Last week, Meghan Markle disrespected Queen Elizabeth by turning her back on her at Ascot. Now, Meghan seems to have disrespected the Queen in front of the entire world once again.
Daily Mail reported that when Meghan took her seat at the Young Leaders Reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night, she sitting with her legs crossed at the knees instead of the correct “Duchess slant” that her sister-in-law Kate Middleton always uses.
This has caused many royal watchers to accuse Meghan of being “disrespectful” towards the Queen, explaining that royal ladies should sit with their legs crossed at the ankles.
“Typically “the Duchess slant” is used when a lady has to sit for an extended amount of time while keeping poise and posture,” said Myka Meier, the founder of Beaumont Etiquette.
Reader’s Digest stated, “One of the worst things a woman in the royal family can do – as far as go – is sit with her legs crossed at the knee. Legs and knees must be kept together, although crossing at the ankle is fine.”
“Duchess of Sussex has her legs crossed wrong. What a disrespect to the queen,” one social media user commented.
“All royal ladies cross at the ankles or put both legs off to the side,” another added.
“Meghan don’t cross your legs Queen doesn’t like that,” said a third while another wrote: “Meghan is crossing her legs…awful photo. Am I being too picky?”
This comes after a source said that Meghan is “devastated” after her father betrayed her by giving an interview in which he talked about Prince Harry’s political beliefs.
“She is trying so hard to fit in and adapt to this very new way of life and she was once again blindsided by a father who supposedly cares about her and doesn’t want to embarrass her,” the source said, according to Daily Star. “Given the media circus surrounding her father’s actions before the wedding, Meghan had hoped he would have learned his lesson. She is devastated over this.”
“Harry did his best to prepare Meghan for what to expect from the media as a member of the royal family, but it’s impossible,” the source continued. “Her experience as an actress on a popular nighttime soap pales in comparison. The knives are out and, sadly, some of them appear to be coming from her own family.”
