Meghan Markle Doesn't Remove Price Tag of Her Dress on Royal Visit, Internet has Field Day

Tonga is the only sovereign constitutional monarchy in Oceania that retains its own royal family, while the region's other constitutional monarchies, like Australia and New Zealand, recognise Britain's Queen Elizabeth as their head of state.

A Tongan princess welcomed Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan on Thursday when they arrived in the tiny South Pacific nation, before driving into the capital as thousands of schoolchildren cheered and waved flags along the way.

Princess Lātūfuipeka Tukuʻaho, the eldest daughter of King Tupou, shook hands and curtseyed to greet Harry, clad in a beige linen suit, and Meghan, who wore a long-sleeved red dress in the colour of the Tongan flag, with a label visible at the hem.

"How do we love thee, Meghan? Oh let us count the ways," said one Twitter user, Talita Kefu of San Mateo in California, in a message on the social network.

"Thank you for donning our national colors."

Dancers in woven skirts and necklaces crafted from red flowers and feathers in their hair sang and clapped to welcome the royal couple to the Polynesian kingdom, made up of 170 mostly uninhabited islands. Red-and-white balloons and streamers dotted the route of their motorcade into Nuku'alofa, the capital, while schoolchildren in red and white uniforms waved small plastic British and Tongan flags and cheered excitedly.

However, the most attention was garnered by a small slip of paper. Meghan's stylist apparently forgot to remove the price tag of her red dress, and the internet was quick to notice and thereafter, natually, comment.
