One month into marrying Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle is already scheduled for an overnight trip with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth! The pair will visit Cheshire, England, together on June 14, and according to a royal expert, the Queen will use the “away day” as an intense princess boot camp for Meghan!
“It’s all about the monarchy. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown,” Ingrid explained, adding that the Queen doesn’t want to tarnish her 70-year reign as England’s monarch.
“She doesn’t want 70 years of hard work to be for nothing. I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days,” Ingrid shared.

Added the Queen’s former press secretary, Charles Anson: “It is the way of the royal family — all part of the training and getting used to being in public life and under public scrutiny. Showing people the ropes is a high priority for the Queen.”
During the visit, the Queen and Meghan will meet with school children, open a bridge, and view a local theater production. “The initiative must have come from the Queen,” Robert Lacey, historical consultant for The Crown, told People.
“It’s not something Meghan or Harry would have asked for. It’s an exciting move. Perhaps only now do we realize that it has been one of Elizabeth’s skills to modernize the monarchy without appearing overtly to be doing so — and this is the latest sign of it,” he suggested.
