Here’s what Meghan Markle has said about being married to Prince Harry
As the newest member of the royal family, Meghan Markle is duty bound to follow the protocols of Kensington Palace. This means that she is now unable to take selfies, vote, or you know, cross her legs whilst sitting. She is purportedly undergoing six months of "duchess training" with the Queen's assistant private secretary, Samantha Cohen, and by the looks of it, she's already nailing it.
The newly appointed Duchess of Sussex handled her first official solo event with aplomb this past Thursday, and she also opened up about how married life has been treating her and Prince Harry so far...
Accompanying the Queen to Cheshire on the royal train, Meghan Markle stunned in a Givenchy dress which was crafted by her wedding gown designer, Clare Waight Keller. Her first royal event sans her husband, Prince Harry, involved several important engagements: Markle opened the Mersey Gateway Bridge in Cheshire, opened the Storyhouse Theatre in Chester, and attended a lunch at Chester Town Hall - all alongside the Queen herself.
Indeed, the fact that Meghan is attending these events without her husband, and so soon after their wedding, shows that the Queen and Kensington Palace deems Markle to be a capable member of the family, whom they trust to make official visits with.
The Duchess of Sussex was also asked about Prince Harry during the trip, and she had the most perfect response. According to the Daily Mail's royal correspondent, Rebecca English, Markle was asked about how the first few weeks of marriage were going, and she revealed that he is the "best husband ever".
I mean, is anyone surprised?
"Prince Harry is the “best husband ever” Meghan Markle proclaimed with a smile today," English wrote on Twitter. She told well-wishers married life was ‘wonderful’, saying: ‘I’m really enjoying it. He’s the best husband ever.’ All together now, ah!"
While Markle has got the go-ahead to accompany the Queen to official royal engagements, she must make sure to stay away from wedged shoes, if she wants to keep being invited back.
Although being a member of the royal family means that you have the world's best fashion designers at your disposal, there are some fashion rules that Meghan Markle and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton have to follow. For example, there is one type of shoe that both Duchesses will never wear around the Queen.
Whilst Middleton has been spotted wearing navy and camel coloured wedges at public outings, strangely she's never worn them while the Queen is around. According to Vanity Fair, the 91-year-old monarch does not like the look of wedges. "The Queen isn't a fan of wedged shoes," a source told the publication. "She really doesn't like them and it's well known among the women in the family." Markle has to follow the same royal fashion rules, and consequently, she will also have to avoid wedges when attending outings with the Queen.
Well, the more you know, eh?
