7 Major Ways Meghan Markle Transformed Royal Family In 2018
Meghan Markle managed to grab a prince. She married Harry in May, and a few months later, she let the world in on her secret, she was pregnant. Markle is expecting this spring a son or daughter who will be seventh in the succession line. As occupied as she has been learning and coping with her new life as the Duchess of Sussex, she has managed to do deal with everything that living as a Royal implies and maybe transform the Royal family. Here are the details.
1. Meghan as herself
She has managed to remain herself throughout this process of becoming part of the Royal family. She has been able to merge her personality, ideals, and values to her royal duties. She has also extended it to the projects she has chosen to endorse.
There was one question that many asked themselves when news of the marriage was announced. Would Meghan be able to maintain what made her herself once she assumed her new role as royalty? It seems that she has been successful.
She has been able to keep her own inside the restrictions that being part of this famous family. The evidence of this can be appreciated on several choices she has made regarding appearances, projects, fashion, and the latest, where she will live with Harry.
2. Shocking homemade delicatessen
Markle did one action that shocked many on her royal tour of Australia. She found the time on the second day of her journey to make homemade banana bread. It was late at night when the Duchess got the idea. Of course, nothing stopped her, not even her pregnancy nor how tired she could have been after her travels.
She used one of her special recipes to make this bread, which she took the next day to her visit to the Australian governor-general’s house. This was never seen before in any stay of the Royal family. Not Prince William, Kate Middleton, or Harry have made an entrance with a homemade offering for a host.
This particular action makes us see how she cares enough to do it. If we had to imagine one of her post in her old blog, it would be something like “Ever find yourself up at 3 A.M. while on a trip, and you just can’t sleep?!?! Here’s a recipe for a fun spin on banana bread that you can make in just 45 minutes, and that could help alleviate some of that jet lag while you’re at it…”
3. First solo project
She made it her mission to include her own skills into her new role. When it came to picking her first project, she chose food, which is one of her passions. She had the opportunity to create a cookbook for which its proceedings were destined to the people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. She also got the help of her friends from Hollywood to endorse the book.
So, the cookbook was stamped as a best-seller. It was an astonishing success where it was appreciated that it involved community and collaboration. Overall, it was an excellent first solo project where she flew solo as the Duchess of Sussex and let everyone know that she is a force to be reckoned with.
4. She still decides
It would seem that Markle still has power over certain aspects of her life, like fashion. She would wear pants if she felt like it. The same can be said about hats, or if she didn’t, she could just be without one. However, she has had to submit to some rules too. She had to shut down her Instagram account, but she has been able to save some photos and move them to the official Palace Instagram.
She also made her presence known in the British Fashion Awards, which was a total surprise for everyone present. She had the opportunity to have her picture taken. This made us realized that she could still rub shoulders with Hollywood’s finest. Consequently, the photo was taken down, and this tells us that the Royal family is set on their way and may take some time to change it.
5. Keeping her connections
It would seem that Meghan has been able to maintain her previous relationships with friends. She has met with Serena Williams, George and Amal Clooney, and Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. She has been able to visit and to be visited by her best friend, Jessica Mulroney. It seems that living in Windsor, away from the palace, makes it easier to get away with certain things. Also, her mother, Doria Ragland, has been able to come spent time with her and maybe, she would stay for a longer time after the baby comes.
6. Her family headache
She has been at odds with her father, Thomas Markle, and her half-sister, Samantha. The situation with Thomas is that he has been speaking ill about Meghan for which he was not in attendance at her wedding. Her sister has been doing something similar but on the Internet through social media. However, Meghan has resorted to not commenting, a strategy that seems to be out of the Royal family’s handbook.
7. Meghan’s energy
There have been reports that speak of a particular personality trait of Meghan, her “up and at ‘em West Coast energy”. It seems that her drive to do her activities no matter what the obstacle might be is becoming characteristic. She is very organized and hardworking. So, her “vibe” is not something the Royal family is used to.
Now, the Royal family is in transition. The Queen is getting ready to leave her throne and pass the mantle to her son, Prince Charles. So comes along Meghan Markle who is what the doctor prescribed to get them going forward. With her in the mix, the most awaited changes can come to fruition. What do you think about Meghan injecting new blood to the family? We would love to read your comments in the section below and don’t forget to share it with all your royalist friends. Until next time!
