    Being a royal, like most jobs, has both its advantages and drawbacks.

    While having a royal title gives access, opportunity and of course the luxury of living in a palace, there is also a lot of duty that comes with the role.

    There’s a hefty rulebook for the Windsors to follow, from wearing tights to not wearing black, with Meghan, now Duchess of Sussex, having to comply.

    Now Meghan is taking princess lessons – brushing up on the travel rules she has to comply with when going on official tours and the royal food rules she must follow when dining with the Queen – no garlic, everyone!

    This week a new rule emerged that Meghan would have to follow if she got pregnant, and we’re not sure if we could hack it.

    In accordance with royal protocol, the family adhere to a strict dress code, reportedly having to dress in ‘smart casual’ attire at all times.

    The one key rule? No tracksuits.

    That’s right. So when Meghan becomes pregnant, she will have to bypass the leggings and comfy loungewear for maternity dresses and cardigans.

    While we’re sure Meghan can still kick back in a tracksuit at any of her three houses or in private settings, when she’s out and about – especially around the monarch – tracksuits will be off limits.

    We’re not sure we could manage.
