Moments when Meghan Markle breaks the British royal dress codes
Duchess Meghan is always different from other duchesses because of her background and style in fashion. The American actress, after becoming the Duchess of Sussex, has been the British royal dress codes several times.
In a recent appearance, Meghan Markle has chosen a denim dress. Denim is a material that the British Royal limits wearing in formal events.
1. She wears suit in a formal event
Normally, at formal events such as prom, the royal women often choose evening gowns. Meghan has gone against the tradition with a stylish suit design by Alexander McQueen. Combined with a plain white shirt and simple heels, she looks strikingly modern.

3. She prefers sabrina neckline dress

4. She does not stick with clutch bags
Clutch handbags are often the favorite of British Royal women because they can help them to avoid hand shake with others. Princess Diana even used her clutch bags as a “shield” to protect herself from paparazzi when she got off the car. However, Meghan Markle likes to choose handbags based on her costumes.
Before meeting Prince Harry, Meghan already liked the convenience of big bags.
