PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have been spotted giggling and pulling faces on the big screen at a basketball game after their coronation snub.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were filmed waving and smiling as they watched the LA Lakers’ in action last night in Meghan’s home town of Los Angeles, California.
They appeared on the big screen above the court and seemed to tease that it was a ‘kiss cam’ before laughing it off.
In the clip, posted on Twitter, the couple can be seen laughing and chatting to other spectators, before they seem to share a joke and the Prince pulls an awkward-looking face as his wife laughs.
The Duke shares a chat with a fellow fan, before giving a thumbs up, while Meghan smiles cheerily.
They then begin to chat and laugh as they cosy up together, before Harry makes a slightly embarrassed face.
Meghan wore a pink jacket and skirt, twinned with light heels and a while top.
Harry was in dark jeans and a white T-shirt under a black jacket.
He also had a Lakers jersey draped across his knee.
The Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 117-111.
It comes just days after they made the stunning announcement that Harry would attend the King’s coronation without Meghan.
He will jet to London for the May 6 event, while she will remain at their £12 million mansion in Montecito, California, to celebrate their son Archie’s fourth birthday, which falls on the same date.
The announcement sparked a row after reports that the Duchess’ decision was influenced by a split with the Royal Family over allegations of “unconscious bias”.
The former actress previously raised racism concerns in a letter to the then-Prince of Wales following her interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, according to The Telegraph.
During the tell-all chat, Meghan claimed a senior member of the Royal Family had speculated about how dark their future son’s skin might be.
Charles is said to have written to his daughter-in-law, expressing his sadness over the split within the Firm.
A source said the duchess felt his response was unsatisfactory, which influenced her to skip the coronation.
But the Sussexes described the alleged reasoning as “ridiculous and false”.
In a statement shared through royal commentator Omid Scobie on Twitter, the couple said: “The Duchess of Sussex is going about her life in the present, not thinking about correspondence from two years ago related to conversations from four years ago.
“Any suggestion otherwise is false and frankly ridiculous.
“We encourage tabloid media and various royal correspondents to stop the exhausting circus that they alone are creating.”
Meghan appeared publicly for the first time shortly after the issue blew up, as she introduced a friend’s TED talk via video.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey to see his father crowned king.
However, he will reportedly return to his family in the USA just hours later, missing a major event in the coronation celebrations.
The decision to attend was announced after reports that homesick Harry was “desperate” to make the trip for the event.
A source told The Sun: “Harry was desperate to come back for the Coronation and spend quality time with his family.”
Despite this, the Duke appears to be settling into life in the US after the Megxit saga that saw him and his wife quit the UK.
The pair are rarely seen in public outside of scheduled appearances but have been spotted a couple of times.
In February last year, Harry was seen at the Super Bowl alongside his cousin Princess Eugenie.
He and Meghan were also filmed dancing at a concert later that year, as they shared a drink and a hug.
Their basketball appearance comes after the Prince and Princess of Wales were snapped courtside at a Celtics game during their trip to Boston in December last year.
