Within hours, global media outlets shrieked that Meghan had "broken royal protocol" by taking door-closing duties into her own pristine hands.
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. (Thankfully we didn't have to wait long!) And as it turns out, Meghan's choice of attire for the event actually very ironically predicted her future marital status.
Meghan Markle amazed fans after shutting her vehicle door, after arriving at her first solo engagement last night.
The Duchess of Sussex stepped out for her first solo event this week since becoming a member of the royal family.
