MEGHAN Markle is often the picture of elegance, but had a rather toe-curling moment at the polo with Prince Harry.
Royal fans were quick to spot the awkward encounter, which took place as Prince Harry raised a trophy with his teammates at the Californian event.
First, Meghan, 40, appears to try to take a small trophy off one of 37-year-old Harry’s fellow polo players, but he doesn’t let go.
And then Meghan is obscured as he and a teammate lift a larger trophy over her head while she applauds and clutches her hat.
The Duchess of Sussex can be seen trying to edge into shot, and eventually ducks underneath the award to be visible.
One TikTok user shared a clip of the moment, with the caption: “Meghan forces her way into polo team to accept trophy.”

It wasn’t the only cringey moment that took place at the event.
Meghan was also seen rubbing bright red lipstick off Prince Harry after giving him a kiss.
The clip shows the duchess, who is wearing an enormous black sunhat, congratulating her husband's team.
She offers each player a continental-style kiss on each cheek before planting a smooch on Harry's lips as the prince leans in.

After the kiss, Meghan pulls down the brim of her hat and moves to Harry's left as the price turns away.
She then lingers and touches his arm in a bid to get his attention before reaching up to his face.
As he turns, she uses her thumb to wipe a lipstick mark off his mouth.
Harry briefly appears to jolt his head back before raising an eyebrow.
He can then be seen putting his arm around his wife and courteously moving her to the middle of the group for a photo.
Social media users questioned why none of the other polo Wags had been invited onto the podium.

Harry has joined the Los Padres polo team for the season.
He and Meghan were filmed sharing a kiss at a charity match in support of several good causes, including Heal the Ocean and CALM4Kids.
Meghan wore white summer shorts, a polka dot blouse and a belt as she went to the ground to support her husband.
She matched Harry, who was also wearing traditional white shorts for the game.
The couple's two children Archie and Lillibet remained at home – likely because the scorching late-spring sunshine would have been too much for them.
It's possible Harry was ready to burn off some steam with a game after a slew of reports about his much-anticipated memoir.
The bombshell book still has no publishing date – sparking “uncertainty” over whether it'll be released this year.
