A snub?

I was watching the American television coverage of the women's final of the US Open tennis tournament. The Duchess of Sussex and was cheering for Serena Williams, which is fine as they are friends.
Maybe our tv didn't show it, but shouldn't she have congratulated the winner as she is Canadian, a Commonwealth country.

That's a very good point.

She was there as a private citizen attending tennis in the stands. She was not there in any official capacity representing the queen and commonwealth.

I am sure if she actually had a chance to meet the winner, she would have congratulated her on the win.
