24 Wifey Rules Meghan Markle Has To Follow Now That She's Married To A Prince

"Well, it may not be considered 'ladylike,' but Markle doesn't shy away from expressing herself,

Meghan Markle's life has changed drastically since she met Prince Harry on a blind date in 2016. (Really, how cool is her friend for setting her up on a date with a Prince!) She's been preparing for her new life as a royal for quite some time, as both of them claim it was love at first sight. There are plenty of things that Markle has to give up in order to be accepted into the Royal Family, and she has followed all of them so far. Honestly, who wouldn't, when Prince Harry is the prize?

Meghan used to run a blog called The Tig, which she shut down in the Spring of 2017, shortly after she and Prince Harry confirmed their relationship publicly. Members of the Royal Family aren't allowed to have their own social media accounts, much less an entire website, and though her blog was quite successful, she obviously made the right decision.

During a BBC interview, Markle claims she didn't know much about the Prince before their first blind date. "Because I’m from the States, you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the Royal Family. I didn’t know much about him, so the only thing that I had asked [our mutual friend] when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, 'Well is he nice?' Because if he wasn't kind, it just didn’t seem like it would make sense."

Little did she know he's one of the sweetest guys around. Markle really scored big time, and the things she'll have to change and give up are small by comparison. Let's take a look at 24 rules Meghan Markle will have to follow now that she's married to Prince Harry.

24 Curtsying

All women are expected to curtsy, and all the men must bow their heads when the Queen walks by. They must even do this for those that outrank them. Recently, Meghan was under fire for not curtsying as the Queen walked by at the royal wedding ceremony, but here's the thing - she did! According to TIME,

"Blame the reactions on the camerawork. At the exact moment when she performed the gesture, cameras panned to a wide shot. So plenty of viewers missed the dutiful move. Meghan had certainly nailed the curtsy before, making headlines with her curtsy at the Christmas Day church service in 2017."

Interestingly enough, Dickie Arbiter, the Queen's former press secretary claims that it's not as strict of a rule as everyone seems to think. "There is this sort of myth that comes from the annals of time that says whenever a member of the Royal Family went past, you did a curtsy or bow,” he said. “But there is no hard and fast rule, and if you can’t do it or don’t feel comfortable doing it or don’t want to do it that’s fine; it doesn’t mean you hold the Queen in any less respect and you won’t be sent to the Tower.”

Either way, people seem to air on the side of caution and almost always perform the move when the Queen is around, which is actually much nicer than if it were a super enforced rule. People do it because they genuinely want to show respect for the Queen, and Meghan is no exception.

23 She Can Only Wear Light Nail Polish

You'll never catch any member of the royal family wearing bright nail polish. Kate Middleton pretty much doesn't wear any at all, but when she does, it's a very light nude pink. According to The Sun and OK! Magazine, "coloured nail varnish and fake nails are not part of the royal etiquette, and are typically considered to be 'vulgar.'"

The Queen in particular isn't a fan of colored nails at all, which may be why everyone sticks to it. There is only one color she likes, which Meghan wore on her big wedding day: Essie's Ballet Slippers.

It was a minor detail that most people missed, but we're sure the Queen appreciated the kind gesture. That particular nail polish is available at drugstores everywhere, so it's one of the few things we can all match the royal family on without totally breaking the bank.

Racked interviewed Essie manicurist, Carla Kay in 2012, who said, "Ballet Slippers stands out from the rest because it's such a classic sheer-pink shade that goes well with every skin-tone. The color application is also incredibly smooth and flawless and always results in a sophisticated and clean nail look," Kay explained, adding, "It's a favorite among brides everywhere for these reasons."

22 No Social Media

Now that Meghan is a Duchess, she's no longer allowed to have her own social media accounts. She even had a lifestyle blog, The Tig, along with a popular Instagram page, both of which she shut down last year in preparation for her upcoming nuptials. Markle first launched The Tig in May 2014, and in just a few short years she built up quite a following. Cosmopolitan looked through the blog's archives, even though it was shut down shortly after she confirmed her relationship with Prince Harry in April 2017. They claimed the blog showed them that "she's charitable, a foodie, and loves the F-word!"

"Well, it may not be considered 'ladylike,' but Markle doesn't shy away from expressing herself,

which includes the occasional F-bomb. When writing about her favorite thing about New York City, she exclaimed it's the city's 'mother f-ing fantastic, crave-worthy food.'" She went on to say, "You can be a lady and say whatever you want." It really is interesting, isn't it? A regular American woman with a blog and the mouth of a sailor is now married to a Prince. She's taken foxy photoshoots, wears heavy makeup on occasion, and she still bagged a royal! And she's following her new rules. Good for her! It must be true love.

21 No PDA

It's frowned down upon to be spotted getting too lovey-dovey in public as a royal. Kate Middleton and Prince William stick to this rule for the most part, but it seems Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren't too keen on keeping their love under wraps. To be fair, they just got married, and on top of that, they've dealt with long-distance communication for quite some time. They've been in pre-marital bliss, and now marks the start of the honeymoon phase. Though we're sure their love won't diminish over time, they may start to keep the hugging, kissing, and hand-holding for the bedroom before long.

So far, they've been photographed holding hands, hugging, whispering, giggling, and kissing all over the place! Don't worry though, it's nothing you can't handle. It's all just sweet gestures of love, no making out or anything. We're not sure how the Queen feels about it, but she might be turning a blind eye until the passion wears down a bit.

It's not a royal decree or anything, so it shouldn't be a big deal. Of course everyone likes to keep the Queen happy, avoid confrontation, and give off a professional vibe while out in public. Only time will tell if Meghan and Prince Harry will start to tone it down a little.

20 She Must Pack Funeral Clothes When She Travels

All royals must travel with a set of mourning clothes ever since King George passed while Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip were in Africa. They had to travel back in regular clothes. Now everyone must take a funeral appropriate outfit with them when traveling as a sign of respect. It's kind of dark, isn't it? But it's important to them, and we can definitely understand why. I'm sure they don't talk about death all the time, but it's something they're obligated to be prepared for. According to The Independent,

"This ensures that when they return to the U.K. they are seen to be in a respectful mood that correlates with the presumable sombre mindset of the nation during that period."

It's extremely sad that the Queen's father passed while she was in Africa, and we're sure the thought haunts her all the time, which is why this rule is in place. If there's one thing Meghan is sure to follow, we bet it's this one, as she's shown time and time again that the Queen's wishes are of the upmost importance to her.

19 No Speaking Publicly About Politics

No one in the Royal Family is allowed to vote or speak openly and publicly about their political views. The U.K. Parliament website reads, "Although not prohibited by law, it is considered unconstitutional for the Monarch to vote in an election." And according to Refinery29, "Additionally, they are strongly discouraged from voicing their political opinions." Before marrying Prince Harry, Markle was very outspoken about her beliefs, especially when it came to the 2016 election. She posted on Instagram about her support for Hillary Clinton. Anne Chertoff, a royal expert and WeddingWire trend analyst told Refinery29,

"Members of the Royal Family try to stay neutral about controversial and political topics, but Meghan has already brought up the Me Too movement during a talk since becoming engaged to Prince Harry."

During a panel in February, Markle reportedly said, "Right now, with so many campaigns like Me Too and Time’s Up, there’s no better time to continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people supporting them." While most people agree that women should feel empowered and strong, and we're sure Meghan will continue to advocate for women everywhere, she most likely will tone down talk of who should be president.

18 No Removing Her Coat In Public

Women of the Royal Family are expected to follow very specific guidelines regarding the way they carry themselves and present themselves to the world. According to Glamour, "As it turns out, royal etiquette outlines that the duchess must not remove her jacket in public, because it's regarded as 'unladylike.' Yes, you read that correctly: the act of removing her outermost layer of clothing in public, no matter the circumstance, is actually frowned upon by the crown (If she must, she has to step away from wherever cameras might be.)." It's a way for the royal women to keep things classy.

Leaving their jacket on shows modesty, and honestly, it kind of gives off the appearance that they're in a hurry, or they're ready to go at a moment's notice. Kate Middleton is great about following this rule, and we're sure Meghan will follow suit.

She'll also be expected to carry a small handbag or clutch while greeting people. On the plus side, since she's married (of course, that's what makes her a royal), she can now wear tiaras after 6 p.m. at events. It doesn't get much classier than that!

17 No Family Trips

Okay, she can take trips with her new hubby, but once they have kids, they'll have to travel separately, as two heirs to the throne may not travel together. It's as grim as having to pack funeral clothes everywhere you go. The only time an exception has been made was when Princess Diana passed, and the Princes traveled together to come back home as quickly as possible.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have broken this rule, however. They have travelled together with their son when he was nine months old. It's reported that they're making an exception, and once their son is twelve years old, his father and he must ride on different planes when traveling together. As a general rule of thumb, the parents typically leave their children at home while traveling for royal duties. Of course, if they're going on a family trip, they have to bring their family. We're not sure if the new duchess and her Prince will follow in Middleton's footsteps, or adhere to this rule, but hopefully we'll find out soon. (Hint, hint! We want to see another cute baby!)

16 She Must Accept All Gifts

The members of the Royal Family are required to accept any and all gifts graciously, no matter how weird or off-putting the gift is. Once accepted, it's technically the property of the crown, and the Queen will then decide what to do with it. When they're given a gift that's out of line, the Queen then has the right to reject the offer, or do with it as she pleases.

The Queen herself has been given many animals as gifts over the years. Ranging from ponies, horses, swans, cows, and even some pygmy hippos!

In the extreme cases, such as jaguars and sloths, the Queen gives the animals to local zoos to care for. What we want to know is, are people really giving these animals in the hopes of making the Queen smile, or are they simply pulling a big goof? What woman wants a pet jaguar? And the Queen, nonetheless! As a wedding gift, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were given free pizza for life from Pizza Hut, but unfortunately were required to turn it down. Apparently the Royal Family cannot accept gifts of a commercial nature. What a bummer!

15 No Eating After The Queen Is Done

This isn't just a rule that applies to newlywed Markle. Everyone that's eating in the Queen's presence is required to put their forks down once the Queen has finished eating.

For large events, once her purse is placed on the table, the entire room must finish their meals and move on with the evening within five short minutes. It's a sign of respect for the Queen, as well as a way for those around her to adhere to her schedule and wishes.

The Queen is reportedly a stickler about her schedule, which I can totally get down with. I'm the exact same way, except no one around me takes it into consideration. All jokes aside, all members of the Royal Family must stick to the Queen's schedule. If she so pleases to continue eating past her usual time, everyone may proceed. But more often than not, once her utensils are placed on the table, everyone else must quit eating as well. A dinner with the Queen is usually from 8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. That's a pretty late dinner, and a long one at that! Meghan should have more than enough time to get used to her new dinner plans. Besides, it's not as if they have to eat with her every single night.

14 No Autographs Or Selfies

No members of the Royal Family are allowed to take selfies with anyone, or sign autographs. Meghan actually has been caught breaking this rule already! There are two main reasons for this. For autographs, it's not allowed simply to deter people from forging a royal family member's names on important documents (or period). Meghan got around this rule by writing "Hi Kaitlin," with a "K" instead of just signing her real name. It was a clever loophole, that's for sure. And besides, she technically wasn't a royal yet, as she and Prince Harry were still engaged at this time.

Royals aren't allowed to take selfies with people because it's meant to deter people from turning their backs on them. Supposedly they much rather prefer people to speak to them, face to face and enjoy the moment instead of turning around to capture a quick picture with them.

This one might prove to be a little harder for Markle, because she's somewhat known as a selfie enthusiast. We're sure she's willing to make the sacrifice though, as it's a small price to pay to be with the man of your dreams (who also happens to be a Prince)! Goodbye selfies!

13 Bye Bye Shrimp!

Again, this rule doesn't apply to only the wives of the Royal Family. It applies to everyone. In fact, it's probably more important that the heirs don't break the rule. Absolutely no shellfish for Markle from now on! This is required of everyone in the family to minimize the threat of allergies and other sicknesses. Shellfish poses a higher risk of food poisoning than most other foods.

They aren't willing to lose a family member over some scrumptious shrimp. It makes sense, though it is kind of a bummer. At least we're sure Meghan has eaten her fair share of shellfish in the past, so she's not really missing out the way her husband and in-laws are. Most of them have never tasted shellfish at any point in their lives. Prince Charles, however, has eaten shellfish on several occasions, probably much to the Queen's dismay.

While death from eating shellfish tends to be low, it's still a major inconvenience for the entire family if one of them gets sick. That's why they take so many preventative measures to stay healthy, and keep everything running smoothly. The Royals are also advised to avoid rare meats and tap water, especially while traveling abroad. This too minimizes the chances of a member of the family falling ill over a bad meal. Anything too exotic, spicy, or rare is now a no-go for Meghan.

12 No Wearing Fur

This rule is one of the most frequently broken rules the royal family has. According to OK! Magazine, "In 1137, King Edward III declared no one, including members of the royal family, could wear fur. However, taking a look back at some of the Queen and Kate Middleton’s outfits over the years, it looks like this isn’t a commandment they’re taking too seriously."

Kate Middleton in particular, loves wearing expensive fur hats, and the Queen has been spotted wearing them as well. For the most part, it's hard to tell whether or not they're made out of real fur, but it's fashion experts have identified one of Middleton's hats as being real, so we know for sure she's broken the rule. And if you ask me, the Queen's hat pictured above looks pretty real. If it's faux fur and whoever made it did a great job at making it look authentic! Like most loose rules, only time will tell if Meghan will actually adhere to this one. Perhaps she'll break it a few times, but she doesn't seem to be one to wear fur very much anyway.

There is one thing she'll have to give up, at least in the presence of the Queen — wedges! Yes, no wedges for the ladies of the Royal Family, simply because Queen Elizabeth isn't a fan.

Kate Middleton follows this rule for the most part, and only breaks out the wedges when she's a few thousand miles away from the Queen. Queen Elizabeth is held in high regard, and her wishes are respected. But Kate is a modern woman after all, and they're family. We're sure she doesn't get much guff from the Queen for her fashion choices, as long as she doesn't have to witness the fashion abomination in person.

11 She Must Spend Christmas With The Queen

Everyone in the Royal Family is required to spend Christmas at the Sandringham House, the Queen's estate in Norfolk. It means a lot to her, and she'll often arrive a week before Christmas day to set everything up and get the ball rolling. This may or may not sound like a wonderful time to some, but it's not without its limitations.

No one is technically allowed to travel elsewhere or spend Christmas with other family members. Kate Middleton wasn't too happy about this rule, and had plans to break it from the beginning. She waited a few years until doing so, but ultimately she's decided to travel to see her own family as well now that she has kids.

Middleton is pretty big on giving her kids as much of a normal life as she possibly can, so it meant a great deal to her. Apparently, this upset the Queen greatly, but I guess ultimately it was allowed.Who knows if Markle will follow this rule or not, but we would assume she'd like to visit her mother on occasion. Christmas is a special time, and it would be sad if her mom had to spend it alone every year because her daughter married into royalty.

10 No Presents On Christmas Day

Don't worry, the Royal Family still opens gifts, they just don't do it on Christmas day. It's reported that they all sit down for teatime (or Supper, as they call it) on Christmas Eve evening, and that's when the gifts are exchanged at Sandringham House.

According to Good Housekeeping, they even exchange hilarious gag gifts! "After tea, the mood turns into a 'total uproar' as they exchange jokey gifts, according to the Queen's nephew Viscount Linley.

Prince Harry once reportedly gave his grandmother a shower cap with the phrase 'Ain't life a b*tch" on it!' It's hard to imagine the Queen appreciating that sort of gift, but I suppose when you have as much money as the royal family does, it probably gets boring exchanging regular gifts after a while. I mean, surely they already have everything they could possibly want.

Good Housekeeping also reported that the Queen will knock back a few drinks on Christmas Eve. It seems like the royals have a knockout Christmas Eve, and spend Christmas Day doing the more mundane Christmas traditions, like attending church, eating a big Christmas lunch, and giving a big speech that broadcasts on television.

9 She Must Learn Proper Etiquette

There's a lot Meghan will have to learn now, and it's possible that she's already been taking etiquette classes for quite some time. The Royals take appearances very seriously, and there are a ton of minor details that go into presenting yourself as royalty. Everything from how to properly hold a tea cup, to understanding utensil placement. According to Business Insider,

"They use their thumb and index finger to hold the top of the handle, while the middle finger supports the bottom. They also sip from the same spot so the entire rim doesn't have lipstick stains. If you're more of a coffee drinker, protocol is to loop your index finger through the handle. And when in doubt, no pinkies out."

As far as utensil placement goes, the Royals have a system to let the wait staff know if they're done eating or not. If they cross their utensils, it signifies that they're not done eating. If they place their utensils at an angle, with the handles at the bottom right of the plate, it lets the wait staff know that their plates are ready to be taken away. They even have a specific way of eating! They use the fork in a way that many would consider to be "upside down," carefully balancing food on the backside of the fork.  These are all things that Meghan will have to get used to if she wants to blend in with the Royal Family.

8 No Casual Wear

The Royal Family members are expected to present themselves in a professional, proper manner at all times. That means absolutely no casual wear, or anything too provocative. Markle has done several photoshoots like the one above, and from now on, this is a big no-go. We're not sure if the Queen has seen these pictures, but if she has, she probably wasn't too happy about it. As long as she carries herself with class from now on, things should be fine.

The Royals want everyone to see them in the best light possible. Their hair is always on point (in fact, Kate Middleton reportedly gets her hair blown out three times a week). Spaghetti straps are certainly not allowed unless they're attached to a nice gown, and showing cleavage is strongly looked down upon. Princess Diana used to cover herself with her clutch whiles stepping out of cars, even when her dress wasn't showing too much.

If members of the Royal Family are simply going out to walk their dog or something, jeans are fine. But for the most part, no royals will be caught wearing casual wear in public. The women can wear modest day dresses or trousers with a cardigan and nice blouse. No T-shirts and messy buns for Meghan from here on out!

7 She Must Wear Hats To Formal Events

When attending formal events, Meghan will be wearing a hat, just like every other lady in the Royal Family. Diana Mather, a senior tutor for The English Manner etiquette consultancy says, "Up until the 1950s, ladies were very seldom seen without a hat as it was not considered 'the thing' for ladies to show their hair in public. But all that has changed and hats are now reserved for more formal occasions."At said events, after 6 p.m., it's off with the hats and on with the tiaras. Well, for married ladies, anyway. Mather went on to say,

"The old rule is that hats are never worn indoors after 6 p.m., because that is when the ladies changed into evening dress, and tiaras and the family jewels would come out. Flashy diamonds and tiaras are not worn during the day, and only married ladies wear tiaras."

Tiaras are a sign of status and they also convey to everyone around you that you're married and that men shouldn't approach you with romantic intentions, because you're accounted for. When Meghan wears a tiara, it must also be aligned properly. The style has changed over the years, but we think she'll get the hang of it quickly!

6 No Crossing Her Legs

Royal women have a very specific way of sitting that they deem proper. The knees must always be together, and you can either cross your ankles (which is the norm), or you can pick up Princess Diana's way of sitting as Kate Middleton has. Princess Diana was known for sitting with her knees together, feet and ankles together at an angle away from her body. This gives the appearance of longer legs, and it looks very classy and ladylike, doesn't it? It's been coined "the duchess slant." Fashion Style Magazine says,

"Duchess Kate has fully crossed her legs when sitting a few times — but these have all been at more casual, outdoorsy engagements. You may notice that Kate hardly ever leans against the back of the chair, nor does she use the armrests."

Surely Meghan will follow suite. The men have to sit a certain way too (feet flat on the floor, shoulder width apart) but that doesn't affect Meghan. She'll be expected to sit like the other ladies of the family. Not only will she have to watch the way she sits, she has to keep proper posture all the time. Her back must always be straight, without looking unnatural, and her chin should be parallel to the floor. It sounds like a lot to remember, but we're sure she's taking etiquette classes to get up to speed on it all. The longer she practices good posture, the easier it will come to her.

5 Master The Windsor Wave

Everyone knows the famous Windsor Wave, and it seems Meghan already has it down pretty well. According to Express, "Meghan’s modest and understated wave [on her wedding day] was a huge U-turn from her overly-excitable hand waving following the official announcement of her engagement to Prince Harry." Apparently, her wave was less than graceful up until the wedding, but who can blame her. It's not really something most Americans concern themselves with.

Insider said, "And, as if anyone ever doubted it, Markle is already nailing her royal duties. During the royal wedding procession from St George's Chapel in Windsor, UK, the newly-minted Duchess of Sussex showed off her perfect royal wave." Grant Harold, the royal butler claims that her form is not perfect yet, though.

"She will need to learn the more restrained (and easier on the hand) ‘Windsor wave,’ which is much more subtle and less tiring. Her arm should extend upward at a right angle and the hand then moves from side to side in gentle right-left motions.”

It seems she still has a few changes to make her Windsor wave perfect, but it's interesting to see how far she's come already. We're not sure how often she has to attend etiquette classes, but the difference is like night and day!

4 Must Go By Her Full Name

Markle's first name isn't actually Meghan at all! It's Rachel. She goes by her middle name, Meghan, probably because it rolls off the tongue easier, and she was pursuing a career in acting. It's not uncommon for celebrities to go by a different name, after all. We do know that Prince Harry refers to her as Meghan, though we're not sure if he'll continue to do this. Maybe in formal situations he'll refer to her as Rachel, but during their engagement, he always just called her Meghan. In an interview with BBC, he said just about the sweetest thing you can think of, making women all over the world swoon.

"The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that everything, all the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect."

According to The Sun, Markle has gone by Meghan her whole life, so they don't predict that Prince Harry will change it, at least when the doors are closed. However, it is a rule that on formal documents and formal occasions, she be referred to by her birth name. Both are equally beautiful, so at least she has that going for her. Well, that and being married to a Prince and all.

3 No More Flashy Makeup

Yup, Markle's days of wearing dark or flashy makeup are over. Thankfully she's stunning even while makeup free, so she shouldn't feel too self-conscious about this change. They're not allowed to wear dark lipstick. Pretty much anything above a nude or light pink is off limits. The Queen has been known to wear a bright pink lipstick, but that's part of her signature, colorful look. and Meghan surely won't want to step on the Queen's toes.

Bold blush and heavy eye makeup is out, too. The Royals don't like looking "overdone." As usual, Meghan always has her sister-in-law to look up to. The Duchess of Cambridge follows the fashion and etiquette rules pretty strictly for the most part. According to Harpers Bazaar,

"Even though you might see her add a smoky eye or an extra lick of mascara for a night-time event, Catherine rarely does 'heavy' makeup. Between her medium-coverage foundation and light eye makeup, the Duchess usually keeps things simple, and never goes overboard with blush, eye shadow, or lipstick."

I much prefer Meghan in natural makeup, honestly. She looks beautiful no matter what, but her features shine through when she has minimal makeup on. If there's one person that can really pull off the royal look, it's Meghan!

2 No Sleeping Until The Queen Sleeps

That's right, Meghan doesn't even have full control over her sleeping habits anymore — at least not whenever she stays with the Queen! It doesn't just apply to Meghan, or the ladies of the house. It applies to everyone, even her husband. If the Queen feels like staying up late to enjoy the company, no one is allowed to turn in until the Queen decides she's ready.

We assume the Queen doesn't push it too much or keep everyone up way too late, considering everyone's health is so important to her, as is her schedule. She must be a Type A person, for sure. She's reportedly even strict about what she eats every morning. It must be Special K cereal, or corn flakes, with a little fresh or dried fruit. According to BT, around 8 p.m.,

"The Queen is said to be a fan of Coronation Street and also does jigsaw puzzles and crosswords or plays Scrabble to relax. But ever conscientious, she does not switch off from work completely, and spends some of the evening with her official despatch boxes again."

By 11 p.m., "It’s time for the Queen to rest her royal head, but not before writing a page of her diary, which she has kept since the beginning of her reign." Eleven is actually pretty late for some people, but she has to squeeze in some time for herself and family somewhere.

1 Say Goodbye To Monopoly

Possibly one of the most relatable things about the Royal Family is their stance on Monopoly. It's not that they hate it, or they think there's anything wrong with playing. But they reportedly get too heated to carry out the game, and so it's been banned. It's not technically written in the books or anything, but they still abide by the rule. During a public event, Prince Andrew was given a personalized box of Monopoly that even contained their property features. Because he's a royal, he accepted the gift, but not without saying telling the gifter that they're not allowed to play the fun board game.

"It gets too vicious," he said.

Hopefully Meghan didn't like the game too much, because she's never allowed to play it again from here on out. We're not entirely sure what happened that made the family add Monopoly to their list of banned activities, but if it's anything like my family game night — I completely understand. Monopoly can bring the worst out in people, ending with an upturned board. The Royals go out of their way to give off a certain air about them, and getting angry about board games just isn't conducive to the way they want to be viewed.
