Meghan Markle has no time for commoners snapping pics of her at Wimbledon — her security demanded people to turn their lenses away while she watched Serena Williams.
British media consultant and former BBC reporter Sally Jones told The Telegraph that while Meghan was taking in Serena’s match Thursday, one of her bodyguards came up and said, “Would you not take photographs of the Duchess? She’s here in a private capacity.” Jones was seated in the same VIP row as Meghan at the time.
Shocked at the request, Jones says she told the security guard she had no intention of photographing Meghan … and wasn’t even aware she was there before that moment. She says she was simply trying to take a shot of Serena.
BTW, Jones wasn’t the only one shooed away. Several other spectators with phones out were told to beat it.
Jones feels Meghan’s move was “childish” and says Prince Harry and his wife see themselves “more as A-list celebrities rather than royals carrying out their duties.” She added there were tons of professional photogs there anyway getting pics of Meghan, so it wasn’t like she was there undercover.
