Meghan Markle is already making a name for herself as a style icon, but even the most fashionable royal family members have their critics.

Some people thought the dress the Duchess of Sussex wore during Saturday's Trooping the Colour broke royal protocol with its off-the-shoulder design. And now they think her latest outfit might be a response to the shoulder shaming.

Markle embarked on her first joint engagement with the queen on Thursday wearing a cream dress by Givenchy. It's hard not to notice the cape overlay that extravagantly covers every inch of her shoulders, which some people think it's a pointed reference to those who wanted her to keep covered up. 

This isn't the first time Markle has faced criticism for her outfit choices. Some thought the $75,000 sheer gown she wore for her engagement photos was too modern, and not everyone was a fan of the fit of her Givenchy wedding dress. 

Whether Markle wore her outfit in response to her haters or not, she seemed to be having a great time during her day out with the queen.
