Meghan Markle ‘frustrated’ by strict royal rules – finding them ‘difficult to understand’

MEGHAN MARKLE has appeared to adjust to royal life well, bar a few hiccups along the way. However a source has claimed that the Duchess is “frustrated” by strict royal rule and “learning the hard way”.

Meghan Markle, 36, is reportedly getting “frustrated” at the new rules that she’s been introduced to since her marriage to Prince Harry, 33.

The formally independent, self-confessed feminist is having to adapt to a new set of rules that govern her life.

As Duchess of Sussex, Meghan is expected a lot of by the Queen, from how she looks, to her nail colour, to how she behaves in public.

According to a “royal insider”, Meghan is still struggling with the rules and responsibilities of being in the royal family.

Talking to the magazine the source said: “She has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand.

“Rules like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trouser suits, and is often asking Harry why things have to be done in a certain way.”

Regardless of how she feels, the Duchess is making a strong effort to adhere to royal rules and protocol, making an almost seamless transformation from actress to Duchess.

The source continued: “I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it.”

Royal rule the 36-year-old is believed to have to follow include not wearing dark nail polish or having any form of personal social media presence.

Meghan previously ran a passion-project lifestyle blog called The Tig, which she had to shut down in April 2017, when her relationship with Harry became serious.

Meghan is often spotted showing affection to Prince Harry in public and has even been reported to have discussed political affairs.

Having political opinions is something Meghan could be struggling with, being vocal about political affairs in her pre-Harry life but against royal protocol.

It is a rule that was put in place in the 17th century, when the British Royal Family was also banned from voting.

Another thing Meghan could be missing is her former career, with her title of Duchess of Sussex now meaning her only job is a working royal.

On the couple’s recent whistle-stop tour of Dublin Meghan reportedly admitted she misses her former role.

While on the tour Meghan had a conversation with fan Fiona Moore.

Fiona revealed to Hello! magazine: “I’m a fan of Suits and I said to her that I miss it and she said, ‘So do I’.”

Alleviating any possible signs of home sickness, Meghan and Harry are reported to be going on a tour of the US next spring.

According to a US Weekly, “Meghan and Harry want to solidify ties between the U.K. and the US.”
