How Meghan Markle dared to break protocol at Queen's birthday parade

Adjust Comment Print

Meghan is no stranger to the Invictus Games making her first public outing with the Prince, who is patron of the charity, a year ago at the Games in Toronto.

While there's a deeper implication to the remark - which suggests that joining the royal family lacks "joy" - the internet is focused on having a field day with McCartney's reference to the duchess's "human" side. Yes, you read that correctly, and while-no surprises here-it is Meghan Markle, she is now a Duchess and did just make royal history.

Meghan opted for a light pink off-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera.

But whatever the protocol, Meghan clearly still controls her own wardrobe and opted for a dress reminiscent of the Givenchy design she wore on her big day.

Meghan Markle is now officially part of The Royal Foundation, the main royal charity previously set up for Prince William, Kate Middleton and Meghan's husband, Prince Harry, to carry out their philanthropic work.

"I do feel her choice of an off the shoulder dress was pushing it for HRH Queen Elizabeth's Birthday celebration", wrote another on social media.

"She was still near the heart of the action", Little says.

But, Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, had nothing but praise from Meghan's summery look.

While at the ceremony, Meghan could be seen standing on the balcony with the rest of the family. "She was central rather than the alternative of being in the front row and along the balcony to the left or right".

As it turns out, despite her strength and independence, Markle's new lifestyle requires a guiding hand (or two)-especially when it comes to navigating the nitty gritty of the etiquette that accompanies royal traditions. "She really wants his views", a source told the Daily Mail.
