If the reports are accurate, Baby Sussex will welcome the world in late April or early May. The world stands on needles and needles waiting to catch a glimpse of the new king. While all announcements of the royal baby receive full attention, this one is different here.
Meghan Markle has fascinated people from the beginning. Prince Harry has broken the royal traditions from the beginning, so many people wonder what else will change.
While Kate Middleton has made every effort to adhere to the traditions, Markle seems to be less conservative. It is this property that has probably caught the attention of Prince Harry. So, what royal rules can we assume that Megan Markle will break after the birth of Baby Sussex?
The Rules Prince Harry has broken with Meghan Markle
The most obvious royal rule or tradition that Prince Harry broke when he began his relationship with Markle is her status. She was not from a royal bloodline or from a distinguished family like Kate Middleton. She was an American actress. According to Marie Claire, this breaks the mold for the royal family in many ways.
Apart from being American, she was previously married and divorced. The law prohibiting royal houses from marrying divorced persons has been changed, making it legal. However, it is still frowned upon in many circles. Not that this seems to matter to any of them.
Believe it or not, there are rules against holding royal pairs in public. This royal rule may seem completely alien to ordinary people, but it does exist. Not that we blame Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but they definitely break this royal rule.
Royal Rules Meghan Markle has broken so far
There are very specific rules that royal women should follow when pregnant. While Meghan Markle did her best to obey most of them, she violated some royal rules.
At first she decided on a baby shower. For most American women, a baby shower is a right of passage. For royals it has a bad taste. The idea that a member of the royal family would pour out and pour out presents, is traditionally out of the question. Not for Markle, she had showered in New York.
Another rule she has deceived is that pregnant queens are not allowed to travel abroad. In addition to flying to New York for her baby shower, she accompanied her husband several times on royal missions abroad, even though she was pregnant at the time.
There are also strict rules about what to wear as expected. Like Kate Middleton in her pregnancies, Markle should wear loose clothing and tight shoes and stay conservatively covered. We've already seen how Markle broke all these wardrobe rules and wears them the way he feels comfortable.
Rules Meghan Markle will break much with American vs. birth of Baby Sussex. to do English traditions. For starters, Markle has suggested that she wants a natural home birth. If that happens, she will not have her baby in the same hospital where the royal women have been for decades.
When Markle decides to give birth at home, she is unlikely to pose outside the maternity ward, like Kate Middleton and Princess Diana in front of her. She was worried about the stress of seeing a perfect picture so soon after giving birth. She would rather spend this time with her bundle of joy.
When she speaks of her bundle of joy, she considers breaking the royal rules for the name choice. According to StyleCaster, Markle and Prince think Harry about naming the baby Diana if possible. Traditionally, royal babies are named after former British monarchs.
Of all the kings we've seen, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the most independent. They seem to have made it their goal to change things and pave the way for more modern traditions. And we can not wait to see what happens when Baby Sussex arrives.
