Meghan Markle news: Meg’s ‘extraordinary’ introduction to the Queen where Prince Harry revealed PRIVATE royal tradition


MEGHAN Markle “quickly learned” a few Royals traditions when she met the Queen for the first time – including curtsying in PRIVATE.

Royal expert Ashley Pearson detailed the “extraordinary” first meeting Meghan Markle had with the Queen in the Channel 5 documentary Harry & Meghan vs the Monarchy.

She said: “The meeting went extremely well. It actually ran over, which is an extraordinary thing for the way the Queen keeps her schedule. Meghan was warmly welcomed. Here she is – articulate, bright, intelligent, well-spoken, beautiful, elegant — what is not to like?”

Meghan herself detailed how she and Harry were going for lunch there and were joined by the Queen to Oprah Winfrey last year.

She told the US chat queen: “I remember Harry and I were in the car and he says, ‘OK, well my grandmother’s going to be there so you’re going to meet her. I said, ‘OK great! I loved my grandmother, I used to take care of my grandmother.’ He goes, ‘Right, do you know how to curtsy?’”

But she revealed had no idea that family really curtsied to the Queen in private, continuing: “I thought genuinely that’s what happens outside, that was part of the fanfare, I didn’t think that’s what happens inside.”

“How does one curtsy to the Queen?” Oprah asked.

“Deeply, to show respect,” Meghan said. “And I learned it very quickly.”
