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 couldn’t invite her into the royal box because she was wearing jeans but that didn’t 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. :rolleyes: 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.

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. :lol: 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? :confused:

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

Considering the nature of the Wimbledon club, its not surprising they have a dress code. I'm sure Americans would have clubs where there are dress codes.

Mostly, everyone is missing the point. She was not banned. She broke Wimbledon etiquette.

The same etiquette that insists that players wear white and helps make Wimbledon what it is, the #1 tournament in the world.

Wimbledon is a private club and has every right to have dress standards in its members’ area. The members decide that, not the public.
