Meghan Markle and Harry caught up in embarrassing game show blunder – ‘taped months ago!’


MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry were recently caught up in an embarrassing game show blunder.

The couple sensationally stepped down as senior royals in January and vowed to become “financially independent”. The joke was made on ‘Don’t’, a new American gameshow hosted by actor Adam Scott.

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is also featured as a voiceover, though he doesn’t appear physically.

In a segment called ‘Don’t Get Tired’ Mr Scott asked the contestants: “Meghan Markle went from ‘Suits’ to crowns after she married into the royal family.

“Before she resigned, what was her official title?”

According to entertainment site US Weekly, Mr Scott tweaked the second bit of the question as the camera panned away.

The games, the names of each of which begin with ‘Don’t’, are alternated so different teams have to complete different tasks.

Meghan and Harry are currently living in Los Angeles.

During the lockdown the couple were stopped delivering food to vulnerable LA residents.

Los Angeles have been badly hit by coronavirus with bars and restaurants recently being ordered to close for a second time as the number of COVID-19 cases surged.

Last month the city also saw massive protests, some of which turned violent, following the death of George Floyd as he was being detained by police in Minneapolis.

In response for a number of days a night time curfew was put in place across the city.

Back in January Harry and Meghan said they planned to split their time between North America and the UK.

The couple also pledged to repay the taxpayer money spent refurbishing their Frogmore Cottage home near Windsor.

Announcing their departure as senior royals the couple said: “We have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”
