16 Times Meghan Markle Had A Real Hard Time With Royal Life
On paper, marrying into the royal family seems like an actual dream (for some people!). You become ACTUAL ROYALTY. That’s nothing to sneeze at, you know? There are a lot of superficial perks of becoming a royal, like the palaces and tiaras and fashion and fame. Obviously, those aren’t necessarily reasons to marry someone. But we imagine they can make the transition from regular to royal life a little easier. Because let’s be honest – that is a difficult transition. It’s not just going from living privately to living in a fishbowl (although that’s probably one of the hardest changes). It’s going from living a normal life to living one full of rules and expectations and rigidity. You gain a lot, sure. But if you’re someone like Meghan Markle, it seems like that lose so much, too.
Now, Meghan Markle didn’t exactly live a life like yours and ours before she married Prince Harry. She was a successful actress who starred on a hit TV show, after all! But even going from one charmed life to another was a difficult transition, and Meghan hasn’t always had an easy go of royal life. For someone who’s never shied away from exerting her independence, the sudden lack of independence has to be hard. Add to that a whole lot of drama from her estranged family and some nasty coverage from the tabloid media, and you’ve got a recipe for a bumpy ride. Here are some of the times Meghan Markle had a hard time adjusting to the royal life. Luckily, she’s got a good man by her side to help her through.
