She may be the new Duchess of Sussex, but Meghan Markle is one of the most casual and accessible members of the royal family! From her good-natured humor to her wonderful fashion ability, Meghan is just like us in many ways than most realize.
Although it may very well be true, the majority of us are not married to a prince or live in a palace, it does not prevent us from relating to Meghan in more ways than one. So, what are some of the ways Meghan Markle is like the rest of us?
Meghan Markle grocery stores for herself and Harry
Now that Meghan is a member of Windsor House, she surely has people to cater to her every whim. But Meghan is often seen at Whole Foods in Kensington, about a mile from the castle, buying groceries to prepare wonderful meals for himself and Prince Harry. In addition, she goes away from the castle to the store, often seen with berries and her husband's favorite baseball hat.
Meghan holds Harry's hand
Most kings, especially Prince William and Kate Middleton, refrain from showing love at the same time in general. Therefore, it was so surprising that Kate put her hand on her husband's knee on Princess Eugenie's wedding, a simple move that we don't usually see from her! But Meghan is never shy about holding Harry's hand even when the flashbulbs go out. Sometimes she will adorably tie her arm in his other times, she will lock one of her hands with both of her. There are also times when Meghan and Harry will put their arms around each other or participate in a quick hug. What could be better than that?
She is Independent
Before ever meeting Prince Harry, Meghan was a strong and independent woman, and it has not changed since becoming a royal family member. Most recently, she showed it by going to New York single days to spend time with close friends and enjoying her baby shower. Like royal fans, Meghan thinks about taking the initiative, and we admire her even more for that!
Meghan talks about her pregnancy
Royals before her, including Kate Middleton, did not usually talk about their pregnancies with the public. They kept their bubbles covered, and while they might have answered a vague question or two, they weren't so much open about the subject. Meghan, on the other hand, can often be seen as rocking her bump and talking about her upcoming arrival with royal fans. She has received suggestions for child names and told how far she is in pregnancy. How relable is that?
She usually dress temporarily
Meghan clearly understands that it is a royal does not always mean that you get everything dressed! She has famously gone into pants, maxi dresses and even ripped jeans. Meghan can have a wardrobe full of designer coats and access to one of the most impressive jewelry collections in the world, but that doesn't mean she doesn't enjoy the occasional comfortable outfit just like the rest of us.
Although Meghan Markle has the honor of being known as "Her Royal Highness", deep down, she is just like the rest of us! Meghan is a down to earth, relational person who certainly never hesitates to let her personality shine through. Whether it's her choice of business, clothing style or topic in her conversations, Meghan is convinced that she will always be true to who she is, which is just one of the reasons she is so loved by fans all over the world !
