Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Does Not Like Meghan Markle's Rebellious Style
Since becoming a member of the Royal family in May, Meghan Markle has become pretty good friends with Queen Elizabeth. But, according to a new report, the 92-year-old monarch is not a fan of Markle’s rebellious style. And, she has had a problem with the Duchess of Sussex’s popular fashion sense since the day she walked down the aisle.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the Queen was shocked that Markle wore “such a white dress” for her wedding since she was a divorcee, but the surprises don’t end there. The Queen isn’t a fan of the fact that Markle loves to defy royal style protocol and continues to wear non-British designers, high hemlines, thigh-high slits, and black clothing on non-mourning occasions.
“Meghan is being told she needs to start dressing less like a Hollywood star and more like a Royal,” says a Kensington Palace insider.
And, Markle also caused problems when she didn’t wear a hat during her visit to Cheshire with the Queen. Aides apparently told Markle that the Queen would be wearing a hat, which is a subtle way of telling her that she should do the same.
The Queen has refused to slow down, even though her oldest child just turned 70 years old. Her Majesty hosted a party for Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace, and then afterward she rode horses in Windsor with her youngest child, Prince Edward, who is 54.
Prince Edward reportedly galloped around the grounds while the Queen went at a stately pace. Her riding fashion included a navy blue coat and a headscarf because she doesn’t like to wear a riding helmet. At the same time, Prince Edward wore full riding gear, including a red and black riding hat.
Throughout the decades, the Queen has shared her love of riding with all four of her kids. Her daughter, Princess Anne, is an accomplished equestrian, and she rode one of her mom’s horses when she competed in the Olympics.
Riding has also bonded the Queen with Prince Edward, and a few years ago the Prince and his wife, Sophie the Countess of Wessex, revealed that they spend time with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on most weekends, and the elderly Royal couple are actively a part of their grandchildren’s lives.
The Queen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren have followed in her footsteps when it comes to her love of horses. Zara Tindall, who is the Queen’s granddaughter and Princess Anne’s daughter, is also an Olympic equestrian. And, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have already started their riding lessons.
The only concession Queen Elizabeth has made when it comes to horses is that she has stopped riding in bad weather. A few years ago, she told an aide that she is now a “fair-weather rider” because she doesn’t like “getting cold and wet.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first baby in the spring.
