The royal rules do get out of hand sometimes. And given you’re a literal foreigner to this age-old landed aristocracy of Great Britain, it is only natural to feel the stint of the stringent protocols. This was exactly what happened in the case of the now Duchess, Meghan Markle.

What were the protocols all about?
Further revealing to the outlet, he claimed that no one who came from a foreign land was exempted from the same. Princess Diana and King Charles too underwent the same royale procedure to become immune to the part and parcel of the job of being a royal. It was all about how to handle media without close protection and adapting to the round-the-clock security having some uncomfortable restrictions on the freedom of movement.
“She won’t be able to come and go as freely as she would if she was a normal person,” explains Bomberg. He further explained how every occasional outing of the Duchess was to come under surveillance. From a simple doctor’s appointment to attending a friend’s party would have been strictly monitored by the Palace going forward.
