Meghan Markle Doesn't Realize the Sacrifice She Made by Marrying Prince Harry, Expert Claims

Meghan Markle was a loud and proud feminist before getting married into the royal family and sacrificing her individuality to live under the scrutiny of the Queen.

According to one expert, she did not fully understand the sacrifice required from her when she accepted Prince Harry's proposal and is now a virtual prisoner of British custom and tradition.

While it is plain to see that Prince Harry and his bride are in love, with a new baby on the way as well, an expert warns that Markle will eventually lose her sparkle as she becomes more and more just a pawn of the royal family.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️

Royal Correspondent Helen Kirwan Taylor has made her thoughts on the matter clear in the documentary "Meghan Markle: The First 100 Days," saying

"I think, at the beginning, every event is exciting because she has never done them before. In two years time when she is being rolled out to some godforsaken dark wet city in freezing conditions, I think she is going to wonder why she agreed to this."

The Duchess of Sussex has had a wonderful first year of marriage, traveling the world at her husband's side and managing to support several charities along the way.

The Duchess has been harangued by the media for her messy buns; and for going-without-a-hat to one event but wearing a hat to Wimbledon, for wearing an off-the-shoulder dress to one ceremony and a pantsuit to another.

Expecting their first child at the age of thirty-seven, a baby that will be seventh in line to the throne will be an exciting adventure for the previously divorced "Suits" actress.

The Duke of Sussex has proudly been patron of UK based organization Well Child since 2007. Over 100,000 children and young people are living with serious illness or exceptional health needs across the UK. Many spend months, even years in hospital vs at home because there is no support enabling them to leave. Well Child’s vision is for every child and young person living with serious health needs to have the best chance to thrive properly supported at home with their families. Both the Duke and Duchess attended the Well Child Awards in the winter of 2018, supporting the incredible families and children who benefit from the Well Child programs. For those who have inquired, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex ask that you consider supporting @wellchild and three other select charities in lieu of sending baby gifts for their upcoming arrival. Thank you for the support and kindness! Photos via: @wellchild #worldhealthday

It must all seem like a dream come true for the American, however, other royal experts have not predicted smooth sailing for the couple. Author Duncan Larcombe refers to Meghan as a "prisoner" of the royal family, saying:

"I don’t think even Meghan could have really comprehended the scale of the sacrifice she was making by saying 'I do'."

Markle has broken all sorts of protocols since joining the royal family for seemingly arbitrary things for women in the 21st century, like the color of her nail polish, revealing bared legs in a skirt, and taking her shoes off in public.

The Duchess has been harangued by the media for her messy buns; and for going-without-a-hat to one event but wearing a hat to Wimbledon, for wearing an off-the-shoulder dress to one ceremony and a pantsuit to another.

It seems, for an outsider, that she can never win. No matter what she does, she's always either pushing the envelope purposely or missing the mark altogether due to ignorance or lack of proper guidance.

But the biggest taboo of the century will be her choice of maternity hospital as conflicting reports say the mum-to-be might opt to break a four-decade royal tradition by not giving birth in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital.

The couple may settle for a maternity unit closer to their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, and reportedly might also not be doing the traditional "press meets baby" photoshoot on the steps like Princess Diana and Duchess Kate have done.
