America’s Meghan Markle is living every girl’s dream; On May 19th, 2018, Meghan will marry her prince charming, Prince Harry, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
While her life appears to mirror a dream-life, it turns out that marrying into a royal family is actually far more difficult than anyone might ever imagine. Take it from the gals who tried, and failed, at being in a relationship with Prince Harry.
Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas previously dated the British prince before Meghan. While they were both sweet and likable girls, they were missing one imperative component: independence.
The relationships were long-lasting, but the girls had a difficult time with Harry’s royalty; the pressure that accompanied Harry and their relationship strained the simplicity of their relationship. His previous girlfriends couldn’t quite keep up with the superior priority that being “in” the Royal family had.
However, Meghan is thriving in this prestigious atmosphere. As a successful actress prior to meeting Prince Harry, Meghan knew the spotlight and the constant business very well. She already had made a name for herself- something that the other girlfriends couldn’t quite claim. Her accomplishments and struggles in Hollywood (and her personal life prior to Hollywood) allowed her to adapt quite naturally to the Royal lifestyle.
Meghan has shown herself to be highly capable of handling hot topics, interacting with the beloved British public, and making relationships with Harry’s family. One royal source shared that Meghan “wears the trousers” in the relationship, indicating that she plays a superior role in the relationship. Harry’s response to that concept has been shockingly refreshing!
Prince Harry, contrary to popular beliefs, happens to adore Meghan’s independence and forwardness. One source told PEOPLE that she “Prince Harry could never marry a soft-spoken and graceful girl from the countryside because he’s not like that himself.” Harry has shared this Meghan’s fire and drive is something that he adores most about her and nothing about the way she handled herself thus far that frustrates him.
Awe- sounds like the perfect match! We can’t help but wonder if Meghan’s surprising way of living reminds Harry of his independent mother, Princess Diana. We see many similarities- do you?
