She may be adored by fans of the royal family but Kensington Palace might not be happy with Meghan Markle at the moment.

The 36-year-old former actress was on her first official royal engagement with Prince Harry this week, visiting Reprezent 107.3FM in London.

And while she may have had thousands of people screaming her name in adoration, it’s believed she broke a major royal rule during the trip.

Pictures from the star and her 33-year-old fiancé flooded the internet, showing Meghan wearing a Symthe ‘Brando’ Coat and a Marks & Spencer jumper.

However, it was her messy bun that may have caused huge upset with the Palace, as apparently, she broke royal protocol with her flyaways.

According to Insider magazine, it’s against royal tradition to have hair in a messy up-do.

The Queen usually wears her a hat to cover her hair during official engagements or has it in a perfect perm style.

Likewise, Kate Middleton is hardly ever spotted out in public with a strand of hair out of place.

If she doesn’t have it professionally curled into loose waves, then the Duchess of Cambridge usually has it expertly coiffed into a chignon.

However, Meghan showed that she’s sure to be the rebel of the royal family when she made her first official outing with Prince Harry, as pieces hair fell down across her face.

People were also quick to notice that she always carried a large handbag instead of the clutch style preferred by Kate Middleton, with royal watchers believing it’s her way of being able to shake hands with the public.
