Taking A Cue From Meghan! Did Kate Middleton Just Break Royal Protocol With Her Most Recent Outfit
Looks like royal sisters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, are starting to share the same fashion taste. But are they also breaking some royal fashion rules?
A controversial neckline?
On Wednesday, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for another solo event and as always, she looked quite stunning. The mom of three was at the Victoria and Albert Museum to check out some of the 800,000 photographs being displayed in the new Photography Centre of the museum.
It's no surprise that Kate is interested in photography. As a photographer herself, she has been known to take a couple of pictures of her little kiddos.
For the museum visit, the Duchess wore an off-the-shoulder fitted tweed dress by Erdem which featured a purple belt and a flared skirt. She blended her look together with a pair of velvet heels and a clutch. Apart from her dress, one other thing that stood out was the hoop earrings from Erdem which she also wore for the occasion.
The Duchess usually prefer understated jewelry but this time around, she rocked her daring jewels proudly.

Did she break protocol like Meghan was once accused of doing?
When the Duchess of Sussex stepped out for her second engagement since marrying Harry, she chose a two-piece Carolina Herrera design which was made in an off-the-shoulder style.
At the time, people felt she had broken an unofficial royal rule that requires the women in the royal family to always cover their shoulders.
I do feel her choice of an off the shoulder dress was pushing it for HRH Queen Elizabeth’s Birthday celebration. I have a feeling she’s going to push the limits a little too much?!— Shari cunningham (@sacunning) June 9, 2018
Meghan is a huge fan of this design. She even chose an off-the-shoulder dress for her wedding. But fans were not having it when she showed up in that blush-colored number for the Trooping The Colour ceremony, some days after her wedding.
Can Meghan Markle for once just follow protocol and not show her shoulders or push the limits?! lol 🤷🏼♀️ #TroopingtheColour2018— Ella Marie (@ella_duse) June 10, 2018
Did it break protocol, no one really knows. But we doubt the royals, including the Queen herself, were that bothered by it. And clearly, Kate Middleton has no qualms about this style of outfit either.
