Not sure if you heard, but there is some new blood in the royal family. Meghan Markle was born and raised in Los Angeles, and is now the Duchess of Sussex. What seems interesting are several published reports on what she can and cannot do. You would think that a Duchess could do whatever she wants. However, since she is now of royalty, she must deal with a whole new set of rules that she MUST follow. Essentially the old Meghan is gone....

    Go out in public alone

    No shocker here, why would you ever think a member of the Royal Family would go out without a security detail. It's just a fact of life!

    No More Selfies

    Blame this one on her new Grandmother-In-Law, the Queen says no selfies--so now Meghan has to say no to selfies as well.

    Vote

    The Queen and the royal family stay out of British politics as a rule, so Meghan will not be headed to the polls anytime soon.

    Wear Nail Polish

    The Queen doesn't do it--so Meghan will have to abstain.

    Apparently, according to published reports, the Queen finds it vulgar though sometimes a nude shade is allowed.

    Sign Autographs

    Royals just don't do autographs.

    Cannot Eat Shellfish

    Out of fears of possible food poisoning, the Royal Family does not eat shellfish of any kind. So Meghan will have to give that up!

    Go To Bed Before The Queen

     

    You simply don't go to bead until the Queen does. Hopefully this won't be too big of an issue since the Queen is 92, and people over 90 aren't known for being late-night people!
