A course is being offered in New York City by professional etiquette coach Myka Meier, the founder of Beaumont Etiquette, on how to win over Prince Harry. Ahead of the royal bachelor's visit to Florida for the 2016 Invictus Games on May 2, girls in the hope of becoming a princess are queuing up for the specially designed course. The one-on-one, four-hour course takes place at the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City.
The course is designed around the young British royal, but it also offers general etiquette advice. Meier has been trained under a former member of the royal household. She said that Kate Middleton, Harry’s sister-in-law, is the perfect example to follow when it comes to royal etiquette.
The 31-year-old royal’s ex-girlfriends Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas were not carbon copies of the Duchess of Cambridge, but they reportedly knew how to style themselves effortlessly. Meier also stressed the importance of grooming.
Meanwhile, for Kate, rewears have worked well for her. Besides, confidence is what makes the cut. Another important factor to win the prince is eating — princess-style eating. “Bites need to be cut into tiny morsels so they can be finished in one or two small munches and, even more daunting, all food needs to be balanced on top of your turned fork tines – not speared,” Meier reportedly said. The most challenging thing about eating is having a soup, which Meier calls the “royal food challenge.”
As Princes William and Harry both went to Eton, they would both prefer what is known as the “Eton flick,” a special way to have soup. This apart, posture is very important. Meier suggested “the Duchess Slant,” that was made popular by Kate. And lastly, since Harry does not like selfies, basic politeness entails that a girl should keep her phone away.
