This 'Royal' feels sorry for Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle's Royal Training Will Include Preparing for Hostage Situation

It's no secret Meghan Markle has been breaking royal protocol ever since she and Prince Harry started dating a year and a half ago (from the couple's initial PDA to Meghan gracing a national magazine cover).

Traditionally, there isn't a "best man" at a royal wedding.

Now, the latest celebrity to comment on Meghan's expected new appointment in the Royal Family is Matt Smith, who is currently playing the role of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's husband, on Netflix's popular original show, The Crown.

As a successful television actress and accomplished humanitarian, 36-year-old Markle probably hasn't had to bow down to anyone in her life and career, until now.

"Nor before Princess Anne's daughter Zara Phillips, who despite being a blood royal will still be below Meghan in the pecking order (and expected to curtsey to her if Harry is present)".

And when it comes down to the male side of the royal court, Meghan will only have to curtsey to those with a "Prince" title.

Met √Čireann issue snow and ice warning ahead of the weekend
Road conditions will be in a poor state across the country and motorists are advised to be vigilant for ice and to slow down. Temperatures will be low and it will stay cold for most of next week.

She will need to curtsey to the Duchess of Cambridge, her soon to be sister-in-law.

Her exhausted knees can be relieved when she encounters Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Philips, however, who will be below Markle in the pecking order and is expected to curtsey to her if Harry is in the room.

A lovely friendship? Yes meltynauts, this is THE question that arises since Prince Harry announced his engagement with Meghan Markle who also described his ideal dress.

The 2005 document was conjured up after Princess Anne and Princess Alexandra refused to curtsey to Camilla, a divorced woman who was unpopular with the public. Though when William is around, she is not expected to curtsey to Andrew's two daughters. Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice? Yes.

Not only do Prince Harry and Markle have the Brit-and-American-in-love thing down, but we have to admit - they kind of look like grown-up versions of the characters!

Now one of the last bastions of royal British etiquette, the curtsey has been a tradition since the 1500s, when it was brought in to replace having to drop to one's knee.
