Though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are a relatively new couple, the two have totally thrown out the royal rule book. Prince Harry and his American fiancée are changing things up in more ways than you might think. From getting married on a weekend in May (cue the gasps) to not being afraid to show a lot of PDA, Meghan is out to prove she's not going to be a traditional bride.
So what does this mean for the British royal family? In some ways, the addition of Meghan — who in the past would have been a very unconventional British royal — is shaking things up at Buckingham Palace. Queen Elizabeth and the other royals of her generation are often thought of as cold and reserved — and, like Princess Diana, Meghan is a departure from that. While Harry is sure Meghan and his mother would have been best of friends, it's obvious that Meghan's lively and loving spirit — like Diana's — will do much to endear her to the British public.
In the future, we can only hope to see Prince Harry and Meghan breaking more royal rules together; so far, it's been fun to watch! And once the pair has said "I do," your guess is as good as ours as to what new and exciting traditions of their own they'll decide to start.
