The Royal Family have taken a subtle swipe at Meghan Markle after claims she made in the newly released Netflix documentary.

The Duchess of Sussex confessed she avoided colourful outfits while in the UK over fears that she would clash with the Queen and other more senior female royals.

Meghan said she opted for “muted tones” of beige, white and camel so she could blend in.

“There was thought in that. To my understanding, you can’t ever wear the same colour as Her Majesty if there’s a group event.” She said.

“But then you also shouldn’t be wearing the same colour as one of the other more senior members of family.

“So I was like well, what’s a colour that they’ll probably never wear?

“Camel, beige, white? So I wore a lot of muted tones but it also was so I could just blend in. Like I’m not trying to stand out here.

“There’s no version of me joining this family and trying to not do everything I could to fit in. I don’t want to embarrass the family.”

However, the Royal Family appeared to mock the comments last week when multiple senior members of the Royal Family wore burgundy.

The Royal Family put on a united front at Westminster Abbey just hours after the final part of the Sussexes’ documentary dropped on Netflix.

The King, the Queen Consort and Prince of Wales joined Kate and the wider royal family for her festive concert on Thursday evening.

Sharing his analysis of the event, GB News’ royal reporter Cameron Walker said: “We saw Princess Charlotte, we saw Zara Tindall, who is the late Queen's granddaughter and even Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton wear burgundy, a very festive colour, but nonetheless the same colour, which totally contradicts what Meghan Markle says is royal dress protocol.

“So many have questioned whether this was the Royal Family's deliberate attempt to undermine what Meghan Markle said in this documentary series.

“In my experience, nothing in the royal family happens by accident.”

He continued: “But was it a deliberate attempt by the royal family to undermine Meghan? I doubt it. I don't think they would stoop that low to have this Hollywood style tit for tat exchange with Meghan Markle.

“Kate's focus, at least and the Royal Family's focus, was very much on this carol service, shining a light on communities across the UK and paying tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

“However, I do see a situation, and I can imagine members of the Royal Family are becoming increasingly frustrated by Harry and Meghan appearing to overshadow a number of important engagements.

“Now, reports this morning suggest that the royal family are baffled that Harry and Meghan are demanding an apology following what they said in the documentary series.

“This has not been confirmed by Buckingham Palace or Kensington Palace. They are very much staying silent.

“I think for the King at least, his focus is very much on preparing for his first festive speech, which will be broadcast on Christmas Day.”
