There’s been a lot of talk lately about what’s next for the Royal Family. Most of it has been positive, with the whole country celebrating the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William last year.

But there have also been rumors that the newlyweds aren’t exactly treating the monarchy with the respect it deserves. And now that Meghan Markle is about to become a Duchess, even more attention is being paid to the future of the Royal Family.

So is Meghan Markle really going to be the death of the monarchy? Let’s take a look at the facts and some pretty interesting theories about what’s going to happen next.

The Facts

There are still a lot of unanswered questions about Meghan Markle and her upcoming marriage to Prince Harry. The media has been relentless in trying to find out every last detail about the bride-to-be. And it seems like the more they learn, the more they don’t know, leaving fans guessing about what’s going on behind the scenes.

Here’s a rundown of the information that has been made public so far.


It’s been reported that Meghan has spent a fortune on designer clothes, especially since becoming a member of the Royal Family. According to The Telegraph, she’s spent thousands on designer accessories like this Christian Louboutin clutch, which retails for $868 on his website.

Harry has also reportedly bought his wife tons of expensive gifts, including this $20,000 polka dot-print silk scarf, which was a present from Queen Victoria on the couple’s anniversary. The list of expensive gifts goes on and on—including another $20,000 gift from the Queen for their 10th wedding anniversary. You can see all of Prince Harry’s wedding gifts here.

Money And Finances

It’s been said that Meghan has inherited a lot of money from her father, who was a successful television producer. She reportedly paid $500,000 for a diamond necklace as a present for her upcoming wedding. The designer was reportedly over the moon about the sale.

The money won’t just come in handy for the wedding—it will also help the couple start their family. According to reports, Harry and Meghan are already having children. The first baby is expected to arrive in April 2022.

But the question is: Will Meghan Markle be good for the Royal Family’s finances? Kate Middleton certainly struggled with her finances while her husband was King George. She had to sell Biddesden Place, the royal family’s country home, to pay off her debts. And it was only after she became Queen that she was finally able to restore the family’s finances. This is probably going to be one of Harry and Meghan’s biggest challenges.

Will they be able to pull off what Princes Charles and Albert did—keep the family’s finances in the black, even during times of recession? Time will tell, but for now, let’s enjoy the ride.

Royal Weddings

One of the most exciting things for Harry and Meghan will be the opportunity to host a royal wedding. After Prince George and Princess Charlotte, their children, hosted the wedding of Prince Louis and Lady Alix Windsor in 2004, it’s time for the Royal Family to host another big event. And this time, it will be a double celebration, with Harry and Meghan’s engagement and wedding.

There have already been a lot of rumors about which country the wedding might take place in. The Telegraph reports that the couple will wed at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The venue will be a fitting symbol of the “New Windsors” and their commitment to modernizing the monarchy. It was last used for the wedding of Queen Victoria in 1874.

The rumors continue to swirl about the guest list. According to one report, over 300 people have been invited, including close family members, and around 70 ambassadors, dignitaries and prominent figures. But the guest list has not yet been made public. We’ll just have to wait and see.


It’s been said that after their wedding, Harry and Meghan will begin a new chapter in their lives as a “power couple.” Not only will they have each other by their side, but they’ll also have access to the kind of support and resources that only the monarchy could provide.

There will no doubt be plenty more stories about this unconventional couple. But for now, let’s enjoy the ride and keep our fingers crossed that all will go well.
