Royal Central‘s Deputy Editor, Jamie Samhan gives her opinion on why Meghan Markle will be the best addition to the Royal Family.
Fresh blood always gets the excitement surrounding the royal family up. There is no question that the addition of Meghan Markle will do the same. However, Meghan will bring a different type of light the British Royal Family has been long missing.
Some may argue that one of the best traits of the British Monarchy is it’s air of mystery, being slightly above the rest of us because, without that illusion, what is the point?
Meghan will bring a relatability that in this day and age they need. The actress and humanitarian has made a life for herself long before her prince charming waltzed into her life.
In the day of modern feminism, where a woman can have it all, Meghan proves that point over and over again.
Kate is the child your parents wish you would be, polished and prim, Meghan is the girl we all know we could be. As much as I adore Kate, I see her in her perfect ensembles with her well-dressed children, and I wonder why I am so far off that? Meghan still always looks great, but in a manner where I know I could pop down to the local boutique and be able to pull off a similar look. She is in one word- realistic.

Same as any two people on the street, Meghan and Kate are two different people with different lives and should not be compared. Still, Meghan’s training with the media through her career has taught her how to behave for the camera. A PR dream, the photographers are drawn to her, and she will grace the covers of countless magazines much in the same way Diana did making us believe she was just like the rest of us.
As his predecessors have done, Prince Charles knows that in order to keep the monarchy going he must change with the time. He has already made it known that when he is Sovereign, he will run a slimmed-down version. The version will include Meghan Markle, who will shine next to Prince Harry as they delight royal fans around the world making one less thing Prince Charles will have to worry about.
