This unprecedented transparency has caught the attention of people around the world, many identifying with the struggles these royals are facing. On October 22, Meghan continued her royal duties — despite the announcement that she and Harry will be taking six weeks off royal duties — and attended the One World Summit, where she hugged Kate Robertson, founder of One Young World on stage, take a look!

Although it is tradition for women to courtesy any member of the royals family, there are no obligatory rules on greeting the Queen or her family members. A handshake is acceptable and customary, but hugging is not often the approach royals tend to take.

The former Suits actress is known to have broken a few royal protocols throughout her time as a royal, but has continuously shown her desire to fit in and be the best example she can be for women, mothers and people all over the world.
