10 Royal Rules that Duchess Meghan Markle must adhere
On May 19, American actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex. She wrote a fairy tale about the story of a multi-ethnic woman becoming a royal bride.
Accordingly, life as a normal person of the Hollywood star officially ceased. Now, Duchess Meghan Markle must adhere to the strict principles set by Queen Elizabeth II.
1. Do not take selfie photos
In her first official appearance with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle revealed that she would no longer be able to take selfie photos with her fans.
This rule was designed to encourage Royal Members to communicate with their eyes and talk together instead of turning their backs on to photograph. In addition, the new Duchess is not allowed to use any filter on the social network.
2. No signature will be given to the public
As an actress in the past, Meghan Markle can comfortably sign autographs for the fans. But this was a prohibited act when she became the daughter-in-law of the Royal Family.
Kensington explained that in order to protect the official signing ceremonies, the royal members would not be allowed to sign for the public in any circumstances. The Royal Family is afraid of the signature being forged and used for evil purposes.
3. Do not use social networking
Meghan Markle is not allowed to use private social networking sites. Her image and information, along with Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton, will be posted on the royal account named Kensington Royal. As a result, her Facebook, Instagram and personal blog - The Tig, were declared dead last year.
4. Do not paint dark nails
According to OK Magazine, Royal Members are prohibited from using dark nails or colorful patterns. The royal bridesmaids are not covered with gel or nail stones. They can only beautify with simple and light nude colors.
5. Have a ready-made funeral costume
When King George died, Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip from Africa returned to England with normal clothes, while all other royal members dressed in formal attire.
That is why royal members must always prepare for the funeral. They usually have busy schedules and have to move around so preparing funeral costumes is essential if they suddenly get sad news.
6. To bow to Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II asks female members including Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker Bowles to bow down to a room in her presence.
Whether it is a formal or informal event, Duchess Markle and other royal daughters-in-law have to carry out this ritual.
7. Do not wear short skirts over the knees
The Queen of England does not accept female members of the dresses on the knees. Members such as Kate Middleton, Camilla Parker Bowles, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie all know the rules of fashion.
8. Do not eat before or after the Queen
According to StyleCaster, Royal women are not allowed to eat until the Queen begins to eat and vice versa. Diane Gottsman, an analyst, said the Royal Family had strict rules of eating.
Members of the royal family must strictly respect these rules during the meal with the Queen. When she stopped eating, everyone stopped eating even when the food was still there. In addition, no one was allowed to sleep in front of the Queen. That's a taboo.
9. Do not eat seafood outside
According to ancient royal tradition, family members are not allowed to eat any kind of shellfish such as shrimp, crab and snails to avoid food poisoning.
Mr McGrady, who has been working for the Royal Family since 1982, added the Royal family's menu is full of pure foods like vegetables and fish, and while cooking, garlic is a taboo ingredient.
10. Follow the principle of drinking tea
The tea time is considered very important for the Royal Family. Meka Meier, the ritual expert, tells everyone that the correct way to drink tea is to use the thumb and forefinger to hold the top of the tea cup holder while the middle finger lifts the bottom of the cup.
Royal women should drink tea at a certain location of the cup, so the ring of the cup is not affected by lipstick.
