Jamaican MP Lisa Hanna Addresses 'Snub' Reports Between Herself and Duchess Kate

Jamaican MP Lisa Hanna has
further addressed reports that she “snubbed” the Duchess of
Cambridge when she met her on day one of the royals’ Jamaica
tour.

The politician, who earlier
this week insisted she had a “very interactive and pleasant
conversation” with William and Kate and welcomed them
“wholeheartedly” to her country, insisted that there was no
negativity between herself and the Duchess.

Taking to Twitter, MP Lisa
Hanna condemned the “snub” reports, posting: “The global media
frenzy which followed was deeply concerning, as at no time during our pleasant
exchanges would I have needed to ‘shun’ her.

“The world is
interconnected, & what may seem like fun and games to one party can cause
significant damage to people’s lives & reputations, especially when we
position them as the protagonist to further manipulative agendas and
readership.

“There are too many
global problems that have been caused by misinterpretation and an inability to
understand the truth. And the truth, in this case, is that we had amicable
interactions, and there was no negativity between us whatsoever.”

MP Lisa Hanna further insisted
she has “nothing but respect” for Kate. “Much ado has been made
of my supposed ‘snub’ of Duchess Catherine because of a two-second manipulated
video clip taken out of context. I have nothing but respect for the Duchess and
I treated her with that respect and cordiality, as evidenced by many other
photos and videos,” she continued.

The former Miss World was part
of the line-up of dignitaries who were on hand to greet William and Kate at Norman
Manley International Airport on Tuesday. A clip of her chatting to Kate went
viral on Twitter as some fans claimed the politician gave the Duchess the cold
shoulder.

But MP Lisa Hanna has been
adamant that the pair held mutual respect for each other. Earlier this week,
she tweeted: “We had a very interactive and pleasant conversation
throughout the proceedings as we talked about family, our cultures and our
people.”

Referencing her wish for
Jamaica to break away from the British monarch, she added: “There’s no
doubt at this time that we all seek our true independence and want to develop
systems & strategies where we become free from the monarchy. But until then
we will always remain a courteous and respectful country.”
