Cupid's Pulse Article: Why Celebrity Couple Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Are Ignoring Royal RulesCupid's Pulse Article: Why Celebrity Couple Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Are Ignoring Royal Rules

By Haley Lerner

In celebrity news, royal celebrity couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are apparently ignoring some big royal rules. A source told People that Meghan “has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand, 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 a certain way. I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it.” It appears Meghan is willing to challenge some of the rules of the monarchy, such as public displays of affection. According to, Meghan held on tightly to Harry when they made their first public appearance at the 2017 Invictus Games. Meghan has also made it clear she’s not afraid to voice her political opinions, proclaiming that she is proud to be a woman and a feminist on her page of the official British monarchy website. She also voiced her opinions at the first-ever Royal Foundation Forum this past winter, “I hear a lot of people speaking about girls’ empowerment and women’s empowerment; you will hear people saying they are helping women find their voices. I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find their voices, they need to be empowered to use it and people need to be urged to listen. I think right now in the climate we’re seeing with so many campaigns, with #MeToo and Time’s Up, there’s no better time than to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them—men included in that.” Meghan also hasn’t shied away from more modest clothing, opting to bear a sliver of her shoulder at her Trooping of Colour debut in June and often wearing suits instead of only wearing the traditional attire of a skirt or dress. Meghan and Harry also chose to make personal decisions regarding their wedding in May. The couple personalized their wedding vows, had a lemon elderflower cake instead of a traditional fruitcake and chose Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, a Chicago native and the first black presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, to deliver a sermon on their special day.

This royal celebrity couple isn’t all about the royal rules. What are some ways to define your own path as a couple?
