Could it be a case of sabotage or does Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle truly not have what it takes to be a princess?
Judging by the pictures of her beach wedding with ex-husband Trevor Engelson, the royal family may not be too pleased. Pictures show the 35 year old wearing a skimpy, yellow polka-dot bikini and baseball cap.
Described as “a bit of a beach bum”, she can be seen taking part in a wheelbarrow race with a bottle of local lager Red Stripe. The beach-themed wedding took place in 2011 in front of 100 guests in Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios after seven years of dating.
Markle has hogged the media spotlight amid a wave of abuse and harassment which saw the Kensington Palace issuing a public statement in November last year calling on people to stop harassing her.
“Some of this has been very public. The smear on the front page of a national newspaper, the racial undertones of comment pieces and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls,” the statement read.
The compromising photos come hardly two months after she received a backlash from fans when a scene from season three of her TV show, Suits, showed her in bed with her costar Patrick J Adams.
The question of sabotage has emerged based on the timing of the release of the photos as she’s expected to accompany Harry to her best friend, Tom Inskip’s, wedding in Jamaica.
Harry will be the best man, giving Markle a starring role by association.
