Meghan Markle’s fans and followers found themselves in an uproar as they accused Princess Kate of "breaking royal protocol."
Meghan Markle's supporters expressed concern over the Princess of Wales' recent hairstyle choice, which they deemed as a departure from established protocol.
Princess Kate was spotted wearing the Zara blazer piece for a royal engagement at the Orchards Centre in Kent where she met children with special education assistance.
On Wednesday, Princess Kate sported a low bun with side bangs framing her face, a style frequently seen on Meghan Markle during her tenure as a working royal, including her wedding day in 2018 when she married Prince Harry.
During the Duchess of Sussex's time as a working royal, her "messy bun" hairstyle drew criticism from some royal enthusiasts for supposedly violating protocol.
fans of Meghan took to social media on Wednesday to voice their disapproval of Kate's adoption of a similar hairstyle.
Meanwhile, supporters of the Princess of Wales praised her elegant new look.
One fan commented: "Before Meghan, the messy bun was breaking protocol. Meghan's protocol breaches opened the door for Kate Middleton to follow. Kate copied Meghan’s messy bun."
Another added, “She weaponises protocol against Meghan Markle to later steal her whole style and persona.”
The third remarked, “Kate desperately trying to duplicate Meghan's natural style. Trouser suits, casual bun, what a fake. Cannot compare to Meghan at all.”
However, Kate’s royal fans came forward to show their support. One posted a snapshot of Princes of Wales tying her lock in a beautiful bun at the 2015 premiere of Spectre on X (former Twitter).
They penned the caption along the post, "Friendly reminder to the usual derangers out there: Catherine chose to style her hair like this in 2015 too, when she attended the premiere of the new James Bond movie Spectre.
