'Down to earth' Meghan closes her own vehicle door

The Duchess of Sussex attended her first solo engagement at the Royal Academy of Arts in London on Tuesday.

The exhibition, which includes items from Melanesia, Micronesia, Polynesia and New Zealand, marks 250 years since British explorer James Cook set off aboard the HMS Endeavour for the South Pacific.

As always, the Duchess was immaculately turned out, choosing a sleek black Givenchy dress and black heels.

"This is not a protocol breach", he wrote.

In just the last couple of weeks alone, Meghan has launched her first solo project as a royal as well as hosted her first palace event.

Social media lit up with those who wanted to have their say on the matter, and opinions were mixed and often humorous.

Despite most people assuming door shutting just wasn't something royals were supposed to do, etiquette and protocol coach William Hanson insisted there were actually no rules in place.

The Duchess of Sussex already has a huge fan base since joining the royal family in May 2018 following her handsome wedding to Prince Harry.

Others were quick to point out that Meghan has only been a royal for four months - she's likely to still be in the habit of shutting her own doors. Plus she is totally used to doing that, is probably even a reflex!
