    We have a feeling Prince Harry is going to have his hands full teaching Meghan Markle the ways of royalty.

    Not only has Meghan been caught sneaking out of Kensington Palace, but she’s been breaking royal protocols left, right and centre.

    Meghan previously broke royal tradition when she stepped out with this hairstyle at a royal engagement, and the 36-year-old is also set to break the rules with her wedding day speech if the rumours are anything to go by.

    Meghan and Harry have spent the last few days in Scotland, and whilst there Meghan broke yet another royal protocol.

    As tradition goes, the royal family aren’t allowed to be touched by members of the public – which is one of the reasons Kate Middleton always carries a clutch bag with her.

    However, whilst in Edinburgh, Prince Harry’s fiance left protocol aside as she gave a huge hug to Alice Thompson, who co-found the homeless charity Social Bite.


    According to journalist Omid Scobie, Alice had just told Meghan that her 2015 speech on empowerment had been a huge inspiration to her when the former Suits star pulled her in for the embrace.

    Personally, we think circumstances such as these call for rules to be broken.
