What Allegedly Went Down At Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday Garden Party With Meghan?

Garden Party; protocol

Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party in 2018 was meant to be a milestone celebration but was nearly upended by Meghan…

To reach the age of 70 is a massive achievement for any person, but it’s more special when you’ll one day become King. In 2018, Prince Charles celebrated his 70th birthday early with a garden party. This event took place just days after the wedding of his second son, Prince Harry, and American actress, Meghan Markle. While the day was filled to the brim with charity patrons and members of his family, there was almost drama.

According to, Lady Colin Campbell reported in June 2020 that Meghan allegedly almost caused drama at the garden party. From what she explains in her book, Harry and Meghan: The Real Story, the Duchess of Sussex wanted to leave after 15 minutes. We wrote about this claim when it came out. But, we’re going to go over the situation in more detail.

Lady C allegedly learned of this information a few days after the garden party. She had dinner with one of the guests that was present. According to what she was allegedly told, Meghan shook hands with people and then turned to Harry and apparently said the following:

Harry, this is really boring. Let’s leave.

What Meghan allegedly told Harry at Prince Charles’ garden party.

Apparently, Harry wasn’t blinded to her and told her they couldn’t leave as they had only just gotten there. She allegedly then continued to whinge:

But Harry, this is so boring. We’ve done our bit. Everyone knows we’ve been here. Let’s go.

Meghan allegedly continues to complain about being bored.

Wait… There’s More To The Story…

Meghan was caught on camera sticking her tongue out at allegedly her stepmother-in-law, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall as seen in the photo below. According to Christopher Jones on Quora who was actually at the event, a lot of speculation at the time suggested that the reason for the tongue poking was because of a fight. However, he says that it was just something that she does. He wasn’t close enough to see what was actually happening but murmurs sounded around the crowd that something had gone down.

Because of this alleged ‘row’, the couple left the event which was caught on camera as well which is seen in this article by Yahoo.

There has also been speculation surrounding something else that happened. Apparently, Meghan also accepted gifts that were meant for her father-in-law, thinking they were for her. Um… first off, who does that? Also, did she not realise that the event was for Prince Charles and that she was just a guest because she married his son? Whatever happened was just the beginning of the Sussexes’ downfall.
