All the ways Meghan Markle is breaking the royal rules
Many little girls grow up dreaming of becoming princesses (looking at you, Disney), but few ever see those dreams become reality. If you're a little girl in America, the Cinderella fantasy is even more of a long-shot, as America has no monarchy, and the Kardashians are full.
However, young women still clung to the hope of someday experiencing a chance-meeting with one of Britain's two most eligible royal bachelors, William and Harry. So when Prince William married Kate Middleton in 2011, every woman in America took solace in the fact that Harry was still on the market.
Of course, those princess dreams were dashed for good on November 27, 2017, when Prince Charles announced the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. All eyes are on the American actress and humanitarian as she rewrites the classic fairytale with her own undeniable flair — majorly upping her likability factor due to charmingly breaking quite a few royal rules and traditions along the way.
