Friends ‘stop inviting’ Meghan and Harry over

They’ve been holding hands, gazing into each other’s eyes and smooching since the day they met, but it seems not everyone is a fan of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s public displays of affection.

In fact, it’s now being claimed by the Mail on Sunday that Harry’s close knit group of friends have even stopped inviting them to dinner parties because they insist on sitting next to each other and they make other guests uncomfortable.

According to the publication, it’s 'frowned upon' around aristocratic circles to engage in any sort of display of affection around the dinner table as it will ‘put guests off their food’.

It’s also claimed Meghan is not a fan of the old-fashioned tradition of seating couples apart at events and prefers to shun it when she goes out with Harry.

While the Sussexes’ friends might snigger at Harry and Meghan’s loved-up antics, it’s previously been claimed that their hand-holding was rubbing off on Kate Middleton and Prince William.

“Now that Meghan has joined The Firm, her own determinedly tactile behaviour with Harry does seem to have had a profound ‘echo’ effect on William and Kate’s rituals,” body language expert, Judi James, told the Mail Online.

According to Judy, the Duke of Cambridge has previously “erred on the side of bland” when it came to his relationship with the Duchess as to make sure there’s been no “signs of rifts, fallings-out or disagreements”.

She believes being around Sussexes is what has reignited the sparks in Kate and Wills’ marriage.

“When a couple have been married several years it can often take family newlyweds like Harry and Meghan to rekindle some more public displays of romance like this,” she said.

However, while Meghan and Harry might be the cutest couple in the room at some functions, they’re never seen showing affection while in the presence of the Queen.
