Being a normal American actress who landed a hot royal like Prince Harry might seem like a perpetual dream of afternoon champagne and corgi butlers, but Duchess Meghan has learned fast that it’s also a bureaucratic nightmare filled with stuffy rules and formalities. No bare shoulders! No touching! Never not be wearing pantyhose! According to a source that spoke with People magazine, Meghan is having a hard time accepting some of the more outdated rules.
Meghan is 60 days into her life as a career waver, and second on her list of annoyances (right underneath the words Dad Who Won’t Sod Off) are certain royal no-nos. The source says that Meghan has found certain rules “difficult to understand.” For example, apparently Meghan doesn’t understand why THE QUEEN prefers Royal women in dresses or skirts instead of pants or suits. And she’s been treating Prince Harry like a Royal Ask Jeeves to find out why.
[She’s] often asking Harry why things have to be done in 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,” the source adds.
That doesn’t mean Meghan is failing as a Duchess. Another source tells People that Harry has been “steering her, helping her” as she navigates all the rules. Bu another rule Meghan doesn’t quite understand is the one where Royals aren’t supposed to talk about political stuff. Like when she engaged in a conversation about abortion last week during her trip to Ireland. Royal family historical biographer Robert Lacey tells People that Royals already know they’re to keep the conversation about hats and cakes and shit, and that Meghan is still “learning the hard way” that you can’t trust anyone outside the inner circle.
Meghan’s a Royal Family Barbie Doll now, and as such, she’s got to accept the accessories and she comes with. Hat, jacket, hairbrush, sensible purse with matching pumps – basically the Day portion of the Day-To-Night ensemble. And I know the Royal family doesn’t have to worry about Meghan trading in a modest skirt for a raunchy set of cut-off jean shorts. But even if she did, she’s got to understand her place on the food chain. If anyone is going to be the first to break Royal protocol with their ass cheeks hanging out of the back of some short-shorts, it should be THE QUEEN. She’s the oldest and she’s put in decades of time with boring skirts and pantyhose. It’s only fair that she be the first to strut out of Buckingham Palace in hoochie couture.
