Meghan Markle Has Some Seriously Strict Rules To Follow Now That She"s A Duchess!

Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry [...] Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry & Meghan Will Visit Thomas Markle In Mexico! In fact, there are all sorts of royal rules Miz Markle is now required to follow as a member of the Windsor family. We're being completely serious. Not only is Meghan's style now dictated by royal decree, but also the way she walks and talks. For a breakdown of all the royal restrictions, be sure to proceed (below)... 1. Under no circumstance is Meghan to take a selfie. It's said that the 36-year-old Duchess once told a fan that she and Harry are "not allowed to do selfies." Apparently, this rule is meant to encourage commoners to make eye contact and conversation with the royals. 2. As selfies are a no-no, so is personal social media usage. As you surely know, all news regarding Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton comes from the Kensington Royal Twitter and Instagram pages. Thus, ahead of her marriage into the family, Markle had her IG and lifestyle blog go dark. 3. Meghan is to keep her signature to herself. NO AUTOGRAPHS! In order to prevent forgery, the Suits alum is not allowed to sign any autographs. 4. Dark and/or colored nail polish is prohibited. This explains why Meghan wore Essie's Ballet Slippers pink polish at the wedding. Oh, and it's also Queen Elizabeth's favorite color. 5. Royals must ALWAYS travel with mourning clothes. This rule was instated after the then Princess Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip were blindsided by King George VI's death while abroad in Africa. The twosome were forced to travel from Africa to the United Kingdom in regular clothes. Nowadays, royals must always have a set of funeral clothes packed in order to be respectful. 6. No matter what occasion, female family members must always curtsy to the Queen. At official events, Meghan is also expected to curtsy to anyone who outranks her. 7. Short hemlines are a no-go! It's believed that the Queen disapproves of skirts that are more than an inch or two above the knee. So Meghan better toss out those tiny red carpet numbers from her Hollywood days. 8. Speaking of Hollywood, Meghan seemingly can no longer pursue an acting career. She represents the British people now, so she has an image to uphold (and we doubt an acting gig in Tinseltown will help with that). 9. Meghan is discouraged from voting in British elections. Although UK Parliament says that it's not against the law in Britain for royalty to vote, it's viewed to be unconstitutional. 10. Markle can no longer cross her legs -- in public, at least. She'll be expected to perfect the "Duchess Slant" made famous by Princess Diana and proudly carried on by the Duchess of Cambridge. 11. Meghan will have to throw away her wedges, as the Queen despises them! 12. Assigned seating for life! At any royal family gathering, Meghan will always be expected to sit next to husband Harry. 13. Dinnertime is at 8:30 pm! When dining with Harry's monarch grandmother, Meghan will have to be ready at 8:30 pm to eat. The meal will last no later than 10 pm. 14. Also, Meghan isn't allowed to eat before OR after the Queen. Guests dining with the Queen can't start eating until the monarch begins chowing down. However, once she is done, so is the rest of the dinner table. 15. Meghan can't just walk into a royal room. During family functions, there's a strict entrance line, which is as follows: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duchess Camila, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and then most likely, Harry and Meghan. 16. If the Queen's awake, so is Meghan! If Meghan crashes with Queen Elizabeth at all, she is required to stay up until the longtime royal falls asleep. 17. Monopoly has been banned! Supposedly, the Duke of York Prince Andrew previously revealed that the royals are "not allowed to play Monopoly at home," as "it gets too vicious." 18. In order to avoid food poisoning, Meghan can no longer enjoy shellfish. Now, not EVERYONE in the royal family adheres to this rule, but the Queen still does!! Man, oh man. We hope Meghan has this list memorized!! We're wishing her only the best as she embarks on her new royal life! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Are PDA Monsters!!!

Meghan Markle is a rule breaker! It was recently reported the new Duchess is working hard at getting the hang of certain Royal etiquette. But apparently one area she isn't compromising? PDA!

It was recently reported the new Duchess is working hard at getting the hang of certain Royal etiquette. But apparently one area she isn't compromising? PDA! Related: Meghan's Half-Sister Rips Her Apart In Unhinged Twitter Rant According to royal photographer Mark Stewart, Meghan and Prince Harry have been wantonly and unrepentantly crossing the line in front of everyone: "They are not afraid to hold hands. They don't mind showing their emotions." Hand holding! In public! A national scandal! LOLz! For real though, it's apparently fairly naughty by Royal standards. But it's not stopping them! Former palace spokesman Dickie Arbiter told People: "Meghan is used to being touchy-feely, and Harry is the same. Harry has always been tactile." Yes, Dickie, we all saw the Vegas photos. LOLz! Thankfully, it seems their affection is winning everyone over. Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier explained: "While Prince Harry and Meghan holding hands is atypical for royal engagements, it is a seemingly welcomed gesture to show unity and celebration of their engagement period. There is no protocol that says they can not show affection on official engagements, and this gesture makes them relatable and lovable to the public. "Meghan and Prince Harry holding hands at a royal engagement is a refreshingly modern approach to their new role both as a couple and as representatives of the royal family." Sounds like it's all working out fine. Good thing, because you'd need a LOT of those Royal guards if you wanted to pry newlyweds apart! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle"s Father Publicly Accuses The Royal Family Of Cutting Him Off From His Daughter

Thomas Markle just sat down — again — for another very public media interview in which he asserts Meghan Markle and the royal family have cut him off from ALL communications.

The Duchess of Sussex's biological father asserts in a damning new interview with The Daily Mail that he won't stop pursuing Meghan even if the royal fam has completely cut him off from his daughter. Related: Meghan Totally Approves Of Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra's Engagement! Speaking to the publication, Markle said about being cut off (below): "I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off." Hmmm.. And Thomas reveals he has thought about mailing Meghan things, too, though it's unlikely they'd get to her: "I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn't explode." Uhhh... OK! Related: Meghan's Sister Defends "Cashing In" On The Duchess' Fame That's not the weirdest part, though -- Thomas clearly has a bone to pick about getting perhaps locked out of seeing his grand child at some point next year or soon thereafter (below): "[It would be] easier for Meghan if I died. Everyone would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I'd hate to die without speaking to Meghan again. What's sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I'll be a grandfather. And if we're not speaking, I won't see my grandchild. How tragic is that—to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?" Wow! And later, he turned the whole thing into a pity party, criticizing Meghan for not properly thanking him for the way he raised her (below): "They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won't be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet. What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. How cold is that?" Yikes... Not good. Related: The ULTIMATE Royal Quiz! And also not done! How about invoking Princess Diana's name in this whole mess for Thomas, too (below): "[The Royal Family] have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry's mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That's not what Diana stood for. Princess Diana is credited with changing the Royal Family, but she wasn't perfect. She was still very much one of them. I think Meghan's the one who'll bring them into the 21st Century, if they'll let her." Wow... Controversial, to say the least!!!! What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Let us know your opinions in the comments (below)... [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle Has Found "Certain Rules" Of Being A Royal "Difficult To Understand"

If we married Prince Harry, a lot of things would be hard for us. Apparently the same is true for Meghan Markle, who according to a source in the new issue of People "has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand." Like what? Well, right off the bat there are some fashion rules which [...] If we married Prince Harry, a lot of things would be hard for us. Apparently the same is true for Meghan Markle, who according to a source in the new issue of People "has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand." Like what? Well, right off the bat there are some fashion rules which seem to be less official Royal etiquette and more Queen Elizabeth's old-fashioned taste, "like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trouser suits." Of course, what is official Royal etiquette if not the Queen's decisions? Photos: Meghan Looking Amazing In Both The source says the new Duchess "is often asking Harry why things have to be done in a certain way." "I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it." But Meghan's problem isn't just trousers -- it's also snakes. That is to say people just on the outside of the inner circle ready to leak their words to the press. When Meghan told Senator Catherine Noone she was "pleased to see the result" of Ireland's vote to legalize abortion at a July 10 garden party, the politician tweeted it out. Royal biographer Robert Lacey, who also serves as a consultant for Netflix's The Crown, explained: "That's an example of her naïveté. Within the royal family they talk freely, and everyone knows the rules. She's learning the hard way that you can't trust anyone outside the narrow circle." Since talking politics in public is a no-no for the Royals, it was a bit of a violation. (No one else must have been told as well as she did delete the tweet.) Related: Meghan's Dad Thinks She Looks 'Terrified' In Recent Public Outings But Meghan is getting a lot of help. In addition to protocol guidance from Samantha Cohen, the Queen's former assistant private secretary, Meghan also has someone on the inside with a particular interest in seeing her succeed: Her husband! Photographer Mark Stewart explains: "You can see Prince Harry's hands-on approach, steering her, helping her." Like we said, if we were married to Harry, it would take us a long time to get a handle on things and learn the ropes also. Could YOU live the Royal life?? [Image via John Rainford/WENN.].....»»

It"s Official! Prince Charles Will Walk Meghan Markle Down The Aisle In Lieu Of Her Father!

Prince Charles is taking over Thomas Markle's royal wedding duties! Yup, on Friday, Kensington Palace issued a statement revealing that Meghan Markle has asked her soon to be father-in-law to walk her down the aisle on May 19. WOW.

Yup, on Friday, Kensington Palace issued a statement revealing that Meghan Markle has asked her soon to be father-in-law to walk her down the aisle on May 19. WOW. Photos: Meghan & More Celebs Who Quit Acting! As you surely know, Miz Markle was originally supposed to be escorted by her reclusive father. However, after a scandal involving the paparazzi and an urgent health scare, the Hollywood cinematographer announced that he was unable to attend the royal wedding. While Mr. Markle encouraged Meghan to hand mother Doria Ragland his wedding duties, it appears that Princess Diana's ex husband has stepped up to take on the role. The palace issued the following on the update: "Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George's Chapel on her Wedding Day. The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way." An update on the #RoyalWedding: pic.twitter.com/wfJ6ZFyzHi — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) May 18, 2018 The show must go on, right?? Still, it sounds like the Suits star is truly touched by Charles' willingness to participate. A royal insider spilled to People: "It was Meghan's wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it." Awwwwww. It's said that, during the earlier part of the procession, Meghan will be escorted by just her bridesmaids and page boys (which includes Prince George and Princess Charlotte). Once the American actress reaches the Quire, she'll be greeted by Prince Charles and brought to royal bridegroom Prince Harry. We honestly think it's wonderful that the 69-year-old Prince of Wales is doing this for Meghan, especially since this isn't his first royal wedding! Squee!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

For starters, earlier this month, the Suits actress' half brother Thomas Markle Jr. penned a letter urging Prince Harry to call off the nuptials. Related: Lifetime's Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Movie Was Absurd! Then, Meghan's father Thomas Markle Sr. left her embarrassed after he was caught staging paparazzi pics -- after the royal family SPECIFICALLY ordered the media to give Miz Markle's family privacy. To make matters worse, Markle's estranged half sister Samantha Grant went on to take credit for the photography scandal. Oh, and Grant has been accused of planting unsubstantiated stories in the news. Smh. As Meghan's loved ones can't stay away from the limelight, we can't say we're surprised that the Markle patriarch has already commented on the royal wedding. For his reactions to the highly publicized nuptials, be sure to proceed (below)! During a chat with TMZ, the reclusive industry vet noted that he was "emotional and joyful" while watching the wedding. He noted: "My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy. I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness." In case you missed it, following his scandal, Markle was forced to drop out of the royal wedding due to an urgent health scare. In fact, Meghan's poppa had to undergo heart surgery. Thus, Prince Charles walked the American actress down the aisle! Despite the recent dramatics, the royal wedding went off without a hitch! We couldn't be happier for Harry and Meghan! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle Failing At Being A Royal Snob

Titles are titles, they don’t necessarily by default fully define the person that is attached to them. Whether Meghan Markle has finally upgraded to the Empress of Earth or lives out the remainder of her life as the Duchess of Sussex, she’s still, by DNA, an LA chick. And LA women are a different breed […] The post Meghan Markle Failing At Being A Royal Snob appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Titles are titles, they don’t necessarily by default fully define the person that is attached to them. Whether Meghan Markle has finally upgraded to the Empress of Earth or lives out the remainder of her life as the Duchess of Sussex, she’s still, by DNA, an LA chick. And LA women are a different breed altogether. They’re not designed to enjoy morning crumpets, afternoon tea, and all of the other puzzling activities that the Brits partake in. The market cap for royalty in Los Angeles ends at the red carpet. The hot one from Suits seemed to forget that she’s now so important that she shouldn’t be shutting her own car door. Meghan Markle may be the Duchess of Sussex, but she’s hardly a typical princess. While arriving at the Royal Academy of Art in London to view the art exhibit “Oceania” on Tuesday in her first-ever solo outing, Meghan broke protocol in a subtle way. After shaking hands with one of her hosts for the evening, Meghan casually shut the car door and headed inside. “First time I’ve seen an on-duty princess shut her own car door…” wrote one Twitter user. The Sun‘s royal correspondent Emily Andrews added, “A princess who still takes the time to shut her car door. Well done Meghan!” One can only imagine the amount of MeToo skeletons that Meghan is keeping in her closet to rise from struggling actress to an authentic princess. If Rose McGowan dined on Harvey Weinstein oysters with a side of trouser sourced truffle butter just for a role in Grindhouse, imagine what Markle has done to wear a crown. Meghan, 37, proved she doesn’t mind helping out on her wedding day, when she pulled a romantic gesture as she and Prince Harry hopped in a Jaguar convertible to head to their evening reception. After Harry, 33, opened the door and helped his bride into the passenger seat, Meghan reached over to make sure his door was unlocked. So Markle reenacts a scene from A Bronx Tale in real life and suddenly the world should stop to watch? Her prestigious position as Prince Harry’s penis holster is just a title. She wasn’t raised with privilege, she snatched it in a plot twist like her life was written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Her shutting her own car door just reminds us of a simpler time, when Meghan was more likely to sit on a casting couch than a royal throne.

Prince Harry Is Essentially Giving Meghan Markle Princess Lessons À La The Princess Diaries!

Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries!

However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially [...] Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries! Between meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and official public outings as a couple, it seems Prince Harry and the Suits actress are destined for an engagement. However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially transitions into becoming a royal. Related: Meghan's Half Sis IS Writing A Memoir In order to make the transition from commoner to princess a smooth one for Miz Markle, it's said the royals are schooling her in the ways of British aristocracy. Apparently, the royal family playful refers to themselves as the "Firm," since there is no special school for learning how to be a member of the privileged brood. Where's Julie Andrews -- excuse us, Queen Clarisse Renaldi -- when you need her?? Thankfully, the ginger prince has been dedicated to educating his lady about his lifestyle. Per British writer Katie Nicholl, the 33-year-old has been a mentor of sorts for Meghan. She told The Post: "He knows how daunting this will be for Meghan and he's keen for her to be relaxed in the company of senior royals." Smart, smart. Reportedly, before the teatime visit at Buckingham Palace, Harry likely informed Markle of all the protocols that she should follow. Nicholl continued: "Harry will have made sure Meghan knew how to address the queen and how to behave in her presence. He calls her ‘Granny,' but after Meghan had curtsied and called her ‘Your Majesty,' she would have reverted to ‘ma'am.' It seems strange to mere mortals, but it is how [Princess] Kate addresses her." How formal!! Although the Suits star is encouraged to be herself, she is expected to act with the manners and grace of a royal. Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, added: "She will always have to remember, in public at least, that she is royalty and certain behaviors are expected... It's going to be difficult for her because she is an independent career woman who [won't] really like being told what to do." You listenin', Meghan?? The American divorcée will also be required to learn the British rules for functioning in society. Seward relayed: "American manners are different than British manners. [She] can't walk down the street eating or chewing gum... We hold our cutlery differently. It's a whole different culture." This is quite the undertaking. Regardless, it's not like the 36-year-old hasn't had experience dealing with the public. As an actress and an activist, Meghan has had extensive media training and can speak eloquently in public. Charles Rae, former royal correspondent for Britain's Sun, informed The Post that Markle has been "studying hard" to learn everything. QUIZ: Are You A Royal Family Expert?? He explained: "She has practically been living at Kensington Palace whenever she is in London and will have seen the routine that goes on with the butlers and servants." The industry vet will also learn from the royal protection squad on how to interact with unruly fans. Rae noted: "She will learn how to cope if someone [in a crowd] comes on too strong. Ever since John Lennon was shot, the royals have been told never to rebuff anyone. Members of the family, including the queen, have had assassination attempts against them in the past, and no chances will be taken with Meghan." Intense stuff. Charles also mentioned that the TV starlet's acting career will be "a thing of the past." If you're still not convinced that Harry and Meghan are engagement bound, reports suggest that the brunette stunner's presence at either the upcoming memorial service for Remembrance Sunday or the Sandringham Christmas celebrations means the couple is serious AF. SoOoO, be sure to keep your ears to the ground, Perezcious readers!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle CANNOT Deal With Her Father"s Photo Staging Scandal Right Now!

UPDATE: 5:21 P.M.

She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this [...] UPDATE: 5:21 P.M. EST: Kensington Palace have once again released an official statement on the matter in an effort to protect Thomas Markle: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation." Is this the only way Meghan can defend her dad's honor? With Royal decree?? You'd think someone with a future of nothing but press photos would understand her father wanting some good publicity. But alas, Meghan Markle is "upset and disturbed" by Thomas Markle getting caught apparently staging photos with a paparazzi less than a week before she's set to wed Prince Harry. Related: Lifetime's Harry & Meghan Movie Was Absurd! A source told Us Weekly that while Meghan is bothered by the antics of her father, she has more pressing matters at the moment, explaining: "Meghan is upset and disturbed by the entire ordeal and just wants to move past it. She doesn't want to let anything ruin her day and is trying to keep focus on the weekend." She has enough to worry about! We mean, who's going to sit at the Spice Girls' table during the reception!? We're stressed just thinking about it. The insider added that Meghan's relationship with her father "has always been strained" because of "his ill thought-out decisions and his lack of responsibility." As we reported, Thomas was spotted arriving at a cafe in Mexico with a photographer named Jeff Rayner. The two were seen working together to find a good angle to take a picture of the 73-year-old sitting at a computer reading a news story about Meghan and his future son-in-law. Video: Meghan's Family Is THE WORST! After the scandal broke, Meghan's half sister Samantha Markle took responsibility for setting it up -- a development the source says "wasn't a surprise to Meghan at all." The insider continued: "Meghan is disappointed that her father hasn't spoken up and stopped his children from trashing her in the press. Instead, she sees his collaboration with Samantha, who Meghan feels he is much closer to, and it hurts her." Thomas later opened up to TMZ about his decision, insisting he just wanted a photo of himself in the press where he didn't look like an uncultured slob. He even claimed he was so embarrassed, he wouldn't be attending the wedding! If Thomas' intentions were truly just to look presentable, we do hope Meghan thinks about issuing a pardon.

In fact, the cinematographer will even walk the Suits actress down the aisle at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel. Related: Madame Tussauds NAILS New Waxwork Of Meghan! This update completely contradicts the scathing letter written by half brother Thomas Markle Jr., who claimed the 36-year-old was estranged from their shared poppa and didn't invite the Markle patriarch to her wedding. While things have been complicated between Thomas Sr. and Meghan in the past, it appears that the twosome aren't currently estranged. An insider confirmed this to be true, as they spilled to People: "Meghan loves her dad. Like any father-daughter relationship, there have been ups and downs over the years. But they are in a good place now." Mr. Markle, who worked as a lightening designer on shows like Married…With Children and General Hospital, got divorced from Meghan's mom Doria Ragland in the '80s. He lives away from the limelight, thanks to a quiet life in Mexico. Nonetheless, Thomas Sr. wasn't absent from Meghan's life during her fundamental years, as a former Immaculate Heart classmate revealed: "...her dad was such a sweetheart. He did the sets for our plays, which was a huge thing for us, and he would volunteer his time even after Meghan graduated. She was close with her parents. They were affectionate." As for the her brother's claims that her desire for fame has left the elder Thomas destitute?? The first source defended: "She's been supportive of him in every way, including financially. She has paid many of her father's bills over the years." It sounds like Meghan's half sibling was stirring up trouble for attention. We're glad everything is settled, as Harry is slated to meet Thomas Sr. for the first time in the days to come. Mr. Markle will also be introduced to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles of Wales, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. Harry has already become acquainted with Doria, as she even joined the love birds at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September. Hopefully, no other estranged relatives attempt to spoil Meghan and Harry's big day. Nine days, everyone!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle"s Suits Family Has Arrived In The United Kingdom — & They"re STOKED For The Royal Wedding!

Meghan Markle's Suits family couldn't be happier for her. On Friday, several of Meghan's former costars stopped by the Today show (filming live in Windsor) to open up about the American actress' Saturday royal wedding.

On Friday, several of Meghan's former costars stopped by the Today show (filming live in Windsor) to open up about the American actress' Saturday royal wedding. While Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, and Gina Torres are some of the few confirmed celebrities invited to the upcoming nuptials, the USA Network stars issued only jokes (above) when it came to discussing Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding invitations. Related: Prince Charles Will Walk Meghan Down The Aisle! During a chat with Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, Rafferty teased that "doves flew out" when she opened her invite. The quips kept coming when Hoffman claimed that, along with an invitation, "MI6 were at [his] door." However, in all seriousness, Meghan's friends were genuinely "surprised" when they made it onto the guest list for her big day. Torres admitted: "This is an incredible step in her life, so to bear witness to that is extraordinary." And, per Gina, Meghan kept her royal romance pretty "close to the vest." Although she knew that Markle was dating a royal, at first, she knew "very little" else. Still, the Suits stars have since signed off on the ginger prince, as Hoffman added: "He's lovely. They're a great match." Hear! Hear! According to Rick, he found out about Meghan's relationship "quite early," as he shared: "I was like, 'You've got to be kidding me!' It was both of us in the trailer, like, 'Oh, my God! You're dating a prince!' I was like, 'Take it slow. Be careful. Don't let him hurt you.'" Awwwwww. They clearly care so much about Meghan -- which is a refreshing change from her attention hungry relatives! Speaking of the Suits cast's close bond, Torres noted: "We worked together for so many years on the show. It's such an amazing experience. We were with each other for longer than we went to college or high school with our friends. We became family, in a way; we're still family. So, this is a wonderful family affair." You can say that again! We mean, just take a look at the way onscreen husband Patrick J. Adams is living it up in London ahead of the nuptials. Currently, Adams and wife Troian Bellisario are spending time there, as they also had an 18th birthday to attend. Photos: Meghan & More Celebs Who Quit Acting! Patrick and Troian shared on their Instagram pages: I have historically ale’d.A post shared by Patrick Adams (@halfadams) on May 17, 2018 at 12:55pm PDT Happy 18th birthday, @clare.stephenson_ - thanks for taking us to our new favorite bar.A post shared by Patrick Adams (@halfadams) on May 17, 2018 at 1:00pm PDT Patrick( the Canadian): this bar is 500 years older than Shakespeare. Troian (the American): I’m dying this is just like Hogwarts!!!! Clare (the Brit) I work here.A post shared by Troian Bellisario (@sleepinthegardn) on May 18, 2018 at 6:25am PDT The married twosome are expected to be at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel for Meghan's big day. Costar Gabriel Macht appears to have also arrived in the United Kingdom for the royal wedding, as his wife -- The Real World: London star Jacinda Barrett -- shared a pic in front of Buckingham Palace (below). Hanging in Hyde Park. Loving our time in #londonA post shared by Jacinda Barrett (@jacindabarrett) on May 15, 2018 at 2:39pm PDT Kissing in front of the Queen. #buckinghampalace Happy Mother’s Day to my Mum and all the extraordinary Mums around the world and to my angels for all of it. #thankyou #bestjobeverA post shared by Jacinda Barrett (@jacindabarrett) on May 13, 2018 at 2:42pm PDT Although, per Jacinda's Instagram account, the duo briefly jetted off to Cannes for an amfAR fundraising event. Hope they make it back in time for the "I Dos"! Regardless, it seems like Meghan's going to be surrounded by PLENTY of love on her wedding day! *Hugs*.....»»

Meghan Markle To Take Six Months Of Duchess Lessons — & She"s Being Taught By The Queen"s TOP Aide!

Meghan Markle will be trained by the best in order to prepare for her new life as a Duchess. As we previously reported, there are all sorts of rules and protocols the Suits alum must follow now that she's the Duchess of Sussex.

As we previously reported, there are all sorts of rules and protocols the Suits alum must follow now that she's the Duchess of Sussex. Thankfully, the royal family doesn't expect the American actress to learn how to be royal bride overnight. However, she will have some serious homework, as she's reportedly starting six months worth of Duchess lessons. Related: Victoria Beckham Gives Her Take On Meghan's Dress According to reports, Queen Elizabeth II has tapped one of her senior aides to coach Prince Harry's wife on the "Dos and Don'ts" of royal life. It's said that 49-year-old Samantha Cohen is relocating from Buckingham Palace to Meghan and Harry's home at Kensington Palace, so that she can work VERY closely with the Windsor family's latest addition. A source told The Times: "It will be six months of listening. She is seeking out advice from a range of people. She is going to proceed with humility. It is not going to be quiet, though. It is going to be a very busy office. She has worked every day of her life. She is used to a demanding schedule." And it sounds like Samantha is the perfect person for the job. Not only does Cohen have almost two decades of experience within the Queen's household, but she viciously protects the Windsors and is lovingly known as, "Samantha the Panther." Often described as "deeply committed-to serving the Monarchy," Samantha was among the first women to take control of the royal family's media office -- this department had originally been run by mostly men for a significant length of time. After a stint in PR, Samantha became the royal deputy press secretary in 2003 and worked her way up to the top position four years later. In 2016, Cohen was made a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in honor of her loyal service. Per reports, Samantha has already begun her work with Meghan, having advised her ahead of Prince Charles' 70th birthday/garden party at Buckingham Palace. Well, this explains why Markle is already donning pantyhose!! Regardless, as Meghan isn't a traditional royal bride, we're excited to see how she tackles her newly minted role. Good luck, girl!!

Bethenny Frankel Boasts That She Once Dated Meghan Markle"s Ex-Husband!

Talk about six degrees of separation! It seems that future royal Meghan Markle has something in common with Real Housewives of New York queen Bethenny Frankel. Apparently, the Skinnygirl founder once dated the Suits alum's first husband, Trevor Engelson. What a small world! Related: Meghan Will Pay Tribute To Princess Diana During Her Wedding! On Monday, during her [...] Talk about six degrees of separation! It seems that future royal Meghan Markle has something in common with Real Housewives of New York queen Bethenny Frankel. Apparently, the Skinnygirl founder once dated the Suits alum's first husband, Trevor Engelson. What a small world! Related: Meghan Will Pay Tribute To Princess Diana During Her Wedding! On Monday, during her chat with Australia's Kyle and Jackie O Show, Miz Frankel revealed her connection to Prince Harry's fiancée. The Bravolebrity spilled: "I met this guy as a romantic interest. His name is Trevor. I met him in Chicago and we were supposed to go out, and I ended up seeing him one time and he'd been texting me. He's a producer in L.A. He told me that he was married before. He's divorced [now]. He was married to this girl named Meghan Markle from the TV show Suits." At the time of this encounter, Bethenny knew very little about Meghan and had NO idea what Markle's future would entail. However, once Meghan and Harry's engagement was confirmed, Frankel had no qualms with shooting Trevor a text. Per the reality TV vet, she texted Markle's ex: "Holy shit! Your ex is going to be a princess. Is that crazy?" Sadly, the 47-year-old didn't reveal how Engelson responded to this quip. Although, if the gossip about the way Meghan ended her first marriage is true, we're sure Trevor wasn't THRILLED to learn that Meghan totally upgraded her romantic life. As for Bethenny and Trevor's relationship?? It sounds like they were destined to be business partners, rather than lovers. She continued: "He pitched me a TV show idea to produce together about a bunch of businesswomen, which I think we are going to do." Very cool. On why she didn't pursue a relationship with Markle's former flame, the New York native revealed that Trevor looks "a little bit like [her] ex." The businesswoman explained: "He looks a little bit like my ex, which scares me. We bypassed the romantics and went into the business. But I don't know there's something there. There's something salacious about doing a TV project with Meghan Markle's ex." Too funny. We're sure Meghan is unbothered by Trevor's past interest in Bethenny, as she's landed herself quite the royal bachelor!! [Image via Rob Rich/WENN.].....»»

OK.’ ‘Of course, we’ll have to call him “H” so no one knows we’re talking about Harry,’” Thomas said. He then spoke about Prince Harry asking for permission to marry the now-Duchess of Sussex. “Actually, Meghan told me first…then the few times after that, Harry got on the phone with Meghan, they called me together, and Harry asked for her hand over the phone and I said, ‘You’re a gentleman. Promise me you’ll never raise your hand against my daughter, and of course I give you my permission,” Thomas continued.
