Meghan Markle Reveals The First Time She Met The Queen & What Exactly Happened?

today9 March 2021

Background

So, everyone’s aware of Meghan and Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah, right? And during those conversations, we learned a lot, like a lot, of jaw dropping events. All of it centered around their awful treatment of Meghan. 

But one of the (most) surprising stories we got to hear was when Meghan Markle walked us through her very first meeting with her future husband’s grandmother, the Queen of England. Surprisingly, her story wasn’t far off from most meeting-the-parents tales: a little awkward, a little humorous, but mostly easy.

“There wasn’t actually a huge formality the first time I met Her Majesty the Queen,” Markle told Winfrey during the CBS special Oprah With Megan and Harry. “We were going to lunch at Royal Lodge…and it turned out the queen was finishing a church service there in Windsor. And so she was gonna be at the house.”

She remembers turning to Harry and expressing her excitement at meeting his grandmother because she’d had a special relationship with her own. “And he says, ‘Do you know how to curtsy?’ I thought genuinely that that was what happens outside,” Markle explained. “I thought that was part of the fanfare. I didn’t think that’s what happens inside. And I said, ‘But it’s your grandmother,’ and he goes, ‘It’s THE queen.’ And that was really the first moment that the penny dropped.”

“I learned [how to curtsy] very quickly right in front of the house,” she said. “We just practiced and then walked in…And I met her and apparently I did a very deep curtsy—I don’t remember it—and then we just sat there and we chatted. And, um, it was lovely and easy and I think, thank God I hadn’t known a lot about the family. Thank God I hadn’t researched. I would have been so in my head about all of this.”

“The Queen has always been wonderful to me,” Meghan later added. “It made me think of my grandmother: She’s always been warm and inviting.”
