The 'Suits' alum is accused of trying to upstage the Princess of Wales when two new products from her upcoming lifestyle brand American Riviera Orchard were teased.

AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle isn't trying to sabotage her sister-in-law Kate Middleton as she returned to the spotlight on Saturday, June 15. Despite the previous report, a new one insisted that everything was merely an "astonishing coincidence."

Meghan was accused of trying to upstage the Princess of Wales when two new products from her upcoming lifestyle brand American Riviera Orchard were teased over the weekend, around the same time when Kate made an appearance at the Trooping the Colour celebration. The Daily Beast, however, stressed that the bad timing was entirely unplanned.

"Meghan's team reportedly didn't set out to sabotage Kate," the outlet claimed of the mom of two. It added that the criticism against the Duchess of Sussex "is not justified, Meghan's camp believe."

It also pointed out that the "Harry & Meghan" star "did not order up the post from Figueras, and in fact had no input over when or if he would post," referring to Harry's polo friend Nacho Figueras' Instagram Story post.

Backing up the claims, a marketing expert told the news outlet, “While I am sure the gift packages came with notes requesting social media coverage, you can't tell Nacho Figueras what to do, so I think it's certain the timing of his post was his own idea."

"The larger point here is that the American Riviera Orchard campaign has been phenomenally successful and cost Meghan nothing," the source added. "It is a text book social media campaign. The only problem is that there still seems to be nothing actually for sale, so what is it all for? I guess we will find out."

The new report came after royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti told TMZ that the post about Meghan's new jam appeared to be the former actress and her husband Prince Harry's attempt "to steal the thunder of the royal family." He added, "Who knows, if it was, it's quite pathetic."
