Meghan Markle was dragged for acting in an Instagram advertisement for coffee company Clevr Blends.

The “Suits” star portrayed the role of a hard-working intern in each scene of Tuesday’s video as the beverage brand’s CEO Hannah Mendoza, gave a tour of their headquarters to the viewers.

The CEO began with saying, “I want to give a huge shoutout to our amazing Clevr team here at HQ. Without them, we are nothing.”

She walked past Meghan, who can be seen packing lattes. In the next frame, the Duchess of Sussex can be seen working on her desk on a computer in the background, as Hannah introduces her “very smart, only slightly nerdy digital team.”

In another frame, which was set in the backyard, Hannah talks about “the glue” that held the team together.

A very busy looking Meghan strolled by and attempted to fist-bump an co-worker while clutching a folder and holding a phone to her hand.

The netizens were quick to react as one of them wrote, “Haha the Duchass [sic] of Instagram, what a fall from grace.”

Another wrote, “Imagine leaving the most famous family in the world, only to end up as an extra in a coffee ad.”
