Offbeat News: Meghan Markle, Rival Ice Cream Trucks, & More

It only appeared that way because the Duchess never took her coat off. Turns out she wasn’t cold, it’s royal protocol.

According to the OK!, the women of the royal family aren’t allowed to take them off in public as its “unladylike to undress in public.”
