Megan Markle Refuses To Attend This Year's Emmy Awards! But Why?

Megan Markle was a rather unpopular actress at the beginning of her career, yet she still managed to pull out her lucky ticket, having received one of the major roles in the highly successful American TV-show "Suits". Few people recognized the starlet, but everybody fell in love with Rachel Zane, a part-time summer associate at Pearson Specter Litt, who was portrayed by now Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
After making a decision to marry Prince Harry, Megan left the project and announced her intention to retire from the movies. However, recently the duchess was submitted for Emmy consideration, where the fans vote determine the nominees in each category.
On the one hand, there is nothing strange about this. The nominees are chosen way before the actual ceremony. And considering that Meghan hasn't won any prestigious award yet, the victory could've been a lifetime achievement for her. A little later it became known that Markle was also included in the list of the nominees for the Teen Choice Awards. This ceremony celebrates all achievements in music, cinema, sports, television, and fashion.
Although the retirement was a deliberate decision of the prince's wife, her fans were worried about one thing: if she decided to go to the ceremony, would it be considered a violation of the royal protocol? In fact, such rule simply cannot exist, since Markle is the first member of the British royal family to be submitted for Emmys consideration. Perhaps, Elizabeth II would not support her desire to dive again into the world of cinema, but maybe things would turn the opposite, as Her Majesty has repeatedly broken her own rules for the sake of the new daughter-in-law.
Nevertheless, the Duchess made her choice - she politely but firmly declined the invitation, leaving her past life behind the imaginary boundary and focusing on her new responsibilities. As reported by different sources, Meghan embraced the radical changes in her life with joy and appreciation.
Perhaps, Meghan misses her colleagues and friends in the U.S., everyday acting, and Rachel Zane in particular. However, now Megan has much more opportunities to fulfill her biggest dream - to become involved in changing the world for the better.
