Meghan Markle Had The Cheek To Show Her Shoulders At A Royal Engagement
Sorry, what year is it? Last time we checked, we were fairly certain it was 2018.
But here we are again, telling a woman off because she had the cheek to flash a bit of shoulder at a birthday party.
Meghan Markle, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, has come under criticism for wearing an off-shoulder dress at Trooping The Colour on Saturday.
It's a 250-year-old tradition that sees military troops march through Buckingham Palace square with their flags.
Meghan went for a pink off-the-shoulder dress by designer Carolina Herrera, a favourite of Michelle Obama and Jackie Onassis.
Some people were not pleased with her choice, and they were quite happy to tell Twitter all about it.
"Off the shoulder is inappropriate day wear at the Trooping or any official engagement," one user wrote.

Another said: "I do feel her choice of an off the shoulder dress was pushing it for HRH Queen Elizabeth's Birthday celebration. I have a feeling she's going to push the limits a little too much?!"
The Sun reported that "fashion tradition usually dictates that royal women do not wear off-shoulder or other more revealing styles."
Go on Meghan, you little rule-breaker.
For every person acting like a complete bore on Twitter, there was another defending the Duchess.
One user tweeted: "I think she looked gorgeous. Young, vibrant and chic."
"Who is the keeper of this rule book that you people keep talking about?" said another.
Someone else shared a series of photos of Kate Middleton, Princess Diana and The Queen all also baring their shoulders, saying, "Let's not crap on Meghan okay?"
And when drawing comparisons to other royals, she seems to be following in the footsteps of Diana. One user tweeted: "She's a beautiful woman. She's breaking so many barriers and I love that! While I respect the Royal Family and its protocol, it's so refreshing to have someone bring change to it. It's long overdue. Meghan reminds me of Diana more than Kate. She's ready to get to work!!!"
Off you go then, Meg. You do you. Get to work.
