The royal rule Meghan Markle broke during the engagement photoshoot.


Someone please call the corgis because something ~ very ~ controversial has just gone down at Buckingham Palace.

It turns out Meghan Markle was missing a key piece of clothing during her engagement photoshoot with Prince Harry (You know, the fancy photoshoot that just happened to occur after Harry proposed to Meghan over a roast chicken dinner #romance).

Her, erm, pantyhose.

Eh, what even are pantyhose I hear you ask?

Well, they're a very unnecessary form of leg covering that make your legs look like slightly better ~ and shinier ~ versions of themselves. Apparently, there's a strict, unspoken pantyhose policy in the royal family.

The Queen loves em' and she's been covering up her legs with very expensive nylon for 91 years now. Kate Middleton swears by them and often wears glossy, flesh-toned pantyhose during her public appearances.


And according to a ~ very important ~ 2012 report, sales of pantyhose at Selfridges went up by 46 per cent after the royal wedding.

The Brits can't get enough of them.

Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is not a fan.

And THANK GOD for that. It's about time someone liberated the legs of Buckingham Palace.

Meghan Markle is Meghan Markle after all and we have a feeling she's not going to just blindly accept every little royal tradition.

So settle down, corgis - it's all going to be OK.
