Former American actress Meghan Markle who is now known as the Duchess of Sussex after getting married to Prince Harry this year at a royal wedding, attended by many known faces of Hollywood. Meghan Markle is popular for her role in legal drama series, ‘Suits’.


Every now and then, Meghan has been in headlines for generous reasons like following the royal protocols in her own ways or even breaking a one or two rule keeping the dignity of Royals in her mind. Interestingly, she is loved all around the world for her very down to earth nature when it comes to a few rules. Since the day, Meghan becomes the member of Royal Family, media is keeping an eye on her moves.


Meghan is always compared to Princess Diana for her prominent ways and gestures of treating the ordinary people. Recently, when Meghan walked out of her car, she closed the door herself which left everyone quite surprised as there is always someone who does this for the Royal family members. An International leading daily reported, “Meghan Markle leaves people in shock as she shuts own CAR DOOR on first solo engagement”.

This incident happened when Meghan arrived on Tuesday at her first solo engagement — the opening of an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the AFP reports. A video went viral on the social media since then.

Even BBC quickly responded to her gesture while using Twitter and said, “Meghan closes a car door and some people can’t handle it”. A man in a tuxedo who welcomed the Princess was about to close the door for Duchess of Sussex when suddenly he put his hand on his mouth as soon as he saw the queen doing it for herself.

Emily Andrews, the royal correspondent for the Sun, also took to her Twitter and applaud Markle for her gesture and wrote, “A princess who still takes the time to shut her car door, Well done Meghan!”.

William Hanson, an Etiquette and protocol coach came up for Meghan Markle and made everyone understand that she has not broken any protocol. He said, “This is not a protocol breach. Usually, royalty and dignitaries have someone to open/close car doors for security reasons: nothing to do with “princess behaviour”. Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit.”

Here’s what he tweeted:

Well, still there are many people who need to understand that down to earth nature doesn’t mean the Royal are breaking their protocols or rules. And we loved Meghan Markle for her often so kind moves!
