While attending the Oceania exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Meghan did something a member of the royal family would never usually do. Holy foreshadowing! Was Meghan hinting at something from the get-go, and we all missed it!?
I'm sure security staff are already mulling over the implications of her impetuous actions - more of this kind of behaviour could result in staff redundancies.
Just like that; as if she were a dirty commoner like the rest of us, rather than a newly-minted member of the British Royal Family.
Footage of the moment quickly appeared on Twitter, and the reaction from some was nothing short of hysterical.More news: Julie Swetnick, new Brett Kavanaugh accuser, comes forward with disturbing affidavit
Meanwhile, The Sun's royal correspondent Emily Andrews tweeted: "A princess who still takes the time to shut her auto door".
She stepped out, and then after shaking hands with her host, casually closed the door behind her. Since she married Prince Harry on May 19, the words "break" and "protocol" have been hurled at Meghan countless times, applied to everything from her outfit choices to her hair styling. The reason for this is said to be to prevent the public from turning their back on the royals.
Victoria Arbiter, 9Honey's royal commentator, perhaps summed it up best in her exasperated tweet.

Etiquette and protocol coach William Hanson told BBC News that Meghan didn't breach the royal protocol.
When the Duchess of Sussex arrived at the event, the auto door was opened, she got out of the vehicle, and shook hands with the hosts before swiftly shutting the auto door.
"I love that she dressed in black so that the kids will really be the stars of the night", wrote one commentator on social media after Meghan and Harry's appearance at the 2018 WellChild Awards earlier this month.
Others gushed that Meghan closing the door proved how "normal" she is. "Usually royalty and dignitaries have someone to open/close auto doors for security reasons: nothing to do with 'princess behavior.' Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit".More news: Why Amber Rose Hopes Bill Cosby 'Doesn't Die in Jail'
