The Daily Mail reported that when Prince William and Kate Middleton entered the royal box at Wimbledon Women’s Finals, people clapped for them except for the “Baywatch“ star, who opted to play with her scarf.

“In a newly emerged clip, the actress, 38, opted to fiddle with her scarf as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, took their seats to rapturous applause from the crowd ahead of the Women's Singles Final on Saturday.

“Several royal watchers suggested it was a snub after the Duchess of Sussex, 39, made remarks about Kate during her Oprah Winfrey interview,” reported the publication.

While some accused Chopra of being rude and ill-mannered, others applauded her for standing up for her dear friend, Markle, whom she met at a television dinner in 2016.

In a tell-all with Oprah Winfrey, Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, spoke about the mistreatment they received from the royal house.

Markle spoke about how Middleton made her cry before her wedding in 2018 over the dresses for the flower girls.

She also opened up about the royal house refusing to make her son, Archie, a prince and that several members of the royal house made comments about how dark Archie would be.
