Meghan was spotted accompanying Harry at a polo event in California on Sunday.

She presented her husband and his polo team Los Padres the Lisle Nixon Memorial trophy, after they won the event at the Santa Barbara Polo & racquet Club.

In an awkward encounter, the Duchess of Sussex appeared squashed between her husband and a teammate as they lifted the winning trophy.

Sporting a polka dot blouse and white Khaite Bermuda shorts, the Duchess swiftly moved into the shadows before stepping forward under her husband's arms.

The star-studded match attracted the likes of Abigail Spencer, Meghan's former Suits co-star.

The couple have been attending events in preparation for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Weekend, but speculation has mounted over the release date of the Prince's memoir.

The Duke and Duchess have been spotted at a number of events in recent weeks in hopes to maintain their celebrity status.

Royal expert Richard Eden insinuated on the Palace Confidential podcast that the couple are overcommitting themselves to maintain their celebrity status.

He added: "I do sense there's a bit of trouble there really."

Continuing his concerns, Mr Eden believed there has been a shift in the couple's views as in the past they had only appeared at significant events together.

The royal expert said: “I remember writing about the polo back in Britain years ago that Meghan wasn’t very keen for Harry to play in polo matches unless it could be guaranteed that it would raise £1million for charity each time.

“She felt that it was kind of beneath him to be playing in matches that would just make a few thousand pounds when he should be going for the big ticket matches.

But we’ve got Meghan turning up at all these events, handing over trophies, the same way she turned up at the Invictus Games and, to me, that’s an indication that all’s not well.”

Mr Eden noted how the couple have adapted their schedule to coincide with their new working lives as celebrities, adding that the cancelling of Meghan's Netflix show Pearl as and example.

The Duke and Duchess are currently preparing for their first major trip to the UK since their departure to the US in 2020, for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Buckingham Palace announced that Meghan and Harry will not be accompanying members of the Royal Family on the Buckingham Palace balcony at Trooping the Colour, as they are no longer working royals.

In an exclusive interview with GB News presenter Dan Wootton, Samantha Markle slammed her sister for not contacting her dad after he was "tortured" by the media.

Thomas Markle suffered a severe stroke earlier this week, Meghan's sister confirmed.

Probed by Dan over whether Meghan had contacted her family since the incident, Samantha replied "no".
