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 she became the Duchess of Sussex hasn’t sat well with other family members. In fact, it’s been said that her conduct may have even 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 comes into or leaves a room, for example, everyone else in the vicinity is expected to stand up. And while this may all sound a little archaic, it’s broadly what life as a royal is like.
