The Duchess of Sussex has been told to switch up her wardrobe. Ever since Meghan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry, she has been considered to rip up the Royal rule book. However, while the world has loved her fashion sense, it is also being seen against the Royal norms.
According to the sources, the 37-year-old has been told to dress more like a royal and less like a Hollywood star. Although the relationship between Queen Elizabeth and Meghan is good, it has been said in the past that she frowns upon some of her new granddaughter-in-laws choices.
The monarch was surprised that she had chosen to wear the white Givenchy dress for her May wedding, even though she has been married before.
In June, during a royal visit to Runcorn, in Cheshire, Meghan Markle is reported to have irritated the Queen by declining to follow her example and wear a hat. It was her first solo visit with the Queen after her wedding. The Queen is a perfectionist for the rules and it’s claimed there was some tension between them over the faux pas.
According to the Mail on Sunday, Meghan Markle has been advised to dress more traditionally at certain events. A fashion team source said, “Meghan Markle is being told she needs to start dressing less like a Hollywood star and more like a Royal.”
Often, Meghan’s style falls within the royal rules, but there have been other times when she has pushed the margins.
In August, while attending a charity performance of Hamilton with Prince Harry, she wore a short, black tuxedo dress. The dress challenged the Royal tradition on two counts— the color black and the hemline that was way above the knee.
Besides, while other royal women —including Princess Diana — prefer homegrown talent, Meghan is also a fan of non-British designers.
The Duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant with her first child, has been attracting all eyes with whatever she wears during the royal engagements and public outings. She sparks new trends with her style and is considered a fashion icon by many.
Although Meghan Markle is a part of the Royals, she is setting significant paradigm for women globally to follow their own heart. In a world where women are still living in suppressed conditions, Meghan’s stance against the Royal policies depicts the courage that every woman should look up to.
