Meghan Markle has broken royal protocol once again and it was not her clothing! The new royal family member was in attendance at the Young Leader Awards at Buckingham Palace today and while there, the former actress crossed her legs.
Markle looked stunning in a pink Prada ensemble but people were quick to notice the fact that she crossed her legs while seated, something a royal woman should traditionally not do.
Meghan was caught on camera sitting next to her husband Harry and Queen Elizabeth II and her crossing her legs bothered some people on social media.
A lot of comments on the photos were quick to pour in, pointing out Meghan’s mistake or rebellion against the rule.
At the same time however, some mentioned that Kate Middleton, and even the late Princess Diana had been photographed with their legs crossed before.
‘Harry looks scruffy, Meghan is crossing her legs…awful photo. Am I being too picky? ‘ one person tweeted.
‘Just picky about the fact that Henry fell in love with a mixed girl and you bigots can’t stand it. Thanks for asking. #MeghanMarkle @KensingtonRoyal @RoyalFamily,’ another was quick to reply and therefore defend the Duchess.
Previously, one source told ET that Meghan cares a lot about following the rules as much as she could which is why she’s been relying on the royal staff at the palace as well as members of the family for advice and reassurance.

‘She has been warmly embraced by both Kate and Camilla [Duchess of Cornwall], and even Harry has been doing what he can to make sure she feels comfortable and at ease,’ the insider also noted.
What do you think about Meghan Markle’s newest faux pas? Is it that bad or is it totally acceptable?
