The Outdated Royal Protocol Meghan Markle Just Smashed
The Duchess proves she plays by her own rules.
Meghan Markle left everyone a little shook with her surprise attendance at The Fashion Awards in London on Monday night.
The 37-year-old was there to present Givenchy's Claire Waight Keller -- the woman behind her wedding dress -- with the Womanswear Designer of the Year award.
At first glance, Meghan appeared every inch the perfect royal by wearing a conservative one-shoulder black floor-length gown which accentuated her growing baby bump.
But, on closer inspection, it appears the former TV star actually broke a major royal protocol by wearing a dark shade of nail polish.
Bold nail colours are generally considered a big 'no-no' for anyone in the royal family, that's because The Queen doesn't really like them. According to OK! Magazine, Her Maj's favourite shade is Essie's Ballet Slippers -- which is a pale pink.
It's an unspoken rule by which The Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall have both been abiding.
Instead, the royal rebel decided to don a very vampy manicure look, wearing what appears to be a dark eggplant shade, which perfectly complimented her long black gown.
And people loved it.
What a mood.
