Meghan Markle Performs First Solo Royal Engagement Without Prince Harry

MEGHAN-MARKLE

Watch out - we've got a rebel over here.

The exhibition, which marks the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy, celebrates the art of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia, and the Pacific region, including New Guinea, Easter Island, Hawaii and New Zealand. After shaking his hand, Markle then closed the door by herself.

Many Twitter users praised Meghan for being "down to earth", with one revealing they'd never seen a member of the royal family shut their own auto door before.

Footage of the moment quickly appeared on Twitter, and the reaction from some was nothing short of hysterical.

Markle first made waves after her wedding, and on the way to the post-ceremony reception, when she reached over to make sure Prince Harry's door was unlocked while they were getting into their convertible.

Ah, yes - everyone loves a royal rebel ignoring the rule book.

Irrespective, Meghan confidently walked into the art gallery even without Prince Harry, who usually accompanies her to social events, according to HollywoodLife.

"First time I've seen an on-duty princess shut her own vehicle door", journalist Christopher Wilson reacted on Twitter.

Victoria Arbiter, 9Honey's royal commentator, perhaps summed it up best in her exasperated tweet.

"A princess who still takes the time to shut her auto door. Vehicle door shutting does not fall under protocol!"

Despite most people assuming door shutting just wasn't something royals were supposed to do, etiquette and protocol coach William Hanson insisted there were actually no rules in place.

Of course, for most of us, closing a auto door is no big deal.

Earlier this month, Samatha went so far as to give her sister a new nickname, branding the Duchess of Sussex a "DuchASS" in a scathing online attack.

A woman has closed her own auto door - making headlines globally.

Others however, were utterly stunned that Meghan closing a auto door was making news.
