Meghan Markle has to curtsy to Kate Middleton and other royals


Meghan Markle’s life was forever altered when she spoke her vows and married into the royal family.

On the day of her wedding to Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth II proclaimed her a Duchess.

“There are no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting The Queen or a member of the Royal Family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms,” according to the royal family’s official website.

Of course, Markle curtsys to the queen, as well as Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, and Camilla. Prince William and Kate Middleton, her future brother and sister-in-law, are also deserving of a curtsy due to William’s status as a future king.

Fortunately, she has Prince Harry and other older royals to advise her, and she is said to get along well with Charles, William, and Kate.

Even though there are now two duchesses on the block, Markle will have to curtsy to her new sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.


The reason for this is that, while Kate is a Duchess, as Prince William’s future Queen Consort, she outranks Meghan.

Kate is married to the second in line to the throne and the mother of third, fourth, and fifth children.

Meghan is required to curtsy to anyone in the Royal Family who is higher in rank than her, which is why she must still do so to Kate.

According to The Telegraph, when Kate Middleton married Prince William, the queen updated the Order of Precedence and instructed Middleton to curtsy to “blood princesses” — Princesses Anne, Alexandra, Beatrice, and Eugenie. They outrank Middleton because they were born into the royal family, not married into it.

Following in the footsteps of his grandmother and father, Prince Charles, Prince William, Duke Of Cambridge, will one day be King, and Kate will be his Queen Consort, the title accorded to a King’s wife.

When it comes to other family members, such as Prince Harry’s cousins Beatrice and Eugenie, things get a little more complicated.

To add to the confusion for the new duchess, certain family members will only have to curtsy if their husband or wife is present.

Because she is Harry’s wife and is sixth in line to the throne, she will not have to curtsy to his cousins and Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice because she officially outranks them.

If Harry isn’t there, though, everything changes, and Markle will be forced to curtsy to them since they are then technically superior to her.

Sophie, Prince Edward’s wife, is an excellent illustration of this.

Despite being a member of the royal family since 1999, Sophie will not get a curtsy from Meghan unless her husband, Prince Edward, is present.

Zara Phillips, on the other hand, is not a Princess and will never outrank Meghan, therefore she won’t have to curtsy to her.

The Duchess of Sussex’s curtsy rating comes after it was revealed that she would undergo “training” to become a more effective royal.

The Queen, who is the head of the Royal Family, is greeted by all royals with a bow and a curtsy.

The pair has decided to postpone their honeymoon in order to focus on royal responsibilities. On Tuesday, they made their first public appearance as husband and wife at a Buckingham Palace garden party celebrating Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.

Samantha Cohen, the queen’s assistant private secretary, will tutor the former actress in learning the royal ropes.
