SINCE joining the royal family, Meghan Markle has met countless people on her various public engagements.
But before she heads to an appearance, she is fully prepped with crucial advice from her aides to make sure the event goes smoothly.

Speaking to the Sun Online, Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier said: “Whoever they are greeted by, they will be in advance fully prepped on who they are meeting, the correct formal greeting whether it is physical or verbal, likely both.
“That will be hugely important and will be something that the royal aides will take care of ahead of time.”
For formal dinners, the etiquette expert revealed that the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be sat strategically apart and will be told topics to talk about.
Myka, founder of Beaumont Etiquette, said: “They will be seated very strategically at these formal banquets. Couples are usually in many cultures not sat together, they are sat very strategically next to people who are deemed to be very important.

“You would seat someone who had similar interest or a status. They [Meghan Markle and Prince Harry] are likely to be sat apart. Both of them are known to be extraordinary conversationalists and they are quite used to it.
“They will probably also given talking points and given background and history so they feel comfortable with conversation.
“They will know politically and socially what is going on and any exciting events that are going on so they can always keep conversations going.”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are to jet off Down Under this month for their royal tour, and Myka revealed that the pair will be briefed on the different cultures they will encounter.
She said: “That could be on the plane, if they had any questions they would use this time to make sure they are ready to go as soon as they get off the plane. That’s the moment their royal duty starts again.
“You always adopt the etiquette and protocol of the country you are in. They will do whatever is customary in the country they land in.
“We have seen them [the royal family] practise certain greetings in certain cultures.
“We saw the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge doing the nose kiss in order to show respect.”

Part of being respectful to the different people they will meet on the royal tour, will be with the clothes they wear.
Myka said: “They will bring pieces from their own wardrobes but you’ll also see them take on pieces from local designers as a nod of respect and solidary.
“The Duchess of Sussex is all about experiencing cultures, she loves travel, we know this about her already.
“I think we will see her less in more structured British designs and adopting local traditions and designers.”
