One can only imagine just how much of a whirlwind Meghan Markle has been in since she said “yes!” to her Prince. She already had a rather spectacular life, spending her time working as an actress in America and gaining a great deal of recognition in the hit television series Suits.
From the moment she got engaged to Prince Harry, life as she knew it forever changed. She said goodbye to her acting career, social media accounts, and American ways to live a life in the UK with her true love.
This fairytale is one in which many young girls have always dreamt. Now, people across the globe can watch this dream play out in real life. As glamorous as this life may sound, it does come with its own set of rules and regulations to which she must adhere.
There are a number of royal protocols the members of the household are expected to follow. As a newbie to the family, there have been a few that Meghan has broken. Some were unintentional, but others were very intentional. In her short time of becoming a royal, she’s proven that she will continually stand up for what she believes in, even if she does receive a bit of flack from her new family.
One protocol she has adamantly broken is one involving personal contact with commoners. When she first arrived at Kensington Palace, she hugged many individuals.
One source elaborated on the matter: “After the first couple of times, she started giving a hug to the guys, which wasn’t exactly protocol. At some point, somebody said to her, ‘well, people don’t really do that.’”
This might have taken many aback, setting them in their place. Meghan, on the other hand, came back with the perfect response. To this, she simply replied, “I’m American. I hug!”
While it may not be standard practices for the Royals, Meghan has clearly made her point that she will continue to be friendly, love others, and put her American spin on as many things as possible. This is just one of the many reasons why we love her!
Do you think she should be permitted to do such? Do you think that this is too forward for a royal?
