Honestly, it's not easy being Meghan Markle. Since being married, she's reportedly had to take on a whole host of royal rules and regulations — and the scrutiny around any "breaking" of those rules — but she's done so with aplomb. She's reportedly had to relearn how to walk, stand, eat, dress — and she's not complaining. Since marrying Prince Harry, her life has totally changed and it comes with the territory. But there are two other young female royals who seem to be given a much wider birth. In fact, looking at Meghan Markle alongside Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie reveals some rather different patterns of behaviour.
So what accounts for the difference? Perhaps it's because the Princesses are so much more removed from the throne: Beatrice is eighth and Eugenie is ninth in line, while Prince Harry is sixth in line. It could also be because of who their parents are. Historically there has been less of a spotlight on the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, than the sons of Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales. That pattern has continued as they've grown older, so perhaps the distance afford the sisters more flexibility. Either way, here behold five rules Princess Eugenie & Princess Beatrice don't follow that Meghan is reportedly expected to.
