Considering all of the royal drama of late, it’s safe to say that Meghan Markle has seen more than a few major changes to her life. In fact, her world presumably turned upside down after marrying Prince Harry. But there has recently been one aspect of the former actress’ life that has come under particularly close scrutiny – and it’s sparked nothing short of a media frenzy.
Mind you, Meghan’s marriage to Prince Harry had already created a number of firsts for the royal family. The Duchess of Sussex is the first British royal from the U.S. since the 1930s, for instance, and she’s a rare woman of color for the country’s monarchy. And although she’s not the first divorcee to have graced British royalty – that honor belongs to Wallis Simpson – it’s certainly unusual. It’s so out of the ordinary, in fact, that before Harry and Meghan’s wedding there was even speculation that the Queen might not attend the nuptials.
