An enormous candle veiled Meghan from TV watchers at the Queen’s burial.
Yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex found herself wedged behind a candle and one of the Royal Family’s tallest members.
It meant that TV viewers had difficulty seeing her since she was frequently blocked from view.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 41, and her husband Prince Harry sat behind Tim Laurence, Princess Anne’s husband, who towers above his wife.
A giant church candle was also positioned between her and the TV cameras, making it even harder for viewers to see her.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat in the second row, close to Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, at Westminster Abbey.
She may have been content to maintain a low profile following a series of interviews in recent months in which she was harshly critical of the Royal Family.
Despite the criticism, she has complimented the Queen and claimed last year in an interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey that the queen has always been good to her.
The Queen has always been amazing to her, she remarked. She just really enjoyed being in her company. The queen has always been nice and friendly. Meghan Markle may have been thinking about it yesterday, when she was observed wiping away a tear as the monarch’s casket was being removed from the Abbey.
She wore a Stella McCartney black cape dress with long gloves and pearl and diamond earrings gifted to her by the Queen after she wedded Harry.
