Meghan Markle Is Making History Like Never Before

The British Royal Family knows what it’s like to make history and, well, they’re doing it again. On Monday, Us Weekly reported Meghan Markle’s 2018 Teen Choice Award nomination (the noms were announced June 22) is actually groundbreaking. It’s the first time a member of the royal family has received this type of recognition.

The former Suits star is nominated alongside Blake Lively, Chadwick Boseman, Harry Styles, Migos and Zendaya. She definitely has some competition, but Markle has a good chance of winning. She continues to steal the spotlight through her style choices.

As surprising as the nom may be, what the Duchess of Sussex is nominated for certainly isn’t. She’s being honored for her fashion and is part of the Choice Style Icon category. Ever since joining the royal family and marrying Prince Harry, Markle has made a statement through her fashion, so it only makes sense she would be recognized for it.

Now that she is nominated for a Teen Choice Award, does this mean the 36-year-old royal will be at the actual ceremony? It doesn’t seem likely, especially since she’s probably busy with her other royal duties. Though, never say never. It would also be the first time a member of the royal family would be in attendance at the awards. 

Even if she wouldn’t be there in person, Markle could always accept the award (if she won) via video. A short clip of her saying thank you is all anyone would need. Plus, the moment could also serve as an opportunity for her to uplift teens everywhere by delivering a powerful message, like she’s done in the past and ever since she was a young girl. 

Markle really has become so much more than a style icon, but also a figure for women everywhere, especially women of color. So, we really need to make this happen. Everyone, start voting for the Duchess of Sussex — stat.

The Teen Choice Awards air Sunday, Aug. 12 at 8/7c on FOX, so be sure to watch. You wouldn’t want to miss Markle’s possible big moment.
