Except it can. © LAN Fashion's big night out could get a heavy dose of British royals, if the rumor mill is accurate. There's already buzz that Meghan Markle, by far the most-discussed royal of 2018, could make an appearance as a show of support for her pal Serena, who is co-hosting. It may not be all that far-fetched — after all, there was talk of Markle going to the Emmys — and stranger things have happened before. Princess Diana once went out on the town to the Met Gala (in Dior, no less), and just last year, Princess Beatrice attended in an Alberta Ferretti gown.
