Rule no. 1: No pantsuits

This is believed to be Queen Elizabeth II’s biggest pet peeve: royal women in pantsuits. Markle has jumped on the pantsuit bandwagon on several occasions.

Meghan Markle just wore one of the Queen's 'biggest pet peeves'

It’s no secret Meghan Markle is a trendsetter. Despite being beat out by Kate Middleton for the royal fashion influencer title, the Duchess of Sussex is still causing items to sell out worldwide.

Often wearing unlikely royal looks, the former actress isn’t afraid of challenging the norm — and rules.

While there isn’t actually a royal rule book when it comes to fashion, there are wardrobe expectations that the family adheres to.

On Tuesday, the Duchess attended the WellChild Awards alongside husband Prince Harry, and in true Markle fashion, she bucked royal protocol and wore what’s allegedly Queen Elizabeth II’s biggest fashion pet peeve: a pantsuit. 

It’s far from the first time Markle has “broken” fashion rules. Here are just a few of the ways the Duchess has bucked royal protocol in the name of style.
