The Duchess of Sussex found herself hiding behind a candle yesterday and one of the tallest members of the royal family.
It meant that viewers struggled to see it because it was often hidden from view.
The Duchess, 41, and her husband Prince Harry were seated behind Tim Laurence, Princess Anne’s husband, who towers over his wife.
A large church candle also stood between her and the television cameras, while her wide-brimmed hat made it even more difficult for fans to see her.
Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, were sitting in the second row of Westminster Abbey next to Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Although she was excluded from the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011 and did not attend Prince Philip’s funeral last year, she continued to enjoy a warm relationship with the queen. Last week she said of the late queen: “To me, she was the most amazing mother-in-law and friend of hers.” I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me by staying close to me, even after my divorce.
