The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here as we all have been busting with excitement for the day that Prince Harry married Meaghan Markle. Idris Elba and his fiancée Sabrina Dhowre were among the guests lucky enough to be invited to St. George’s Chapel to witness the royal wedding. While Elba is not close friends with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, he does have an important connection to the royal family. A charity started by Harry’s father, Prince Charles, literally changed Elba’s life and helped him become the actor he is today.
Not just anyone cant attend the royal wedding, so it’s important to follow proper protocol in terms of attire if you’re fortunate enough to be on the guest list. On the day of the event, social media dragged Dhowre for her poor choice of attire.
Fans Disapprove Of Idris Elba’s Fiancée’s Royal Wedding Attire:
It’s not hard to think about what to wear to a wedding. However, when it comes to royal wedding dress code, there are a few strict rules that every guest MUST follow. It appears that Idris Elba’s fiancée, Sabrina Dhowre missed that memo. According to Brides.com, the rule of thumb for royal wedding attire includes a uniform or morning coat or lounge suit for men as well as ladies should wear a day dress with a hat.
Wearing a hat is customary for ladies and Dhowre met that requirement. However, her hat was a dark color and it didn’t seem to necessarily match her outfit. Most of the guests, including Oprah Winfrey, donned pale or bright colors with light fabrics such as silk or linen, paired with well-thought-out accessories. E! Chief News Correspondent and royal expert, Melanie Bromley, shared that women should wear dresses that are knee length or longer. Additionally, Bromley stated that women should take a chapter out of the Queen’s book as they should dress formally and in bright colors.
The Queen always dresses in bright colors, it’s how she ensures she can be seen when there are huge crowds of people who have turned up to see her, Bromley said. Wearing something colorful and tailored is a surefire way to please the many cameras that will be not only on the couple but on their guests. It doesn’t matter how unknown or known the guest is, everyone will be subjected to being broadcast to millions of people around the world as they enter the chapel, added Bromley.
As Dhowre held her future husband’s hand, her knees began to buckle as she has noticeably gained weight. Some social media followers commented that Sabrina Dhowre gained happy weight or that she may possibly be expecting. As Bromley mentioned, everyone’s attire was up for scrutiny as Dhowre was no exception.
That outfit is a bit tacky, Gucci print everything 😒

Well, while Dhowre didn’t hit the mark with her attire, at least she remembered to smile.
