Did Meghan Markle just goes braless for her maiden event in London?

However, the Duchess sent social media into meltdown after she was captured closing her own auto door as she arrived at the event.

Last night, the Duchess stepped out for her first solo public function, which was held at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

Meghan made a name for herself as Rachel Zane on USA series Suits, which is still airing on Netflix, but does the new-found royal still keep up with the programme that earned her fame?

Another wrote: "First time I've seen an on-duty princess shut her own vehicle door..."

Since then, Meghan has reportedly had no contact with her father.

But contrary to what some have been claiming, Meghan wasn't the first royal to shut her own auto door.

Then again, the human is no regular Joe or Jane: we're talking about Megan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, the former "Suits" actress who became the latest member of the British Royal family after marrying Prince Harry.

But the Trump Administration has said that sanctions should stay in place until North Korea denuclearises. Nevertheless, Trump cheered his summit, claiming that North Korea "no longer" posed a nuclear threat.

She then shook hands with one of her hosts before shutting the auto door behind her. In addition to staying in England to look after the little ones, the Duchess of Cambridge has a royal engagement next week.

Others however, were utterly stunned that Meghan closing a vehicle door was making news.

As you might imagine, there are a lot of cynics on Twitter enjoying the "woman closes own auto door" spectacle and weighing in with their own amusing takes.

The question is, will the rest of the Royal brood follow Markle's lead?

The royal pair will head to the other side of Sussex to take part in youth driven activities and see some sites.

Joking aside, the prince said to reception guests, "I am only sorry that my wife Catherine is not able to join me" and added that his wife was "immensely jealous" that she wasn't with him. "This is nearly twice the 26 per cent who think she should dedicate herself to Royal duties".

"I think she did it as a normal action to close a vehicle door".
