When Meghan Markle married into the British royal family, she adopted a bucket load of royal rules and regulations.
From social media restrictions to learning how and when to curtsy and even how to sit correctly, the newly appointed Duchess of Sussex has a lot to learn in her new role.
But it turns out not every member of the royal family has to follow the royal rules as closely as Meghan has to.
When looking at Meghan alongside Prince Harry’s cousins, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, it’s clear that the famous sisters have a lot more flexibility when it comes to following the rules.
Here’s the six royal rules that Meghan must follow that Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice can ignore.
1. Social media restrictions
When Meghan Markle first starting dating Prince Harry in 2016, she started to say goodbye to her online presence when she shut down her lifestyle blog, The Tig.
Now, as a fully fledged member of the royal family, you’ll no longer find Meghan on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
Princess Eugenie, on the other hand, recently launched her verified Instagram account where she posts everything from throwback pics to personal and professional updates and even the occasional meme.
2. Asking permission to marry
Although Harry had to ask the Queen’s permission to marry Meghan, the rule doesn’t apply to Princess Eugenie and Beatrice.
