Meghan Markle was joined by two of her close pals Genevieve Hillis and Lindsay Roth as she watched Serena Williams play at the prestigious tennis tournament.
It’s now been reported that tennis fans sitting around The Duchess of Sussex were requested to not take pictures of her as a respect for her privacy.
Media consultant Sally Jones told The Daily Telegraph that she was ordered to not take any pictures of Meghan because she was at the event “in a private capacity”.
She wrote in a column: "Watching Serena Williams in action on Court 1 at Wimbledon, I was happily snapping shots of the superstar American powering down huge serves when I felt a tap on my shoulder.
"Would you not take photographs of the Duchess,' a voice ordered politely. 'She’s here in a private capacity.'
"No wonder there is a growing tide of resentment against the Sussexes for their secretive, high maintenance attitude and diva-ish demands for privacy when it suits them – despite the eye-wateringly expensive, taxpayer-funded refit of Frogmore Cottage."

She added: “I think this royal protection officer was quite embarrassed.
“He appeared a bit mystified as to why he was being asked to make such a request.
“I told him it was bonkers and that even if I had been trying to snap the Duchess I’d have got a blurry picture of her right ear.”

A palace source told Daily Star Online: “It’s not unusual for people accompanying Members of the Royal Family at private, or public, events to ask members of the public not to take photographs.
“It is to enable Members of the Royal Family to engage with people and events.”
Meghan wore a white pinstriped blazer with a black top and denim jeans for the outing, while she also wore a gold necklace with an 'A' on it – likely a nod to her baby son, Archie.
