Video, filmed outside Windsor Castle on Saturday, shows Meghan Markle holding flowers offered by the public.
A male clerk approaches her to unload her from the bouquet. Meghan gives him a gruff look for a split second before putting on a friendly face.
She appears to be telling him that she would like to lay the flowers herself, before turning to continue waving to the crowd.
A few moments later, another employee approaches her and offers to take the flowers. If Meghan seems to be fighting back, the employee explains the situation to her. Meghan finally gives her the flowers.
Several Twitter users commented on his actions.
“She wanted attention but her ambitions were held back by people who knew exactly what she was trying to achieve,” one viewer tweeted.
“She probably wanted to be filmed planting flowers there so we could see her in action. In fact, if you think about it, she really is a narcissist who always tries to do everything for her at every opportunity!
Other people gave Meghan the benefit of the doubt, saying she was just trying to mourn the Queen in peace and in her own way.
“I can’t believe Meghan’s bullying has already started! This is the first time she’s doing this kind of outing, she’s doing her best,” said one surfer.
“She probably didn’t realize that the flowers were being taken for security reasons. After all, there could be a small explosive device, nerve gas, poisonous insect, any number of things hidden inside,” said another person who said they knew royal protocol.
“Oh my god… leave the poor woman alone. Breathe… Be glad the whole world isn’t weighing on your every move. That’s enough! another person wrote.
Markle, 41, and Harry, 37, joined William and Kate, both 40, to lay flowers outside Windsor Castle to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II.
