1. No coloured nail polish

Women of the royal family, particularly The Queen, Kate Middleton and now Meghan Markle, are not allowed to wear colourful nail polish. Only neutral shades such as nude and taupe are allowed.

FYI: The Queen’s favourite nail polish shade is Essie’s Ballet Slippers, which Meghan wore on her big day.

2. Not just anyone can wear a tiara
