How Meghan Markle dared to break protocol at Queen's birthday parade

What do you think of Meghan's outfit?

It's not unusual for the network to submit major cast members for consideration, according to ET Canada, and the Supporting Actress category is definitely a competitive one (think This Is Us star Chrissy Metz, last year's victor Anne Dowd of The Handmaid's Tale, Stranger Things standout Millie Bobbie Brown and Maisie Williams for Game of Thrones.) The royal's close friend Sarah Rafferty is also being considered for the category.

He added: "She was not as prominent perhaps as some people might have expected, but there's a pecking order". The Duchess of Sussex announced that she would be leaving the show following her November 2017 engagement, and her final scenes - including Rachel and Mike's NY wedding - aired earlier this year.

As the royal family's website reveals, the impressive yearly event involves "Over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians [coming] together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship, and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday". "There was no slight intended, but William being the older, more senior brother would go out [first] with his wife [Duchess Kate]".

"Meghan was still in a good position".

Furthermore, Prince Harry's mother, Princess Diana, was also a big fan of off-the-shoulder dresses back in the '80s and '90s - proving that this is one "rule" that has been broken for decades now, and that the Markle-haters need to do better research before they start comparing her to other royals who have worn even more "scandalous" outfits.

The royal couple have been out making their rounds and they'll be going on tour. On the royal tour menu for the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, is a visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand, reports PEOPLE.

Harry's new influence may well be in evidence on Thursday when the Duchess of Sussex will join the Queen to officially open the new Mersey Gateway Bridge in Cheshire.
