Before Meghan Markle became the Duchess of Sussex by marrying Prince Harry, she was taught the ways of the British royal family. It has been reported that Meghan was shown the ropes by her then future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.

In late April 2018, before the royal wedding, William Hanson, an etiquette expert, told Express that it was likely Meghan would look to Kate for “tips.”

“Meghan won’t have a specific tutor, but the royal household and other members of the Royal Family who have ‘married in’ will be passing on their knowledge to the newest addition,” Hanson told the outlet. “As the most recent person to marry into the Royal Family The Duchess of Cambridge will be of the most use to Meghan, I would imagine.”

The expert said it was likely Meghan would look to the royal to learn about Queen Elizabeth II’s etiquette rules in order to represent her at official engagements. Hanson added that learning about conversational techniques and how to prevent wardrobe malfunctions would also be a topic of discussion between the two.

Though, the expert remarked it would not be Kate doing all the work. Hanson shared it was likely Prince Harry would also be guide his partner as she transitioned into royalty.

“Her fiancé will, of course, also be sharing his considerable knowledge too,” he said. “I suspect Prince Harry may have given her an amusing run down on the many weird and wonderful ways of the English class system.”

Still, Hanson commented Meghan would essentially get a pass if she were to make a mistake, saying, “But as an American, I think Meghan will be given a ‘get out of jail’ free card with all that – unlike Catherine – as the English do often excuse foreigners from knowing the ins and outs of it all.”
