Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has been shammed over a thigh-high slit dress she donned recently while taking a walk with her husband, Prince Harry.
The pregnant royalty who is in Australia with Harry rocked a striped thigh-high slit dress with gladiator sandals.
However, in a post from the official Instagram account of Kensington Palace, commenters gave their opinions, with some calling the dress “inappropriate.” Some also questioned why Kensington Palace didn’t include Meghan in its photo roundup.
“Smart of KP not posting the photo of Meghan wearing that summer dress while visiting this forest. So inappropriate for someone representing the Queen,” one person wrote.
Another commenter, who claimed to be a fan of Meghan’s, went so far as to call the dress a harbinger of things to come.
“Things are getting out of control someone should advice [sic] them. She is going to end up as another Fergie who was so popular in the beginning but so unpopular after a few months of mistakes. Look at the other pics. She is holding the dress in order not to open, even her breasts can be seen when she bends to talk to people. Someone needs to protect her. Advice [sic] her.”
Another said, “Everyone is entitled for their bad days also. It happens. Hope she never repeats this again.” one wrote.
And then, of course, there were those who rose to the duchess’s defense, saying, “the heat is your worst nightmare… Did u forget they’re in Australia??? Leave that girl alone. Meghan is here to stay.”
Others claimed the naysayers are “just jealous,” and some even drew comparisons to past outfits worn by other royals, like the late Princess Diana and Meghan’s sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
