After attending a Wimbledon match at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 4, Meghan Markle came under fire due to her bodyguards prohibiting the public from taking photographs of the royal family member at the event, per Express. However, according to royal expert Dickie Arbiter, the issues may have come as a result of "miscommunication" between the royals and their security team.

When discussing the potential misunderstanding with Arbiter on Nine News Australia, host Georgie Gardner said there was "no doubt" the Duchess of Sussex and husband Prince Harry have faced "a fair bit of criticism" recently. He added, "And you sort of wonder - just how much more they can take of it before things turn really quite nasty?"

"It's interesting," replied Arbiter, "They've got a new press secretary, Sara Latham. And I wonder whether they are listening to her or whether she is advising them."

Continuing, he explained that in many instances new staff members do not know "how to take them."

"They're afraid of offending them. They're afraid of actually saying 'no, you cannot do that,'" he added. This, he stated, results in the royal family members not being advised at all, or being advised incorrectly. "And if the advice is going to them and they're not listening then they'll just have to suffer the consequences," he added.

As reported by "Good Morning America," Meghan also faced backlash for having rows of empty seats surrounding her and her two friends at the event, leading to speculation that she or her security may have requested the extra space.
