As the world's longest reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth has seen just how much fashion and trends have fluctuated over the years. But one style the 92-year-old is still not sold on? Pantsuits!
This style preference might present a slight snafu in the queen's relationship with Meghan Markle. The new royal has been fond of a good pair of trousers since before she entered the royal sphere -- and even sported a few powersuits during royal outings with Prince Harry during the two's engagement.

Most recently, the Duchess of Sussex opted for the controversial style at the WellChild Awards, where she donned a chic Altuzarra number. While we were fans of the choice, it's been noted that her grandmother-in-law the queen has been particularly outspoken about her sartorial selection.
As noted by People, Her Majesty prefers the ladies in the family to dress up in skirts or dresses -- especially during official royal engagements.
Explained a source to People, Meghan "has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand, like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trouser suits, and is often asking Harry why things have to be done in a certain way."

While Duchess Kate has been known to prefer a dress to pants, she has been pictured in trousers while on the job in the past. Likewise, protocol-pusher Princess Diana was also a fan of the tuxedo look, opting for a nice pantsuit for plenty of royal occasions.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be heading to Australia in the fall for their first royal tour, so we're interested to see how she incorporates these new rules into her style!
