Meghan Markle shock: Duchess’ 3 worst royal fashion faux pas

Meghan Markle made a number of fashion blunders when she was still with the royal family.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are no longer working royals. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step back from their royal duties earlier this year. However, when they were still with the royal family, the duchess made several mistakes.

Meghan Markle brings back pantsuits

Meghan Markle was very confident with her fashion choices and brought pantsuits in the royal fashion. In fact, many were shocked when she wore an Alexander McQueen suit for her evening debut.

Several criticized the duchess' choice because, for them, it was "un-royal." Many also aired their disappointment for her wardrobe choice on Twitter.

“When you keep hoping she’ll make better choices,” one social media user wrote.

“I am disappointed. She looks good in dresses. Why not wear one?” another user said.

“Can’t she please wear a dress to one of these engagements?!” Elieen Carter commented.

Queen Elizabeth II prefers seeing ladies from the royal family in skirts and dresses.

This is also the reason Kate Middleton dresses the way she does. The Duchess of Cambridge also dressed differently before she married Prince William.

Prince Harry’s wife skips pantyhose

Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and the rest of the female royals should wear pantyhose in public. However, the duchess made another huge mistake when she skipped it during her engagement announcement.

The Duchess of Sussex raised some eyebrows when ardent royal followers noticed that she went bare-legged during their engagement photo op.

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter was among those who believed Markle broke the royal protocol for not wearing stockings.

Arbiter told INSIDER that wearing "nude" stockings is "really the only hard, steadfast rule in terms of what the queen requires."

In November 2018, Markle wore tights when she joined Prince Harry at the Royal Albert Hall. However, her outfit turned heads for all the wrong reasons – it was "glaring."

"Meghan rewearing her fab Stella McCartney coat from Cardiff visit, but I cannot get over the glare of these tights," one netizen wrote on Twitter.

Meghan wearing wedges

Meghan Markle is fond of wearing wedges. She has been photographed wearing it in various royal engagements.

Kate Middleton shares the same fondness for the footwear. However, Queen Elizabeth II hates it.

"The Queen isn't a fan of wedged shoes," an insider told Vanity Fair. "She really doesn't like them and it's well known among the women in the family."
