People Are Losing It Over Coat Meghan Markle Just Wore To Her First Royal Engagement

Soon-to-be Princess Meghan Markle made a a dazzling debut on the world stage this week.

Prince Harry and his fiancée made their first official appearance together in the UK, meeting a community that is “very special” to the Prince. The couple did their inaugural royal walkabout through Nottingham, then attended a World AIDS Day event.

Markle charmed people with her glowing smile and warm enthusiasm — and her chic coat:

Later, they visited the Nottingham academy, where they watched young actors perform an improvised play about a “fictional” young couple going public with their secret romance. One of the actors, 19-year-old Taynika Jarrett-Bennett, said, “We wanted to make it a fun play and involve the royals.”

And Markle won over the cast when she complimented their performance.

And so a new royal chapter begins. We think Princess Diana would be proud.

As Twitter Becomes Obsessed With Meghan Markle's 'Suitability,' J.K. Rowling Shuts It All Down

As the news of Prince Harry’s engagement to actress and entrepreneur Meghan Markle has spread, so have discussions about Markle’s “suitability” as a partner for Harry.

While most agree the entire conversation is distasteful and only Harry can decide who is or is not suitable for him, that didn’t stop conservative British newspaper The Spectator from weighing in on Twitter.

For those not in-the-know, “CofE” is short for the Church of England and, according to tradition, the reigning monarch of England is also the head of the Church. In this case, of course, that would be Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

But the notion that Markle is somehow “unsuitable” because she has been divorced struck people as a bit off, especially considering the history of the Church of England itself.

I mean…

History buffs weren’t the only ones with questions…

Even J.K. Rowling got in on the discussion, shuttingThe Spectator‘s assertion down with a single hashtag:

And Twitter was so here for it…

We wish Meghan and Harry all the best in their union!
