“What she failed to realise is that royals work very hard doing frankly, deadly dull things.
“She obviously found them too dull.”
Speaking at the Invictus Games, Meghan acknowledged her lateness, saying: “It’s so special to be here and I’m sorry I’m a little late for the party.
“I had to spend a little more time getting our little ones settled at home and get them to drop off.

“Three milkshakes and a school drop-off and I just landed a couple of hours ago, and I am thrilled that the first event I can do for Invictus is here with all of you,” she continued.
“It’s amazing and I hear it has got off to a good start so far.”
Meghan did not attend the opening days of the games as she spent time with her two young children in Los Angeles instead, but stated she was “thrilled” the finally be a part of the event.
The Invictus Games was launched by Prince Harry for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, and first held in 2014.

The international multi-sport event was where Harry and Meghan famously appeared in public together for the first time in 2017, when it was held in Toronto.
Harry and Meghan remain distant from Royal Family affairs after they sensationally announced they were stepping back from their brief in 2020.
Ties have been further severed by bombshell interviews and productions such as Harry’s memoir Spare, which included a string of bombshell claims about members of the royal establishment such as Prince William and King Charles.
The strained reality of Harry’s relationship with his family was laid bare by the Duke’s recent trip to the UK, which came before his trip to Dusseldorf.
He joined the WellChild Awards and visited St George’s Chapel in Windsor on the anniversary of the death of his grandmother, the late Queen Elizabeth II.
