Meghan Markle is about to become the first American princess since 1936. Though technically she won’t be referred to as Princess Meghan since she doesn’t have royal blood. (More on those confusing rules, here.)
Nonetheless, she’ll basically be a princess and that is something almost every girl has dreamed of at some point in her lifetime. Meghan is the first one in 81 years to actually get to live it.
But in order to marry her real life prince charming and become fifth in line to the throne, she has to give up quite a few things ranging from her career as an actress to her dog. She has already sold her home in Toronto.
Here Is What Meghan Markle Has To Give Up In Order To Become A Princess
1. Her American citizenship.
Meghan will become a British citizen, which is something most consider a lengthy process. When she does, she will have to give up her US citizenship.
2. Her job as an actress.
Bottom line here, princesses don’t work. They just don’t. She also won’t be living in the United States to film for the show Suits she formerly worked for nor will she be a citizen anymore.
3. Her dog.
Meghan says one of her beloved pups has already moved to the UK but one is too old to make the move. He’s staying behind in Canada with a friend.
4. Her charity work with the United Nations, World Vision Canada and One Young World.
The official response to her ending her charitable work is because she needs to focus on the UK and “start with a clean slate” whatever that means. For starters, she will be as patron of the Royal Foundation.
5. Her political opinion.
Of course she can have one, but she just can’t tell anymore. As a Royal you cannot publicly give a political opinion and even though they are allowed to vote, they don’t.
So what do you think?
What would you be willing to give up to be a princess? Often in life we give up lots of things for the person we fall in love with, maybe a house, maybe just a bad habit… and none of those lead to becoming a princess.
