'Nobody does that': Megyn Kelly slams Meghan Markle for staging her hiking photos
MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA: Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly has again found herself in the midst of a controversy after she criticized Meghan Markle's hiking photos near her home in Montecito, California. The 52-year-old took a shot at the Duchess of Sussex by claiming that the photos were staged and also took aim at her athleisure wear.
"She actually had a little neck scarf with a tie. I’m sorry ladies, but we’ve all walked our dogs, literally nobody does that," Kelly told Sky News host Paul Murray on Wednesday night, May 10. "Nobody wears a little necktie with a scarf and the glasses, and the hat and the perfectly wrapped little wrap for later just in case it gets chilly. And then the million-dollar smile, ‘Oh you, oh hello… where did you come from? (referring to the paparazzi) How on earth did you know I’d be here?' It was obvious, like everything with this woman."

Markle, 41, was photographed on a 40-minute hike near her home without the presence of her husband, Prince Harry, and their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
Who accompanied Meghan Markle?
The former actress was accompanied by friends Markus Anderson and Heather Dorak along with Kim Kardarshian's former bodyguard. This incident took place over the weekend of the coronation of King Charles III, which she reportedly did not attend to "protect her peace."

What did Meghan Markle wear during her hike?
Meghan was seen wearing black leggings with a complementing top, designer sunglasses, jewelry and a straw hat. She completed her look with a jacket wrapped around her hips and an apricot-coloured neck scarf, which seemed to be a bandanna, tied to the side. Markle also wore Princess Diana’s Cartier watch along with a Bentley & Skinner diamond tennis bracelet.

I’m sorry, but why did Meghan Markle think a pre-/post-hike paparazzi stroll would be good for her image this weekend? She could at least put a little effort into it. I mean she did, but the outfit is awful. She’s so laughably… pic.twitter.com/ghvMCzOiFY
'Oh hello… where did you come from?'
Megyn said that the former royal member's “million-dollar smile” clearly proved that the photos were not taken as candid. “‘Oh you, oh hello… where did you come from? How on earth did you know I’d be here?’" she added, according to Hindustan Times, “It was obvious, like everything with this woman.”
The host also took a shot
Murray also cracked a joke that the photographer was lucky enough to coincidentally photograph Meghan in her "Sunday best" while trekking around Montecito. "How lucky was the photographer just walking around the hills of Los Angeles to be able to find Meghan, who just happened to be in Sunday best walking around going hiking, everyone else wearing t-shirt and shorts, she’s got of course designer this and apricot scarves and all the rest," Murray sarcastically said to Kelly. "I mean what an accident."
'Even a blind one could see it was staged'
Twitter users also seemed to agree with what Megyn said. One user tweeted, "Of course she did, is that even a question?!" Another wrote, "Well duh! Who has photos like that while hiking!" One wrote, "Anything for attention ! Especially when on the RF . Lol she is so transparent", while another tweeted, "Even Yoko didn’t act like this. That was John’s idea to bring her into the sessions to begin with." "Even a blind one could see it was staged", tweeted one user.
