After the popular Prince Harry and the "Suits" actress Meghan Markle announced their engagement, the world went into overdrive into finding out her history and who she actually is. While the two lovebirds are still making plans for their wedding, which is coming up in May, the actress has already broken many Royal rules. It is true that being a princess is the dream of every girl, especially if you are a fan of Disney movies, but very few people know that there are lots of rules in the royal family. However, it seems the actress has chosen to do things her own way, by breaking most of these rules.

Possibly, when Meghan fully becomes a member of the royal family, she will be briefed on how to live her life like a royal. Here are some rules the suit actress has broken already. A report by Business insider provided most of the information used in this article.

1. Her Vanity Fair Cover

The members of the royal family are not allowed to talk to the publication, but Meghan Markle broke this rule by talking to the publication about her relationship with Prince Harry. In her speech, she revealed that she and Prince Harry are two happy people who are in love. She added that they secretly dated for six months before it became news. The Royals were so upset, not because she graced the magazine cover, but because of her interview.

2. Personal display of affection

The queen is not impressed with the famous Prince Harry and Meghan’s display of affection in public. Unlike Prince William and his wife Kate, who barely touch each other in public, Harry and Meghan are fond of holding hands together in public. PDA in public is against the royal rules.

3. They are getting married in May

The late great monarch, Queen Victoria, believed that May wasn’t an appropriate month to get married. She believed that those who marry in May regret the day. However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen to tie the knot in May. The modern royals want to do their things their own way, even though the elder royals are frowning at their decision.

4. She didn’t wear pantyhose

Wearing pantyhose is a tradition in the royal family. Surprisingly, the "Suits" actress appeared bare legged in the public when she and Prince Harry came to announce their engagement. Ignoring the pantyhose policy is one of the ridiculous rules she has broken so far. Flaunting her bare legs is against an age-old royal tradition.

5. She is not an Anglican

For centuries, it is an abomination for royals to marry a Roman Catholic. Possibly, the actress might be a Roman Catholic, since she attended an all-girls’ Catholic high school in Los Angeles. This is just an assumption. It has not yet been confirmed since Meghan has never discussed her religion openly.

6. Meghan is a divorcee

In the past, members of the royal family are not allowed to marry a divorcee. Although Prince Harry’s father, Charles, married a divorcee, they only had a civil ceremony. The popular Prince Harry will be the first royal to wed a divorcee in a church. According to Deadline, Meghan’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson is making a show about a man who has to share custody of his child after his former wife marries into the British Royal Family.

7. Wearing ripped jeans and messy bun

Wearing ripped jeans and having messy buns are unroyal and forbidden in the royal family. Unlike the other female royals who generally put their hair together, Meghan decided to turn a few heads by wearing a nonchalantly messed bun.

According to royal etiquette, jeans are very casual, and you will barely see royals wearing them.

8. Wearing sheer dress and mismatched earrings

The star actress also broke the royal rules by wearing a sheer dress. The see-through gold leaf embroidered black dress she wore in her official engagement photos with the prince got a lot of reactions from many traditionalists. Also, she wore a mismatched earring at an official engagement in Wales. Even to the real world, this is a taboo.
