Meghan Markle Has Broken A Royal Rule In ‘Trooping The Colour’ Parade
The Trooping the Colour parade in London, an event to mark the Queen’s 92nd birthday, is set on today’s date, June the 9th. Apart from Prince Philip (97, on Sunday) who has retired from royal duties last year – all the other royals were there, like Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Duchess of Sussex, however, seemed to have had another day of trying to look her very best. She appeared wearing a bespoke pink Carolina Herrera design, and she looked, simply, stunning.
People have taken to social media to comment and share their opinions on the appearance of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, praising her and her glam:

I agree she looks exceptionally lovely, as royal as she can get. The glam is there, the beautiful dress design is there as well – but the lovely Duchess of Sussex, although looking stunning, has broken a really important royal rule.
She appeared at her first Trooping the Colour, wearing a dress that doesn’t conform to the royal fashion rules. She exposed her shoulders.
According to The Sun, fashion tradition usually dictates that Royal women do not wear revealing and off-shoulder styles.
Seems like Meghan Markle has taken to control her own fashion choices, no matter what the Royal protocol says. Reminds me of Princess Diana, back in her day. There are quite a few noticeable cases in which Princess Diana, broke the royal traditions and had her own version of what she thought was right.
There were large crowds of people watching the ceremony of this Saturday. Around 1,000 soldiers marched to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall. In the midst of these soldiers was a 22-year-old Sikh from Leicester, Guardsman Charanpreet Singh Lall, who became the first soldier to wear a turban in the history of the parade.
“I’m quite proud and I know that a lot of other people are proud of me as well.
For myself, being the first turban-wearing Sikh to troop the colour and to be part of the escort it is a really high honour for myself, and hopefully for everyone else as well.
My mum was crying on the day I passed out so I wonder what is going to happen to her when she sees me in this,” Charanpreet told the BBC.
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wore her light pink, off-shoulder dress with a beautiful hat and totally managed to look like a stunner. Her appropriate manner of behaving really makes her seem like the royalty she is. So, I think, breaking a little rule may not be such a big deal after all.
