Meghan Markle appeared lightly put out after Prince Harry insited he was becoming “too old” for some types of conversations as they appeared on a video chat with members of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were born three years apart, with Meghan earlier this month turning 39 and Harry on the verge of celebrating his 36th birthday. Royally Obsessed hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie noted the Duke appeared to have hit a “clearly sensitive spot” with his talks of aging considering Meghan’s reaction.

Ms Bowie said: “Harry keeps talking about how old he is and Meghan is like ‘WTF, I’m four years older than you, stop saying that.’

“It’s clearly a sensitive spot.”

Ms Fiorito pointed out Harry had made remarks about his age on several occasions as he replayed clips to share the Duchess’s response with her audience.

She said: “Those are clips from two back-to-back talks with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust both from the summer.

“Harry, come on! And also, your wife is older than you, stop saying that.”

The podcast hosts suggested the Duke of Sussex had been inspired to make the remarks by the approach of his birthday in September as well as by his role as father to a young child.

During the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust talk, Prince Harry could be heard saying: “I really feel as if I’m way too old for this conversation.”

To which Meghan laughingly reacted saying: “Stop, we’re not old. You’re not aging.”

The Duchess of Sussex said: “But it’s true. I’m aging, I’m 35 already. I am, compared to these guys.”

The royal couple appeared incredibly at ease with each other as they sat close to each other while talking to young activists from across the Commonwealth about their work.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have continued to serve as President and vice-President of the trust despite announcing they would take a step back from their royal careers.

The Duke and Duchess have been spotted on several occasions helping the local community in Los Angeles through the coronavirus crisis.

And earlier this week the Duchess of Sussex joined renown US feminist Gloria Steinem to discuss the importance of voting ahead of the November presidential elections as well as feminismsm.

Meghan has been speaking about one’s duty to exercising their rights to vote while discussing the nomination of Senator Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate.

She said: “I’m so excited to see that kind of representation.

You know, for me, being biracial, growing up, whether it was a doll or a person in office, you need to see someone who looks like you in some capacity.

“As many of us believe, you can only be what you can see.

“And in the absence of that, how can you aspire to something greater than what you see in your own world? I think maybe now we’re starting to break-through in a different way.”
