Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, made headlines when a recent wardrobe malfunction was captured on camera. Some netizens are saying it was a deliberate act.


Meghan attended Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks' wedding, longtime friends of Prince Harry when a blouse button on her Club Monaco dress became undone!

She was waving to the crowds gathered outside the chapel, giving a clear view of the black lace camisole she was wearing underneath. Read more about the wedding on our Twitter, @amomama_usa.

While wardrobe accidents ever so often some netizens are saying that the duchess's faux pax was deliberate. Scroll down to see some of there reactions.


Despite the media frenzy caused by one undone button, etiquette expert Myka Meier told People that Meghan didn't know Royal protocol. She explained:

"Accidents or wardrobe malfunctions are not considered going against dress code rules."

She added that it's only breaking protocol if a person shows a "blatant disregard" for the rules set in place as a means to show respect.

Meier believes that Meghan didn't do it deliberately because she immediately buttoned the dress back up when she realized what had happened. But Twitter users disagree.


A user known as Joy Musa criticized Meghan for wearing black, "like someone attending a funeral," and added that the "deliberately [flaunted] her bra for the camera."

Musa also said that Meghan "stole the show" with the wardrobe malfunction, diverting the attention away from the 27-year-old bride and 30-year-old groom.

Darlene Foster wrote, "I see London, I see France, I see Meghan's... well not underpants but just as embarrassing a moment."


In her defense, Foster wrote that Meghan wore a lovely bra, at least, while Stylist Magazine reminded their readers that yes, just like millions of women from across the globe, Meghan also wears a bra.

Meghan isn't the only Royal prone to wardrobe malfunction. The Duchess of Cambridge battle a strong gust of wind while visiting India two years ago.

It has since been dubbed as her Monroe moment. Read more about the duchess's controversial outfits here.
