“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.

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.
