Meghan is accused of breaching Wimbledon etiquette by wearing jeans in a members-only area during her visit to watch Serena Williams

Meghan has been accused of falling foul of Wimbledon etiquette on her surprise visit to cheer on Serena Williams last week - because she was wearing jeans in a members' only area.

Palace officials claimed the Duchess of Sussex, 37, attended the All England Club in a 'private capacity' last Thursday, telling fans not to take photos of her.

She sat in an exclusive area of the crowd on Court 1 to watch her friend Serena, 37, beat Kaja Juvan in the second round.

But club sources say she was a 'nightmare' to accommodate, with her casual attire and 'self-regarding paranoia'.


An official tasked with organising the event told The Times: 'It was a nightmare, she was a nightmare.'

An England Club insider told the newspaper she was not supposed to be wearing jeans for the seats she had, saying: 'She wanted to come incognito but there were problems.

'They couldn't invite her into the royal box because she was wearing jeans but that didn't really matter because all she wanted to do was come and watch Serena.'

The source claimed it was fortunate Andy Murray was playing on the same court after Serena, as she would not have been allowed in the Royal Box on Centre Court with jeans on- despite being a member of the royal family.
