It's expected that there will be some adjustments to be made for Meghan Markle as she settles into the royal life. But does being a Duchess pose a danger to her?
Speaking to Fox News, British journalist Angelina Levin said that while Meghan has done well at some aspects of being a royal, there are other things she needs to learn.
Levin said that Meghan was used to making her own decisions and doing her own thing. But now, she has to consider the opinions and reputation of the royal family as a whole.
I do think it’s very difficult for her. This is a very strict, traditional path. It takes a while to get used to it.
Another journalist Richard Madeley agrees that Meghan may have bitten off more than she can chew by joining the royal clan. Madeley, who was a stand-in host on Good Morning Britain, said that the former Suits actress will need to learn quickly if she wants to thrive as part of one of the most famous monarchies.
Personally, I feel a bit sorry for Meghan I think she’s stepped into a snake pit. Diana stepped into a snake pit.
Madeley said that being a part of such a high-profile family can be very tough but he credited Meghan for how far she has come and how she's been getting used to her role.
The TV personality was also worried about Harry and Meghan's marriage. He stated that the honeymoon period "faded so quickly" and Prince Harry had "fallen off a cliff" since his marriage to Meghan.
There have been reports that Meghan doesn't mind so much about being compared to Diana.
In his book, 'Meghan: A Hollywood Princess', author Andrew Morton wrote that a childhood friend of Meghan's said the former actress has always been fascinated by the royal family.

This friend was also quoted as saying that Meghan "wants to be Princess Diana 2.0" in reference to Harry's late mother who, like the Duchess, was also a humanitarian.
Despite these words of concerns by those who claim to support the Duchess, she has given no inkling that her royal life is a struggle. Quite the opposite, actually. She seems to be thriving and embracing her role.
