Meghan Markle has broken many traditions when it comes to the royal family, and once again she has proved just how down-to-earth she is when she waited for her friend Markus Anderson when he got pushed aside by her security team.

It all happened as Markle arrived at the Polo Bar to continue her NYC visit with her closest friends Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney, Abigail Spencer, and Markus Anderson after arriving in town for a lavish baby shower at The Mark hotel.

Meghan Markle Radiates on Her Way to NYC Baby Shower

Meghan and her security team arrived at the Polo Bar when her friend Markus Anderson got out of the SUV and walked around to join the Duchess of Sussex, but as soon as her security team saw him next to her car, they began to shove him out of the way and toward the back of the car.

Initially, Anderson tried to explain to security was with Meghan, but when that failed, he patiently waited for Meghan to realize he was missing and call him over.

NOT WITHOUT MY FRIEND! At first, Meghan did not realize what had happened but as soon as she sensed Markus wasn’t next to her, she glanced back to see where he was and immediately ordered her security to let him through.

Once the security team realized their mistake, they let Markus join Meghan, and the two friends laughed about the absurdity of the situation.

The two have been friends for years, with Anderson even helping with Meghan’s lavish NYC baby shower.

The longtime friends laughed as they went inside the Polo Bar ready to join their famous friends that were already inside.

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex and friend Markus were joined by Serena WilliamsJessica Mulroney, and Abigail Spencer at the Polo Bar where they shared an intimate dinner.

Markle is in NYC for her U.S. baby shower and is squeezing in as much friend-time as possible.

It all makes sense since, now that she’s a duchess her royal duties keep her pretty busy these days.
