When it comes to being a part of the royal family, appearances are everything. From clothes and jewelry to waving and speeches, all of the royals have to adhere to very strict guidelines. So, does this mean they can't get tattoos?
While the chances of seeing Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle sporting a tramp stamp is very unlikely, you may be surprised to find out that other royals are indeed tattooed!
Lady Amelia Windsor, Prince Harry and William's cousin, has a series of small tattoos. Bustle reports that "She has a lion on her shoulder blade, three animal outlines on her arm, and a geometric shape that looks like petals on her torso just under her arm."
Grant Harrold, The Royal Butler, explained that she is only allowed to have these because she is so far from the throne. "These are choices that the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex will not even consider due to their ever-increasing public profiles, which mirror the Royal Family on a daily basis," he shared. "Lady Amelia Windsor is not a senior royal or a princess. As we know she is not even in the top 30 in line to the throne, so she will be aware that she can get away with personal choices such as tattoos or modeling for international fashion houses."
Still holding out hope that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get matching tats? If so, the public would never be allowed to see!
