Markle Faces Backlash After Social Media Post

Hello everyone! Gather around because we’ve got some sizzling news involving Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and their good friend, the polo player Nacho Figueras. This story has it all: royalty, drama, and a bit of controversy. So let’s dive right in!

So, what’s the scoop? Nacho Figueras, a close friend of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, recently posted about Markle’s lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard, on his Instagram stories. He shared a picture of a pot of jam and a jar of dog biscuits from the Duchess’s new brand. Now, you might be wondering, why is this a big deal?

Well, here’s where the drama kicks in. Figueras’ post showed up in the feeds of his UK followers in the early hours of Saturday morning, just before the Trooping the Colour ceremony, a major event honoring King Charles III’s birthday.

This timing is crucial because Kate Middleton, who had been away from the public eye due to her ongoing cancer treatment, had announced she would be attending the ceremony. Fans were quick to express their outrage, accusing Figueras of trying to overshadow Middleton’s return to the spotlight.

One fan on X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote, “We won’t forget what you did Nacho @nachofigueras. Attempting to upstage Catherine POW whilst she’s battling cancer is the lowest of the low & demonstrates a lack of class & integrity.” Another chimed in, saying, “That was a very nasty symbolic message you sent at 2am in the morning to Catherine [Princess of Wales], on behalf of the malignant narcissist. Not good optics for someone who claims to be a caring charitable man.”

But not everyone saw it this way. Some pointed out that posting a picture of jam and dog biscuits wasn’t as big of a deal as it was being made out to be. One person asked, “Explain how posting a picture of jam and biscuits is an attempt to upstage Kate? I will repeatedly ask you until you do.” Another added, “Does anyone think that Nacho Figueras rings up [Kensington Palace] to ask, ‘Is Kate coming out today?’ before he posts to his social media? Seriously?”

Figueras, who has been friends with Prince Harry for nearly 20 years, is known for his support of the royal couple. He and his wife even attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018. Figueras has previously shown support for Markle’s brand, sharing photos of her products and praising them.

In response to the backlash, Figueras has remained silent, and his representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment. However, his past posts and interviews highlight his close relationship with Prince Harry. In an interview with Hello!, Figueras spoke about their friendship, saying, “We stay in touch a lot, which is amazing to be able to, you know, have a friendship that feels like although sometimes we’re not together-together, we are always together.”

The timing of Figueras’ post might have been unfortunate, but whether it was intentional or just a coincidence remains unclear. Regardless, it’s clear that this incident has stirred quite the reaction among fans and followers of the British royals.

So, there you have it, folks! Another day, another drama in the world of royalty. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates and let’s see how this story unfolds!
