Meghan Markle displayed royal self-control after athlete broke protocol by kissing her

Meghan Markle had yet another surprise during her royal tour when a Dutch athlete at the Invictus Games kissed her on the cheek as she was greeting the players.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to Sydney, Australia, to attend the closing ceremony of the 2018 edition of the Invictus Games.

The peculiar and funny moment was caught on camera and was later shared by Kensington Palace on its official Twitter page.

A CURIOUS GESTURE

The 37-year-old, who is currently expecting a child, certainly wasn't expecting to get a peck on the cheek during a public event, especially from a stranger.

Usually, every situation is handled very professionally and people tend to have a certain respect when in front of members of the Royal Family.

SUCH GRACE

The player, whose name is yet to be revealed, wasn't disrespectful, but it was quite odd seeing someone other than Prince Harry kissing the Duchess of Sussex.

In the Netherlands, greeting kisses are customary, although the gesture often includes three kisses. But Meghan was a true lady and simply smiled and continued with her royal duties as if nothing had happened.

Dressed in a maroon top designed by Scanlan Theodore, one of Australia's top brands, and dark pants, Meghan awarded medals to basketball players from both America and the Netherlands.

A HIDDEN TALENT

Harry and Meghan stopped by Sydney for the closing ceremony, but even before it started, the Duchess revealed a skill that, so far, no one knew she possessed.

Just like Kate Middleton, the 37-year-old seems quite comfortable with a camera in her hands and her eye for photography is truly remarkable.

Meghan showed her talent as a photographer by taking a lovely picture of her husband practicing his speech on stage, and the snap was quickly shared with the world through Twitter.
