The Royal Wedding was held on May 19, 2018.
American actress Meghan Markle’s life undoubtedly changed since she began dating Prince Harry, but with their royal wedding making her an official part of the royal family, her life is already changing in an even bigger way.

We’ve rounded up all of the major ways Markle’s life will be altered now that she and Prince Harry have tied the knot.

  • As a member of the royal family, Meghan Markle won’t vote or continue working as an actress.
  • She’ll become a British citizen and has already been baptized into the Church of England.
  • She’ll live a more lavish lifestyle and go by a royal title like the Duchess of Sussex.

Prince Harry’s communications secretary told BBC that Markle intends to become a citizen of the UK and will be “compliant with immigration requirements at all times.”

She’ll have to go through the same process as anyone else. She’ll apply for a family visa and marry within six months of arriving in the country. After five years, she can be granted permanent residency and apply for citizenship by taking a test.

Though Markle is outspoken about social issues and racial issues, she will not be able to be an active participant in politics when she marries Harry.

Royals are apparently forbidden from discussing specific political views publicly and they don’t vote. Members of the royal family are also prevented from running for office. So, alas, Meghan won’t be making her presidential run anytime soon.

Markle is an accomplished actor, philanthropist, blogger, and fashion designer. And although the Crown loves ambitious partners for royals, wives of royals are often “encouraged” to give that up and focus on royal pursuits once they marry into the family.

Many have noted that Markle shut down her blog “The Tig” and has started using her platform to speak about charities she is passionate about — a career more in line with what she’d be encouraged to do as a royal.

Kensington Palace announced that Markle, an American Protestant, would join the Church of England before the wedding service. She was reportedly baptized into the Church of England by the Archbishop of Canterbury in March in a private ceremony.

Princess Eugenie is the only member of the younger generation of royals who has a personal social media account, so many predicted that Markle would delete her Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages when she got engaged.

Indeed, Kensington Palace released a statement in January saying that the time had come.
