Video of Meghan Markle breaking royal protocol goes viral
The moment when the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle violates the rules of royal etiquette was filmed and went viral on social media. The incident happened in 2019, and all the British tabloids were buzzing about it.
This was reported by the Mirror. The video shows the Duchess arriving at the event and getting out of the car and closing the door herself (scroll to the bottom of the page to see it). This behavior is contrary to the protocol that all members of the royal family must follow.
The video, which was posted on TikTok, quickly aroused the interest of Internet users and gathered many comments. At the time, Meghan was still officially part of the royal family along with her husband Prince Harry.
The comments recalled the moment in 2019. One user wrote: "I remember this - the newspapers said she locked the car door herself, that it was unacceptable, and that she needed to be taught protocol." Another added: "I remember when they were scared that she had locked her own car door. I was thinking, why this news... why literally a whole report?" "Who knew that locking a door would make headlines and lead to a report," wrote a third.
At the time, Meghan's gesture made headlines as it was her first solo event since becoming a member of the royal family. By closing the car door with her own hands, some praised Meghan for her "down-to-earth" and "humble" stance, while others joked that she might fire someone from their job and that she was "avoiding" royal etiquette.
