Meghan Markle's Deep V-Neck Dress Might Break Royal Protocol, but Harry Doesn't Seem to Care

Protocol, shmotocol. We think you're doing great, sweetie.

While it may not actually be written in royal stone, most working royals tend to shy away from anything too revealing, especially for public engagements. But Meghan Markle pushed the envelope a little further today when she stepped out in a sheer Oscar de la Renta midi dress covered in little animals and flowers, featuring a very deep V-neck (at least, by Queen Elizabeth standards).

While Prince Harry didn't seem to, um, mind, we think he may have had a little trouble concentrating on the presentation they were being given. At six months pregnant, the ever-adorable Markle and her low-cut dress are stealing the show (but, like, what's new?).

She wore the dress with a pair of olive green suede slightly slouchy Sarah Flint boots. For the walkabout to greet fans and well-wishers, the duchess covered her sheer dress and bump with a black coat and neck scarf by William Vintage.

The Duke and Duchess made their royal visit to Bristol on Friday amidst a short snow flurry.

Prince Harry and Markle visited the Old Vic, one of the oldest working theaters in the world, and a boxing club and charitable organization called Empire Fighting Chance during their day trip.

"Sorry, what were you saying? I was, er, admiring her dress," said Prince Harry, probably.
