Replies to the photos were a mixed bag. Many took took the opportunity to put down Markle, who is seen by some as improper and not fit for royal titles due to her desire to shake up royal tradition.
However, some chose not to tear down the former Suits actress, who is married to Prince Harry, and decided to compliment her and Middleton, who is married to Prince William.
Love the color on Kate but am totally in love with Meghan's skirt. They look like they had fun despite Meghan's friend losing the match.— Jennifer Watts (@JenniferEWatts) July 13, 2019
