Prince Harry and Meghan's touching gesture to staff as they are caught on NBA kisscam

NewsPrince Harry and Meghan's touching gesture to staff as they are caught on NBA kisscam

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appeared to enjoy a cozy and fun date night as they were caught on the NBA kisscam at a basketball game earlier this week in California.

After being picked up by cameras in the audience of the LA Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies NBA match on Monday night, the crowd cheered and Harry appeared to lean in for a kiss, before Meghan gently touched his arm and laughed the moment off.

But it seems the couple weren’t alone, and were joined by an entourage of staff when they made the surprise outing to the game.

The decision to invite their staffers has been described as a touching gesture to their team, the Mirror reports.

It seems those joining them at the game were staff who work for the couple’s charitable foundation, Archwell, as well as those working on other projects for the pair, meaning they could have been treating their team to a fun night out.

Among those joining them was Rick Genow, a top Hollywood attorney, who was seen sitting in the seat next to Meghan in the Crypto.com arena.

Rick Genow handled Meghan’s legal affairs for several years, and he works for the powerhouse firm Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher.

Also joining the couple was Andrew Meyer, Meghan’s business manager, who has worked for the Duchess of Sussex for many years – even before she married Harry.

Others in the group included Maren Thomas, who works in Archewell’s communications department, and Miranda Barbot, who also works in communications for the couple and previously helped to re-elect Barack Obama.

The outing was the first time Harry and Meghan have been seen in public together since announcing their Coronation plans.

It was announced that Harry would be attending the Coronation of his father King Charles III on May 6, but Meghan will be staying behind in California with Prince Archie, three, and Princess Lilibet, one.

Prince Archie’s fourth birthday falls on the same day as the historic Coronation ceremony, leading some royal commentators to believe the celebrations gave Meghan a “reasonable excuse” not to return to the UK alongside her husband.

Meanwhile, Meghan broke cover and was seen for the first time on Monday since it emerged she would be skipping the Coronation next month.

The Duchess was seem beaming in a surprise public appearance as she introduced her long-time friend and photographer, Misan Harriman, via video link onstage at a Ted Talk.

Photographer Misan Harriman has snapped many photos of Harry, Meghan and their family over the years, and the Duchess beamed with pride as she introduced her long-time friend.

It was also Meghan’s first appearance since reports surfaced over the weekend that she wrote a personal letter to the King over her concerns of racism within the Royal Family.

The Duchess is understood to have sent the correspondence in the wake of the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, where she alleged comments were made about the colour of their unborn son Archie’s skin.

Her appearance before the Ted Talk emerged after Misan posted a photo on Instagram showing Meghan on the big screen, smiling as she spoke.

He captioned the image: “The Duchess of Sussex was kind enough to introduce me unto the stage for my @ted. Thank you for the support Meg.”
