Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been under the radar ever since they began dating in October 2016, so when the pair stepped out for the first time in public at last Monday’s 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, it got everyone excited.
The couple was all smiles for their first time being photographed together, making us feel warm and fuzzy inside. However, some focused on the casual outfit Markle was wearing: ripped blue jeans and a while button-up top with rolled-up sleeves.
The 36-year-old Suits actress looked appropriate for a sporting event, but internet trolls still criticized her for wearing something casual with a royal family member (despite Prince Harry wearing an outfit in the same level of casualness).
Here are what some users shared:
“Kate Middleton has not only never worn ripped jeans, she doesn’t understand the question.” https://t.co/ndvzraE8R2— Becca Skoch (@RebeccaSkoch) September 25, 2017
This definitely proved to be unfair for Markle, who still looked fabulous and confident in what she was wearing. The fact that trolls totally ignored Prince Harry’s outfit choice comes off as somewhat sexist. Whatever the adorable pair decides to wear, what really matters is that they are happy with each other’s company.
