Meghan Markle apparently didn't like this royal dress rule

As you may already know, there are dozens of strict dress rules the royal family, in particular royal women, have to follow. These include, but are not limited to, only wearing diamonds after 6pm, wearing nude tights and wearing gloves during specific occasions.

The source told InTouch, ‘She hated always having to be dressed to the nines as a royal and the old-fashioned rules and regulations, like wearing dresses below the knee.’ ‘The Que...

Apparently there's a reason Jessica Mulroney wore blue to the royal wedding

Although it’s been over two years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married, their wedding remains one of the most iconic and talked about ever, thanks to all the significant details that weren’t necessarily apparent at first glance.

And it seems like much planning went into the outfits of the rest of the wedding party, which included Kate Middleton and her adorable children, as well as Meghan’s BFF Jessica Mulroney. The Canadian stylist and marketing consultant played a big role in the ceremony...

Meghan Markle's outfit for last official royal outing was apparently specially planned

Back in early March, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle returned to the UK one last time, to attend the Endeavour Fund Awards, which Harry founded. It was the first time the royal couple had made a public appearance together since moving to Canada and renouncing their titles and official duties. For the occasion, Meghan chose to support a British designer (not unusual for women in the royal family), which was Victoria Beckham, whose designs the Duchess of Sussex has worn several times in the past. She accessorised the turquoise blue pencil dress with her trusted Manolo Blahnik heels and a clutch bag by Stella McCartney. Her outfit made headlines at the time for being so bright and powerful, and quickly earned the title of ‘the revenge dress’. A picture of the couple, surrounded ...
