When Meghan Markle married into the British royal family, it should have been the start of a happy new life for the former actress. However, it’s rumored that Meghan’s behavior since becoming the Duchess of Sussex hasn’t sat well with other family members. In fact, her conduct may have even, it’s said, created a rift between Princes William and Harry. With that in mind, then, the Queen has allegedly taken a drastic step in order to maintain “hierarchy.”
But as the royal family is built on rank, tradition and protocol, it’s perhaps not surprising that the Queen would make such a choice. In any case, rules are followed to the letter when the monarch is around; whenever she enters or leaves a room, for example, everyone is expected to stand up. And while this may all sound a little archaic, that’s what life as a royal is like.
