She has been having a rough transition into royal life as she tries to strike a balance between the protocols she must follow and having a chance to still express who she is, and now, an expert is giving Meghan Markle some advice on how to properly handle things and make them better as she continues to navigate her future as a royal.
“Meghan Markle has been through some glorious phases in her life, from American TV and film actress to UN ambassador before becoming a member of the Royal family with the title of ‘Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex,’” Psychologist Bryony McLardy told Express UK. “She is a natural-born humanitarian, having championed fairness and equality at the age of 11 years old with her letters to Procter and Gamble, civil rights attorney Gloria Allred and the then First Lady, Hilary Clinton. However, along with the change in her professional life over the years, comes her change in her personal too.”
“Admittedly, having been thrown into every media and paparazzi spotlight since the rumors of dating Great Britain’s most eligible bachelor in 2016, the Duchess of Sussex’s transition to become the ‘Ultimate Royal’ hasn’t been easy,” she added. “Meghan knows having not been born a Royal every move she makes will be judges and spoken upon as who she is, someone who has married into the Royal Family and from a completely different world.”
However, she also revealed that if Markle wants to make things easier for herself, she should use the advice she may be able to take from her brother and sister-in-law, Prince William and ate Middleton, and use them as guidance of what she can do to not only avoid scandals, but also help promote the kind of brand she and Prince Harry want to be known for.
“To make things easier throughout this transitional period in her life she must take note of previous royal scandals and even more so how to handle them appropriately for her,” she said. “However, Harry and Meghan had set a precedent as the new type of royal, the ones who engage with the public on the same level and often break tradition, so why stop now.”
“Meghan should use that to her advantage—she should be who she was vocally, before being honored,” she added. “Alongside this, she should take a leaf of Kate and William’s book and embrace some of the royal traditions and etiquette, such as the family photo after the birth of baby Archie. We must be assured she is embracing and taking her position seriously but still being true to herself and the Meghan, Harry fell in love with.”
