Now that Meghan Markle is a casual member of the royal family, she can no longer sit with crossed legs like the rest of us.
Nope, from now on Meghan’s life in chairs will involve “the Duchess slant,” a move popularized by Kate Middleton that involves crossing legs below the knee and then slanting them to the side.
But Meghan momentarily forgot the Duchess Slant during a party at Buckingham Palace, and the exact moment she crossed her legs and then realized she’d made a “mistake” was caught on camera.
Honestly, props to Meghan for effortlessly switching from that leg cross to the Duchess Slant. This whole “how royal women sit” thing seems like pretty dated protocol, but clearly Meghan’s killing it nonetheless.
