THE QUEEN may be cheering on Duchess Meghan from the sidelines (and asking the rest of the family to give her a T so she can proceed to cheer-spell out THOMAS MARKLE SUCKS), but that doesn’t mean The Queen is a fan of Duchess Meghan’s wardrobe. Meghan’s clothing has gotten her in trouble in the past, specifically her pants. And it’s not because horny Prince Harry keeps asking Meghan if she’s wearing space pants, due to the fact that her ass is out of this world.
Royal ladies – including The Queen – are often seen looking like they just stepped out of an Easter Sunday church service, modest skirts with pantyhose and all. But Meghan keeps showing up to events in chic pantsuits. Today she committed her latest act of covered-leg treason at the 2018 WellChild Awards in London. People says she arrived wearing a black Altuzarra suit that no doubt has The Queen seeing red. Terrible joke, I know – almost as terrible as Meghan’s choice to wear pants, I’m sure.
Sources have previously told People that Meghan knows about the whole “cover your legs in a single tube of fabric” rule, but that she’s got a hard time accepting it. Obviously it’s probably not a stretch to assume that Meghan is causing The Queen to gasp in horror back at the palace by slipping into pants.
That’s not to say Meghan is fighting all the Royal style rules. People points out that she’s been seen in pantyhose, and has traded in her large handbags for smaller ones.
It’s 2018, so I’m still not sure what the big deal is with Meghan wearing fancy pants. Not to mention that when Harry got with Meghan, she was on a show called Suits, and I’d say she pretty much set expectations from the get-go with that one. But if Meghan ever wants to get out of an awkward pants conversation with The Queen, she should just ask “Okay, but what about a skort?” That kind of catch-22 question should keep The Queen’s brain occupied for at least a month.
Here’s more of Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry at the 2018 WellChild Awards in London today. She looks good, even if those boot cut trousers and pointy-toed shoes are giving me serious flashbacks to my 2008 job hostessing at a wine bar.
