The Duchess of Sussex attended her first solo engagement as a royal on Tuesday, stopping by the opening of the Oceania exhibition at Royal Academy of Arts. On arrival, the Duchess chose to close her own door, something some people had never seen a member of the royal family do before. Watch the clip of her shutting the door and the hilarious moments that followed below:

Ahh….now I see the culprit. The protection officer was there & opened the door but the museum guy was there too so PO moved out of the way…& Meghan closed the door. Someone on my feed said PO’s eyes bugged out that she touched the door..so did Harrys! 😉 https://t.co/hO7I1ItEv7

Some people are calling Meghan Markle a rebel for closing a car door herself. Her closing said door also apparently counts as newsworthy. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go walk into the ocean.

Why are people getting so hype over Meghan Markle closing the car door?
