Would you give up all of your open-toe shoes and strapless silhouettes to be a princess?

Of course, you would! But, it wouldn't be easy. 

Since Meghan Markle found her prince charming, better known as Prince Harry, she's shifted her style to mirror the sophistication of Kate Middleton and other royals. In our minds, we imagine the former American actress being greeted by an etiquette coach at the palace who carefully yet sternly went through the dos and don'ts of royal fashion—"When walking in a crowd, one is under scrutiny all the time," the coach would say.

OK, that's actually quote from Princess Diaries, but Meghan's experience has to be similar, right?

While we love the princess-to-be's button-down dress, her trench coat-inspired dress is an elevated version of the style.

On occasion, you may see Meghan in a sleeveless dress. However, off-shoulder silhouettes are typically avoided by royals. You're more likely to clothing draped over the shoulders, than to see them bare.
