Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has made her first appearance at the Royal Ascot with the Royal Family a month after marrying Prince Harry.

And it appeared she’d already broken a rule that Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton always abides by, as her name badge wasn’t attached to her white dress.

The Duke of Sussex’s wife opted for another Givenchy outfit after choosing the designer for her bridal gown and again for her royal visit to Chester with the Queen.

Meghan, 37, looked stunning in the white ensemble and matching hat with Prince Harry by her side – but the name tag was noticeably missing.

“At Ascot everyone is given a badge, mainly to get them through security,” royal expert Duncan Larcombe told

And it’s a rule Kate Middleton abides by, with the Duchess spotted wearing the badge when she attended last year. 

However, according to, royal historian Marlene Koenig said: “Wearing pins has nothing to do with protocol.

She added: “Protocol is for official, diplomatic, state events, including where you sit, when you enter, etc.”

“Perhaps Meghan did not want to ruin that nice Givenchy dress with a pin hole.”

Other royals also didn’t wear their badges this year.

Royals not wearing them included The Queen and Princess Beatrice..
