Friends have reportedly stopped inviting Meghan Markle and Harry to dinner parties as they frown upon their PDA: 'She insists on sitting next to him'
When Duchess Meghan first burst into Prince Harry's dinner party circuit, the instance reportedly must have been horrifying for other attendees to witness
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is having a hard time conforming to society seating plans prevalent amongst the Royalty, as per recent reports.
As reported by Daily Mail, there are three known rules when it comes to placement or sitting arrangements at society events. The first rule happens to be about pronouncing it the French way at all times. This means pronouncing it with all three syllables emphasized, lest they sound 'common', or worse, American. The second rule is about couples not being put together to avoid a public display of affection that might end up putting guests off their food. The third rule is to not disrupt the complex social balancing act of placement, which at its core, is all about one always sitting where they have been placed.
So when Duchess Meghan first burst into Prince Harry's dinner party circuit, the outlet says the instance must have been horrifying for other attendees to witness. To escalate things, Meghan also ended up dismissing the established etiquette as "exclusive" and traditional', which the outlet notes are terms that "are rarely used disparagingly in Royal circles."
The Duchess has always been quite insistent about sitting next to her husband, the prince, ever since. And she also seems to rejoice in those "affectionate dinner-table PDAs," reports the outlet. According to Daily Mail, members of the society who are on the kinder side, usually just "roll their eyes and whisper that the poor lamb can’t help being Américaine." As for the more intolerant ones, they have "just stopped inviting her to dinner."
But Meghan is known for revolutionizing the Royal family rules; when her and Prince Harry's son Archie was born, on May 5, the couple skipped the Lio Wing photo op, where they pose with the baby outside the hospital first thing upon leaving the premises. Instead, they chose to go straight home and celebrate in private, before announcing Prince Archie to the world two days later. Similarly, the couple also broke a bunch of royal traditions during their May 2018 wedding, and Prince Harry even wears a wedding band which other men in the Royal family don't.
