Meghan Markle is expected to face her first royal initiation when she heads to Scotland for the first time with the royal family this summer.

While speaking with Express, Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal expert, said, “An invitation to Balmoral, where the Queen is expected to remain until September, is traditionally part of the initiation into the royal family.”

According to Matthew Robinson, a journalist for Express, the first Balmoral initiation of a non-royal spouse was conducted by Princess Diana. However, the late mom of two was less fond of the country retreat than her royal counterparts.

“The Balmoral test was initially passed by Diana who was later unhappy and bored there,” Fitzwilliams seconded.

However, the royal expert said that he hopes the Duchess of Sussex will have the best with the Queen and the other members of the royal family during her trip.

“Meghan’s relations with the Queen are excellent especially after the success of their joint visit to Cheshire in June and the omens are extremely propitious for a highly successful visit. Harry, after all reportedly introduced Meghan to the Queen at Balmoral last September,” he said.

Balmoral also holds a special place in Prince William and Prince Harry’s hearts because that’s where they stayed following the death of Princess Diana on Aug. 31, 1997.

Meanwhile, Princess Eugenie previously revealed that her grandmother is happiest when she is in Balmoral.

“It’s the most beautiful place on earth. I think Granny is the happiest there. Walks, picnics, dogs, a lot of dogs – there’s always dogs and people coming in and out all the time. Family-wise we’re all there, so it’s a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa to be – for us to come and see them up there where you just have room to breathe and run,” she said.

As of late, the actual date of Markle’s arrival in Balmoral has not yet been revealed.
