Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's recent showing of affection has been labelled a potential "made-for-TV" moment by a royal expert.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club on Sunday, where the pair shared an intimate moment that was allegedly played up for the cameras.
With Harry and Meghan attending the charity polo match, all eyes are on the royal couple amid their upcoming Netflix documentary series, which has so far followed the pair to the Invictus Games.
But a royal expert has criticised a tender moment the couple shared in an article that moans of a "scene-stealing" hat and the chastising of Meghan's "old school Hollywood glamour" attitude.
Royal expert Daniela Elser was critical not just of Markle's outfit but of the kiss she shared with husband Prince Harry, which the expert claimed was Meghan "getting ready for her close-up."
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?
Criticism of Markle's dress and kissing of the Duke of Sussex continued, with Elser adding: "So, was Meghan's uber glam show on the weekend just that? A made-for-TV moment?"

Elser, whose opinion piece was published in news.com.au, also alleged that this was a first for the royal couple, and that audiences had never seen them appear like this.
The expert was critical of the Sussexes' attire, writing: "Despite having been photographed at polo matches for years, we have never seen a look like this before.
"Polo has long been a part of the Sussexes’ lives. In 2017 when Meghan, then a royal girlfriend, first attended a few chukkas with her boyfriend she wore chic tailored black dress and wedges.
"On each of these occasions, she looked, quite simply, fabulous. And on each of these occasions, she looked nowhere near as styled-to-within-an-inch-of-her-life as this week’s outing."
