Did Meghan SERIOUSLY breach royal protocol?

Did Meghan SERIOUSLY breach royal protocol?

But her simple gesture sparked a huge debate on social media about whether she broke royal protocol by closing her own auto door.

Meghan Markle amazed fans after shutting her vehicle door, after arriving at her first solo engagement last night.

The 37-year-old had been stopping by the opening of the Oceania exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts at the time, with the online world immediately praising her for being so down to earth. However, for a senior royal, who usually leaves such menial tasks to her security team, it's more significant.

Meghan made in headlines in June after she crossed her legs while sitting with Harry and his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, at a Buckingham Palace reception for the Queen's Young Leaders.

The man in a tuxedo who welcomed her with a warm handshake and appeared to be preparing to close the door quickly swiped his hand over his mouth the moment Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, closed the door behind her back without looking.

Meghan's every smile, step and wave has been scrutinised by royalty watchers curious to see how the mixed-race American actress will perform in her new role.

She then shook hands with one of her hosts before shutting the auto door behind her. She was raised an independent, American woman. What you may not know, though, is that her blouse, from the Misha Nonoo collection, is deemed "The Husband Shirt".

Another added: "She is still used to doing certain things like closing her own door". "Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit".
