Many aspects of Meghan Markle's life have changed since she became part of the British royal family. She has been urged to violate the protocol to close a car door behind her ( gasp! ), something she should not do as a member of the royal family. But what hasn't changed about Markle's life? We examine aspects of Markle's life that have remained the same forward.
What has changed about Meghan Markle's life since joining the royal family
Before breaking down what has not changed for Markle, we go over what has changed . The first and most obvious part of Markle's life that has changed is that she is now a duchess instead of an actress.
Second, her address has changed. Markle, a native of California, recently lived in the Canadian city of Toronto before selling her home there and moving to London to live with her husband, Prince Harry.
Now let's break down what didn't have changed in Markle's life since she became royal.
Markle Healthy Lifestyle Is Not Changed
Markle is known for his healthy eating habits of regular fitness routine. A devoted yogi, Markle now has a studio in his home, Frogmore Cottage, thanks to recent renovations. When the actor-to-tour duchess started dancing Prince Harry, her healthy lifestyle inspired him to become healthier.
"We all ribbed him a little because he suddenly became super healthy. Of course, it was dancing Meghan who started his health drive," one of Princess Harry's friends told the author Katie Nicholl in his book, Harry: Life, Loss and Love .
Moving to another continent did not interfere with Markle's healthy eating habits. By moving into Nottingham Cottage because of the Kensington Palace with Prince Harry, Markle reportedly threw every and all processed food.
Neither did her fitness routine get a hit. Driving around Kensington Palace used to be one of Markle's favorite ways of exercising when she and Prince Harry lived in Nottingham Cottage.
Her phone number is still the same
That's right, Markle's phone number remains the same as it did before she became the Duchess.
A close friend of Markles spoke to Folk about the drama about his father, Thomas Markle, and did not attend the wedding last May. It is in the comments we learned that Markles had the same phone number for years.
"He knows how to get in touch with her. Her phone number has not changed," Markles told the close friend publication.
Markles continued his philanthropic action
Philantropi is something very close to Markle's heart. In fact, she and Prince Harry first bind their passion to give back on their first date.
"[…] It really was one of the first things we were connected to, it was one of the first things we started talking about when we met was just the various things we wanted to do in the world and how passionate we were to see change, "Markle told the BBC during her and Princess's first sit-down interview after their engagement announcement.
During her time playing Rachel Zane on the US television series she ensured that craft service food was donated to a local soup kitchen she volunteered in Toronto.
Markle became an advocate of UN Women who traveled to Rwanda for the organization. She has also talked about the international women's day.
She has been true to her personal style
Although she has a larger budget for her wardrobe now that she is the Duchess of Sussex, Markle's personal style has remained the same. She makes herself style for events she participates as a functioning royal.
In 2014, she told the clothing retailer, The Outnet, that her style had "become more polished" since being on Suits where she was to wear clothes by designers such as Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Prabal Gurung.
But her general aesthetics have remained the same. She still wants a striped shirt, aviator sunglasses or jeans just with more of a raised edge to fit a duchess.
