Even though the members of the British royal family are supposed to adhere to strict royal rules and protocol, that doesn't mean they always do so. While on her royal tour of Africa with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle reportedly broke a style rule and they have both gone against tradition thanks to the content in their new documentary, "Meghan & Harry: An African Journey."

Now, the Duchess of Sussex has forged her own path yet again.

According to New Idea, the former "Suits" actress attended the One Young World Summit in London on Tuesday where she took to the stage in order to greet co-founder Kate Robertson. Per the publication, Meghan has known Robertson for years due to her work with the organization.

As Robertson approached her, Meghan reached out her arms for a hug. However, the co-founder instead went to curtsy. After the fumble, both women hugged and laughed at what had just occurred. Now, some are debating whether or not the interaction actually broke royal rules or was just bad timing.

"With royal protocol, it's most respectful to wait until the royal extends a handshake, touch or a hug, and you follow their lead," "Modern Etiquette Made Easy" author Myka Meier recently told People.

Continuing, she said, "While although Meghan was initially greeted with a curtsy, which would have been a respectful way to greet a member of the royal family in this situation, it's clear Meghan was trying to show warmth through her offer to hug as a greeting." She then stated that the interaction was "perfectly fine" and "a matter of missed timing."

Aside from the unusual greeting, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have continued to make headlines for other reasons. The royal couple recently hired a surprising person after splitting from The Royal Foundation and have reportedly been considering moving away from the U.K. full-time.
