Meghan Markle increases ASOS sales by 129% – but is she breaking royal protocols?


MEGHAN MARKLE has certainly had a huge impact on fashion – even with ASOS sales.

Since Meghan Markle tied the knot to Prince Harry in May, everyone has been keeping an eye on her fashion.

The 37-year-old has become a huge style icon, with millions all over the world copying her look every time she steps out. 

In fact, UK experts Brand Finance even predicted the “uplift” for clothing branding before she joined the Royal Family and dubbed it as the “Meghan Effect”.

And now, according to a spokesperson for ASOS the Duchess of Sussex has played a huge part in their 129% increase in sales. 

But could she be breaking royal protocols along the way?

As it’s royal tradition to avoid wearing trousers, Meghan has pushed the boundaries of the traditional wardrobe. 

ASOS has seen an increase in their tailored clothing – which is an item the Duchess must avoid in public, as she’s not allowed to wear trousers. 

But this hasn’t stopped her as she’s previously arrived at the WellChild Awards in a chic black suit. 

And earlier this year, the former US actress wore another chic suit during a royal function with her husband Harry.

“Meghan is being told she needs to stop dressing like a Hollywood star”

Even though the royal is often pictured wearing trousers, it is apparently unacceptable. 

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, in July, an insider said: “Meghan is being told she needs to stop dressing like a Hollywood star and start dressing like a Royal.

“Meghan wanted to wear a tuxedo-style suit but Harry said it wasn’t traditional enough.”

Another fashion rule that the Royal Family must follow is avoiding colourful nail polish. 

Royals including Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge wear subtle pinks or clear polish when on official business. 

It is believed Her Majesty has been wearing Essie’s “Ballet Slippers” shade for 28 years.
