Meghan Markle recalls meeting Prince William, Kate Middleton


Meghan Markle wore a not-so-traditional outfit when she first met her future brother-in-law and sister-in-law.

Markle, 41, revealed in new Netflix series ‘Harry & Meghan’ that she was wearing ripped jeans and was ‘barefoot’ when she first met Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Sussex has admitted she was also unaware that the royal ‘formality’ was happening behind closed doors.

“I started to understand that the formality outside carries over inside, that there’s a way to be forward-facing, and then you close the door and think, ‘OK, we can let’s relax now,'” Markle said. “But this formality applies on both sides and that surprised me.”

“Even when Will and Kate came over and I first met her, I remember I was in ripped jeans, I was barefoot,” Markle admitted.

Many reports point to a rift between the two royal couples.

She also shared that she had “always been a hugger” and had no idea hugs were “really shocking to a lot of Brits”.

There have been numerous reports that the two royal couples are at odds with each other.

In October, an excerpt from Valentine Low’s book Brokers: Intrigue, Ambition, and the Power Players Behind the House of Windsor revealed that Harry had turned down William’s attempted reconciliation following the Duke’s interview and of the Duchess of Sussex with ITV on their 2019 tour of South Africa.

Harry and Meghan were also seated separately from William and Kate at Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral – and the Prince and Princess of Wales’ children Charlotte, 7, and George, 9, separated from the adults in the service.

Prince Harry and Markle’s documentary was released on Thursday with many shocking revelations besides failing to understand royal formalities – including that Harry learned a few things about his bride-to-be from the press and that their engagement interview was a “orchestrated reality show”.
