Meghan Markle is a rule breaker!
It was recently reported the new Duchess is working hard at getting the hang of certain Royal etiquette. But apparently one area she isn’t compromising? PDA!
According to royal photographer Mark Stewart, Meghan and Prince Harry have been wantonly and unrepentantly crossing the line in front of everyone:
“They are not afraid to hold hands. They don’t mind showing their emotions.”
Hand holding! In public! A national scandal! LOLz!
For real though, it’s apparently fairly naughty by Royal standards. But it’s not stopping them! Former palace spokesman Dickie Arbiter told People:
“Meghan is used to being touchy-feely, and Harry is the same. Harry has always been tactile.”
Yes, Dickie, we all saw the Vegas photos. LOLz!
Thankfully, it seems their affection is winning everyone over. Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier explained:
“While Prince Harry and Meghan holding hands is atypical for royal engagements, it is a seemingly welcomed gesture to show unity and celebration of their engagement period. There is no protocol that says they can not show affection on official engagements, and this gesture makes them relatable and lovable to the public.
“Meghan and Prince Harry holding hands at a royal engagement is a refreshingly modern approach to their new role both as a couple and as representatives of the royal family.”
Sounds like it’s all working out fine. Good thing, because you’d need a LOT of those Royal guards if you wanted to pry newlyweds apart!
