Even though Meghan Markle is known for breaking royal protocol (even on her wedding day), it seems there is one hard and fast royal fashion rule she isn’t prepared to break — and apparently it’s because of the queen.
According to Vanity Fair, the queen isn’t a fan of a particular type of shoe, and not even Kate Middleton will wear them in front of her (despite doing so at other non-formal events). “The queen isn’t a fan of wedged shoes,” the source says. “She really doesn’t like them and it’s well known among the women in the family.”
Wedges aside, there are a lot of things that the newly minted Duchess of Sussex will have to give up to be a part of the royal family, if she hasn’t already. As previously reported by Now to Love, Meghan has already left behind her beloved Instagram account, as well as her American accent. Not only that, but Meghan has also had to give up eating garlic (this is to avoid having bad breath during important royal events), her acting job, dark nail polish, wearing shorts and tights, and potentially even her US citizenship. Despite sacrificing so much, it seems that Meghan is taking it all in her stride, making royal events and buddying up to her grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, her priority.
And just because she’s taking her new role as a top-tier royal very seriously doesn’t mean that she’s not “completely normal.” English journalist Bryony Gordon, who is said to be quite close with Prince Harry and Meghan, says that Meghan is as “normal” as they come, adding, “She is beautiful, graceful, and lovely.” During their most recent lunch together, they chatted about Meghan’s favorite workouts — “she loves running” — and Meghan even offered Bryony her lunch! “She offered me some of her monkfish,” Gordon says.
That’s one thing Meghan won’t — and should never have to — give up for love is her all-American hospitality. And we don’t think the queen or Prince Harry would make her.
