Meghan Markle was accused of pushing her husband, Prince Harry, out of the way.

Royal correspondent Rebecca English shared a clip of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they attended the Endeavour Awards. However, the online users reacted with dismay because they weren’t seeing any sign of affection when Markle touched her husband’s back and pushed him away to shake hands with the person they were talking to.

“That isn’t PDA. That was Meghan interrupting their conversation, pulling him back so she could step in front of him to take over the conversation. I don’t care, it’s their marriage and I will never judge about that. But the video is clear, please don’t mislead or sugar coat,” one commented.

“She did it from day one - control Harry by touching him and pushing herself in front of him. Probably teaching him as a true gentleman and feminist you let your wife walk first. Well, no one will miss them,” @spotterdotter added.

“That's not PDA, that's a control gesture from her and him shrugging it off.  That doesn't take a body language expert to see it,” @RF_Observer opined.

“Ohhhh my goodness!! She never changes and Harry dutifully takes the backseat!!” another online user wrote.

“That was clearly an ‘ahem...remember your place...I'm first thankyouverymuch’” @time_java commented.

Contrary to what the online users observed, body language expert Judi James said that the couple are still very much in love. In fact, their sweet gestures suggest that they were still on honeymoon stage.

“Their rituals of intimate touch and intense, adoring eye-gazing are usually most common during the honeymoon period of a relationship when romantic traits are the norm. They still perform them well beyond that period,” James said.

Meanwhile, the couple got booed on their return engagement. However, some netizens weren’t surprised. In fact, many wanted them to get booed before the actual event because they weren’t happy after the couple decided to stepped down as senior members of the royal family.
