Meghan Markle has reportedly been banned from wearing a particular fashion item during her and Prince Harry’s upcoming tour Down Under.

Clearly, being a Prince and her husband means Harry gets a say when it comes to fashion rules Meg has to follow.

So what has Meghan been told not to wear?

A tuxedo.

To many, a tuxedo on a female may be an unconventional outfit choice anyway, but given Meghan’s love of suits and the fact she’s sported a tux before, they clearly felt it necessary to highlight their preferences to Meg.

And as Harry is reportedly not a big fan of suits on women, it’s claimed he’s told her not to pack her tux as it’s not traditional enough.

According to the Daily Mail, a source from a fashion meeting at Kensington Palace 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.’

Back in February this year, Meghan ffamously wore a black and white tux – which featured a loose white bow tie – for the Endeavour Fund Awards at Goldsmiths Hall in London.

The £1,245 Alexander McQueen feminine tuxedo was teamed with a £285 white shirt by Tuxe that featured the large bow detail around the neckline.

And during the Sussexes’ recent trip to Ireland, she was seen wearing a smart Givenchy suit.

Diana was also a fan of a feminine tux, having worn one to Wembley Stadium in 1988, which featured a bright green waistcoat and XX bow tie.

She also wore a white tux with a classic black bow tie when she visited Florence duirng a British royal tour of Italy in 1985.

Meghan and Harry’s Australia tour will kick off in October.
