Meghan Markle was caught in an awkward moment when she joined husband Prince Harry on-stage after a polo match.

The 40-year-old former actress and Duchess of Sussex dolled up in a black polka dot blouse and white shorts for the charity event as she watched Harry and his Los Padres teammates competed for the Lisle Nixon Memorial Cup at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in California.

When Meghan got up the stage to present the trophy to her husband and his winning team, she was somehow squashed in the middle while the polo players tried to take a picture holding the cup.

In the video shared on social media, the Duchess puts on an awkward smile as she takes a step back and claps to congratulate Harry on the win.

The players lift the heavy cup above her head and she holds onto her sun hat and steps back to the centre of the stage for a photo-op.

One viewer shared on TikTok: "Meghan forces her way into polo team to accept trophy."

Another said the players "didn't know where to put her" and then ended up "blocking her with the trophy".

Meghan was also seen giving a kiss to Harry at the match as a royal expert called the affection a potential "made for TV" moment.

The commentator Daniela Elser wrote: "Did Meghan simply wake up and decide that some old school Hollywood glamour was the order of the day given she was going to present the winners’ trophies?

"Or was she, Cecil B. DeMille-style, simply getting ready for her close-up?"

Meghan and Harry have confirmed that they will return to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee along with their children Archie and Lilibet.

However they will not be joining other working members of the Royal Family to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony during Trooping the Colour celebration.
