However, the Duchess sent social media into meltdown after she was captured closing her own auto door as she arrived at the event.
But some royal watchers reckon that Meghan is purposefully choosing black ensembles in a bid to stay out of the limelight.
Meghan, who looked stunning in a black Givenchy dress, attended the opening of an exhibition of works from the Oceania region at the Royal Academy of Arts on Tuesday. Good thing she has arms and is able to close the door!
"Meghan Markle leaves people in shock as she shuts own CAR DOOR on first solo engagement", the Express reported.
William Hanson, an etiquette and protocol coach, tweeted that the door close was not a protocol breach.
Arriving at the Royal Academy of Arts, Meghan, 37, stepped out of the auto - after having the door opened for her by, presumably, a royal minder - and greeted her host.
Whether her security is quicker to shut the door for her after this remains to be seen.
Despite the hoopla, the newly minted royal has closed her own door before.
A third tweeted: "Meghan closes the door to the vehicle she got out from and it is sparking a debate that she might be breaking protocol wooooooooow". Her husband, Prince Harry and her mother Doria Ragland were also in attendance.
