The netizens speculated that Middleton was aware of the snubbing and opted to just turn her head forward without a smile. However, it also didn't take long for Hanna to turn her face back to look at the duchess.

Hanna, a member of parliament and former Miss World, received intense backlash online due to the 5-second clip. Several called her rude, saying it wasn't the right attitude to welcome guests.

"There is no excuse for bad manners. Why did the Jamaican woman attend if she was intending to be rude? She wanted to be pictured with royalty and then decided to behave badly," one commented.
