Meghan Markle's Princess training will include hostage training

Meghan Markle's Princess training will include hostage training

By marrying into the Royal family, Meghan Markle is entering a whole new world of protocol, tradition and etiquette.

Royal expert Christopher Wilson wrote in the Daily Mail about the rules of the ever-changing pecking order - and the current rules on who bows down to who were first drawn up by the Queen's private secretary.

From big brother to best friend and now best man, Prince William is all geared up to be the best man for Harry's royal wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018, according to E!

As of now, there is no confirmation on whether the Duke of Cambridge has said yes to his brother's kind offer.

"Nor before Princess Anne's daughter Zara Phillips, who despite being a blood royal will still be below Meghan in the pecking order (and expected to curtsey to her if Harry is present)".

Her exhausted knees can be relieved when she encounters Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Philips, however, who will be below Markle in the pecking order and is expected to curtsey to her if Harry is in the room.

As the daughter of the Queen, Princess Anne should receive a curtsey from Markle. But not if Harry's in the room when they should curtsey to her.

The rules were updated yet again in 2012, a year after Kate and William Wednesday, to ensure the Duchess of Cambridge was behind the blood royals Anne, Alexandra, Beatrice and Eugenie.

"However, owing to the circumstances and evolution of her relationship with Charles, Camilla was moved down a peg or two".

"Without William, Kate would curtsey to Camilla; with him, she would not".

Now one of the last bastions of royal British etiquette, the curtsey has been a tradition since the 1500s, when it was brought in to replace having to drop to one's knee.

When it comes to the men, the rules are simpler - if a man has Prince in front of his name, Markle will curtsey.
