Markle is known as a fashionista, and she has even guest designed for a clothing line. But now she’s probably being encouraged to dress modestly as that is expected of all members of the Royal family. She will also have to dress formally, even though it’s not a formal requirement. The Royal protocol officially dictates that women must wear hats to all formal occasions. It’s a requisite that dates back to before the 1950s, when women would cover their hair with hats and rarely showed their hair in public, according to the BBC.

The Duchess of Sussex chose a most fitting fashion label as she attended a Commonwealth Day youth event along with the Duke at Canada House in London in March 2019.
Meghan, who was about seven months pregnant, chose a rich, forest green embroidered coat by Canadian-born, London-based Erdem from his 2019 collection. Meghan, has a close affinity with Canada, having lived in Toronto while filming legal drama Suits for six years and the Duchess has long been a fan of the Montreal-born designer, as have the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Eugenie.
Another interesting rule for the Royal family members is that they are not permitted to wear dark colored nail polish, only brighter colors. The Queen’s favorite color is from the brand Essie called Ballet Slippers, which is the go-to for most members of the British royal family. Meghan wore that color at her wedding, and as we can see in these photos, her nails are always painted with light-colored nail polish. The women of the royal family are expected to wear pantyhose, heels (not wedges), and all dresses and skirts have to be knee length.
