Meghan Markle Shuts Her Car Door, Stirs Debate On Breaking Royal Protocol

MEGHAN-MARKLE

MEGHAN-MARKLE

They, however, soon found themselves on the receiving end of some comments from other royal experts - real ones, this time - who pointed out that they had got their facts wrong.

The Duchess of Sussex attended her first solo engagement at the Royal Academy of Arts in London on Tuesday.

"She is such a cool Duchess", one fan marveled, with another writing, "My heroine 3".

One disbelieving user wrote: "Meghan closing her own auto door is iconic".

Social media lit up with those who wanted to have their say on the matter, and opinions were mixed and often humorous.

People Magazine believes it's all down to Meghan being a feminist - and the second video at the bottom of the page confirms she's done it before.

USA 'disturbed and deeply disappointed' by European Union over Iran sanctions
The US president is in the Security Council chair on Wednesday because America now holds the rotating presidency. He said "we are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world".

While many praised the "humble" Duchess for taking the initiative and not expecting things to be done for her, the experts have said it's not actually a breach of protocol - at least not on behalf of the Duchess.

Whether her security is quicker to shut the door for her after this remains to be seen. A woman can wear what she chooses, but in Meghan's position - cue the vehicle door moment - everything she does/says/ and wears will be picked over.

"I love that she dressed in black so that the kids will really be the stars of the night", wrote one commentator on social media after Meghan and Harry's appearance at the 2018 WellChild Awards earlier this month.

When the Duchess of Sussex arrived at the event, the auto door was opened, she got out of the vehicle, and shook hands with the hosts before swiftly shutting the auto door.

Markle first made waves after her wedding, and on the way to the post-ceremony reception, when she reached over to make sure Prince Harry's door was unlocked while they were getting into their convertible.

Not everyone was quite so taken with Meghan's door-closing gesture.
