Meghan Markle's 'Accent' In New Documentary Creates Twitter Storm

Irene MckinneyOct 01, 2018

Within hours, global media outlets shrieked that Meghan had "broken royal protocol" by taking door-closing duties into her own pristine hands. When she exited her auto, she closed the door on her own, even though someone had opened the door for her, according to BBC News.

"First time I've seen an on-duty princess shut her own auto door", wrote one Twitter user.

Meghan's solo visit to the exhibition came exactly a year after she and Harry made their first official public outing as a couple at the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada.

Yet, when Meghan Markle, the USA actress turned newly-wed wife of Britain's Prince Harry, closed her own auto door, a wave of shock and awe rolled over Britain.

During a speaking engagement in Namibia on Tuesday, the 36-year-old Duke of Cambridge joked about why Kate was disappointed she couldn't make the trip.

Others however, were utterly stunned that Meghan closing a auto door was making news. "Good thing she has arms and is able to close the door!"

While there are usually staff members to open and close a auto door for royal families, there are also no rules that claim the royals can't do it themselves.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Prince Harry and Meghan - have announced they are visiting East and West Sussex on Wednesday, October 3.

But the biggest shock came when her father Thomas Markle Sr was caught staging paparazzi photos for money and then pulled out of walking his daughter down the aisle, due to heart problems.

Others gushed that Meghan closing the door proved how "normal" she is.

"Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit". "This is nearly twice the 26 per cent who think she should dedicate herself to Royal duties".

Another wrote: "I give up on this world when people are congratulating a person shutting a vehicle door on their own".
