A shocking video has resurfaced on Twitter which claims to show Meghan Markle and Prince Harry being asked to leave a very important royal function.

It comes on the heels of a startling claim about the pair’s first outing as a royal couple.

Following the publication of a ‘tell-all’ book this week, which claims Harry and Meghan’s first royal appearance as a married couple went down like a lead balloon after Meghan complained the event ‘was boring’, the rediscovered video has been shared online by royal watchers who believe it backs up the book’s shocking claims.

The video was taken at Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party, a garden party event at Buckingham Palace which was the royal couple’s first outing as newlyweds, just three days after they tied the knot.

It seems all was not peachy at the event however, with a video first published in 2019 resurfacing this week appearing to show Harry and Meghan seemingly being asked to leave the event.

The pair are spotted greeting guests when Harry is pulled aside by his father.

An unintelligible conversation occurs and Harry swiftly returns to Meghan, who appears confused, and the pair leave, Prince Charles walking off without saying goodbye to his new daughter-in-law.

Though Camilla comes up to kiss her new daughter-in-law farewell, Meghan, her face obstructed by her large hat, seems unsure of the situation, indicating it was an unexpected turn of events after Harry had made a speech just 15 minutes earlier.

The footage has sparked a heated debate online, as it comes on the heels of a controversial claim made in a brand new royal ‘tell-all’ by Lady Colin Campbell, Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.

In the book, Lady Colin claims Meghan demanded her and Prince Harry leave the event 15 minutes in, after she said she was ‘bored’.

Though Lady Colin’s claims have raised eyebrows and can’t be confirmed by the short video, her tell-all book about Princess Diana published in 1992 did contain previously unknown details that were later proven to be true, though she came under fire last month when she publicly defended Prince Andrew.

Experts refute ‘tense’ royal exit

Additionally, though some online users claim the footage shows Meghan and Harry being asked to leave after the alleged incident, others say the footage is not as acrimonious as it seems.

A lip-reading expert told The Daily Mail that the exchange was not one of ‘angst’ and that the four royals had just stated their intentions to catch up later in the day.

Meghan and Harry have since left their senior royal roles to pursue a less public life in the United States, though they recently signed with an A-list speaking agency in a potential million-dollar move that could see their individual voice amplified for the first time since they left the UK.

Add to that another tell-all book on the way, that is the pair’s biography Finding Freedom and the Making of A Modern Royal Family, and we’re sure to hear a different side of the story before too long.
