Will Meghan Markle Be Forced to Follow Royal Protocol More Since She’s a Mom?

Meghan Markle‘s life has changed drastically in the past few years, and she is living the ultimate fairy tale. First, she met and fell in love with a handsome prince, then they married in a lavish ceremony watched by millions around the world.

Within a few months, Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, made the announcement they were expecting their first child, and they moved into a spacious, fully renovated 10-bedroom home that is fit for a prince and a princess. It seems that Meghan now has everything that she could ever dream of.

The Duchess of Sussex is known for her sparkling personality, her genuine smile, and her amazing sense of style. In addition, she is also known as being somewhat of a royal rule bender. The members of the royal family must follow a strict set of rules, most of which they wouldn’t ever think of breaking.

The Meghan that we all know and love is notorious for sticking to her beliefs and not letting anyone tell her otherwise. So far, she has gotten away with bending the rules, but now that she is a mom, will she be forced to follow royal protocol?

Meghan Markle has a strong personality

Meghan was a well-known actress before meeting Harry, and one of the reasons she had such a huge fan base was because of her bold personality. She never hesitates to stand up for what she believes in, and she doesn’t let people’s opinions sway her one bit.

When Meghan has something to say, she certainly makes sure people listen, just like the time many years ago when she was offended by the dialogue in an advertisement for dishwashing detergent. Never one to sit back and not take action, a young Meghan wrote a letter to the company, and the wording was changed.

Meghan Markle does things her own way

Royal family members must do things a certain way. However, Meghan tends to follow the beat of her own drummer. For instance, women are expected to wear pantyhose at all times. Nail polish must be in light, neutral colors that are approved by Queen Elizabeth, and hairstyles and jewelry are to be polished and conservative.

Meghan has broken every single one of these rules. Not only has the duchess stepped out with short skirts and bare legs, but she has worn dark nail polish, expressive jewelry, and just about always sports her signature messy bun hairstyle. Although this technically goes against what is dictated by the queen, Meghan never looks anything less than spectacular. In fact, her many looks are copied on a regular basis by millions of her fans.

Is there royal protocol for raising children?

Mothers in the royal family are expected to do things a certain way as well. A few examples are that royal children typically have a nanny, they go to private school, they must be baptized, and young boys must wear shorts, even when it is cold. It is already known that Meghan and Harry aren’t planning on hiring anyone to help with Archie Harrison, and it remains to be seen as to how Meghan will choose to dress him for appearances.

Will Meghan Markle be forced to follow royal protocol now that she is a mom?

We hope not! Just like all of her fans, we love the fact that Meghan chooses to do as she pleases to a certain extent. No matter what parenting rules she decides to follow, we can be sure that she will always do what is best for her newborn son.

If she hasn’t been afraid to bend some royal rules so far, we don’t expect to see that change. Meghan and Harry intend to raise Archie outside of the royal bubble, and that will include bending some rules here and there.
