Marrying a prince might seem like a dream, but Meghan Markle will be leaving a great part of who she is behind for the sake of the Royal Family.


The Royal Wedding, which will take place on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor, will be the last step that the former actress will take to fully achieve her new status.

But to be accepted, and in order to keep the monarchs' reputation intact, Markle shall abandon her own name, as well as her individual traits and social life, as reported by Closer Weekly.

Markle's birth name is Rachel Meghan Markle, but as soon as she says 'I do', she will be officially known as Rachel Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor.


As a free-spirited woman, the 36-year-old always enjoyed having fun. Whether it was going to a party or to the famous Fashion Week, she used to be there to have the time of her life and register it all on her phone.

Ever since she became engaged to Prince Harry, her social media account has been shut down, as well as her social life. She will no longer be able to attend such events, and that includes meeting her friends or going on trips with them.


In the past, Markle's Instagram page used to be full of photos and videos of dream destinations, glasses of Tignanello, her favorite red wine, and group photos, but those days are over.

Just like the rest of the royals, she won't be allowed to use social media, and her style has been altered to match her status. No longer will the former Suits actress be able to wear dark nails, shorts, tights, cleavages nor fake fur vests.


Markle's acting career is gone, and soon her U.S. citizenship will follow the same path so she can become a true UK citizen. She won't have permission to take a political stance and her opinions must be carefully weighted.

Finally, her California slang won't be tolerated. The soon-to-be bride shall attend elocution and history classes to be up to Queen Elizabeth's standards, proving that there is more to being a royal than one would believe.
