Actress Meghan Markle is living every young girl’s fantasy of marrying royalty when she said yes to Prince Harry’s proposal in November of 2017.
But with her new royal life comes a host of activities she will have to give upon her move to Kensington Palace and her new life as a member of Britain’s Royal Family.
The former Suits star will have to adhere to a set of strict rules that all members of the family must abide by.
While some parts of her transition into royal life might come easy, other aspects of it may be difficult for the actress.
Always willing to stop for fans and sign memorabilia, as a royal, Meghan will no longer be able to carelessly sign autographs for fans.
Also, she will no longer be allowed to take selfies, according to The Sun, and has already been prohibited by the Royal Family from doing them.
The Sun reported the actress told a couple in Nottingham, England, “We’re not allowed to do selfies.”
Meghan will also not be able to head out in public unaccompanied.
She will be surrounded by security at all times, even if she is headed to the market or out for a walk.
No longer will Meghan be able to share updates on her social media platforms from this point forward.
She regularly posted photos on Instagram, but that is now a thing of the past since she said “yes” to Prince Harry’s proposal.
Reportedly, Meghan will join Harry, Kate, and William on the Kensington Royal social media accounts that update the public.
Meghan will also not be allowed to vote in any upcoming British elections once she applies for British citizenship.
The British Parliament website states, “Although not prohibited by law, it is considered unconstitutional for the Monarch to vote in an election.”
The actress was always seen following the latest styles, but will reportedly not have as free of a hand with her fashion choices as she might like once she transitions to palace life.OK! Magazine reported that dark nail polish and even fake nails are considered to be “vulgar” in royal circles. The royal women normally wear pale shades of polish.
Meghan was seen wearing a pale shade for her official engagement photos with Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will wed in May of this year at Windsor Castle.
