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 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.
