All The Things Meghan Markle Can No Longer Do Now That She’s A Royal

When actress Meghan Markle married British royal Prince Harry on May 19, 2018, it was like a fairy tale brought to life. This all-American actress was going to become a princess—after a fashionable wedding and much public ado, of course. But that crown doesn't come without a price.

While the newly minted Duchess of Sussex might be enjoying her glow up, the truth is that becoming royalty isn't all it's cracked up to be. There are strict rules to follow, and some of them are pretty outrageous! Here's exactly what the newest royal isn't allowed to do anymore...

1. She can't wear whatever she likes: In her engagement photos, Meghan Markle wore a stunning gown that was almost totally sheer. Unfortunately, the royal family must adhere to a strict and conservative style of dress, so while see-through might work on the runway, it doesn't make the cut for the Queen.
2. She can't kiss in public: Newlyweds are usually all about the PDA, and while it isn't technically forbidden, the Queen herself has a serious stance against too much physical affection in public. It's hands-off for Harry and Meghan when they are out and about now!
3. She can't play Monopoly: That's right, the Duchess of Sussex won't be allowed to play everyone's favorite rainy-day board game! Why? Because the Queen forbids it, claiming that the game is just "too vicious."
4. She can't sign autographs: As a prominent TV actress, Meghan was no doubt used to signing autographs for fans, but that stops now. Members of the royal family are not allowed to sign autographs in case someone tries to forge their signatures elsewhere...
