Meghan breaks royal protocol on first solo engagement

"A princess who still takes the time to shut her auto door", Emily Andrews, the royal correspondent for The Sun tabloid, tweeted.

She then shook hands with one of her hosts before shutting the auto door behind her.

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out for her first solo event this week since becoming a member of the royal family.

Footage of the moment quickly appeared on Twitter, and the reaction from some was nothing short of hysterical.

Meghan Markle apparently shocked onlookers when she closed her own vehicle door after arriving at the Royal Academy of Art in London on Tuesday.

Others gushed that Meghan closing the door proved how "normal" she is.

They, however, soon found themselves on the receiving end of some comments from other royal experts - real ones, this time - who pointed out that they had got their facts wrong.

Several of Cosby's accusers attended the proceedings this week in a Pennsylvania courthouse but did not testify during the retrial.

"Meghan Markle leaves people in shock as she shuts own CAR DOOR on first solo engagement", the Express reported. From Meghan's trademark messy bun, to sleek updos and cascading Hollywood waves, we love looking out for the royal's latest hair look.

She knows it's much more efficient to just shut the damn door and move on.

Despite most people assuming door shutting just wasn't something royals were supposed to do, etiquette and protocol coach William Hanson insisted there were actually no rules in place. Good thing she has arms and is able to close the door!

FROM Hollywood actress, to royalty - the last few years have certainly been a whirlwind for Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Not everyone was quite so taken with Meghan's door-closing gesture.

"Can't wait to shut my auto door a la Meghan later", one quipped.
