Meghan Markle has no need for a plus-one.
The Duchess of Sussex has been leaving Prince Harry “at home” in Montecito, Calif., to party without him, a British journalist claimed.
“Friends of mine who live near Harry and Meghan are always bumping into Meghan at parties these days,” Petronella Wyatt tweeted in May.
“Strangely, she tends to leave Harry at home.”
Petronella added in a second tweet, “La Megs has become pally with someone from a very famous American family, whose wealth surpasses that of the Windsors.”
She then asked, “Why is Meghan a woman of vision, anyway? Tunnel vision would be a better description.”
Although Markle looked radiant in a gold dress at the awards ceremony in New York City last month, her big night was marred when a rep for her and the Duke of Sussex, 38, claimed the couple had been involved in a “near-catastrophic car chase” with paparazzi.
Hours later, however, police splashed cold water on the royals’ allegations, with an NYPD source telling The Post that the pursuit “definitely wasn’t two hours” as originally claimed and that there were “no collision reports or 911 calls.”
The paparazzi agency in question, Backgrid, also vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

“According to the photographers present, there were no near-collisions or near-crashes during this incident,” a spokesperson for the agency said in a statement.
“The photographers have reported feeling that the couple was not in immediate danger at any point.”
Even “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg acted dubiously upon hearing about the so-called “chase.”
“I think people in New York know if it was possible to have car chases in New York, we’d all make it to the theater on time,” the EGOT winner, 67, joked.
“I think their spokesperson referenced something that you generally would reference in Los Angeles. That’s where you have chases. That’s where you can move at high speeds.”
“Respectfully, considering the duke’s family history, one would have to think nothing of the couple or anybody associated with them to believe this was any sort of PR stunt,” their publicist Ashley Hansen told Page Six, referencing Princess Diana’s fatal car crash with paparazzi in 1997.
“Quite frankly, I think that’s abhorrent.”
