Meghan Markle has become increasingly vocal since giving up her royal duties. However, after she began dating Prince Harry in 2017, she’s been far from the traditional choice for a royal partner. Here are some of the rules and traditions she’s broken (intentionally and unintentionally) since joining the British royal family.
Meghan Gets Political
On the royal couple’s website, Archewell, a picture is posted with Meghan Markle showing off her voting sticker to urge Americans to vote on Midterm Election Day in November 2022. The royal family members are supposed to be neutral in elections. Oh well.
She’s Close to Fans, the People’s Princess
The royals commonly keep their distance when arriving and departing events, but Meghan often hugs fans (which is not common among Americans), holds conversations, and even signs autograph books. However, she does not sign her name as it’s a precaution to make sure nobody copies and forges royalty’s names.
She Had a Star-Studded Baby Shower
Baby showers are not standard in Britain, but Meghan planned one in the U.S. before the birth of Archie. Some of the celebrities in attendance were Amal Clooney, Abigail Spencer, Gayle King, and possibly, but it’s never been confirmed: Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra.
