    Meghan Markle is one of the most talked about women in the world, becoming Duchess of Sussex just over a year ago, and now having a royal baby of her own.

    The 38-year-old has fitted seamlessly into the royal family from the moment she started dating Prince Harry, from bonding with the Queen’s corgis to getting an early invite to spend Christmas at Sandringham with the Windsors.

    And now that Meghan is officially a royal, she has only blossomed into the role.

    Yes, Meghan may have only been a Duchess for 16 months but you wouldn’t think it by looking at her, with the former Suits actress undergoing Princess lessons to learn the etiquette, changing things about herself from her handwriting to her wardrobe.

    The most recently known rule that Meghan must comply to involves diamonds, with the royal reported to be banned from wearing them before a certain hour in the day.

    Yes, really. According to royal etiquette expert Myka Meier via, the Duchess is not allowed to wear diamonds in the day.

    ‘Other jewels are worn pre-6 pm,’ the royal etiquette expert explained to the news station. ’Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires. At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance.’

    Well, that’s that.
