Footage of the incident has since been released and shows Markle being escorted out of the market while members of her staff clear the way.
The latest member of her security detail is a woman, whose identity cannot be disclosed due to the nature of her job.
Nevertheless, the police officer was armed and ready even though cut an unusually glamorous figure in a black skirt and shirt with beige high-heels.
The Duchess didn't seem overly concerned, and smiled and waved at the crowd as she was escorted out.
A royal aide told Daily Mail that Markle "met everyone she was meant to meet and left," and explained that she was removed due to a "management issue."

Markle addressed students at the South Pacific University hours earlier, saying "Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want."
She wore traditional garlands and a pink outfit as she took the podium and was dressed in a beautiful pink outfit. Her hair was styled in the signature "Meghan bun."

The Duchess said that as a university graduate, she knows the "feeling of pride and excitement that comes with attending university," and added that she's also aware of the challenges.
She explained: "It was through scholarships, financial aid programs and work-study where my earnings from a job on campus went directly towards my tuition – that I was able to attend university."
She underlined that was all worth the effort and highlighted that it's vital for women to have access to higher education.
Harry listened to her speech and was in admiration of his wife, telling the students that there he was no way he could follow up on that.
