The Queen is said to have a good relationship with Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex is rumoured to be visiting the monarch in Scotland this summer alongside her husband, Prince Harry, and their son, Archie Harrison. A source told the Sun on Sunday: 'The Queen and Prince Philip adore the couple and, of course, their new great-grandson Archie, and they have invited them to Balmoral for a few days.
'It is testament to Meghan that she has been given this invite. It’s a huge honour.'
But according to a new report, the Queen has requested that when Meghan visits the Scottish estate she leaves her ripped jeans and wedges at home.
A royal source claimed to The Sun: 'The Queen is no favourite of jeans so the US boyfriend look and ripped jeans will be left in Frogmore Cottage along with any wedges which her Majesty hates with a passion.'
The source added: 'It has been mentioned that Meghan could well be wearing a few Scottish designers whilst at Balmoral and for church appearances with the Queen.'
The palace reportedly declined to comment.
The Duchess was most recently spotted wearing jeans in July when she attended Wimbledon to support her pal Serena Williams. But according to The Times, Meghan's choice of clothing didn't go down too well with the All England Club members, either.
One source told the newspaper: 'She [Meghan] wanted to come incognito but there were problems.
'They couldn’t invite her into the royal box because she was wearing jeans but that didn’t really matter because all she wanted to do was come and watch Serena.'
Another simply commented: 'She’s not allowed to wear jeans.'
The former Suits star reportedly dresses herself and doesn't have a stylist with her friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin telling CBS: ‘'She doesn’t have a stylist. Everything she wears she picks herself.
'It’s pretty incredible that she can manage all of this.'
Well the fact that you can now study how to dress like Meghan is proof that she not only knows what she's doing when it comes to her putting together a stellar wardrobe but that hoards of people agree and are keen to emulate the Duchess, too.
Sartorial whizz, we say.
