The Truth About Harry And Meghan’s Marriage

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made history
when they tied the knot in May 2018, and while this powerful marriage appears to be a happy
one, it’s certainly not a conventional royal union. Here’s what we know about the private lives
of two of the world’s most public figures. Meghan Markle left her role on Suits and was
forced to shutter her social media accounts and lifestyle blog, The Tig, as she and Prince
Harry’s relationship grew serious, but giving up her career and online presence was just
the tip of the iceberg. “I’ve always loved new experiences!” The Sun reports that Markle is also prohibited
from signing autographs or ever taking selfies, since Queen Elizabeth reportedly finds them
“disconcerting” and “strange.” She also can’t vote, despite previously expressing
her political beliefs (including her opposition to Brexit) on her now-defunct social media
accounts. As she told Birchbox in 2013, “If I wasn’t acting, I would most likely be
working in politics.” Markle is also supposedly banned from wearing
dark nail polish, which the royals deem “vulgar,” and wearing skirts above the knee, though
she’s broken the latter rule at least once since becoming a royal, rocking a short tuxedo
dress at a performance of Hamilton in London in August 2018. Lady Colin Campbell, a friend of Prince Harry’s
late mother, Princess Diana, told the Daily Beast that Markle is causing a rift between
Harry and his friends, mainly because of her progressive politics. She told the site, “[Markle] is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty
stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends. He has introduced her to them all at parties
and weddings and private dinners, but she is very anti- a lot of the things that their
world functions upon, such as shooting.” It’s alleged that Markle’s animal rights beliefs
and anti-gun stances are part of the reason why Harry has skipped hunting trips with his
family and friends since coupling up with the former actress. A royal insider also told the Daily Express
that Harry has began to shun his former pals because Markle believes they may have been
bad influences on the ginger prince, alleging, “It’s all part of Meghan’s quiet airbrushing
out of Harry’s old posse. She doesn’t want temptation of any sort being
put in his way while they concentrate on starting a family.” The Sun reports that Prince Harry is worth
a cool $38 million and that the royal family as a whole is worth roughly $89 billion, and
that Prince Harry didn’t get a prenuptial agreement before his royal wedding to Meghan
Markle. There’s a reason for that: He doesn’t really
need one. “Boom!” Most of the Windsor estate and riches actually
belong to Queen Elizabeth, not Prince Harry. Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The
Inside Story, explained to Town & Country, “You wouldn’t need a prenuptial agreement
to stop Windsor Castle from being cut in half in the event they divorce, because it’s not
Harry’s.” Meanwhile, a friend of the prince told the
Daily Mail, “There was never any question in Harry’s mind
that he would sign a prenup. He’s determined that his marriage will be
a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.” Sources told Vanity Fair in August 2018 that
Harry and Meghan were shying away from the limelight and spending a lot more time in
rural areas of England. A friend of the couple said, “They are in the country way more than they
are in London, and they are enjoying a low-key and very domesticated start to married life.” Even royal press members have noticed a marked
difference in their public presence at events, with one writer griping in the Daily Express, “[Royal journalists] are being kept further
away from [Meghan] than we were before the wedding. That means we can’t hear what she is saying. If you can’t get direct quotes from members
of the royal family, that often makes for dull stories. You go up afterwards and ask what she said.” The Daily Mail reported in November 2018 that
Harry and Meghan lost three palace aides soon after their wedding, including aide Melissa
Toubati, who had only worked for the couple for a few months. A source told the tab, “[Melissa] played a pivotal role in the success
of the royal wedding and will be missed by everyone in the royal household.” Another palace aide riffed on Oscar Wilde,
quipping, “To lose one member of the household could
happen to anyone. To lose three in a few months is starting
to look like a stampede.” Markle’s former agent hinted that the former
Suits actress may be the reason for the mass staff exodus, telling the Daily Mail that
Markle is “picky” and “likes to move on” from anyone who doesn’t share her “vision.” Sources also told The Sun that Markle, especially
in comparison to fellow royal Kate Middleton, has been “difficult” to work with. An insider alleged, “She has very high standards and is used to
working in a Hollywood environment. However, there’s a different degree of respect
in the royal household and Kate has always been very careful about how she has acted
around staff.” Hopefully Harry and Meghan can settle happily
into married life in time for the arrival of their first child, due in Spring 2019. And hopefully their holidays are happier than
whatever’s happening in this Berlin-based wax museum display depicting their domestic
life. God bless us, every one!
