Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are gearing up for their royal tour of Australia and New Zealand this fall and, for Meghan at least, that means planning out a wardrobe for the trip. The couple reportedly hit a snag in their plans when Meghan told Harry she wanted to wear a Stella McCarthy tuxedo for an evening event on the tour.

According to the Daily Mail, Harry nixed the tux, probably because his grandma, Queen Elizabeth II, prefers to see women in dresses and skirts.
“Meghan is being told she needs to stop dressing like a Hollywood star and start dressing like a Royal,” a source from the fashion team at Kensington Palace told the Daily Mail. “Meghan wanted to wear a tuxedo-style suit but Harry said it wasn’t traditional enough.”
Of course, Meghan has worn suits while out with Harry before. In February, she wore an amazing suit to the Endeavour Fund Awards’ Ceremony at Goldsmiths’ Hall in London.
Fingers crossed that Meghan is able to sway the royal family and wear some modern looks during her tour, because now there’s nothing we want to see more than Meghan in a tuxedo.
