'Down to earth' Meghan closes her own vehicle door

Duke and Duchess of Sussex coming to Brighton

Duke and Duchess of Sussex coming to Brighton

The truly earth-shattering gesture occurred during the Duchess of Sussex's first solo royal engagement on Tuesday evening, when she attended the opening of an exhibition in London.

Immediately, the Sun's Royal Correspondent was congratulating the Duchess for showing she could still "take the time" for these simple little tasks.

"Samantha is kidding herself if she thinks there is any possibility of getting together with Meghan or anyone from the royal family for that matter".

"She is such a cool Duchess", one fan marveled, with another writing, "My heroine 3".

However, the Duchess sent social media into meltdown after she was captured closing her own auto door as she arrived at the event.

I'd Prefer To Keep Rosenstein, May Delay Planned Meeting On His Fate
Rosenstein appointed Mueller in May 2017, oversees his work and has repeatedly defended the breadth and scope of the probe. Even if Rosenstein survives the week, it's not clear how much longer he'll be around.

For what it's worth, Meghan's sister-in-law Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has also closed her own vehicle doors during public appearances. She knows it's much more efficient to just shut the damn door and move on.

On Tuesday evening the Duchess of Sussex provoked commentary on social media through doing something most of us do every day - closing her vehicle door.

And social media went utterly wild. The Suits actress worked with UN Women and advocated for girls around the world through her contributions to World Vision Canada.

"In an article about Markle's move to close her own vehicle doors, People magazine reported", Markle, who identifies herself as a feminist on the Kensington Palace website, has always been a proponent of gender equality. Meghan wants other women to feel comfortable and be themselves, not conform to hackneyed stereotypes, but she needs to lead by real example, not auto door handle moments.

However despite those clams, it seems Meghan won't be having a bar of it, and has no intention of meeting her older sister - especially since Samatha started slinging insults towards her and the royal family. I find it's easier to be modern when wearing a £2500 Givenchy dress and channelling Audrey Hepburn, although it's not a look I plan to emulate on the London Underground any time soon.
