According to new reports, Meghan Markle has been learning a lot about royal etiquette and it sounds like the American actress may have had a culture shock at some of the odd things she as a royal and especially, as a woman has to do. Will she respect the traditions or not?
As Harry and Meghan are getting ready to get married in May, the Suits star has to make some behavior changes first.
One source at the palace has told us that the Queen has a few demands from Meghan.
‘Meghan understands that she must have a different public persona now, but she was still shocked at some of the restrictions. They just seem too antiquated and ridiculous!’ our source stated.
In other words, the rules seem to be pretty discriminatory of her as a woman and limit her freedom, especially of speech.
One of the said expectations on the Queen’s list is: ‘Do not speak unless spoken to, and always let Harry respond first.’
In addition, she is also supposed to ’let him walk in front of [her]’ as ‘no one likes a henpecked prince!’
Will she really stand for such requirements? We’re cringing at the thought!
Other odd rules include making sure not to ever use a cell phone in public because it is ‘vulgar.’
That sounds reasonable – she can have a lovely talk with Harry or other people around her, right?
Wrong! Conversations in public should always last less than two minutes!
And even then, some topics or even emotions are banned: never talk about beauty, fitness or dieting, never get mad at Harry or at other people in public and our personal favorite: never complain about feeling sick.
Oh, and also, don’t dress flashy!
Some things are allowed and even encouraged, however, including: ‘Do gaze adoringly at Harry. Your job is to make him look good.’ Yikes!
Our source shared that ‘She has told friends she finds the rules hilarious — but no one in the royal family’s laughing.’
If she doesn’t follow them, the blessing to get married will be taken away faster than it was given!
