What are the Queen's fashion rules?

While Meghan Markle has shown she’s in no rush to adopt royal fashion etiquette — the bride-to-be was in tip-top form during her first public appearance with the Queen on Monday.

Though she’s snubbed the royal tradition thus far, Markle slid into a pair of nude pantyhose for the 2018 Commonwealth Day service alongside Her Royal Highness at Westminster Abbey — proving she’ll play be every part the princess when the occasion calls.

“I think we’ll see a gradual change in Meghan’s style over time to conform to those [royal] elements,” royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter recently told Insider. “At the same time, I think what everyone loves about her is her own personal unique style. Hopefully, she’ll be able to find the balance.”

Fingers crossed. Royal wardrobes have long been determined by a strict protocol, which is why Kate Middleton always carries a clutch and why Princess Diana never wore gloves.

From skirt length to nail polish colour — we take a closer look at the fashion expectations that rule the royal family. Click through the gallery to see what the American future-royal is in for.
