Duchess Meghan has been wrongfully accused of being ‘bossy’ at the polo match

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s polo date in Miami was fantastic. Every photo from the event was gorgeous – Meghan looked rich, Harry looked hot, and they are such a watchable and charismatic couple. Once the photos and videos came out, people were commenting with stuff like “Yeah I can see why they were mad” and “Get away from your toxic family so you can flourish.” Whenever Meghan and Harry show up somewhere looking happy, wealthy, tan and gorgeous, the haters lose their everloving minds. Which is where we are now. Those miserable people did a forensic examination of every video and photo and they are trying to make “Meghan had an awkward interaction” into a thing. This is the interaction:

The woman is Dr. Sophie Chandauka, and she is the chair of Sentebale. The whole polo match was a fundraiser to benefit Sentebale and they brought in over $1 million, incidentally. So Dr. Chandauka was brought on stage after the match so they could all pose for photos. Dr. Chandauka somewhat awkwardly tried to pose beside Harry, perhaps unaware of what angle the photos would be taken. Meghan is overheard saying “do you want to come over here?” as she motioned to her side (Meghan’s left). Like… have you guys never tried to coordinate a group photo where people don’t know how to position themselves? It was a brief moment where Meghan and Dr. Chandauka were trying to work out where to stand, that’s it. But now the Mail and other outlets are trashing Meghan for being “rude” or “bossy.” Utterly asinine.

Also – I’ve seen the Derangers suggest that Meghan didn’t want Dr. Chandauka to stand next to Harry. Please, Meghan knows her husband – Harry was not letting go of Meghan whatsoever. Meghan had no choice but to move closer to Harry and make space for Dr. Chandauka on her other side. They also coordinated the photos so that the three women were in the center, bracketed by the polo dudes. Oh, and in a different moment, Meghan wasn’t on the stage and Harry and Dr. Chandauka posed side-by-side.

    It’s just a video of Meghan being thoughtful and practical.

    • Moni says:

      Right! Meh, another day, the sun rises and these people found a new angle to push hate.🤷🏼‍♀️ It was a great event which raised a tremendous amount of donations for Losetho and Botswana children.

      “never seek to learn about someone from their enemies “ I don’t look to any of the British Media or media pundits or any journalists or TV personality for any information about Meghan. If it is UK or UK adjacent and her name is mentioned, I dismiss it. The media establishment there has been consistent with one thing since she met her now husband, they don’t like her and they don’t want her to be seen in any positive light at all and they want her to not thrive. so I see that they will always aim to pollute every narrative and leverage their hate-fueled approach for money and publicity.
      As a consumer, I have made peace with it and therefore never take my perspective of her from anything or anyone associated with the U.K. I don’t see them as a credible nor trustworthy nor reliable source with anything related with her. The beauty of Apple News is I have trained the algorithm to not show me any British or Australian media sourced news about her. It is what it is.

      They were like vultures with this angle on X because as soon as they found this twist and saw it was tracking with audience engagement, they all gleefully landed and gobbled it up and start spreading it. I am sure both ladies know it’s not what the media and clout chasers are saying. We see many pictures of positive engagement. No need to try convincing the enemy of someone that their view of them is distorted by their own negative filled agenda. Just have to pray that God Bless these journalists and all her enemies with love, light & positivity to emerge from this dark space they have volunteered themselves to reside it. Love & Light to All✨

        I’m right here with you. I don’t click on any British Media article about Meghan ☹ I am not a hater, I am not their targeted audience so I just keep scrolling 😏 The haters are so so stupid, the British Media is making millions of their backs 😮😮😮 while they are acusing everybody else of being money hungry.

    • Deering24 says:

      Yeesh, these people. If Meghan had gotten in the middle, they would have accused her of hogging the picture. From a composition POV, it made sense for the doctor to stand in the middle, since she was getting honored and was the pix center.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        I was going to comment the same thing. By standing next to Meghan, it put her in the center and the focal point of the photo, as she should have been. Talk about much ado about nothing!

      • Kathleen says:

        UK tabloids were invited to the polo fund raiser; NOT ONE, Yet they have secured footage after the fact and in every tabloid newsroom, there is a frame by frame analysis of every moment of the day and evening. They are not done yet. Every new piece of footage will trigger numerous assaults. What about Kate? Does anyone remember her?

    • SarahLee says:

      Yes, how rude! Meghan puts another woman in the center of the photo clearly showing what a selfish woman she is. Good grief.

  2. sevenblue says:

    lol. Dan is so jobless. It is remarkable he is still a free man after all the illegal sh*t he did got public.

    • Ginger says:

      Sad little man is trying to get more views for his sad little YouTube channel. I can’t believe they are trying to make this a thing. It’s clear the chairwoman didn’t know exactly where to stand and Meghan was helping her. Kate could slap someone on stage and the press would fawn over her and say how classy she is.

    • Kelsey says:

      LOL BRB…going to twitter to tell Dan Whooping Cough “You’re just jobless”

    • Lau says:

      How is he still a thing I can’t understand it. Dude, just disapear from public life, go to prison and leave us be !

  3. Mslove says:

    Keen has been missing for months and Peg wants to be a WFH king, but sure, let’s be outraged at Duchess Meghan for coordinating a photo.

    • SussexWatcher says:

      Exactly. It’s just a distraction from the real story about what’s happening with the Cracked Huevo and his disappeared wife. Dan the YouTuber is desperate for clicks and attention and being a liar and manufacturer of outrage is the only way he knows how.

    • PC says:

      And this is why God made receipts. They all forgot or don’t want to remember that Kate is the one who always shows out in public. Kate is the mean girl with no self control or situational awareness. Remember her at that Commonwealth Service, the walk about after the Queen’s death… or Ascot?

    • GTwiecz says:

      Again seeing information about law enforcement folks spilling the beans in the UK talking about “W beat her into a coma”. Which matches the Spanish reporter. And explains the montage photos and fake/AI videos.

  4. Theresa says:

    They are just trying to support their narrative of Meghan being controlling and insecure in her relationship with Harry. They just can’t accept the fact that the wild child Prince actually found his Princess and is actually happy and in love.

    • Laura D says:

      Exactly @Theresa they’ve spent years trying to find actual evidence to support their “Meghan is bossy control freak” narrative and they thought they finally had their “gotcha” moment. Ridiculous.

      The bigger story is why are we paying millions for the fit members of the RF to sit at home on their backsides? It would be great if we had videos or photos of the paid royals organising a photo shoot after spending the best part of a day with people. Kate and Charles are ill and we’re being told how hard William and Camilla are working to fill in the gaps. I know I may have missed something but, neither of them have done a full weeks work since the announcement(s). Both of them are getting away with a couple of hours here and there and are being lauded as hard working!

  5. seaflower says:

    Trying to make fetch happen when it obviously ain’t.

    Also, god it’s been blissful without the dirty little toad (aka DW)..

  6. Jais says:

    It put Dr. Sophie Chandauka in the absolute middle of the picture, which is where she should be as the chair of sentabale.

    • Jks says:

      Exactly 💯. It was to put her in the centre of the stage and also, it was women in the centre arrangement.

      Btw, love her dress too!

      • Nicky says:

        Yes! Can I just be shallow for a minute and love on the way these two women look side by side? I wonder if them both being in that cream color was coordinated or just coincidence. Either way, it makes me want a dress in that beautiful cream too, but it would look horrible on my pale Irish complexion.

    • Christine says:

      Can you imagine the outrage if Meghan was centered? These people are so beyond “pick a lane”, they were going to go into hysterics no matter how this played out.

    • Cessily says:

      They love to take a non issue and make it the end of the world.. these women know each other and this was a happy event. (FYI love the fact that all the women wore cream/white dresses I wonder if that was coordinated.) I wonder what Mr Wooton will be ranting about next from his YouTube basement.

    • Becks1 says:

      Exactly – when you see the full pic it makes total sense, its about centering her as the head of Sentebale in the photo.

      It was a brief 5 second interaction between Meghan and Dr. Chandauka and it seemed like a perfectly normal encounter. There was nothing about “another woman can’t stand next to Harry” or anything like that.

      But, I guess Dan wootton has to do his thing at all costs, even when there are receipts proving him wrong yet again.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      +1000 Meghan placed another woman in the center of a photo.

      They all look fabulous and happy for a great day out for a very good cause.

      4 Takes Catfish Dan tries to strike again.

  7. equality says:

    If she had gone to the other side of Harry, she and the other woman helping to hold the trophy would have been having to lean. It made more sense to have her next to the other lady.

    • jemmy says:

      If she had gone to the other side, she would have bee
      n stuck between Harry & another polo player which would have made the picture awkward. Meghan gestured to her to move to the other side for a better position but the rangers could see was Meghan trying to control the lady .They are so hateful.
      On twitter, some even went as far as saying that Prince Harry should have married someone as well educated as this lady t ( She is a lawyer, entrepreneur , works asa Risk Manger for Meta in addition to being the CEO for Senetable ) to which I responded that they would also project the same hatred oaths lady being that Meghan is just as well read as this lady .

      As someone said on this platform, they are low life bottom feeder ghouls who have self esteem issues

  8. Brassy Rebel says:

    The derangers need a hobby. Oh wait! I guess this is their hobby. They need a constructive hobby.

  9. Amy Bee says:

    These people are so accustomed to royals being passive participants in these kind of events that they think Meghan helping to arrange the photoshoot is being bossy rather than helpful and proactive. You can understand now why the Palace staff accused Meghan of bullying. It was because they were accustomed to being the ones coming up with the ideas and telling their principal what to do.

    • jemmy says:

      @Amy- “You can understand now why the Palace staff accused Meghan of bullying.” I disagree.

      The Palace staff knew fully well that there was no bullying. They are not that dumb not to know what does / does not constitute bullying.

      The story was made up the story perhaps with the tacit approval of their principal I order to smear Meghan.

    • rosa mwemaid says:

      I always thought it was made up, although at the time the Palace had been practicing racial discrimination in their employment policies for years and black people were only allowed to do menial jobs.

  10. Miranda says:

    I guess it would’ve been fine if Meghan had “coordinated” a photo with hacky photoshop or by calling in unconvincing lookalikes?

  11. SussexWatcher says:

    OMG who is the silver fox next to Nacho in the group shot?! Why are so many polo guys so frickin hot?! 🥵

    • Cessily says:

      My children played the every other sport besides polo.. I wish I had known then😉.. seeing the photos and video clips is getting me excited to see the Polo series, can’t wait for that to drop.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That’s what I want to know! Who’s that gorgeous guy next to Nacho!!!
      Also, gotta say, cracked up at the guy staring lovingly at his box of whisky.

    • Deering24 says:

      Polo players stay in excellent shape. All that exercise. And . . . riding ‘n stuff…😉😂😎

  12. Dee(2) says:

    It’s interesting to me how far they will go to manufacture conflict for them. They need to reassure the haters and themselves that they’re right in their hatred, Even though for some of the social media trolls it has gotten them fired from their jobs and ruined their lives to some extent. These royal reporters are being laid off left and right. I think the more hateful ones have tricked themselves into believing that they are fighting some righteous cause and must ” expose their BeHaVIor” to justify previous and current actions, while the more opportunistic ones are trying to figure out now how to reframe themselves so they can get invited into the American market more.

  13. C says:

    I don’t even look at these articles or try to fact check them anymore; the fact is, the happier and more fulfilled they look, the angrier these people get, so outside of actual threats, it doesn’t even matter, lol.

  14. ML says:

    The hate is frustrating, and from a creep like DW, it’s par for the course. I’m so glad that Dr Chandauka posed next to Harry without Meghan in the picture. Otherwise this story would get traction and now people like DW look justifiably stupid. This is like the whole Frankenphoto stuff where they tried to accuse the Sussexes of massively editing images and H&M published receipts.

    • jemmy says:

      @Just Jade – attacks are approved and signed off by the powers that be. Harry and Meghan are to be cast aside and negatively pulled down as much as possible given they are not within the confines of RF.

      The aim is for them not to outshine the monarch & its heir. This has been the Modus operands from time immemorial.

  15. Bookie says:

    I like how the women obviously coordinated their outfits ahead of time.

    • ML says:

      Yes, all of them look great in cream-colored dresses!
      I came back to say the Meghan has been extremely supportive of women (cough, Smart Works and Hubb, cough), as opposed to some other members of her husband’s family. Considering who is not in the news, it’s pathetic that DW and associated filth tried to attack Meghan for being rude towards Dr Chandauka.

  16. Nanea says:

    KuKluxDan Rotten doing what he does best:
    letting his misogynoir flag fly.

    This sad little man took up seamlessly again where he left off when his disgusting behaviour was made public, being Deranger-in-Chief.

  17. MsIam says:

    In addition to the insults to Meghan, the press also referred to Dr. Chandauka as a “royal fan”. This woman is the chairperson of Sentebale and they act like she’s some anonymous groupie. Those disgusting assholes can’t even do basic journalism. Blinded by the racism and misogyny I guess.

  18. Just Jade says:

    Something is seriously wrong with these people and I wish one the journalist would be brave enough to do a deep dive into who was responsible to coordinate the attacks. Sadly, even if they did an investigation the media would never report it.

  19. teehee says:

    It was coordinating— women in teh center, men on the outside, and it also was more symmetrical, and she was for a while in fornt of Harry / in front of the trophy and with her back turned so I mean, she needed a bit of help LOL Not bossing….
    Putting someone in teh center is also a sign of respect they wanted her in teh middle, they immediately made a gap for her in the center. THEY, not Meghan.

  20. Jas says:

    There’s so much racism in these criticisms. If she’s anything other than obsequious and silent she’s a bossy harridan. It’s horrible.
    I see a woman being thoughtful and helpful, making sure that everyone is in the best place for a good photo. It’s kind, not controlling.

  21. Any little thing they think they can pick apart and control is what the gutter press will do. The poor women could sneeze and the would rip her apart.

  22. Bettyrose says:

    Bossy is such a G-D dog whistle. But what the h*ll is that video meant to be evidence of? Meghan helping another woman feel less awkward in the universally awkward scenario of a group photo?

  23. Debbie says:

    So, Dan Wooten’s out there trying to pretend that he cares soooo much about women and Dr. Chandauka specifically, huh?

  24. Jay says:

    Dan, just spell it out: You don’t like Black women to speak, period.

  25. Mary Pester says:

    Oh Dan, YAWWWWWWN, don’t you know yet that you are so last year. The world is moving on from your dog whistle tactics. Don’t you fret your perverted little mind, Megan is thriving, happy and loved BY A FAITHFUL husband, so you see dear Dan, the only one you have dirt on is Billy. You can trip over your own venom as much as you want, BUT when it comes to Harry and meghan, I suggest you, STFD and STFU, or maybe we will see you in court, in fact maybe I would even fund the case, just to see you questioned, and to see just how many, many people are going to come forward to testify against the you.

  26. Chelsea says:

    Ugh i saw some people mentioning this on Twitter but didn’t realize that it started with Dan Wrotten. I’m glad to see the engagement on the tweet is onlu 1k comments and 3k likes(there were viral positive squad posts from this weekend with over 50k likes). Let’s please keep it that way and do not click on that tweet or respond to it.

  27. QuiteContrary says:

    You can literally see Harry tug Meghan to his side … and yes, Meghan was trying to center the head of Sentebale.

    Try — or cry — harder, sad little man.

  28. Myeh says:

    They all look great. Racist people need to make a woc bossy, threatening, intimidating, rude and having a bad personality because the default was that their racist narrative was believed by default. Now not so much. Stfu and pound sand racist dbags.

  29. Bad Janet says:

    This is such blatantly sexist AND racist bullshit***. We can’t have a black woman even LOOK like she is being mildly directive without being “bossy.” I’d love to see them make this argument about a man.

    I’m not at all shocked, given the source of the complaint, but Britain’s garbage press really needs to start looking at itself.

  30. Jeanette says:

    I took a screenshot in the comments of DailyMail… The poster said that their email account has notifications of multiple upvotes on a promeghan comment but only 2 shows up. Pretty much proof, that the mail is trying to control the public perception that M&H are hated and K&W are the best thing since sliced bread. It always bugs me to see all the upvotes on catty h&m posts..now I know why DailyMail controls it, the public does not. Sidenote, I can send the screenshot to admin of you are interested l.

    • Charter says:

      The fail have been manipulating comments for as long as they’ve been online.

      I remember in the early days of mail online (when I used to read it), this is way way before bot farms, they’d have comments that were almost identical in tone /language by the dozen. They were obviously planted by them because literally dozens using similar /same words and when the words were unusual it was even more noticeable. I’d try to tell people but they didn’t believe me. Lol

  31. alisays says:

    Organizing a photo for better optics and a cool image over doctoring a Proof of Life family photo called out by 5 international agencies to kill – Yes !!
    We see what’s happening here .

    Haters are hating , again 🤩

  32. VilleRose says:

    Dr. Sophie Chandauka was not only standing at an awkward angle but she was also holding the trophy from an awkward angle. Her arms were covering Harry and Meghan and it made for bad pictures. It made sense for her to be in the middle as the Chair of Sentebale. Maybe she really wanted to be next to Harry as it his foundation but he had one arm around Meghan and one arm on the trophy. The derangers will hate her no matter what and are always shifting the goal posts.

  33. Sona says:

    Not Meghan trying to give this lady a centered position and the press making it into a mean thing!!

  34. LynZey says:

    This is absurd. If you watched the video the woman was moved to the center because of her status with the organization so she would be the center of attention. Also Meghan didn’t move her the photographer requested she be center as she should be. This is so much BS and shouldn’t even be given air.
