Yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, arrived at the Royal Academy of Arts to attend the opening of an exhibition. Having had the door opened for her, she stepped out and shut the door behind her.
Now, opening and closing the car door is not usually regarded as a big deal except for partners in love. But it seems to be for fans and lovers of the royal family
While some praised her for being humble and down to earth, others believe what she did was completely inappropriate and doesn’t reflect her royal status.
Dignitaries and members of the royal family usually have a member of staff assigned with the responsibility of opening and closing the car door.
Meghan’s simple act soon overshadowed the event as it became a debate on Twitter. See reactions below –
