There is one major rule when you go to weddings — don’t wear white. In fact, you shouldn’t even wear any color that looks remotely close to white. Some people on TiKTok seem to think that Kate Middleton broke that rule at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding in May 2018. The Duchess of Cambridge wore one of her favorite items to the wedding — a coat dress. While she wears many, TikTok seems to think that the coat dress was an off-white color.
In photos, the shade of the dress does look oddly close to white. According to Newsweek, Buckingham Palace cleared up the debate, saying Kate’s dress was “primrose yellow,” not white. “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will be wearing a primrose yellow wool silk tailored coat by Alexander McQueen. The Duchess of Cambridge is wearing a hat designed by Philip Treacy and shoes by Jimmy Choo,” the statement read.
While that statement about the color from Buckingham Palace should be enough to end the debate, some TikTok users seem to think the outfit was still disrespectful.
