Meghan Markle broke the Internet ever since news broke out about her dating Prince Harry. The couple made their engagement official last year and melted millions of hearts worldwide when they got hitched in May this year. The much in love couple who is setting major ‘relationship goals’ announced to the world that they are indeed expecting their first child together, parking all the speculations. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their Royal tour to Australia and Markle’s choice of outfits are being heavily panned.
The former American actress has always spoken her mind and has already broken many Royal protocols. Meghan, on her Australian tour is seen wear breezy maxi dresses featuring singlets and thigh-high slits. This hasnt really gone down well with a certain section of people who started shaming the pregnant Duchess for her choice of outfits. People really called out her Reformation apparel for it being ‘disrespectful’ and ‘inappropriate’. They started criticizing the Duchess when Kensington Palace took to Instagram to share pictures of hers from the tour. Critics called her out saying that the dress was extremely revealing for a Royal engagement. Some were way too harsh calling it “trashy”.
However, there were also a section of people who jumped in defense of the former Suit’s star. Like any other sensible individual they asked everyone to not judge her as it was solely her choice. Royalty or not royalty, a woman cannot be shamed for her own choices. Many of them even pointed out that since it was so hot where they were travelling, it only made sense for her to wear breezy outfits like any woman would.
Meghan has been breaking royal “fashion protocols and norms” ever since she has become the Duchess. Ardent and strict royal fans pointed out that she wore wedges when it is clear knowledge that the Queen dislikes that particular shoe style. She has also been going bare-legged when she is supposed to be wearing stockings with her skirts and dresses.
Markle is definitely a fashion and style icon and all of us are aware of the “Meghan effect” that has been following up ever since she has been associated with Prince Harry. Its is notably interesting to see how the new generation of Royals are more easy-going and have a high relatability quotient with the common man as they dress and talk without holding a guard. Meghan is definitely following the footsteps of her late mother-in-law Diana, as she was equally free-spirited and a People’s Princess.
It’ll be quite interesting to see if Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge also changes her wardrobe style and losens out a bit.
