Considering the nature of the Wimbledon club, its not surprising they have a dress code. I'm sure Americans would have clubs where there are dress codes.

Mostly, everyone is missing the point. She was not banned. She broke Wimbledon etiquette.

The same etiquette that insists that players wear white and helps make Wimbledon what it is, the #1 tournament in the world.

Wimbledon is a private club and has every right to have dress standards in its membersí area. The members decide that, not the public.

Some things should not change. If she accepted an invitation to the memberís area, she, or her staff, should have known the protocols.
If she wants to attend in jeans she can enter the Wimbledon lottery like everybody lease.

I think Meghan is great, by the way. She just got it wrong this time. Not exactly a nightmare, just a faux pas.

Everyone knows the deal with Wimbledon, they do their own thing, if you don't like it then fuck off.

This is the same press that attacked her for the way she held Archie during Harry's charity polo match.

well. "they" prevented nole to wear a cap which was dark on the underside numerous times in his matches.
wimby has always been a special bunch of elitist snobs clinging to ridiculous procedures and rules just because tradition says so. it's about time to end this BS.
