Mia Thermopolis Renaldi’s transformation has got nothing on Meghan Markle’s now that she’s married to Prince Harry! (Photo: Instagram)
No more personal social media. With 350k followers in Twitter and 1.9 million on Instagram, Meghan deleted her social media shortly after her engagement. No more selfies for Meg! (Photo: WENN)
She’s given up her career. Markle is an accomplished actor, philanthropist, blogger, and fashion designer. And although the Crown loves ambitious partners for royals, she is now exclusively focused on royal pursuits. So long, Rachel Zane! (Photo: WENN)
Meghan will become an British citizen. She’ll have to go through the same process as anyone else—apply for a family visa, marry within six months of arriving in the country. After five years, she can be granted permanent residency and apply for citizenship by taking a test. (Photo: WENN)
She won’t be voting in British elections—or American, for that matter. The royal family is supposed to stay politically neutral, and it would be seen as unconstitutional if the Monarch voted in an election. (Photo: WENN)
Meghan was reportedly baptized in a secret ceremony in March. While she did not need to become Anglican in order to marry into the family, she reportedly chose to do it out of respect for the Queen, the head of the Church of England. (Photo: WENN)
Meghan Markle will no longer just be Meghan, Meg, or Rachel from “Suits.” From now on, SHE will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Harry of Wale or Duchess of Sussex as granted by the Queen. (Photo: WENN)
She can NEVER play Monopoly at home. Prince Andrew banned Monopoly with the Royal Family in 2008 because apparently it got “too vicious”. Sorry, Markle, you’ll have to stick with charades. (Photo: WENN)
Meghan will have to wear a lot more hats. American women don’t often wear hats unless they’re at the Kentucky Derby. For the women of the royal family, no formal look is complete without a hat to top it off. (Photo: WENN)
Meghan’s life before Prince Charming was nothing to scoff at: But, of course, marrying into the family has guaranteed that she’ll live more comfortably than she can imagine. It’s unclear what budget she’d have, but it’s pretty safe to assume Harry could spare some of his estimated $40 million. (Photo: Instagram)
Every woman prepares for big changes when she marries as guy—new house, new family, new life. But when you’re marrying a freaking prince, let’s just say nothing will ever be the same.
Meghan Markle’s roller coaster ride to the aisle started way before we even knew she was engaged to the ginger Prince, and it will certainly will continue now that she’s officially married to the royal family.
From how she dresses to what board game she plays (yep—for real), the now Duchess of Sussex will have to adopt a whole new (royal) way of life.
Though some of these are small changes, when combined, they make for an entirely new way of living one’s life. However, when that includes a castle, a rich Prince Charming, and a real-life Cinderella story, those massive alterations suddenly seem easy enough to comply with.
Here are some of the major ways Meg’s life has been and will continued to be changed now that she and Prince Harry have tied the royal knot. Mia Thermopolis Renaldi’s transformation has got nothing on Meghan Markle’s!
