The Royal princess Meghan Markle is having a tough time following royal protocols. Several times, the royal couple – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has broken royal family laws. In a similar kind of incident, the Duchess of Sussex recently attended her first solo engagement – the opening of Oceania exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts as a royal on Tuesday, September 26. On arriving, the Duchess chose to close the car door by herself while greeting in Maori tradition. Something that the royal family is not supposed to do as it is against their protocol.
The incident sparked debate all over the social media. Many supported her and many said that she broke a royal protocol once again. For royalty and dignitaries, there is always someone to open and close the door for them for security reasons. However, Meghan closing a door was just out of force of habit.
In the video, which is going viral on the Internet, Meghan is seen welcomed by a man in a tuxedo with a warm handshake and it appeared that he was preparing to shut the door of the black sedan when princess waved her hand and closed the door.
Many royal greeters are making a huge deal out of it. However, Twitter is going berserk with hilarious memes and posts poking at the British media. While some Twitterati is asking that what’s the big deal about ‘Duchess of Sussex’ closing the car door and some are just appreciating her gesture for being humble and grounded.
