The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are no strangers when it comes to showing off their love for each other – from hand holding to back rubbing.
But their friends have reportedly had enough – with the couple apparently often making a point of sitting together at events, even if seated separately.
Meghan reportedly wants to break the long-standing party etiquette of sitting apart as she considers it too “exclusive” and “traditional”.
And as well as ignoring the seating plans, the Mail on Sunday claims insiders say the Duchess is openly affectionate with her husband on these occasions.
This has apparently been causing Harry’s friends to “roll their eyes” at her “American ways”.
Because of this, Harry’s inner circle has now reportedly “stopped inviting Meghan to dinner” over the “frowned upon” PDAs (public displays of affection) at the dinner table.
The high society occasions that Meghan and Harry have been attending apparently asks guests to follow the three rules of “placement”.
The first rule is that “placement” must be pronounced the French way, which involves emphasising each of the three syllables.
The second rule is said to order that couples should not sit together in case any affectionate behaviour puts others off their meal.
On top of that, guests must also always sit where they have been asked, in order to achieve the perfect, balanced high society table.
This news comes as reports emerge that Harry read the “riot act” to Prince William and Kate Middleton over Meghan Markle, which allegedly first sparked the “royal feud”.
