Meghan Markle has made headlines since joining Prince Harry for the first time. As their relationship progressed from an engagement announcement to the royal wedding, to the big announcement that they were expecting their first child, the headlines not only continued, but at times they seemed to plague Markle even more.
Part of the reason Markle makes headlines so often is that she's very different from the real women who came before her. Not only is she an American, but she was also an actress before her marriage to Prince Harry. While Markle has made significant (and startling) changes in how she acts since becoming a Duchess, some people feel she has a long way to go. It makes people wonder if Meghan Markle is acting too much like a celebrity for the royal family. Here is what we know.
Meghan Markle was a celebrity
One thing people need to realize is that Meghan Markle was a celebrity before she became a duchess. Common sense states that it can not simply change the way it has done things overnight. Markle and Prince Harry are just a couple since the summer of 2016 and have not been married until last year. Over time Markle will undoubtedly be better settled in his new position – but the constant attention of the media is not helping.
Is she also acting as "Hollywood" for the royal family?
Many experts claim that Meghan Markle only acts a lot "Hollywood" or a lot like a celebrity for the royal family. As the world knows, the British royal family has always seemed above reproach and incredibly adequate in its dealings with the outside world. Markle, however, did several things that simply did not fit that image. One example was his baby shower, which some state was in bad taste.
Ann Pasternak, the real author, recently told The Royal Box about it. According to her, "… Meghan has to realize is that she can not live life in the royal family as a Hollywood star and that within the monarchy requires a very different set of behavior. You can not have your freedom and this privilege.
Pasternak went on to explain that it is not so much about acting as an American movie star, but rather that she has become the focus of attention. She went on to explain why this was a problem. "She can not be that international star on a global stage. This is the monarch, the queen … that is what guarantees the continuity of the monarchy. The House of Windsor did incredibly well to be together when many other European royal houses collapsed and did so because they recognize who the main event should be. "
Some think that Markle is a welcome change
Although Meghan Markle may have many pessimists, there are also those who support her because they welcome her as a "breath of fresh air" for an archaic way of doing things. To begin with, Markle does significant charitable work. While the royal family has always been charitable, Markle's focus is very different. She is an avid advocate of women's rights, equality in general, and her efforts are generally more in touch with the working class.
Markle is also very modern when compared to the rest of the royal family. While there is nothing wrong with classic tastes and mannerisms, this does not help connect the British royal family with its audience in the modern world. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, dresses and acts in a much more aligned way with the current mindset. This is one of the main reasons she has won so many fans in such a short time.
