Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Attended The Biopic's Premiere

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are trending on social media again, and this time, it's because of their attendance at the premiere of the "Bob Marley: One Love" biopic.

A clip showing the couple talking being shown to their seats recently went viral online due to the Duke and Duchess' reactions.

In the clip, Harry seemed hesitant to go to the seats positioned in the middle row, while Meghan maintained a smile as she held her gown up to get down the aisles. Before their exit from the royal family, the couple would ordinarily have sat in the front or second row.

For the film premiere, Harry wore a simple two-piece navy suit and white shirt, while his wife was more dressed up. Meghan wore a large black gown featuring a sleeveless strappy black top and a taffeta Carolina Herrera maxi skirt. She had on simple makeup and her hair done into a classic bun.

Harry & Meghan Posed With Prime Minister Andrew Holness

Harry and Meghan's attendance at the film premiere was controversial because of their close conversation with Prime Minister Holness and the photos they happily posed for. Holness has openly declared that Jamaica is "moving on" from being under the British monarchy, which Harry's father, King Charles, heads.

Jamaica has actually started the process of severing ties with the monarchy, something Harry might be familiar with. In early 2020, he and Meghan resigned as senior royals and moved to North America with their two kids, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. It was a move that shocked the world and permanently changed their relationship with the royal family.

After their move to America, Harry and Meghan settled with their kids in Montecito, California. In the years since, the couple have made very few trips back to the UK, mostly for public purposes for Harry, such as visits to his family and a court trial.

Harry And Meghan's Trip To Jamaica Comes Amid A Health Crisis In The Royal Family

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Were Reportedly DENIED A Ride On Air Force One After The Queen's Funeral

Harry and Meghan attended the biopic premiere amid a slew of frightening health-related news from the Royal Family. Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, recently announced that she's recovering from abdominal surgery in the hospital.

Kate is reportedly "doing well" as she recovers from a major abdominal operation at the London Clinic. She's scheduled to remain in the hospital for the next 14 days and likely won't resume official duties until after Easter and all its celebrations.

The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, has also announced that she was diagnosed with malignant melanoma, which is an aggressive form of skin cancer. The diagnosis came after she removed and tested multiple moles after her mastectomy in June.

There's also King Charles himself, who's canceled multiple appointments and announced that he's having surgery for an enlarged prostate. A statement by Buckingham Palace read, "The King was this morning admitted to a London hospital for scheduled treatment. His Majesty would like to thank all those who have sent their good wishes over the past week."
