Meghan Markle Performs First Solo Royal Engagement Without Prince Harry

Anarchy

But it wasn't the absence of her fiery-haired husband at the exhibition that set tongues wagging, but the fact that the Duchess was captured closing her own auto door upon arrival.

Another tweeted: " She closes her own door.

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.

Arriving for her first solo engagement at the Royal Academy of Arts last night, Meghan, 37, nearly managed to upstage herself - simply by not waiting for someone to close the door after she alighted from her auto.

She stepped out, and then after shaking hands with her host, casually closed the door behind her.

Just like that; as if she were a dirty commoner like the rest of us, rather than a newly-minted member of the British Royal Family. Visiting the Oceania exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Arts, the Duchess made waves within seconds of arriving with the gesture.

Another added: "She is still used to doing certain things like closing her own door".

At the time, some armchair experts who were quick to take to the internet to pass on their views on Meghan's breach of "royal etiquette".

Of course, for most of us, closing a vehicle door is no big deal.

Whether her security is quicker to shut the door for her after this remains to be seen.

Fans on social media couldn't get enough of Meghan's latest move, calling the 36-year-old royal "humble" and "down to earth". Her husband, Prince Harry and her mother Doria Ragland were also in attendance.
