Navigating Royal Protocol at Prince Charles’s Crowning

As Meghan Markle has become a household name, it’s no surprise that the public is fascinated by her role in the royal family. However, since she is not an official member of the royal family, many are wondering what rules she must follow when attending royal events. A question that comes up frequently is whether she could wear a tiara to Prince Charles’ coronation.

For starters, it’s important to understand that there are strict rules regarding who can wear a tiara in the royal family. Traditionally, only married women of royal blood are allowed to wear tiaras. This means that Meghan, who is not of royal blood, could not wear a tiara on her own.

However, there are a few exceptions to this rule. For example, Queen Elizabeth II allowed Princess Diana to wear a tiara before she married Prince Charles, despite not being a member of the royal family at the time. This was seen as a gesture of goodwill towards the future princess.

Given this precedent, it’s possible that Meghan will also be allowed to wear a tiara at Prince Charles’ coronation. However, it should be noted that this would be a very unusual move. The royal family is steeped in tradition and protocol, and they are unlikely to break with tradition unless there is a compelling reason to do so.

Another factor to consider is Meghan’s status as a non-working royal. Since stepping back as a senior member of the Royal Family, Meghan has not been involved in any official royal events. This means she cannot be invited to Prince Charles’ coronation at all, let alone be allowed to wear a tiara. However, if she is invited, it is likely that the Royal Family will do everything to make her feel comfortable and included in the event.

Ultimately, whether or not Meghan can wear a tiara to Prince Charles’ coronation is up to the royal family. They will have to weigh the benefits of making an exception to tradition against the potential backlash from those who believe such exceptions should not be made.

Meghan Markle’s status as a non-working royal and of non-royal blood means she would traditionally not be allowed to wear a tiara at Prince Charles’ coronation. However, there is precedent for exceptions, and the Royal Family may choose to make an exception for Meghan. Only time will tell what the final decision will be.
