Here’s what a royal expert claims happened just before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s controversial exit from Charles’ 70th Birthday Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

Three days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot, the pair attended their first event as a married couple, and what went on that day has been discussed at length by royal watchers and decoded by lip readers.

On May 22, 2018, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the 70th Birthday Garden Party at Buckingham Palace for then-Prince Charles. Harry paid tribute to his father during the celebration honoring Charles’ work with his charities and patronages.

A royal author has claimed that there was some “tension” though with Meghan that day and has shared how Harry reacted at the party when she told him she wanted to leave because she was “bored.”

Harry and Meghan postponed their honeymoon to attend the affair which saw the duchess don a blush “Flavia” pencil dress featuring a tailored bodice with a silk-chiffon yoke and sleeves. She added a custom Philip Treacy hat, nude tights, and matching pumps. The former Suits star and her husband interacted with several people before they exited the party. But hether they were asked to leave or did so on their own has been debated for years.

Express noted that royal commentator Lady Colin Campbell, who penned Meghan and Harry: The Real Story, said there was tension in the air during the celebration because Meghan was “bored” and didn’t want to be there for too long.

According to Campbell’s book, “Fifteen minutes into the event, she turned to Harry and said, ‘Harry, this is really boring. Let’s leave.’”

The author added that the duke stood his ground and replied that they were going to stay, writing: “To his credit, he informed her that they would have to stay. ‘But Harry,’ she said, ‘This is so boring. We’ve done our bit. Everyone knows we’ve been here. Let’s go.’ Harry asserted that they had to stay, and they moved on.”

What a lip reader observed Charles telling Prince Harry

While the Sussexes continued to speak with several guests, a royal staff member approached the prince to tell him his father wanted a quick word with him. Soon after Harry and Meghan were seen exiting the party, which led to speculation that they were asked to leave.

But a professional lip reader explained that was not the case and shared that now-King Charles let Harry know they were about to depart.

The Daily Mail‘s lip-reading expert shared that Charles said to Harry: “We are going now. We have to leave,” to which Harry replied: “You go ahead.”

The king then told his son: “We will go now, see you later,” and Harry replied: “Yes, catch up after.”

Footage shows Harry patting Charles on the back before Queen Camilla (formerly known as Camilla Parker Bowles) walks over and kisses both the duke and duchess goodbye.
