Meghan Markle Was Just Called a "Nightmare" by a Wimbledon Official for Wearing Jeans

Meghan Markle Was Just Called a "Nightmare" by a Wimbledon Official for Wearing Jeans

Um, what?

Meghan Markle's low-key outing to see friend Serena Williams play tennis at Wimbledon has turned into one huge drama. First, people were upset with the duchess for her no-photo policy while sitting in the stands, and, now, a Wimbledon official just called her a "nightmare" for committing a fashion faux pas at the games.

For the occasion, Meghan kept it casual in a white and black pinstripe blazer with a T-shirt underneath and jeans. Apparently, it's against etiquette to wear denim in the All England Club members' area where Meghan was sitting, so a lot of people are in an uproar.

The Times UK spoke to several on-lookers at the event, and one official said: "It was a nightmare, she was a nightmare." Meanwhile, one club member explained why there were so many issues with Meghan's appearance (in addition to her denim-wearing ways).

"She wanted to come incognito but there were problems. They couldnít invite her into the royal box because she was wearing jeans but that didnít really matter because all she wanted to do was come and watch Serena," the source said. "Andy Murray was on Court 1 afterwards and it was a massive faux pas not to watch a Brit when she is signed up to the Royal Family."

Understandably, rules are rules, but attacking someone for wearing jeans to a tennis match is a bit extreme.

Oh give me a fuckin' break. Leave this woman alone and get a life! Stuffed shirts.

Oh, really? First of all the Royal Box is in Centre Court...so that's already a HUGE lie. Serena was NOT playing on Centre Court so how could Meghan expect to sit in the Royal box? Leave this woman alone!

Maybe it was a fashion faux pas in the 1950s, which is where these stuffy cretins seem to be stuck in.

They trying to treat Meghan like TF haters treats Serena, but like Serena Meghan doesn't give a damn about them.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

She wasn't called a nightmare just because of her jeans. You are really twisting what happened for outrage.

For outrage? I'm laughing at the Wimbledon official's outrage. Did you not see the meme? And I'm all but certain it wasn't just because of her jeans. But since you seem to think you know everything, please indulge us with the the details.

SN: And how is copy-n-pasting a story "twisting" it?

But that's at work not at a tennis match.
