According to the rules of etiquette of the British Royal family, Meghan Markle, as the wife of Prince Harry, has no right to accept gifts from individuals that personally she did not know, “if there is concern regarding the propriety or motives of the giver”.

PETA is counting on exactly that attitude.

The basis of animal welfare principles of the organization lies the belief that animals have rights, and people must not use animals for food, for clothing, experimentation or any other purpose.
