It doesn’t take much to get the press in a tizz over Meghan Markle, but the latest furore is surely the most ridiculous yet. On her first solo outing as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan arrived on time, immaculately dressed and ready for work. Stepping out the car, she shook the hand of the gentleman sent to greet her and closed the door behind her before walking away. Not much wrong with any of that you’d think? But you’d be wrong. “The trials of a modern royal” was how that very moment was reported in the press. “Woman shuts car door” would have been a more accurate one, as apparently that was Megan’s major faux pas. Apparently it’s just not the done thing. Here’s hoping this very ‘modern’ royal turns this archaic rule on its’ head before all common sense flies out the window.
