On Saturday afternoon, just two days after Queen Elizabeth II’s death, Meghan joined her husband Prince Harry and the newly-appointed Prince and Princess of Wales to greet well-wishers lining the streets outside of Windsor Castle. A video clip has emerged showing the 41-year-old collecting flowers from the well-wishers and her, then, being approached by one royal aide who wanted to take the growing number of flower tributes from her.
Meghan gestured to the royal aide that she wanted to place them at the gates herself, before politely thanking them.
She was then approached by a second aide, where she did hand over the flowers.
The mother-of-two was spotted, along with Harry, making her way along the gates.
She was spotted chatting to the crowd and thankfully them, on behalf of the family, for their well-wishes.
The Duchess was also seen hugging some of the mourners who were waiting.
Following the exchange, royal fans speculated that Meghan may have not known that the aides wanting to take the flowers, was for her own safety.
They noted that the flowers could contain harmful substances or explosives, meaning the royals should not carry them.
The couple’s surprising appearance, alongside William and Kate, marked the first appearance for the four of them, once dubbed the Fab Four.
