When Anne Hathaway was crowned as the princess of Genovia in the 2001 blockbuster ‘Princess Diaries’, we thought that such miracles are possible only in the parallel world of Hollywood, and the chances of such a thing happening in real life is like spotting a unicorn waving at cars while crossing a road. Anyway, the point is that something like this was unimaginable until Prince Harry announced his engagement with his long time girlfriend.
Congratulations Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle on their engagement!

Prince Harry’s love story is proof that fairy tales exist…even in the millennial world! And for those who think we are exaggerating, go and search the name of Meghan Markle and you will have your answer.
So just like Anne Hathaway’s on-screen life changed within a day, Meghan Markle too experienced something similar after she got engaged and is now all set to marry into the British royal family by 2018.
From opening briefcases on ‘Deal Or No Deal’ to playing senior paralegal Rachel Zane in American hit series ‘Suits’ and soon to become the ‘royalty’; Markle has sure come a long way.

In fact, recently, her on-screen fiancé Patrick J Adams congratulated Markle in the most hilarious way possible, which took no time to break the internet.

But, like people say “good things come at a price” the price here is to undergo a strict security training to ensure that she is prepared for even the most extreme emergency situations. According to a report published in The Independent, Prince Harry’s future bride will undergo training with the SAS (Special Air Service), which will include learning to deal with terrifying scenarios, something that can be as extreme as being held hostage.
Alex Bomberg, former Royal Aide and CEO of Intelligent Protection International told The Independent, “If you can imagine her being put into a room, being treated as if she was a hostage, the room being stormed by the SAS, she will be put through that training.”
In fact, Bomberg further said, “Diana and Charles went through that training. Pretty much every senior member of the royal family has been through that training. They would also receive training about how to behave without close protection i.e. what they might do if things go wrong.”
In fact, after becoming a part of the royal family after her wedding in May, she won’t be able to roam around freely as she will have to be under round-the-clock protection. In other words, “her life now will be more of a regime.” Her life will now be charted out by the security unit to an extent that from her dentist to her hairdresser, every appointment will be taken care of with much precision.
The couple will tie the knot in May next year at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Well, agreed that her life is going to be a lot more ‘restrictive’ and she may also not have the freedom to choose acting roles to her heart’s desire; she is also going to be constantly under the radar and have every move monitored….but in the end, there is no price too big to pay when it comes to love. Even one’s freedom.
