Meghan Markle’s Trooping the Colour Joke Met with Silence from Kate Middleton

Meghan Markle once made a light-hearted joke during her first Trooping the Colour event in 2018 that did not go over well with Kate Middleton and those present.

The Duchess of Sussex, new to the royal tradition, had a brief exchange with Kate after the ceremony that highlighted the cultural and personal differences within the royal family.

Prince Harry recounted the moment, explaining how Kate asked Meghan for her thoughts on the Trooping the Colour ceremony. Meghan responded with a single word: “Colourful.”

According to Harry, this comment led to an awkward silence. He described the scene, saying, “A yawning silence threatened to swallow us all whole.”

This incident illustrates the contrasting senses of humour and communication styles between Meghan and the more reserved members of the royal family.

It also sheds light on the initial challenges Meghan faced in integrating into royal traditions.

Harry also shared the story of how he first introduced Meghan to Kate and Prince William.

Reflecting on their reactions, Harry noted, “I casually mentioned that there was … a new woman in my life. They surged forward.

‘Who is she?’” He continued, “’She’s an actress.’ ‘Oh?’ ‘She’s American.’ ‘Oh.’ ‘On a show called Suits.’ Their mouths fell open.

They turned to each other. Then Willy turned to me and said: ‘F—k off?’”

These anecdotes from Harry offer a glimpse into the early dynamics and cultural differences Meghan encountered within the royal family, highlighting both the challenges and the humorous misunderstandings that marked her initial introduction.
