Duchess Meghan appears to be set on breaking many Royal protocols now more than ever. She was recently seen at the Trooping the Colour event where she wore a short-sleeved dress.

Royal women usually wear long-sleeved dresses for their outings. However, on Friday, the Duchess of Sussex opted for a dress that showed off her arms according to The Sun.

Duchess Meghan, 36, went for a custom-made pale pink Carolina Herrera dress on Saturday at Trooping the Colour. The dress featured a midi hemline, three flat, round buttons and a folded, off-the-shoulder neckline.

The former actress is a fan of the off-the-shoulder look. She even incorporated it into her Royal wedding dress last month.

Duchess Meghan’s look was completed with a matching Philip Treacy hat. Her short sleeve dress is a break from tradition, as the women of the Royal Family typically wear long sleeved dresses at the event.

For example, Duchess Kate has always worn a sleeve that comes past the elbow since making her Trooping debut in 2011. In 1981, Princess Diana also never wore a short-sleeved look to the official celebration of the Queen’s birthday.

Meghan has been breaking protocol for a while now. In November last year, she didn’t wear nude pantyhose to her engagement photo call.

She’s also gone with her signature messy bun during numerous engagements. During a visit to Cardiff Castle in Wales, Meghan gave a 10-year-old girl an autograph.

The Duchess only followed the pantyhose rule when she attended her first engagement as a Royal last month. For Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebration Meghan also wore a similar shade to her Trooping the Colour dress.

During the ceremony at Buckingham Palace, the Duchess wore a rose-pink ‘Flavia’ silk-crepe pencil dress by British fashion label Goat. There she completed her look with pantyhose, a matching saucer-style fascinator and blush ‘Siren’ pumps by Tamara Mellon.
