It seems that it’s not just Donald Trump who’s getting his hand flicked; sadly Meghan may have experienced the same ….Though I can positively say that this happened due to no trouble in paradise at all! Even though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle never shied away from public displays of affection during their engagement; but it seems that the couple have to adapt themselves to the more traditional way of things.
During the Young Leaders Reception held at Buckingham Palace, Prince Harry has been seen to avoid, or worse, reject Meghan’s attempt at holding his hand. Alas, the media is too quick not to take notice of such occurrences…! But we believe that this was Prince Harry’s way of trying inconspicuously to remind Meghan of royal etiquette though unfortunately his attempts at discretion clearly failed.
Though it is hard to discern in the video that went around; you could see Meghan had the intention of holding hands but it could be seen that she possibly held herself back at the same time that Prince Harry clasped his hands together. Even though there is no written royal rule about this but it seems that the royal family are following in the queen’s lead as she never held her husband’s hand in public. And even though William and Kate are following this rule to the dot but there is no shortage of evidence as to the close nature of their relationship though they don’t feel compelled to demonstrate it publicly.
Meghan is obviously trying her best to conform to royal etiquette though she has been criticised on more than one occasion to break royal protocol either with her choice of dress, hairstyle, or even for crossing her legs in public while out with the Queen. Being an American she must find it difficult to restrain herself but given the wonderful actress that she was we feel she should get the hang of things very soon.
