Royal visit is ‘exciting’ for Bognor

Meghan Markle hasn't let her royal status go to her head, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex causing a stir on social media after she did something that commoners do every day - close a auto door.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended the Coach Core Awards on Monday, and the Duchess of Sussex made her first solo royal appearance at the Royal Academy of Arts on Tuesday.

After getting out of the auto and shaking hands with one of the hosts, the duchess casually shut the door and went inside, writes People magazine.

One disbelieving user wrote: "Meghan closing her own vehicle door is iconic". Her Majesty The Queen granted Prince Harry and Meghan the Dukedom of Sussex on their wedding day in May.

The move is a subtle break in protocol for a royal but it's not the first time she has closed a vehicle door.

A third tweeted: "Meghan closes the door to the vehicle she got out from and it is sparking a debate that she might be breaking protocol wooooooooow".

The man in a tuxedo who welcomed her with a warm handshake and appeared to be preparing to close the door quickly swiped his hand over his mouth the moment Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, closed the door behind her back without looking.

"I think that is a very, very unsafe standard for our country". "At that point I felt that enough is enough", Ford said. Judge denied the allegations in a statement from his attorney submitted to the committee.

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

"When Meghan Markle closes her vehicle door she gets called humble and relatable, but when I do it I'm "slamming the door too hard", another wrote. "Well done Meghan!" tweeted the royal correspondent for the Sun, Emily Andrews, seemingly impressed.

Thousands on social media marvelled at the Duchess's "humble", "down to earth" nature, while others complained how unfair it is that though they open and close a variety of doors on a daily basis, nobody seems to care.

"Meghan clearly just shut the door out of force of habit".

He said: "I was staggered by the beauty and sheer remoteness of this incredible landscape. This is nearly twice the 26 per cent who think she should dedicate herself to Royal duties".

The Duchess of Sussex practised a hongi, the traditional greeting of New Zeland's Mãori people, ahead of her and the Duke's royal tour next month.
