Prince Harry gave Meghan Markle a heads-up by cautioning his future wife to be cautious of a “trap” set by the late Queen Elizabeth.
Meghan first met Queen Elizabeth II in October 2016, not long after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s relationship became well-known.
In Harry’s autobiography Spare, he writes that when Meghan first met his grandmother, she said, “Fun! I adore grandmothers.
The Duke had warned his prospective wife about one trap she should aware of because he knew it wasn’t what it seemed to be.
Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew’s previous lover, provided Meghan advice on how to curtsy to the late Queen when the couple visited her prior to their meeting.
Sarah also advised her to be careful not to speak over the late monarch. Despite suggestions that she should first be addressed as “Your Majesty” before being called “Ma’am.”
In his memoir, Harry attested that Meghan did not interrupt his grandma and that she curtsied well.
Harry stated in Spare, “Everyone complimented Meg on her curtsy. So good! So deep!”
