Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton, celebrated Commonwealth Day with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and many other royal family members where the Duchess of Sussex proceeded to greet her superiors with a curtsey. Scroll through for all the details.
Meghan, 37, looked stunning in a white ensemble which included a matching white hat and emerald green heels. Harry, 34, was all smiles as he escorted his wife into the Westminster Abbey church on March 11, wearing a navy blue suit and a light pink tie.
Kate, 37, wore a fashionable red dress coat, a matching hat and grey suede stilettos. William, 36, opted to wear a black suit and a red tie.
While making their way inside, both Duchesses were seen greeting each other with a kiss on the cheek while the royal brothers shook hands.
Officially becoming a part of the family since April 2011 and dating William many years before that, Kate greeted Prince Charles with a double kiss on the cheek while Meghan first dipped to a curtsey and then gave him a friendly kiss on the cheek.
And while Kate was a bit more casual with her father-in-law, once the Queen walked into the church, Kate, Meghan and Camilla Shand all greeted the 92-year-old with a proper curtsey. They bowed again while the monarch said hello to guests.
“There is no hard and fast rule about curtsying. There is such a lot of nonsense published about this. There is nothing written down about this, even for members of the royal family. People normally just do what they feel comfortable with," a palace insider told People.
Meghan is reportedly expected to curtsy to the Queen, Prince Philip, Charles and Camilla but a source revealed that “even when a member of the public doesn’t curtsy, the Queen doesn’t take offense.”
