Kate Middleton is already obeying this very strict rule.
The Majesty, who has zero problem with carrying a modern version of classic royal style, must avoid bright or colored nail polish – more specifically, red nail polish is a major no-no. That’s right – you will most likely never ever see Kate wearing this hue, and it seems since Meghan is joining the family (YES THE ENGAGEMENT FINALLY HAPPENED!), her choices of polish will also have to be limited.
*Marie Claire* U.K. states only natural-looking nails are allowed at events, and explained why Queen Elizabeth II has only worn Essie’s Ballet Slippers, since 1989. According to Essie, it’s “the only color Her Majesty would wear.” Hey, we totally get it – it’s one of our favs too!
Meghan Markle has already toned it down, being spotted with only a sheer pink-white shade. We wonder what custom color she plans on creating – either way, we know it’s going to be dope AF, and that Meghan would totally r-e-s-p-e-c-t the rules if it meant keeping it cool with the fam.
