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"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?!

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! 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 [...] 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. 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 [...] 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.

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.].....»»

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.].....»»

Meghan Markle & Her Father Have Had Their "Ups & Downs" — But They"re In A "Good Place Now"!

Meghan Markle has a complicated relationship with her father, but that doesn't mean she isn't excited for him to be at her royal wedding.

As you likely saw, last week, Kensington Palace confirmed that Thomas Markle Sr. WILL be present at Prince Harry and Meghan's nuptials on May 19. 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.].....»»

Related: Thomas Markle Now Says He Lied To Prince Harry In the blog post, Markle -- who at that point had no idea she'd actually be a member of the royal family just a few years later -- wrote about a meeting she'd had with Libyan princess Alia Al-Senussi, and how that reinvigorated Markle's dream of royalty (below): "Little girls dream of being princesses. I, for one, was all about She-Ra, Princess of Power ... Grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy. Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate." Ha!

Prince Harry Is "Super Protective Over" Fiancée Meghan Markle Amid Her Continued Family Drama!

Prince Harry is ride or die when it comes to fiancée Meghan Markle. As you surely know, the Suits actress is currently facing some negative press regarding her estranged relatives.

As you surely know, the Suits actress is currently facing some negative press regarding her estranged relatives. Thankfully, it sounds like the ginger prince has been there for her through all of the dramz. Related: A Breakdown Of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Wedding Party! An insider spilled to Us Weekly: "Harry is super protective over Meghan and isn't happy unless she is happy. Any time there is or has been negative press about Meghan, he always blows it off and acts as though it's them two against the world." We can't say we find this very surprising, especially since his own mother Princess Diana had a VERY complicated relationship with the paparazzi leading up to her death. In case you forgot, the late Princess of Wales was harassed and followed by photographers during (and after) her tumultuous marriage to Prince Charles. The source continued: "[Harry] just wants to protect [Markle] and has been this way [since] everything that happened with his mom and how the media treated her." Sadly, it's Meghan's own family who is causing her distress in the press. Specifically, Miz Markle's father Thomas has been in the hot seat for staging paparazzi pics -- after the royal family SPECIFICALLY ordered the media to give the Markle family privacy. He's since pulled out of the royal wedding, as he needs urgent heart surgery. Reportedly, both Harry and Meghan have been "reaching out to Thomas" amid the health scare. On how Harry feels about the drama, a confidant admitted: "He wants to make things better for her since she is so beside herself." At the end of the day, May 19 is just about Harry and Meghan and their love. Nobody else matters!! Best of luck to the bride and groom. [Image via WENN.].....»»

Royal Wedding: Meghan Markle"s Father Has THIS To Say About Her Wedding With Prince Harry!

With family like this, who needs enemies?? As you're likely aware, Meghan Markle's relatives have done pretty much everything in their power to ruin her royal wedding.

As you're likely aware, Meghan Markle's relatives have done pretty much everything in their power to ruin her royal wedding. 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.].....»»

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle"s Matchmaker REVEALED!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's mystery matchmaker has FINALLY been revealed! As you surely know, during their first interview as an engaged couple, the ginger prince admitted that a mutual friend set them up back in 2016. At the time, the 33-year-old said they wouldn't share their cupid's identity in order to "protect her privacy."

As you surely know, during their first interview as an engaged couple, the ginger prince admitted that a mutual friend set them up back in 2016. At the time, the 33-year-old said they wouldn't share their cupid's identity in order to "protect her privacy." Related: Princess Eugenie To Wed Longtime Boyfriend! While many names have been thrown out as the possible matchmaker, a source close to the situation confirmed to E! News that Harry's childhood friend Violet von Westenholz can be credited for starting this royal love story. Ooh, go on!! Violet is the daughter of a baron who is very good friends with Prince Charles, thus, she's been in Harry's social circle for years. In fact, Miz von Westenholz's little sister Victoria was once romantically linked to the royal airman. Regardless, over the years, Violet has become an important confidante in Harry's life. An insider shared: "Harry was having a really hard time finding anyone. It's hard enough finding someone new to date. He can hardly go on Tinder or a dating app like normal people, but to meet someone that you actually connect with, that was proving to be almost impossible. It was something he had confided in his closest friends about; he was ready to meet someone but it was so hard to actually find the right person." Awwwww. Here's where Violet comes in... Apparently, Violet and Meghan crossed paths thanks to the former's public relations work with Ralph Lauren. So, when Harry confided in Violet about his love struggles, she immediately thought of Markle. The tipster dished: "Meghan had been a part of the London social scene for a while and had slotted into the high society set really easily. And so when Harry told Violet he was having trouble finding someone, Violet said she might just have the perfect girl for him." And that she did!! In case you forgot, after only two dates, Meghan and Harry jetted off to Botswana for a magical vacay. Related: Meghan Can't Seem To Shake THIS Hollywood Habit! It's said Harry is truly smitten with Meghan too. The source admitted: "Even with Chelsy [Davy], Harry didn't feel this kind of spark. And they were together for years! Harry just knew immediately, from the moment he spent time with Meghan, that he wanted to be with her. It's a simple case of meeting the right girl at the right time." It probably helps that the prince's pals are so fond of her as well. Friends close to Prince William's brother have said that Meghan is "a really good fit into the group" and has helped Harry to settle down. The Markle sparkle didn't stick with only one person, as one chum spilled: "Meghan did put someone's nose out recently because she was introduced to them at an indoor location and didn't take her sunglasses off. But that's really been her only faux pas... We are all just really happy that he finally met a woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with." Violet has yet to confirm her matchmaker status, but we're sure we'll see her at Meghan and Harry's May wedding. Squee!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Watching Familial Dysfunction Unfold Likely Helped Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Cement Their Romantic Bond!

Meghan Markle may be a beautiful, intellectual Hollywood starlet, but she and fiancé Prince Harry connect on an even deeper level. There's no denying that the ginger prince was instantly smitten when first introduced to the Suits actress. Heck, Prince William's brother jetted Meghan off to Botswana for their third date. While their charms and similar [...] Meghan Markle may be a beautiful, intellectual Hollywood starlet, but she and fiancé Prince Harry connect on an even deeper level. There's no denying that the ginger prince was instantly smitten when first introduced to the Suits actress. Heck, Prince William's brother jetted Meghan off to Botswana for their third date. While their charms and similar charitable spirits linked them together, few may realize that the love birds also connected over their mutual Child Of Divorce status. Related: Harry & Meghan May've Snickered At Liam Payne's Performance Apparently, the shared experience of watching their respective parents fall out of love only strengthened their bond as a couple. In case you forgot, an eight-year-old Harry was at the center of a high profile split when Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana finally admitted to the public that their marriage was over. As for Miz Markle, the American divorcée was only six when her parents, Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle, divorced. Although Meghan has claimed that her family was "still so close-knit" following the split, a close childhood friend has painted a different picture. Ninaki Priddy spilled to E! News: "It could be hard for her. Sometimes she felt she had to pick sides. She was always trying to make sure each of them was happy. She'd have to relay messages. It was literally stuff like, 'Tell your mother…,' or 'Tell your father…'" How sad. Thankfully, both Ragland and Markle were involved in Meghan's upbringing. When the now 36-year-old wasn't doing charity work with her mother, she was visiting with her father on set in Tinseltown. Harry didn't necessarily have a warm childhood, as after his parents' messy divorce, Queen Elizabeth II's grandson lost his mother to a terrible car accident. Last year, the 33-year-old admitted that he and William "were bouncing between [Diana and Charles]" quite a bit. Despite touting it as "an interesting way of growing up," Harry heavily implied that he and his brother were at the center of many fights. Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, also added to the conversation: "It was upsetting for them to watch the fall-out of their parents' marriage and whenever Diana got upset, they would push notes under her door saying, 'It will be OK.' Diana smothered them in love, and they always slept in her room during that time and not the nursery." Intense stuff. No wonder Harry is so drawn to Meghan. Oh, and it explains why Harry said that the Windsor family Christmas allowed Markle to have a holiday experience that she "never had" before. Priddy supported the prince's claim, as she noted: "The idea of having a family was something Meg very much wanted, particularly because she was from a family that felt very disjointed." Thus, it's apparent that Meghan and Harry are taking their nuptials very seriously. Not only has Meghan transitioned well into royal life, but Harry has also doted on her the whole way. We honestly couldn't be happier that these two have found each other!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

It's actually Rachel Meghan Markle. We assume like many actors, she chose to tweak her handle for more star power. Meghan Markle does have a nice ring to it (and speaking of rings, after the Royal Wedding she'll also be known as the Duchess of Sussex!). Funny enough, she couldn't escape the moniker as she played a character named Rachel on the USA hit Suits. Life is funny like that sometimes.

Here"s How Meghan Markle Will Pay Tribute To The Late Princess Diana During Her Wedding With Prince Harry!

Princess Diana may be gone, but she'll be remembered at her son's upcoming wedding. As you surely know, Prince Harry is about to put his bachelor days behind him, as he's slated to wed American actress Meghan Markle this May.

As you surely know, Prince Harry is about to put his bachelor days behind him, as he's slated to wed American actress Meghan Markle this May. Since this is a major milestone for the ginger prince, it's not surprising to learn that he's honored his deceased mother in a number of ways ahead of the nuptials. Related: Meghan 'Completes' Harry! For starters, the ring Harry proposed with features diamonds from one of Diana's brooches! Not to mention, gossip has suggested that the Suits alum may don the late humanitarian's Spencer tiara at the wedding. In fact, even the royal wedding flowers will pay tribute to Prince Charles' ex wife. According to Elle UK, Markle's wedding bouquet "will pay tribute to the ‘People's Princess.'" How?? Apparently, the floral arrangement will "be made up of white garden roses to symbolize the royal." Awwwwww. This update comes days after Kensington Palace confirmed that London-based florist Philippa Craddock has been tapped to create the floral displays for the royal nuptials. The palace announced on Instagram: Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen floral designer @philippacraddock to create the church flowers for their wedding💐 The displays in St George's Chapel will feature foliage from The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park, and will use seasonal plants including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves. The designs will reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which many of the plants will be drawn. The Royal Parks will also supply pollinator-friendly plants from their wildflower meadows. These plants provide a great habitat for bees and help to sustain healthy and biodiverse ecosystems. 📷PAA post shared by Kensington Palace (@kensingtonroyal) on Apr 1, 2018 at 1:16am PDT The Sun also weighed in on this report, as they too said the engaged pair will have "white garden roses in memory of Princess Diana" at their marital celebration. Reportedly, the roses will be placed next to peonies -- Meghan's favorite flower -- and foxgloves. We aren't necessarily shocked to learn this, as last year, Kensington Palace unveiled The White Garden in order to celebrate the life of Prince William and Harry's mother. You know, the very same garden where Harry and Meghan announced their engagement back in November. We honestly think that Harry and Meghan's wedding is going to be a magical affair. Again, only 45 days until the big day! [Image via WENN.].....»»
