Kate Middleton suffers same fate as Meghan Markle after table ‘blocking’ blunder

An awkward moment faced by Kate Middleton has been likened to a similar incident experienced by Meghan Markle.

The Royal Family were hosting a state banquet for the President of South Korea at Buckingham Palace, and the dining table's seating plan had the Princess of Wales obscured by a large candelabra. The towering ornament blocking her face was one of several items of regal paraphernalia displayed on the table, including silver and gold service sets.

Coverage of the dinner showed the future Queen of England, who was dressed in formal attire, had been mostly concealed by the ginormous, two-tiered baroque decorative object. This blunder came despite Kate getting a top spot beside President Yoon Suk Yeol, in a position that mirrored the South Korean First Lady's position, next to Queen Camilla.

Although additional coverage reveals the obfuscating arrangement was probably more to do with the cameraman's angle than anything else, the moment has been compared to a similarly awkward moment faced by Meghan Markle.

Royal fans on social media have likened the moment to the time when the Duchess of Sussex was obscured from view by a large candle at the sate funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Abbey.

One X user commented: "They were laughing so hard when Meghan was blocked by a candelabra. Karma indeed for Kate", while a second person wrote: "Well the candle shades matches her dress and all in all #Kate seems to be wearing the candle holder very well. Meghan's senario at HMTQ funeral was just the angle the photo was taken."

A third user noted: "Where would Meg be seated? Behind candles looking like a complete reject like Kate looks here?"

Some X users questioned whether the placement was an accident or deliberate. One user said: "Every single detail to the smallest cutlery position is carefully choreographed at these events. It was deliberate."

While another said: "I'm not a Kate fan but I don't feel like it was done with malice, mainly because they are depending on her to 'deliver'."
