Meghan Markle’s aide tried blagging restaurant spot by name-dropping Harry

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle had to wait for a table at a supremely posh restaurant, despite on of her aides demanding that she be seated because her then-boyfriend was Prince Harry.

The strange new claim – which really is the epitome of a first world problem – comes from world-leading New York front of house man Michael Cecchi-Azzolina.

He recalled the story to the New York Post while plugging his new memoir Your Table Is Ready: Tales of a New York City Maître D.

Although he didn't name the restaurant, he recalled how the bolshey aide of Meghan, who was just an actress in hit TV show Suits at the time, failed miserably to get her a table after arriving 20 minutes early for dinner with her boyfriend and future husband the Duke of Sussex.

He claimed that the aide told him that the table was “for someone who is dating a prince”.

“The aide told me 'Are you aware my guest is dating Prince Harry and about to be a duchess? Don't you have a private area for us to wait?'

Checchi-Azzolina said that his “first impulse was to laugh”, and that he replied with: “I couldn't give two s**ts about Prince Harry's date, and by the attention the escort was drawing from the crowd at the bar, nor did anyone else.

“We get the most powerful people in the world that come here — no one really cares about you.”

The Daily Star has reached out to Meghan and Harry's team for a comment on the claim, which comes just days after the Duchess of Sussex revealed she felt "objectified" and "not smart" after appearing as a briefcase girl on the NBC show Deal or No Deal from 2006 to 2007.

Meghan seemed to blast Deal or No Deal in the latest episode of her Archetypes podcast on Spotify with Paris Hilton – as well as claiming there was a specific area for bra padding.

She said: "Before the tapings of the show, all the girls, we would line up and there were different stations for having your lashes put on, or your extensions put in, or the padding in your bra.

"It was solely about beauty and not necessarily about brains."
