The British Fashion Awards is always a night to remember. Whether it be for the amazing garments or the celebrity appearances, it always ends up in the news. This year the glamorous event’s biggest happening was not a new garment or a celebrity appearance; it was Meghan Markle’s arrival to the event featuring dark nail polish. Now, most people will probably think “So what? She work dark polish. Let the woman live. What’s the big deal?” I’ll tell you what the big deal is: Queen Elizabeth II, the current reigning Queen of England has always worn only light nude polish, and naturally, all royals have followed. This could be seen as simply a brief oversight on Meghan’s part, but there could be a different reason behind Markle's choice in wearing the dark polish. We all know that Meghan Markle married prince Harry on May 19, but what you may not know is that she was previously married to another man. This would make Meghan a divorcée, and divorcées are not the Royal Family’s favorite crowd. If we look back to 1937 to when former King Edward VIII was king, we see it was decided that if the King wanted to marry Wallis Simpson, an American socialite and, you guessed it, divorcée, he would have to give up the throne. This past history has fueled rumors that the queen isn’t very fond of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. This makes people think that the Duchess is being rebellious for the sake of proving to the queen that she cannot be controlled by the “Royal Rules.” While this probably isn’t true, it’s still fun to imagine a bit of rebellion within the Royal Family.
