'Down to earth' Meghan closes her own vehicle door

'Down to earth' Meghan closes her own vehicle door

The Duchess of Sussex attended her first solo engagement at the Royal Academy of Arts in London on Tuesday.

In new clip, Twitter users felt that Meghan was "losing" her American accent.

Whether the gesture was planned or not, it worked wonders on people observing it on social media.

This might not seem like much for us regular folks who open and close doors all on our own (yay for us!), but this is unheard of with members of the British Royal family.

But it wasn't the absence of her fiery-haired husband at the exhibition that set tongues wagging, but the fact that the Duchess was captured closing her own auto door upon arrival.

Meghan doesn't just close auto doors with her own hands - she waves with them, too!

Harry and Meghan will finally visit their dukedom next week when the couple embark on a short tour of Sussex.


Meghan said as she took a look at her dress. "Well done Meghan!", tweeted royal correspondent Emily Andrews.

"I really don't think it occurs to her that someone else is there to do that", wrote another.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a very exciting date in the diary.

"A princess who still takes the time to shut her auto door", Emily Andrews, the royal correspondent for The Sun tabloid, tweeted.

"Usually royalty and dignitaries have someone to open/close auto doors for security reasons: nothing to do with "princess behaviour", tweeted William Hanson, an etiquette coach and columnist for the Daily Mail's website.

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.

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