Over the past few years, the next-gen royals have voiced their determination to modernize the monarchy. Even 91-year-old Queen Elizabeth II herself has proven to be a forward thinker, approving changes in the laws of succession to give her female grandchildren a definitive place in the hierarchy by insuring they aren't leapfrogged by younger male siblings, and stoically gritting her teeth through her son's divorce and eventual second marriage to a divorcée.
But some things, no matter how deep into the 21st century we get, just cannot change. Yet.
Now that she's officially engaged to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has confirmed, not only that the latest season of Suits was her last, but that she'll be giving up acting in order to be a full-time royal, a quirky job that comes with its own unique demands and responsibilities (and, presumably, a very nice retirement package).
Not that Markle would agree with that summation, exactly.
