Chloe Madeley’s dress-code fail at Royal Wedding

Didn't she get the memo?

It’s not a wedding without a touch of scandal, whether the bride and groom are plebs or royalty. And causing scandal at Harry and Meghan’s wedding? Chloe Madeley’s shoulders and decolletage.

The etiquette for weddings taking place in a church includes a strict dress code. For women it means ensuring their shoulders are covered, and that they are wearing a hat.

Chloe chose to flout this tradition, baring her shoulders, and a bit of cleavage, in a strappy, pink sundress.

The fitness model, who was attending the wedding with her rugby player fiancé, James Haskell, wore the dress with a matching fascinator, and a tasselled leather belt.

While most weddings in this day and age don’t bother so much with strict adherence to etiquette, a royal wedding still has to play by at least some of the rules.

Chloe seemed unaware of the slip, but many on Twitter were not, with many viewers tweeting their shock at her attire.

“Chloe Madeley takes top prize for the most tasteless and unsuitable outfit for a Church wedding. Not just awful. A bit rude,” one viewer tweeted.

“Dress is specified on the invitation to the #RoyalWedding. Sleeveless is ok but arms should be covered in Church, modest décolletage, knee length or below. Who is this chick? 👎🏼,” said another.

Another royal wedding fan went as far as tagging in Chloe’s dad, Richard Madeley, saying: “Chloe Madeley was so inappropriately dressed today. What was she thinking? She let herself down and Harry and Meghan.”

But not everyone was ready to give sway to the traditional dress code for the royal wedding – with some fans tweeting that Chloe’s outfit was fine.

“Not really sure what the fuss was about Chloe Madeley. a) I don’t think she is actually braless b) she’s flashing nothing – saw more of a cleavage among guests c) you see more revealing outfits at weddings all the time. Yes, ok, shoulders uncovered, but honestly? Why shame her?”
