Prince Harry reportedly vetoed an outfit Meghan Markle picked out for their next major royal tour as husband and wife.
The Duchess of Sussex has been making plenty of style statements during her short time as a British royal, but according to the Daily Mail she’s been banned from wearing a tuxedo on the upcoming tour of Australia.
Set to take place in October, the newspaper states that when Markle wanted to pick a masculine tuxedo from Stella McCartney for an evening event, Harry had to veto her choice – probably because his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, prefers to see women traditionally in dresses and skirts. A source from the fashion team at Kensington Palace said:
“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.”
The Duchess has been seen in a number of tailored outfits, including the tour of Ireland and for the Endeavour Fund Awards’ Ceremony at Goldsmiths’ Hall in London.
The British newspaper also made a link between her fashion taste with the late Princess Diana who famously wore a tuxedo to a dog racing event at Wembley Stadium in 1988.
Let’s see if Meghan can find the balance between royal family’s strict fashion rules and her own taste.
