Changes Meghan Markle had to make as a Royal
Meghan is an American model and actress known mostly for the TV series "Suits", where she played for 7 years. She has also starred in several feature films, including "Horrible Bosses " and "Remember Me". But she did not always want to work in show business. She studied at Northwestern University, where she majored in theater and international relations. After graduation, she worked for U.S embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Meghan is an activist and a charity worker, she is an ambassador for U.N. women.
Meghan is the first American to be officially a part of the British royal, and with her marriage with Prince Harry, she becomes the first American to be given the title Her Royal Highness. There are some rules she needs to follow in order to be a Royal and here is a list of them.
Hear it from herself: "There’s a misconception that because I have worked in the entertainment industry that this would be something I would be familiar with. But even though I had been on my show for I guess six years at that point, and working before that, I've never been part of tabloid culture."
No personal life
No personal life is, of course, the first most important one as you can see, she has deleted her Twitter and Instagram account! Everything is pretty serious!
The U.K. parliament website says: "Although not prohibited by law. It is considered unconstitutional for the Monarch to vote in an election." The royal family stays neutral in these political situations so she is not going to vote in the British Election nor the American Election.
As you have seen, Markle is no longer a member of the ‘Suit’ team. After the announcement of her engagement, we witnessed her departure from the series. She called this a new chapter of her life saying:
"Keep in mind, I've been working on my show for seven years. So we were very, very fortunate to be able to have the longevity on a series. And once we hit the 100-episode marker, [I felt] 'I have ticked this box.' And I feel really proud of the work I've done there," Markle continued, alongside Harry. "It's time to work as a team with you."
Followed by the security
The thing about the Royal family is that they cannot just easily go everywhere like how normal people do! Meghan was a fan of yoga before all of this and even when she was dating Harry, she was attending the classes with her close friend or even go grocery shopping but right now things are different.
She is accompanied by the security everywhere she goes and even receives defense training from Scotland Yards' royal protection unit according to ABC news!
Now that she is a new member of a Royal family, she needs to find shift all her focus on the charitable work that is conducted by the royal family. Even though she was working in this field before now it is the sole focus of her.
"The causes that have been very important to me, I can focus more energy on. We realized once you have access and a voice that people are willing to listen to, with that comes a lot of responsibility, which I take seriously.
And now being boots on the ground in the U.K., I'm excited to just really get to know more about the different communities here, [and learn about the] smaller organizations who are working on the same causes that I've always been passionate about under this umbrella."
As we all know, the title of the Royal member change as soon as they enter the royal family and Meghan is no exception. Alastair Bruce, the royal expert told InStyle: "At that moment, she becomes Her Royal Highness Princess Harry of Wales.
Well, that's a big change. She will never ever be Her Royal Highness Princess Meghan. That will never happen.
She will become Her Royal Highness Princess Harry of Wales, because we don't give the brides titles in their own right. It's a tradition in Britain. There's a reason, but it's very boring."
Another thing that she needs to do is to pack an all-black outfit for any trips! This rule is for the times when someone dies so that they would all be prepared and the rule is for everybody in the family not only Meghan.
The way that she is going to interact with her fans is also pretty different! Nothing as an autograph or a selfie is allowed, only the smile and wave is welcomed!
Meghan Markle’s citizenship also changed after the announcement of her engagement! She becomes a naturalized citizen of the U.K., Kensington Palace.
No designer clothes
Right when you are a well-known star, you will receive some designer’s clothes for free since that would be a type of promotion for that brand and the designer. However, as she becomes a Royal, this will go away!
The eating habits also change as the Royal family has no potatoes, rice, or pasta for the dinner, no dish cooked with garlic and also they do not have any seafood.
A royal mom
And after all, that, as the wedding date is approaching, the question of when they are going to have a baby is popping up as well! Prince Harry himself commented on this saying: "I think you know one step at a time, and hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future,"
