The engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seems to be all the world can talk about right now, and for good reason! It's so exciting that an American woman will be marrying into the royal family, and the fact that she's an actress we have all been watching for years is just the cherry on top!
We've all been keeping up with the engagement, and trying to see how Markle will adapt to the royal rules. So far, she's already come under fire for breaking rules about her hairstyles, but apparently that hasn't deterred her from continuing to be her own person.
The royal-to-be broke protocols that have been in place for decades, but it was all for a 10-year-old girl. Caitlin Clark was lucky enough to meet the engaged couple on January 18th, outside of the Cardiff Castle in Wales. Excited to meet Markle, she quickly asked for an autograph. While it may seem like a simple request, it is a strictly forbidden practice in the royal family.
The reason they don't give autographs isn't because they don't want to appreciate their fans, but because of something a lot more serious.
