Meghan Markle shock: Did Meghan and Harry break protocol in Prince Louis christening pic?
MEGHAN Markle’s body language in one of Prince Louis’ official christening photos has caused raised eyebrows for being inappropriate for the occasion – but did she break royal protocol?
Meghan, dressed in an olive green Ralph Lauren dress, looked at ease in a large family shot next to Prince Harry and her royal relatives.
But in the fourth formal image, a seemingly too relaxed Meghan can be seen linked her arm through her husband’s – something normally seen as a no-no.
Did Meghan and Harry break protocol in Prince Louis christening photo?
No protocol exists saying members of the Royal Family can not be tactile with one another for photographs or while out in public.
Therefore Meghan has probably not breached any actual restriction – the photo was also released by Kensington Palace so unlikely to have been done so if feathers had been truly ruffled.
However, many royal couples rarely touch one another in photos and public displays of affection are believed to be an unwritten royal protocol.
While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge show occasional signs of intimacy, Harry and Meghan have captured the public’s imagination over the last year with their frequent touchy-feely displays.
During their royal tours, the couple have looked inseparable and often hold hands or physically place a hand on each other.
