Former American Actress, and now Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s life changed forever when she married UK’s Prince Harry. She is officially a member of the royal family and obviously a lot of things have to change in her life.
According to reports, apparently this is a list of things that Meghan will no longer be able to do now that she is a royal. When I read these, some made sense with some being funny as hell.
Take Selfies: While she may have taken selfies with fans during her time in Suits, Meghan will have to refuse now that she is a royal. According to The Mirror, Meghan had told a couple in Nottingham that “we’re not allowed to do selfies.” It’s believed that The Queen isn’t a fan of the modern trend, with her labelling them as “disconcerting” and “strange”.
Go out alone: Meghan will now constantly be surrounded by heavy security at all times. Being part of the most famous family in the world, she will no longer be able to go out or a jog in the park or a walk alone to clear her head.
Have social media: Meghan’s social media presence has pretty much disappeared over the past few months. In the last few years, she had built up a following of over three million followers on Instagram and used to post images of herself regularly. However, since shutting down her website The Tig in April 2017, Meghan hasn’t posted on her Instagram. Like all of the other royals, the public will now be updated on Meghan’s activities through the Kensington Palace Instagram account.
Vote: While she may be a British citizen, Meghan is not allowed to vote in elections. According to the parliament website: “Although not prohibited by law, it is considered unconstitutional for the Monarch to vote in an election.”
Wear dark nail varnish: According to OK! Magazine, coloured nail varnish and fake nails are not part of royal etiquette and are seen as “vulgar.” On the rare occasion that they do paint their nails, they have to be a nude shade.
Sign autographs: Members of the royal family are not permitted to sign autographs for people, with Prince Charles once telling a fan: “Sorry, they don’t allow me to do that.” However, they are allowed to sign visitor books on official engagements as well as official documents.
Go to bed before The Queen: When sharing a house or castle with Her Majesty, guests don’t “feel right” about excusing themselves before The Queen is done for the night. So, if Lizzy is on an absolute mad one till 6am, Meghan is going to have to join in as well.
All I can say is TJO!! If this is true then I personally wouldn’t last in a royal household. It’s not for crazy and wild people like some of us nje I’d be the first one to tell the Queen to go to sleep because she’s keeping everyone awake. See why I can’t be a Duchess?? Lol
Well, Meghan kinda broke the rules by becoming the first person of colour to be part of the royal family, maybe she will be the first one to break the above mentioned rules too.

Not allowed to go to bed before the Queen?? Royal rules kunzima shaam!!
This is hilarious. I would not be able to survive for the life of me. No selfies? Can’t go to bed before the Queen? What? Does she continue to work as an actress or is that done? And how will that be managed?
These rules are first class ridiculous. What kind of life is this?
The “not going to bed before the queen” part doesn’t sit well with me, I love my sleep hleng. When sleep calls, I answer.
