Meghan Markle Reveals Her Royal Style in a Big Way

When it comes to her personal style, Meghan Markle is a bit of a rebel by way of the queen’s strict fashion rules. That said, since Markle and Prince Harry’s engagement, the U.S. actress has definitely taken note of what she can and can’t wear — with the exception of her revealing engagement dress.

And though we’ve only caught a glimpse of what Markle’s royal style looks like, she recently made a big step in her fashion choices. Find out how, plus see some of her most royal — and controversial — style looks, ahead.

When it comes to casual attire, the queen of England still expects members of her family to dress in a smart, sophisticated way. And though the white button-up shirt she wore to the 2017 Invictus Games fits within the guidelines, her ripped jeans do not.

Since her engagement, Markle has given her wardrobe a royal makeover. That said, she has found ways around some of the queen’s rules. Although it was long sleeved and featured a full skirt, Markle’s engagement dress was a bit controversial for the royal family.

Following her engagement announcement, Markle attended her first official engagement with Prince Harry. And though her outfit was more modern compared to the looks we’ve seen on Kate Middleton, it was appropriate and in line with the family’s dress code.

One of the biggest moves Markle has made with her fashion since joining the royal family is her first hat. As far as formal occasions are concerned, hats are a must in Britain — and the royal family makes no exception.

For her first Christmas with the royal family, Markle chose a hat that was symbolic of her personal style, yet perfect for a royal family church service.
