American actress Meghan Markle was ecstatic when the United Kingdom’s Prince Harry recently proposed to her. Now, however, she may be having second thoughts after learning that she will have to follow certain strict royal rules and traditions.
Freedom Daily reported that in order to marry Prince Harry, Markle must first get the permission of Queen Elizabeth herself. This rule dates back to 1701, when the Act of Settlement was passed to prevent a Catholic from getting the crown. Considering the fact that Markle has been vocal about her disdain for American President Donald Trump and that raunchy photos from her past have leaked, getting the queen’s permission may be more difficult than she initially thought.
The British royal family strives to stay politically neutral and not give away which side they lean on. That’s why it came as bad news to Markle when an interview surfaced in which she slammed Trump during the time he was running for president. Markle was asked in the 2016 interview how then-presidential candidate Trump’s momentum could be slowed down.
“It’s really the moment that I go, we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada,” Markle said. “I mean come on, if that’s reality we are talking about, come on, that is a game changer in terms of how we move in the world here.”
“Yes of course Trump is divisive. Think about just female voters alone,” she continued. “I think it was in 2012, the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points. That’s a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is and so vocal about it, that’s a huge chunk of it. You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary because she’s a woman, but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.”
