In an interview with Beauty Banter, the Duchess has previously spoken about how she "religiously" uses the Kérastase's Oléo-Relax frizz-smoothing products. Interestingly, Meghan's sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, is also said to be a fan of the line.

Although Meghan's exact haircare routine is not confirmed, it is reported that Kérastase's Oléo-Relax line is a staple in her beauty regime.

The couple appeared on the big screen at the arena, and the footage was published in a YouTube video by The Telegraph. However, things got interesting when many in the crowd encouraged the couple to kiss.

Harry appeared to lean in for a smooch, but Meghan playfully turned away and clutched his arm instead. This moment was caught on camera and quickly circulated on social media.

This is a surprising move for the couple known for being affectionate in public. During their time as senior working royals, the lovebirds often kissed and held hands publicly.

Their behavior set them apart from other royal pairs who appeared less inclined to show public displays of affection.

The courtside incident happened shortly after news broke that Meghan would not attend King Charles III's coronation with her husband.

Why Won't Meghan Attend Prince Charles' Coronation?

After much wondering and speculation, it was finally confirmed whether Harry would fly to his home country and attend King Charles' coronation alone or with his wife and children. The couple decided Meghan and their children would stay home and not travel to the United Kingdom for the event.

According to a statement from Buckingham Palace, "The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet."

This upcoming trip in May marks Harry's first journey back home, where he will reunite with his family since much drama has unfolded in America.

The announcement by the palace put an end to months of questions about whether the couple would attend the event following the controversy surrounding their Netflix docuseries, "Harry & Meghan," and Harry's memoir "Spare," which was released in January.

Royal and PR experts have said it was an intelligent move by Charles to invite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex despite all their family issues.
