Twitter users claim to have an eagle eye Kate Middleton was “angered” by Jamaican beauty queen and politician Lisa Hannah, with a video showing an awkward moment between the couple.
Prince William and Kate arrived in Jamaica on Tuesday (March 22) as they continue their royal tour of the Caribbean, which has so far received mixed reviews.
The trip was seen as the latest attempt to dissuade the Caribbean countries from removing the queen from the presidency, as happened in Barbados last November.
When Wills and Kate met with officials, protesters gathered near the British High Commission in Kingston, demanding that the monarchy pay reparations for slavery.
Despite some controversy surrounding the trip, the footage shows the Duchess of Cambridge warmly welcomed by a Jamaican MP and former Miss World champion Lisa shortly after landing.
But commentators on Twitter were excited when another clip was posted in which Lisa abruptly turns her head away from laughing Kate, who then looks solemn and turns herself away.
While this is probably a simple misunderstanding, some viewers believe that Lisa framed Kate’s “cold shoulder”.
One person tweeted: “Lisa Hannah is throwing Kate Middleton in protest of reparations.
“I’m sorry, Kate, but if you, William, Charlie and Lizzie can’t forgive or talk about the money you owe, don’t talk to me.”
The second commented, “My heart is probably weak because the embarrassment of the used hands just broke me.”
Someone else chuckled, “I know you support removal The Royal Family but this is not a way to entertain guests.
“How would you feel if someone invited you? [SIC] and someone gave you a cold shoulder, you wouldn’t want that? There is no excuse for bad manners! ”
Lisa, who is an MP from Saint Ann South East, herself posted images from the event in which she smiles, and described her time with Kate as “enjoyable”.
She tweeted: “We had a very interactive and enjoyable conversation throughout the review when we talked about family, our culture and our people.”
