TBH, this is going to be a surprise!
Between Prince Harry and Meghan Marklenew documentary series of, Harry & Meghanout on Thursday, the suit alum reveals that she learned the realities of life as a royal the hard way. Recalling a time when a couple invited each other Prince William and Princess Catherine aka Kate Middleton came to dinner, early in her relationship with Archewell founder, California native built:
“When Will and Kate arrived and I met her for the first time, they came to dinner. I remember wearing ripped jeans and barefoot.”
This might be casual attire for a casual family gathering, but not when the royals are involved!
While welcoming her fiancé, the actress stepped forward for a hug – something she wasn’t very well received, she recalls:
“Like I’m a hugger, always a hugger. I didn’t realize it was really upsetting for a lot of Britons.”
Addressing the many rules of etiquette that the royal family follows, Meghan noted that she did not realize that the Prince and Princess of Wales (and all members of the royal family) continue to act professionally both in public AND in private, she continued:
“I guess I’ll start to understand very quickly that form is on the outside, done on the inside.”
As many people think, in the past Resolved or no deal suitcase girl expected formality to be left out the door at the end of a royal working day – and especially when only the two brothers and their partner met for dinner – but it wasn’t:
“There is a forward-looking way of life and then you close the door and you relax right now. But that form gives both sides. And that surprised me.”
Huh. That’s weird – and makes for a very annoying dinner party if you don’t want to have to go on like this all night! But we have to say, Harry probably should have warned her better!! Maybe he’s used to interacting formally with members of his family, that doesn’t come to mind?
While feeling a bit flustered at the moment, Meghan is really glad she didn’t follow proper etiquette, she reflects:
“It’s funny if I look back on it now because now I know so much. And I’m glad I didn’t because I could really be myself without too much preparation.”
Maybe this is why Meghan and Kate have there are a lot of problems? They can’t just relax and get to know each other! Thinking, readers Perezcious? Will this bother you? Sound OFF (below)!
