Lewis Hamilton, a renowned Formula 1 legend, recently had an unexpected turn of events at the US Grand Prix, which left fans questioning the presence of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. The “Markling” phenomenon seemed to strike again, casting a shadow of misfortune over Hamilton’s performance.
Prince Harry’s surprise appearance at the Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, without his wife, Meghan Markle, raised eyebrows among Royal fans. The 39-year-old Duke attended the event as a guest of both the Mercedes and Red Bull teams, adding an element of intrigue to the race day.
The real twist in the story came just hours after Harry’s arrival, as Lewis Hamilton faced disqualification from the US Grand Prix. His car failed a post-race inspection, stripping the seven-time world champion of his second-place finish. The controversial decision came shortly after Hamilton narrowly lost to Max Verstappen by a mere two seconds in the intense competition in Austin.
With Hamilton’s disqualification, McLaren’s Lando Norris was promoted to second place, and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz secured the third spot on the podium. Prince Harry, among the spectators, was seen sharing animated conversations with Red Bull Racing Team principal Christian Horner while enjoying the race.
Many fans couldn’t help but wonder if Harry’s presence had brought some bad luck to Lewis Hamilton, much like Meghan Markle’s appearance at Serena Williams’ matches, where the tennis superstar experienced a series of losses. Superstition is prevalent in the entertainment industry, and some believe that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be carrying an unfortunate charm with them.
The incident at the US Grand Prix is just another example of the “Markling” phenomenon, where anything connected to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry seems to face unexpected setbacks. From Spotify to Gabor Mate, Oprah, WME, and now Lewis Hamilton, it appears that a touch of “Markle magic” can disrupt even the most successful endeavors.
On Twitter, Lewis Hamilton’s staunch supporters expressed their frustration, with some labeling the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as “bad omens.” The belief in paranormal and spiritual forces influencing events is not uncommon, and many fans voiced their concerns over the unfortunate turn of events for Hamilton.
Mercedes has been struggling throughout the season, and the US Grand Prix was no exception. Despite Hamilton’s impressive performance, the “Markling” curse seemed to overshadow his achievements, leaving fans and experts baffled.
In addition to the race day drama, a royal expert suggested that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have adopted a “low blow” strategy against King Charles and the royal family. Dr. Ed Owens, the author of “After Elizabeth: Can the Monarchy Save Itself,” pointed out that Prince Harry’s actions, especially the Oprah interview, have done more damage to the monarchy’s image than anything else.
As the “Markling” phenomenon continues to raise questions and superstitions in the world of sports and entertainment, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s actions remain under scrutiny. The Duke’s presence at the US Grand Prix, coinciding with Lewis Hamilton’s disqualification, has only added fuel to the mystique surrounding this intriguing phenomenon.
