A regular polygon must be both equilateral and equiangular. A rectangle is equiangular. All of its sides equal 90˚ by definition.
However, a rectangle can never be equilateral. All of its sides can never be the same length. Thus, it can never be regular.

By the properties of the rectangle: only parallel or opposite sides are equal but a regular polygon must be all sides are the same or equal length. This means that rectangle can never be a regular polygon.
