This is the real reason Meghan Markle is always breaking Kate Middleton’s strict clutch bag rule

Meghan Markle has not taken after Kate Middleton in a lot of ways since her relationship with Prince Harry started.


Meghan Markle is only weeks away from becoming part of the royal family, as her wedding to Prince Harry in May draws closer.

Prince William’s soon-to-be sister in law, 36, is already in full swing with her royal duties, attending events with her fiancé, as well as Wills and Kate Middleton.

However, the former Suits actress has been confident in doing things her own way since being welcomed into the family, including going against the Duchess of Cambridge’s clutch bag rule.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother always takes a clutch bag to her royal events, while Meghan has been opting for a selection of different styles – including the Charlotte Elizabeth handbag, or the Strathberry across-the-body bag.

However, there is a reason Meghan can do this, while Kate sticks to her simple clutches.

Myka Meier of Beaumont Etiquette revealed to Good Housekeeping: “The smaller the bag, typically the more formal the occasion or event.”

She continued: “The Duchess of Cambridge attends many more formal events where the clutch would match the occasion and dress code.

“As we see Meghan attending more formal events, we are likely to see her accessorising with more clutches.”

However, the expert also adds that bag choice is also dependant on the person’s tastes.

She said: “This is simply a matter of preference and there is no protocol that dictates what type of handbag royals must wear.”
