Will Meghan Markle change the public’s access to the Royal Family?

All bets are on that Prince Harry will tie the knot, or at least pop the question, to his girlfriend, Meghan Markle in 2017. Yet, she is a most unconventional addition to the British Royal Family.

Currently, Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace run Twitter accounts on behalf of the Senior members of the family and only tweet out pictures and information from official events. Many have suggested that to keep current and in popularity with today’s youth, they should bring some more light to what goes on behind closed doors such as other European royalty.

Queen Rania of Jordan is a pro at this, she runs she own Twitter and is very active.  Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan follows in her footsteps. Princess Tessy of Luxembourg and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway both use Instagram with Mette-Marit a fan of Twitter, too.  Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau is frequently on Twitter, and Princess Madeleine is often on Facebook sharing pictures of her life in London and pictures of her children.

It would be unheard of to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posting an impromptu picture of Prince George and Princess Charlotte on Instagram.

Miss Markle is different, though. A US actress who runs her own lifestyle blog, The Tig. She has had to build a following of fans to raise her public appearance and ‘brand’ to casting directors. She knows all eyes are on her and carefully teases her fans with pictures and insight into her relationship with Prince Harry.

Before the relationship was confirmed, Miss Markle sent out a picture of two bananas spooning with the caption “Sleep tight xx” and right before Prince Harry returned from his Caribbean tour, a picture of her dog in a Union Jack sweater.

The Tig has also taunted the public. After news broke of Prince Harry and Meghan’s trip to Norway to see the Northern Lights, the blog posted a picture on Instagram of a snow covered cabin. The picture was neither taken by one of the two or in Norway (California to be exact), but it still sent users buzzing.

So the question comes, will Miss Markle continue her somewhat cheeky posts about her life once (or if) she marries Harry? International royals who have taken to social media all follow in the realms of keeping their posts classy, something Miss Markle has shown she has no problem with. Rising above the criticism of the press and tweeting out inspirational quotes about self-love.

I doubt we will see the Duchess of Cambridge following suit, but I can see Miss Markle keeping up with her glimpses into royal life.

Would you like to see more inside views of the British Royal Family or should they keep their secrecy? Let us know in the comments:

    I hope the Royal family members stop Prince Harry from making a big mistake marrying this woman who would have been the most inappropriate addition to the Royal family.
    She may be a good choice for someone else but definitely NOT for a British Prince.

    • Alistar Sheridan

      Yes she has been an actress in some very lewd and sexual scenes in films. She does not behave properly and polity as THE Duchess of Cambridge does and did before the wedding. She is an american and Harry has been known to be a playboy type. but I most certainly agree. I was hoping he would marry Lady Kitty Spencer

    I just hope that other Royals, such as Beatrice and Eugenie, don’t make negative comments about Meghan’s brother, mother or other family members. We have all witnessed the daily onslaught of negative (hateful) comments directed toward Kate and her mother, so I hope none of that happens with the future bride.

    It shouldn’t be a problem for her to keep her blog or her social media accounts active should she marry Prince Harry. She isn’t expected to be come Queen what with the line of succession secured with George and Charlotte. She will of course, need to keep her posts apolitical, with no hints of a personal opinion on events that may impinge on the constitutional role of the Monarchy.

    The Royal Family is entitled to privacy. Just like any other human. It would be up to the individual to put out any private information they wish the public to know.

  • Josh Sevier

    Markel is pathetic.

  • QuietStorm

    I hear they broke up since December and the media is making it all up. He can’t have made such an idiot statement then go oops sorry it didn’t last. He’d look like an idiot, but he’s a dimwitted so not far off.

  • Sarah Jonestein

    Meghan and Prince Harry make a lovely and a
    perfect couple. I’m very happy to see prince Harry with a well
    educated, intelligent, beautiful and accomplished young lady he really
    loves. This royal romance is sending a powerful message in the world and
    is bringing people, countries and continents closer together, making
    the royal family and UK regain international interests and consideration
    in different areas of international relations. Prince Harry and Meghan
    are becoming Ambassadors of a modern UK monarchy. Wishing them all be
    best for their love and for the future life together. Prince Harry and
    Meghan, you are blessed! A royal romance which warms the hearts of
    millions of people around the world.We are waiting for your engagement…..
