New Meghan, Harry photo is a f–k you to the royal family: expert

The latest portraits of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have some royal watchers seeing red.

The Duchess of Sussex, who returned home to California with her husband following Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on September 19, sports a red tie-neck blouse in two new photos that were released Monday by photographer Misan Harriman — and her look is drawing comparisons to Wallis Simpson, the American divorcée who caused King Edward VIII to abdicate the throne in 1936.

Wearing the “Bow Blouse” from Another Tomorrow ($540) along with the brand’s red trousers ($590), Markle, 41, stares straight on at the camera in one photo, bearing a striking resemblance to a 1971 photo of Simpson.

The royal wife — who became the Duchess of Windsor following her marriage to Queen Elizabeth’s uncle King Edward VIII, later known as the Duke of Windsor — wore a long-sleeved red ensemble in the vintage photo, with the attached scarf tie of her dress tossed over the same shoulder as Markle’s.

Fans have pointed out that the present-day duchess is wearing similar gold hoop earrings as the ones Simpson sported in the 1970s snapshot and sporting a middle part with her hair pulled back, along with making a similar facial expression.

In another photo — snapped in black-and-white by Harriman, who is a friend of the Sussexes — the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are shown in profile, staring off into the distance along the lines of a portrait released of the Windsors years ago.

Royal fans on Twitter were quick to point out the similarities between the red outfits, and unsurprisingly, the comments weren’t positive. “JEEZ it’s creepy” one user wrote, sharing a collage of four of Meghan’s outfits compared to ones as worn by Simpson, who was said to be a Nazi sympathizer.

“Here we go again,” another account wrote. “Note the earrings too? Anyone would think MM savours the role of pantomime villain.”

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor were married in June 1937, after he gave up the throne to marry the divorced American.
