Royal rules Meghan Markle MUST sweep away to marry Harry (especially if they want a baby!)
MEGHAN Markle is due to marry Prince Harry in May and life for the US actress is set to dramatically change when she joins the firm. With just weeks to go before the couple tie the knot in Windsor, Prince Harry’s bride-to-be will be getting to grips with the strict rules she is going to have to get used to.
So far, the 36-year-old former Suits actress appears to be taking to life in the Royal Family in her stride and royal fans across the world have been taken by her natural charm and beauty.
And as she visits numerous cities across the UK alongside her husband-to-be, it has become apparent Meghan is the touchy-feely kind, leaving no child un-hugged and even allowing members of the public to kiss her.
Clearly happy to do it her own way, the American continued to break royal protocol as she enthusiastically greeted members of the public.
As she wowed the crowds, Meghan Markle even allowed one man to kiss her hand during a visit to Cardiff ahead of her royal wedding.
But the bride-to-be may have to change tactics slightly because just by marrying Harry she is upsetting centuries of royal protocols and rules – some sensible, some a bit bonkers!
For example royal protocol demands commoners are not allowed to touch members of the royal family.
Which could be seen as making the next generation of royal babies a bit tricky!
The only exception is a handshake – and then only if their hand extended first.

The Queen is often happy to shake hands with the public, while Kate reportedly carries a clutch bag in a bid to avoid the gesture.
A popular actor in her own right, Meghan is used to fans asking for her autograph and has so far happily signed away when fans have asked for her signature.
But this is sure to change when she ties the knot because members of the royal family are permitted from scribbling their signature for fans as part of protocol, as part of an anti-fraud policy.
Meanwhile, the American-born actress will also have to ditch the selfie.
But it appears Meghan may already be getting used to that rule as she reportedly told a couple during a her first official royal outing in Nottingham: “We’re not allowed to do selfies”.
And the same can be said for Meghan’s social media presence.
The US actress has already started to change that part of her life by closing down her beloved lifestyle website, The Tig, in April 2017 and her Instagram page, which had attracted 3million followers.
It is believed Meghan Markle fans will now have to follow her life through the official social media account by Kensignton Palace.
Meghan may be applying to come a British citizenship before she ties the knot, but she won’t be able to vote in the elections.
According to the parliament website: “Although not prohibited by law, it is considered unconstitutional for the Monarch to vote in an election.”
