During her much buzzed-about interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday, Meghan Markle said she was flying blind when she got welcomed into the royal family.
She didn’t know she had to curtsy to the Queen, and hadn’t even done a deep Google of her now-husband Prince Harry.
“Apparently I did a very deep curtsy, I don’t remember it,” Meghan told Oprah with a laugh, after recounting a story about practicing for a few moments outside before nervously meeting the Queen.
The Duchess said she thought she would be ready to meet such a high-profile figure, having grown up in Los Angeles around so many celebrities.
“This is not the same,” she said. “It is very easy, especially as an American, to say, ‘These are famous people.’ No, this is completely different ball game.”
Still, she said she was glad she didn’t know too much.
“Thank god I didn’t know a lot about the family,” she said. “Thank god I hadn’t researched. I would’ve been so in my head about it.”
