Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement last year, the Internet has been especially cruel to the new Duchess. When they're not ripping her apart for not following "royal protocol," they're critiquing her fashion choices, nitpicking her hair, and pointing out how she still isn't "royal material."
But this obsession with pointing out everything Meghan does wrong is not only silly, it's not even true. That so-called "royal handbook" of archaic fashion rules doesn't even exist. "The phrase 'in a break with protocol' really needs to be reined in," royal expert Victoria Arbiter wrote on Twitter. "There is no royal fashion police, Meghan is not breaking any rules and if common sense prevails, it should be clear that Harry is there to guide her 100 percent."
So if there is no "royal protocol," why are her critics so angry? Below, a collection of their dumbest reasons.
