Meghan Markle Challenges Royal Traditions . . . Again. This Time It’s Captured On Film

December 21, 2017

Meghan Markle is following in her late mother-in-law’s footsteps as she shakes things up in the Royal Family.

On November 27, 2017, Prince Harry shared with the world that he was engaged to the love of his life, American actress, Meghan Markle. Since the announcement, the adorable couple has appeared in media all over the world.

It isn’t hard to guess what is so appealing about Meghan for Harry; in the traditional post-engagement interview of the couple, Meghan showed herself to be intelligent, thoughtful, kind, and fun - not to mention absolutely beautiful! The couple is completely smitten with each other and it is clear that their love is genuine.

Rumors sparked that there were small controversies after announcing the engagement, specifically from Harry’s grandmother (A.K.A., The Queen of England). Surely, stirring up the drama with the Queen is the last thing anyone would want, so hopefully, those rumors are just that - rumors. However, it’s no wonder that The Queen might have her reservations about the prince’s bride-to-be; Meghan has proven herself to have quite a rebellious spirit, which actually might be a huge appeal to Prince Harry. His mother, the beloved Princess Diana, was known for being a free spirit in all things. There's no doubt that Harry recognizes his mother's spirit in his young bride-to-be. 

The latest controversy regarding Meghan’s free spirit has surfaced around the official engagement portraits. Meghan and Harry took their pictures at Frogmore House, Windsor, Kensington Palace.

In the photos, Meghan wore a revealing and sheer gown that showed off her figure, but the two also embraced each other with affection, something that has never been done before. Traditionally, in royal pictures, regardless of the occasion, the subjects are well-composed and lacking in affection. In fact, Royals hardly even hold hands in public! Can you spot the difference between the couples? William and Kate are proper, while in the pictures of Harry and Meghan the love is quite apparent. 

Harry and Meghan's photos are far from sterile; Meghan and Harry are captured fully embracing each other. The love is obvious and the care and kindness are portrayed very clearly and beautifully. Even though these photos are not your typical Royal photos, they are very beautiful.
