Her Majesty Disregarded The Rules For Her

Fans of the royal family have long wondered why the Queen has favored Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, so much. She was invited to spend Christmas with the royal family even before she and Prince Harry married. Previously, this was something that only family members could do. Furthermore, Prince Harry was the first royal to marry a divorced woman in the church. This doesn’t seem to sit well with another royal…

Kate Allegedly Cried Because Of Her

Meghan did herself no favors when rumors surfaced that she had made her sister-in-law weep just days before her wedding. The bride allegedly placed pressure on Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte, according to a royal insider. She requested that they only wear “the very best” bridesmaid gowns. According to the Daily Telegraph, an insider said, “Kate had only just given birth to her third child, Prince Louis, and was feeling quite ¬emotional.” Is it possible that there was a rift between the Fab Four?

Her Position At A Special Event

Trooping the Color is a celebration of the British and Commonwealth militaries. Furthermore, it is also the Queen’s “official” birthday. During the parade, the royal family was photographed as they stood by and observed the proceedings. However, something in the picture drew the attention of those who saw it. The fact that Kate Middleton was in the front row and Meghan Markle was in the back with her husband drew attention. It seems that she would rather speak to him than watch!

Asking Her To Turn Around

If you didn’t know what you were looking at, it was very perplexing. She seemed to be trying to tell her husband something, but he did not seem pleased. According to a lip-reading specialist, the prince advised her to look forward as the rest of the family. The Daily Mail reported what Jacqui Press had to say about this moment. Allegedly, Harry told her, “Yes, that’s right…Turn around…look.” This begs the question: Is there something deeper going on here, and why was he so harsh?

Trouble In Paradise

It seemed that he had asked her to face forward because the national anthem was playing. This was an unusual occurrence, prompting rumors that there was trouble in paradise. It seemed that she didn’t appreciate his words either. According to several accounts, Harry attempted to ensure that the children were paying attention while the national anthem was being played. When his wife refused to do what the kids were doing, he must have been furious…

Employing Double Standards

There was another incident that made the “turn around” moment seem even more troubling. Another significant royal event is the Order of the Garter. Kate Middleton and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands were seen being asked to face the front and avoid talking by Duchess Camilla. This was almost identical to what Meghan Markle had gone through a few weeks before, but Camilla handled it much more delicately and respectfully than Harry. Is it possible that there are double standards at work here?

The Duchess Is Divorced

There was one more detail that probably irritated the royals. It was the fact that Meghan Markle had already been married and divorced before meeting Prince Harry. Trevor Engelson became her boyfriend in 2004. They had been together for a long time before walking down the aisle in 2011. Regrettably, they chose to live their own lives 18 months after the wedding, and the divorce was finalized in August 2013. We are confident that the royal family disapproved of this.

Making Errors On Instagram

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tried a new approach to reaching out to their fans and supporters not long ago. They made an Instagram account named “Sussex Royal.” Melanie Bromley, a royal expert, criticized it, claiming that the captions do not appear to have been written by a royal. “They keep making mistakes on their Instagram,” she explained by pointing out an error in a caption. It used “everyday” and not “every day.” They also used American words like “diapers” and “cribs.” Oops.

Let’s not forget that Meghan Markle made a name for herself in the acting world. This may not have gone over well with the royals. It may appear that having the skills to put on a show for Queen Elizabeth II is a strength, but when it comes to earning the family’s trust, transparency is more important. Furthermore, according to reports, Prince Philip used this very reason to warn Harry about her. The older man allegedly said, “One steps out with actresses, one doesn’t marry them.”

All The Mixed Signals

Regardless of what Prince Philip told his grandson about Meghan’s marriage, he has generally acted in a way that suggests he approves of her. He was one of the first people to meet Archie. He was also in the lovely family photoshoot that took place after the baby’s birth, which goes without saying. He also made a surprise appearance at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, despite the fact that he was recovering from an operation at the time.

Dubbed The “Degree” Wife

Prince Philip was not the only member of the royal family who had reservations about joining the family at first. According to the Sunday Times, a senior royal figure referred to her as “the degree wife,” referring to the fact that a degree in the United Kingdom takes three years to complete. This moniker was coined to suggest that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would only be together for three years. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time a royal insider has given Meghan a derogatory moniker.

She Is High Maintenance

The nicknames given to Meghan Markle imply that she is a very high-maintenance woman. It includes the phrase “Me-Gain,” which refers to the perception that she mistreats her employees. One of the most well-known nicknames has to be “Duchess Difficult.” There were allegations that she sent emails about various topics in the early hours of the morning. The Sunday Times said that she “yelled at someone for suggesting she wear ‘garbage’ tights from M&S.” They say that the staff members are not the only people who share this belief either…

Harry Changed Because Of Her

Duncan Larcombe is a writer who has reported about the royal family for The Sun for years on end. Her struggles, he claims, influenced the way her husband interacted with his peers. “All of Harry’s staff have always thought he was fantastic, but the two of them [together] are high maintenance,” he explained. He also claimed that the duke has become “quite grumpy and aloof.” According to reports, Harry is not the only member of the royal family who has had to change to accommodate her.

Additionally, Prince Harry has gone to great lengths to appease both Meghan and the royal family. It’s no secret that he’s been a royal family outcast for a long time. Now that he’s married, his loyalty appears to be put to the test regularly. After all, he’s caught between two parties with opposing ideologies. An insider said, “Harry stood up for Meghan very forcibly” on different occasions.

A Piece Of Brotherly Advice

Prince Philip wasn’t the only royal who discouraged him from marrying an actress. The Sunday Times said that Prince William also warned against rushing into such a big decision. He reportedly asked his younger brother if he was “sure” he wanted to marry Meghan Markle right away. Despite his grandfather’s and older brother’s reservations, Prince Harry seemed convinced that she was the one for him. Six months after he proposed to her, they married.

Chelsy Davy Rumors

In light of the rumors that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are having problems, a rumor involving the duke’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy surfaced. According to Phil Dampier of New Idea, she was spotted arriving in the United Kingdom and hoped to check on her royal ex. The journalist said, “I don’t have any doubt that Chelsy was the love of Harry’s life and he will always carry a torch for her.”

She Did Not Follow Protocol

Some experts have criticized Meghan Markle for her alleged inability to follow royal protocol. “I see Meghan still doesn’t follow protocol, Harry had to correct her and tell her to face forward… TWICE,” an insider said, “She eventually turned around and looked like she was going to start crying.” But what’s causing this issue in the first place? According to several experts, cultural differences are to blame for the duchess’s struggle to fit into the royal family.

The Fab Four Are Breaking Up

The fact that Prince Harry and Meghan seem to prefer doing their own thing is another sign that issues are brewing between the Fab Four. The fact that the younger couple left Kensington Palace sparked speculation that all was not well between the two couples. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also announced their intention to leave the Royal Foundation, a charity founded by the princes. The Times reported that a former royal worker said, “That’s a real sign there’s a problem.”

Part of the reason for the split was revealed to be Harry and Meghan’s desire to pursue their charitable endeavors. Another report claimed that they chose to leave their royal duties for a different reason. According to one theory, they were considering relocating to Africa! Sentebale, Harry’s own organization, has always been a source of pride for him. It aims to provide mental and physical health support to children in countries such as Lesotho and Botswana.

The Media Was Giving Her A Hard Time

When it came to Meghan Markle’s acceptance into the royal family, it was clear that both the public and the media put pressure on her. A close friend of hers, actress Priyanka Chopra, believes the duchess has been treated unfairly because of her ethnicity. “I’ve seen that and it’s really unfortunate. But if there’s anyone who can handle it, it’s her,” Chopra explained. “Of course, it has to do with racism, it’s an obvious reason.”

The Queen Was Not At The Christening

The majority of people believe that having a child will bring the family closer together. However, there are some ways in which Archie’s arrival may have exacerbated the situation. For one thing, even though she was present at the other grandkids’ christenings, the Queen did not attend his. Even if the reason she wasn’t there isn’t apparent, what happens next may leave you even more perplexed. Meghan’s birthday was celebrated with a party hosted by the Queen!

Always Putting Her First

Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married, it has been reported that he no longer hangs out with his closest friends. Since he was in elementary school, he has been friends with Astrid Harbord and Tom Inskip. According to a different source, Harry focused his full attention on Meghan. “Tom has been dropped,” this pal claimed. “It’s all part of Meghan’s quiet airbrushing out of Harry’s old posse. She doesn’t want temptation – of any sort – being put in his way while they concentrate on starting a family.”

She Is An Independent Woman

Meghan Markle is also distinct in that she is adamant about remaining true to herself. It refers to her style, which she has maintained even after she married Harry. Royal fans have chastised her for wearing sleeveless dresses to public events on several occasions. For public appearances, female members of the royal family are expected to wear formal tights. We’re not sure if this is a requirement, but Meghan has been seen in public with her legs exposed.

Her Own Family

What could be preventing Meghan Markle from making a smooth transition into her husband’s family? It’s possible that it has something to do with her family’s history. Samantha, her half-sister, has been cruel to her since she found out about her engagement. Furthermore, the family comes from an entirely different background. It does not help that Meghan is not on speaking terms with a half-brother by the name of Tom Jr. Unfortunately, it appears that both of her families have been difficult for her.

An American Woman

Many of the recent events indicate that she may never be able to fully integrate herself into the royal family. The fact that she is not British, but American, could be the biggest issue. For one thing, the British public found it strange to learn that Prince Harry was dating someone from the United States. Furthermore, some believed it was already too late for Meghan Markle to adopt many new customs and traditions.

Charles Likes Her

It appears that Prince Charles and his new daughter-in-law are getting along swimmingly! The older man had been starting a “lovely relationship with the duchess,” according to an anonymous member of the royal family who told Vanity Fair. Isn’t that great? “Charles showed so much love towards Harry and Meghan,” he said, “I think Harry will be eternally grateful to his papa for stepping in and giving Meghan’s hand in marriage.” Regrettably, it appears that he is in the minority in the royal family on this case.

Not An Easy Life

Some believe Meghan put herself in a difficult situation. According to Nick Ede, a public relations expert, she overworked herself. “This is somebody who has just entered the Royal Family, who is working quadruply as hard as she was learning scripts for Suits,” he shared. “She has actually put herself in the position where it’s not an easy life – there are far easier things to do than this.”

Her Lavish Spending

Her most recent “investment” has also made headlines. She has been accused of spending in a “non-royal” manner by the British public. According to royal accounts, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly spent $3 million on Frogmore Cottage renovations. When they moved out of Kensington Palace, this was where they lived. Hearing such a thing outraged many members of the public. This is reasonable, given that they essentially paid for the lavish renovations with taxpayer funds.

This isn’t the first time she’s spent a large sum of money. According to reports, she allegedly spent more than $400,000 on a lavish baby shower in New York. Let’s not forget about the claims that she spent a million dollars on a Givenchy wardrobe. Piers Morgan, a talk show host, even compared her to Marie Antoinette because of her lavish lifestyle. “She can’t have her cake and eat it,” said Morgan about her spending.

Why She Was Not There

Meghan was not present at the Royal Ascot, despite Kate Middleton’s excitement to be there with Queen Elizabeth. Fans assumed she didn’t show up because she didn’t get along with the royal family. The reason for her absence, on the other hand, is fairly obvious. At the time, she was still on maternity leave! Even though she took time off to attend Trooping the Color, her royal duties were suspended for six months due to her pregnancy.

Due to Harry and William’s alleged feud, only the Duchesses Meghan and Kate are expected to attend Wimbledon. We are all aware of the significance of the tennis tournament. According to Katie Nicholl, a royal expert, the princes’ idea was feuding is “absolutely the case,” which explains why the Fab Four were not present that year. She said, “I was told by a very senior royal source that they weren’t actually talking to each other at one point.”

Spilling Their Problems On A Documentary

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently spoke out about their struggles in a documentary called Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, and it has been broadcasted in Africa, Europe, and Australia. According to reports, royal officials were concerned about a couple of things revealed by Meghan and Harry. It also details how the royal life had impacted their emotional and mental well-being. What did they have to say about it, specifically?

It was Meghan’s first opportunity to speak openly about her struggles as a newlywed and new mother. She also drew public attention when it appeared that the royal family was not supporting her when it came to her emotional health. “As a woman, it’s a lot,” she replied when asked if she was okay. “Thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

Too Close For Comfort

If you know anything about British history, you know that the country has seen some terrible tragedies over the years. When it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were only 10 feet away from a plane crash, representatives braced themselves for a new one. It turned out that an unauthorized drone was flying too close to their private plane! They were driving from Nice to Luton at the time. Everyone on the plane would have died if the device had collided with it!

Her Battles In Court

Meghan Markle is far from the only member of the royal family who has had to deal with legal issues. She, too, would prefer not to go through one if she had the option. She has been involved in a legal battle with the press, as you may have heard. In particular, she is currently suing the Mail on Sunday because it published her private letter to Thomas Markle, her father. They published the story after she married Prince Harry in 2018.

Transitioning To A Normal Lifestyle

Meghan Markle was not born into aristocracy, as is well known. In fact, she underwent a significant transformation from a Hollywood star to a royal family member. A number of incidents appear to indicate that she is struggling to adjust to her new lifestyle. She and Prince Harry have actually decided to split their time between the United Kingdom and North America!

A Christmas Of Their Own

Many people believe that the royal family had not given them the green light before the news broke. The royals were reportedly surprised as well as “disappointed.” However, we doubt it came as much of a surprise. There was a lot of evidence that they were interested in a royal exit months before it happened. For one thing, instead of spending Christmas at Sandringham, they chose to spend it on Vancouver Island, Canada. They also avoided public engagements.

The Queen Gets To Decide

The Queen allegedly barred the Duchess of Sussex from seeing some of the Royal Collection’s pieces. According to reports, she is more lenient with Kate Middleton. According to Gavin Gray, “There was this row where Meghan wanted this particular necklace, Harry said ‘Meghan gets what Meghan wants,’ and the Queen turned around and said ‘oh, no, she doesn’t. I decide what necklace is going to be worn out of the Royal Collection.’” There appears to be more than this when it comes to the rumored feud between the two duchesses.

The Media Frenzy

The press has been critical of Meghan since she and Prince Harry married, as most people are aware. It’s clear that the media’s portrayal of the couple influenced their decision to step down. He has also spoken about this subject. “I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person,” he said in a statement. “I lost my mother, and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

Changing Their Relationship With The Press

We are not surprised that the press has repeatedly portrayed Meghan Markle negatively, so we are not surprised that they have taken action. When they announced their decision to take a break, they launched a new website with a section dedicated solely to the media attention they received. It indicates that the couple has decided not to participate in the royal media system. Typically, a media outlet will cover an event and then distribute the photos to other organizations. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, on the other hand, have chosen to collaborate with journalists who can provide objective reports to reputable outlets.

Another factor that has caused Meghan to distance herself from the royal family is her desire to advocate for certain causes. She has always been passionate about mental health, even though she has never had the opportunity to speak about it in front of a larger audience. Remember that she cannot say whatever she wants because she is a member of the royal family. Now that she is no longer a member of the royal family, she will be able to devote her time to causes close to her heart.

The Life She Used To Have

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said they were looking for a place with “geographical balance” before deciding where to move. This way, they are going to have the chance to raise their son “with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born” but still have enough space to build a life of their own. But this raises the question of whether Meghan misses her acting days more than she admits. Did she have to make too many sacrifices when she joined the royal family?

Finally, the answer to that question came sooner than anticipated. She agreed to a contract with Disney in exchange for a donation to a wildlife charity. This means that she will be able to resume her acting career while also giving back. She is said to be doing the voiceover for a Disney project in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders, a conversation charity. Just to let you know, this isn’t the first time she’s been linked to Disney…

In fact, Meghan Markle and Disney have a long history of working together. The Lion King will have its European premiere in July 2019. The event’s proceeds were donated to African Parks, an organization that Prince Harry strongly supports. Besides that, Disney presented the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with a watercolor animation of Winnie-the-Pooh in honor of Archie’s birth. The couple has been attempting to strike a balance between their royal duties and their Hollywood lifestyle. On the other hand, Meghan appears to have always struggled to let go of this aspect of her life.

Even though the couple has decided to leave the royal life, some things will remain the same for them. For one thing, they will continue to carry out some royal duties. They will also retain their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. A royal biographer by the name of Penny Junor, however, said that they need to reconsider their careers because “their charitable work does not generate income, and they have a pretty extravagant lifestyle.”

Dividing Their Time

The couple’s decision to step down has been described as “unprecedented” by experts. This is the first time in the royal family’s history that something like this has occurred. Even though the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now the talks of the town, other members of the Sussex family have severed ties with the royal family in various ways. There are those who have had to leave because of a divorce or who have chosen to abdicate. However, no one before them had decided to divide their time between a royal lifestyle and a regular life.

They Only Want To Be Happy

If you look back in time, Meghan has always struggled to adjust to life as a royal family member. She’s always been a strong, modern woman trying to make her way in the world. Perhaps she found the new role to be too demanding and limiting. Fortunately, she and Prince Harry appear to be on the same wavelength. After all, he had previously struggled to follow the strict rules of the royalty. In any case, we believe they are entitled to true happiness, no matter what it takes! Congratulations, Harry and Meghan.

This couple’s story isn’t quite over yet, as it turns out. On the contrary, it appears that this is only the start for these two! Other things have been happening simultaneously as they announced they would be stepping down from their royal duties and roles. In the middle of February 2021, the couple announced that they were expecting their second child! The news, understandably, caused quite a stir in the media, but was it any good this time?
