Who is Amelka Zak? Teen who hugged Meghan Markle

The ‘Fab Four’ reuniting to greet mourners outside Windsor Castle astonished and cheered royalists and non-royalists alike, but one endearing interaction between Meghan Markle and a teenage girl has everyone talking.

Amelka Zak was one of the many sympathizers who lined the streets of Windsor with bouquets and condolences, but nothing could compare to the impact of her deed.

The Duchess of Sussex, who was seen holding the 14-year-old girl, leaned into her warm embrace as if nothing were standing between them.

“We were just waiting for her to come and she came near me and asked my name and how my day was, how long I was waiting. And I asked her if I could have a hug, and she hugged me back. It was quite an amazing moment. I’m still shaking now,” Zak told CNN.

Zak told she wanted to embrace Meghan, 41, after “everything that’s happened” – the Duchess of Sussex and her husband, Prince Harry, 37, notably resigned as senior working royals in 2020, and moved from the United Kingdom to the United States.

Since the couple moved to Montecito, California, Harry has visited the UK four times: once by himself in April 2021 for Prince Philip’s funeral, once more by himself in July 2021 for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace, and once with Meghan earlier this year to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.

By happenstance, the Su ssexes were in the UK when the Queen passed away after arriving a few days earlier for a series of charitable events and engagements.

Harry traveled to the Queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland alone, missing a final embrace with his grandmother by just 90 minutes, even though the couple was rumored to be staying at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor at the time, which is close to Windsor Castle and the Prince and Princess of Wales’ Adelaide Cottage.

Meghan is currently in the country for the second time since they left, and although attending certain Platinum Jubilee celebration events in June, neither she nor Harry were ever pictured with Prince William or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Princes William and Harry were pictured together at the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue in July of last year, and they did appear in the same photo a few times at Philip’s funeral, but they were noticeably separated by a cousin as they followed Philip’s hearse, even though Kate did play “peacemaker” and arrange time for them to be together at one point. However, the Windsor walkabout was the first time the “Fab Four” had been seen together in public since that time.

On Monday, September 19, the Sussexes are anticipated to attend the burial of Queen Elizabeth II, although it is unknown what other royal commitments they may take on during the period of grief.
