Meghan Learning New Fashion Rules As A Royal Wife

MEGHAN Markle has had to give up a lot of things after marrying into the royal wedding – and there’s one item in particular that she has to be careful about.

Wedges are said to be despised by the Queen so royal women avoid wearing them in her presence.

A source told Vanity Fair: “The Queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes.

“She really doesn’t like them and it’s well known among the women in the family.”

Other royal fashion rules Meghan has to follow

Only natural-looking polish is allowed at royal events.

The Queen has worn the light pink Ballet Slippers shade by Essie for the past 28 years (£7.99, Superdrug).

Clutches can be used as an excuse to not shake hands. So it’s time to ditch the cross-body bags, Meg.

Just let your assistant hold all your essentials.

Meghan is a fan of a hat and has been seen wearing a selection over the years including baseball caps, beanies and fedoras.

And despite rocking a few while out on official and unofficial appearances with Prince Harry, they must be off by 6pm.

A royal rule is strictly no headgear other than a tiara can be worn past that hour.

All royal women must wear weights in their dress hems to stop them flying up in the breeze.

It’s said no matter the weather, a royal female must wear a pair of nude tights.

That could explain why, on her first public appearance as a Duchess, Meghan opted for an odd pair of white tights.

The temperature may have hit the twenties, but the American’s legs were firmly under wraps.

However,

Done new royal was accused of a royal etiquette blunder by sitting in a “disrespectful” way at the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards.

The Duchess of Sussex accompanied her husband Prince Harry today to the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards, which honours young people and their achievements from across the Commonwealth.

Her crossed-legged position prompted hundreds of comments on the Royal Family’s Facebook page.

One royal fan wrote: “The Duchess of Sussex has her legs crossed wrong. What a disrespect to the Queen. All royal ladies cross at the ankles or put both legs to the side.”

Another person said: “Meghan don’t cross your legs Queen doesn’t like that.”

However, many of Meghan’s fans jumped to the new royal’s defence.

One said: “Pretty sure the Queen is more concerned with Meghan’s passion and commitment to the Commonwealth than how she crosses her legs.”

And Karen Carter wrote on Facebook: “Meghan can cross her legs how she likes, nothing to do with protocol, most Royals do the ‘Duchess slant’ because they were taught that from an early age, Meghan is her own woman!”

No more garlic

Queen Elizabeth simply cannot stand pungent garlic breath, so she has banned the other royals from consuming it in any way while abroad for state banquets and events. In fact, the 92-year-old isn’t crazy about alliums in general, so she would never dare serve anything like French onion soup or tarte à l’oignon.
While giving up garlic might be easy for a very small part of the population, it certainly isn’t for Markle, whose favorite dish is a total garlic bomb. In multiple interviews before she officially became a royal, the Duchess of Sussex waxed poetic about her love of Filipino chicken adobo, which calls for more than a few cloves of the good stuff.
