The Royal family is always full of 'oh-so-complicated' protocol rules, and royal members must follow (let's return to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's breaking rules list later). 

Some old traditions are still in play, such as obligatory nude pantyhose, hats on official duties, no flashy nail polish, 'glued' coats (no excuse for taking them off), and many other 'absolute must' royal customs.

It's funny to read about old rules when the late Princess Diana, then Kate Middleton, and now Meghan Markle are so successfully upgrading their fashion styles a bit further from oldie-goldie things. 

Ah, navy blue!

Meghan and Kate are often seen wearing the same color range, navy blue. What does it say that the Duchess of Sussex wore eight navy blue outfits during the Commonwealth Tour. Is it sort of a fashion thing nowadays?

Experts spilled the beans about the real reason for that: navy requires one to be professional and approachable, in the same breath.

Karen Haller, the UK’s leading Applied Colour Psychology Specialist, claimed

When it comes to the psychology of color, blue relates to the mind. Darker blues relate to trust, logic, and knowledge. It communicates duty and professionalism and given it’s a more approachable color than black.

You see, both Duchesses want to show that they are more than Princes' wives. Kate and Meghan wish to give the impression of being professional, intelligent, and confident females, while fulfilling their official functions.

Hello, Lady Di 

It's no wonder that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle often pay touching and subtle tributes to their late mother-in-law through fashion and jewelry choices.

For instance, Kate Middleton wore a knee-length red dress with white after giving birth to her second son, Prince Louis, in April. The Princess of Wales did the same when she had her second son, Prince Harry.

Meghan followed Lady Di's style tips, too. In February, the Duchess wore a blue-and-green plaid coat which was nearly the exact look that Princess Diana wore in 1987.
