There are a lot of things that American-born actress Meghan Markle won’t be able to do now that she’s a part of the Royal Family. For starters, she’s no longer an actress, but when you’re given the opportunity to marry Prince Harry and become a Royal Duchess, that just seems like a nice trade off, don’t you think? So, it seems like Markle and Prince Harry were meant to be. In 2016, she went on a date with him in a private room in London’s SoHo House. Not long after that, they went on a safari together, and eventually, their love grew and as of May 19, 2018, they’re husband and wife. But now that she’s royalty, Markle will have to stop herself from doing a few things…make that a lot of things!
After playing Rachel Zane on “Suits,” Meghan Markle has gotten used to the attention from her fans.
As an actress, you’re bound to accrue a couple of fans who will flag you down on the street and beg you to take a selfie with them. But now that she’s a Duchess, taking selfies isn’t possible, and you can thank the Queen for that because she’s not a fan of selfies.
Markle has already broken many royal traditions, but going out in public alone will not be one of them.
She might have been used to going shopping all on her own when she was just an actress living in California, but as Prince Harry’s wife, she’ll never be able to be riding solo when she’s out and about.

She better hope that she can curb that instinct to cross her legs because that’s a major no-no.
As a Royal, there’s a right way to sit, and she’ll have to remember to keep her knees and her legs together while she’s sitting down. However, she can cross her ankles if she so chooses, but that’s about it.
Sorry fans! Not only will you not get the chance to take a selfie, but autographs are out as well.
The British monarchy forbids members of the Royal Family from signing autographs simply because they’re afraid that their autograph will pose a security breach. How you ask? Someone can learn how to forge Meghan Markle’s signature.

Fans will definitely miss seeing Meghan Markle on the television screen, but that’s part of the deal.
As a Duchess, she has to give up her career in acting, and if she ever feels bad about it, she can always take comfort in knowing that the late Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco, couldn’t continue acting after she married Prince Rainier III either.
