It was a 2018 full of adaptations for the now wife of Prince Harry, newspapers have even expressed friction between her and her sister-in-law
2018 was undoubtedly one of many changes and adaptations to the customs of the monarchy for Meghan Markle , wife of Prince Henry, in the same way she has been involved in scandals , one recent one is the rumors about her alleged disagreements with Catalina, the spouse of the Prince William, have marked the start of the year for the British royal family .
The tabloids have aired that Meghan censures her sister-in-law’s fondness for hunting and, although Buckingham Palace sources have denied that there are frictions in that area, Catherine waited this Christmas for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to leave the estate of Queen Elizabeth II in Norfolk to go hunting pheasants, partridges and ducks.
"Meghan has understood that royalty has done this for centuries and they will not change," a member of the palace told the "Daily Mail", who explained that the duchess "does not like unnecessary cruelty to animals."

Catalina, on the other hand, is a seasoned hunter and this year she has released her own shotgun, a 20-gauge light weapon, which has further spurred speculation about her disagreements with the former actress of the series "Suits", who married with Enrique in May and hopes to give birth in spring.
Both pushed aside any difference, however, during the Christmas day, in which they came to form a team in a game of Scrabble, revealed "The Sun".
"If the German and British troops could put their differences aside to play football during World War I, the feeling was that Catherine and Meghan could do the same at Scrabble," an insider inside the palace told the tabloid.
However, the newspaper claims that Enrique’s wife, 37, "made Catalina cry", 36, during a discussion about the dresses of the bridesmaids before their wedding, while the Duchess of Cambridge disapproves of the attitude of her sister-in-law with the staff at her service.
Since the wedding in Windsor, outside London, two of Meghan’s assistants have announced their intention to leave their post.
In early December, Samantha Cohen, private secretary of the Dukes of Sussex, announced that she will leave her job once Meghan’s baby is born, after 17 years in the service of the royal family.
Weeks earlier, Melissa Touabti had resigned as the Duchess’s personal assistant after six months in the post.

A source told the "Daily Mirror" that Meghan’s attitude is "dictatorial" and she often sends e-mails with requests at untimely hours.
Another person close to the palace argued instead that the duchess "is simply not afraid to express her opinions."
The duchess has also taken up tabloid space in recent days due to her complex family relationships.
Her father, Thomas Markle, assured at the end of December that he had not been in contact with her since the day before their marriage, which he did not attend.
In the absence of her father, it was Prince Charles, now her father-in-law, who accompanied her by the arm to the altar in the chapel where the wedding was celebrated.
Meghan’s sister, Smantha Markle, for her part sent a Christmas card to the Duchess asking her to meet her father, Thomas, during the holidays.
"Dad has tried to contact you and is very hurt because you are ignoring him. Life is short and you know that Dad is wonderful," wrote Samantha, 53, in a letter released by the media.
In an interview on Itv’s "Good Morning Britain" program, Thomas himself said he was disappointed and did not understand the reasons for the estrangement.
Meghan’s father alleged health reasons for not attending the wedding, although the confirmation that he would not be at the ceremony came shortly after he starred in a controversy in the British tabloids.
Before the link, it was revealed that Thomas charged 100,000 pounds (110,000 euros) for photographs in which he posed for a paparazzi, but that he posed as stolen images.
Meghan’s family problems did not end the ceremony in Windsor. Hours after the wedding, one of her nephews, Tyler Dooley, was questioned by police after trying to enter a London nightclub with a knife.
