Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Reporter Sounds Off On Meghan Markle's 'Diva-ish Demands For Privacy'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Meghan Markle stepped out alongside two of her friends to watch pal Serena Williams play at the Wimbledon tennis tournament last week ― an outing that caused a bit of bad publicity for the royal.

During the match, the security detail for the Duchess of Sussex caused a tiff by asking other spectators not to take photos of her, or even photos in her direction. 

Sally Jones, a former BBC reporter who was at the match, was among those approached with the request. In an article Jones wrote for The Telegraph, she said a member of Markle’s security team tapped her on the shoulder and said, “Would you not take photographs of the duchess? She’s here in a private capacity.”

Jones was especially upset because, she said, she was actually snapping a photo of Williams ― not the duchess. The incident caused Jones to criticize both Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry.

“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,” Jones wrote, referring to the couple’s new home.
