Meghan Markle Has Reportedly Been Banned from Wearing a Tuxedo on Her Trip to Australia.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first overseas royal tour will see them fly to Australia this spring, and while that’s still a couple of months away (giving us ample time to get overly hype for their visit) Meghan will have already started planning out her wardrobe for the trip.
Whilst her husband wouldn’t normally be involved in these sartorial matters, it seems that he put a stopper in one of her outfit choices. Meghan reportedly told Harry that she wanted to wear a Stella McCartney tuxedo (no doubt after the success of her reception dress) for an evening event on their tour. However, according to the Daily Mail, Harry vetoed the tuxedo due to his grandmother’s penchant for seeing female family members in more traditional options, such as formal dresses and skirts.
A source from the fashion team inside Kensington Palace explained, “Meghan is being told she needs to stop dressing like a Hollywood star and start dressing like a Royal. Meghan wanted to wear a tuxedo-style suit but Harry said it wasn’t traditional enough.”
This change of heart seems a little harsh seeing as it wouldn’t be the first time Meghan wore a tuxedo suit for a public outing—with the Duchess wearing one for the Endeavour Fund Awards at Goldsmith’s Hall in London a few weeks ago.
Here’s hoping that Meghan Markle continues her rebellious trend of breaking royal protocol and wears the tuxedo Down Under regardless of what her husband says.
