Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their shock exit from the Royal Family in 2020 and relocated across the Atlantic with their new found freedom to Montecito, California.

Despite asking for privacy to start their new lives in America with their two kids Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, the Sussexes have slowly been easing themselves back into the public eye.

In recent weeks and months, the duke and duchess have returned to the limelight after a slew of public appearances including their joint appearance at the Invictus Games in September and Meghan’s outing to a Farmers’ Market in the summer.

The former royal couple have also been seen rubbing shoulders with Hollywood A-listers during various appearances at concerts in LA and Vegas.

However, with a series of public appearances comes a string of awkward blunders which Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seem to be prone to, the Mirror reports.

From an awkward mic snatch to looking out of place, here we take a closer look at some of the couple’s most cringe worthy moments in recent months.

Meghan’s mic snatch at Kevin Costner’s party

The Sussexes attended Kevin Costner’s One805 Live! charity event back in September which was held at the actor’s $26m polo-field in Santa Barbara.

While at the event, the couple got up on stage with Kevin, which is when the awkward moment unfolded.

Promoted Stories

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, one page shared footage of Meghan at the event with them pointing out the cringe filled blunder.

The clip showed Meghan walking towards a woman who was heading in her direction as she reached out for the microphone the woman was holding.

As the duchess went to grab the microphone, the lady held onto it tightly before Meghan broke her grasp as the woman walked past her.

The former actress seemed to quickly recover from the snub by directing the lady in the direction she was meant to be heading instead.

However, eagle eyed critics were quick to notice the error as one wrote: “She’s all manic over the attention she thinks the lady is giving her the microphone”.

Another commented: “Omg the second-hand embarrassment” while a third said: “Ouch so embarrassing!!”

A fourth then wrote: “But she wasn’t giving her the microphone.”

Harry looking out of place

Prince Harry was raised in England and lived there for his entire adult life up until several years ago so it’s not a surprise that living in the US has been a shock to his system.

Since rubbing shoulders with famous faces in LA, the duke has endured many awkward moments where he appears to be out of place.

One of these moments occurred at the charity event hosted by Kevin Costner as body language expert Judi James claimed the 39-year-old prince seemed “uncomfortable” at the bash.

She explained how Harry appeared to look “less comfortable, looking rather out of place in the celebrity surroundings”, while Meghan appeared “entranced”.

Harry looking ‘uncomfortable’ at Katy Perry’s gig

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a Katy Perry concert in Las Vegas earlier this month where they were again spotted with a bunch of A-listers, including Celine Dion.

Prince Harry seemed “uncomfortable”, and even looked a little angry, according to body language expert Judi James.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Harry might like to relish his role as the ‘cool one’ of the royal family but that is an extremely low bar, and seeing him mingling in the world of Hollywood celebrity again here his body language does define him as the proverbial fish out of water.

“It was Celine Dion getting all the fuss and star treatment here, while Harry appeared to be queuing to walk past her.

“In the UK he would have never been upstaged or outranked by a celebrity.”

Meghan breaking farmers’ market rules

Back in July, Meghan was seen out and about in California at the Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market.

The former actress was spotted alone as she wandered round the markets to browse the fresh goods that were on offer.

However, Meghan was said to have broken a rule that the market had at the time as she was spotted with her beagle and a security guard.

In a photo shared exclusively by Daily Mail, there is a sign at the market that reads: “NO DOGS ALLOWED with the exception of recognized (sp) service animals… we thank you for your understanding and cooperation.”

There was also a Yelp page for the market, with a question that reads: “Is it dog friendly?” and a response that says: “No dogs allowed, except service animals. There are signs at every entrance.”

Awkward pub outing

Another awkward public moment for the Sussexes’ happened just days ago as they attended the opening of a new veteran centre in San Diego.

Meghan was seen awkwardly ushering a gloomy Prince Harry forward as they joined officials to cut the opening ribbon for the new training facility.

The duke seemed to be slightly preoccupied during the visit which came after the couple said they had “no contact” from King Charles about his upcoming 75th birthday.

While the awkward usher took place, Harry was pictured with a glum expression in comparison to his beaming wife.

Meghan waved at the crowds outside before she and Harry entered the new building for a tour with the duchess seemingly leading her husband.
