Meghan Markle Pregnant Prince Harry

Meghan Markle Pregnant Prince Harry

The gesture is so mechanical few people even notice it.

She's not the first royal to do this, her husband Prince Harry also closed the door of his Range Rover at the launch of Together: Our Community Cookbook earlier this month.

Videos of the brazen moment flooded social media and generated headlines that searched for adjectives to describe the momentous nature of what had just occurred.

She then shook hands with one of her hosts before shutting the vehicle door behind her.

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out for her first solo event this week since becoming a member of the royal family.

Meghan Markle wore a sleek Givenchy dress at the Royal Academy of Art in London on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.

After a medical examination, Apollo said he was brought dead at 2.29 am today. He, however, added no complaint had been registered.

As she left the vehicle, keen royal watchers noticed that the Duchess of Sussex, looking stunning in a black Givenchy dress, closed the auto door herself instead of waiting for a member of her team to do it.

Making her arrival, Meghan is seen getting out of the auto having had the door opened for her.

She is adored by the public and shadowed at every appearance by the press. "Usually royalty and dignitaries have someone to open/close auto doors for security reasons: nothing to do with 'princess behavior.' Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit".

Many fans praised Meghan for being "humble" and "down to earth".

"This is not a protocol breach", he wrote.

"Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit".
