The Duchess of Sussex is yet to announce any patronages of hers, but despite that, she has clearly shown that she wants to make a difference in her new role as a royal.
Even before she became a royal, Meghan was involved in humanitarian work and was a passionate advocate for women’s rights and equality, so we can’t wait and see which charities she will choose to support now as a royal.
But it seems that there is another unexpected obstacle, according to sources Meghan had some ideas for change, however, they have all been rejected by the palace. And Meghan has become frustrated by the constant rejections. A source told People: “A palace is a magical place, and it is also a place where all you hear is ‘no, no, no’.
“The most difficult job in the royal family is to work with Meghan’s ambitions and make them realisable. She will get frustrated if she is told, ‘You can’t do this or can’t do that.'”
A palace insider said royal aides “might not be used to the ‘say-it-as-you-see-it’ American mentality.”
Ever since her royal wedding to Prince Harry in May, Meghan has had to adapt to all kinds of traditions and limitations that come with her newly acquired royal status.
Indeed, according to a Us Weekly source, another palace protocol Meghan finds “frustrating” is “not being able to comment” on the situation with Thomas Markle.
This must be hard for Meghan, who was quite vocal on social media and spoke her mind freely quite often before becoming a royal.
Meghan has written about her humanitarian work in the past, as in 2016 she wrote on The Tig, her now inactive blog, that “feeds [her] soul and fuels her purpose” and that she “never wanted to be a lady that lunches”.
Despite all that, the Duchess has managed to cause some ruckus, with her impressive work ethic, reports claim, as her 5 am starts and requests are allegedly rocking the boat among royal staff.
Even with all the obstacles and problems, Meghan has done a considerable amount in her role. She has been conducting a number of “undercover” meetings with British citizens associated with good causes, the Mail on Sunday reported.
Earlier this year, the Duchess of Sussex launched a charity cookbook to help those affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy and also finished an exhausting 16-day royal tour in Oceania – making a poignant speech at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji.
