We have learned that as she is getting ready to marry Prince Harry, American actress Meghan Markle is also trying to learn all of the Royal rules and regulations but apparently, she is struggling quite a lot. No worries though – the Queen and her fiancé are on her side!
‘Meghan’s been on this crazy fairytale rollercoaster, and it is only just starting to sink in how different her life will be from now on. Being an actress, she is used to being in the public eye, but nothing can really prepare someone to suddenly become a member of the British royal family.’
‘It is not just the fact that as a royal her every move will be scrutinized and analyzed, she has also got to learn a ludicrous amount of etiquette, and rules that are specific to the royal family—many of which seemingly make no sense or serve any real purpose,’ one insider at the palace revealed.
The source went on to say that ‘The lunch Meghan attended during the week was her first real taste of what life’ll be like, and it was quite overwhelming.’
It’s always difficult to meet the extended family of your fiancé, even if he is just a regular man so we can only imagine how much more stressful it is when your significant other is a royal.
That being said, even with Harry always supporting her and with Kate being a great help, everything is still ‘pretty daunting’ for Meghan.
Some of the etiquette Markle needs to learn involves her addressing different people by their right titles, a whole new way of interacting with people, holding a cup in a certain way, eating ‘royally’ and even being able to recognize which topics of conversation are totally Okay and which are complete taboo.
