan see themselves more as A-list celebrities rather than royals carrying out their duties. It's control-freakery

"There were around 200 photographers snapping away at her but security were sent to warn an old biddy like me. It makes them look silly. It's childish and takes us for fools."

Kensington Palace is not commenting on the backlash, but a royal source told the Daily Mail, "It's not uncommon for personal protection officers accompanying any members of the Royal Family to ask people not to take pictures so they can engage with people and events rather than camera phones."
