She offered a handshake — but received a metaphorical slap to the face instead.
Meghan Markle has been spectacularly snubbed by three British women as she tried to shake their hands outside Windsor Castle.
The former “Suits” star, 41, appeared alongside Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton outside the castle Saturday as they greeted crowds mourning the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Markle — whose popularity has plummeted in the UK since she quit the royal family in 2019 — received a mostly warm welcome, but three mourners weren’t so receptive when the ex-actress extended her hand.
Viral video shows Markle walking past the trio, who were standing behind a barricade. The duchess offers her hand to the first young woman who appears to offer nothing but an icy smirk back. A second young woman busies herself by adjusting her sunglasses so as not to greet Markle. Meanwhile, a third, older woman keeps her head down and refuses to put out her hand to meet Markle’s.
The “Archetypes” podcast host seemingly took the snubs in stride, simply moving on to the next group of mourners.
Some cheered on the women on Twitter, with one writing: “Lady in blue & others ARE ALL OF US. They refuse to shake hands with Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Netflix. This speaks volumes. She needs to go back to California asap. You are truly hated for your disrespect of the UK.”
It’s not the first video from Saturday’s Markle meet-and-greet to go viral.
The duchess and Harry shocked royal watchers when they appeared alongside William and Kate for their first public appearance as a quartet since early 2020.
Harry has reportedly been estranged from William after he and Markle trashed the royal family in a bombshell Oprah interview early last year.
Over the weekend, a separate video showed Markle chatting with aides over floral tributes — seemingly confused about royal protocol.
Markle was seen holding a bouquet given to her by a mourner when a royal aide approached to ask whether he could take the flowers off her hands.
Markle appeared to decline the offer and told the aide she was going to put them down herself before turning back to the crowd with the bundle still in her arms. But moments later, another aide walked up and reached for the bouquet. Markle seemed to resist at first, but after the aide appeared to explain the situation, she obliged and handed over the floral arrangement.
The duchess is expected to remain the UK until the queen’s funeral Sept. 19.
She has also suspended the release of her new “Archetypes” podcast episodes as a show of respect for the late monarch.
