A mistake of royal proportions? Meghan Markle might need forgotten to curtsy to Queen Elizabeth II after the newly minted duchess’ marriage ceremony to Prince Harry on Saturday, May 19, and Twitter went right into a frenzy.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked up the aisle collectively after they had been married, however some suppose they didn’t stick to royal protocol by forgoing bowing and curtsying to the 92-year-old queen after they handed by the place the monarch was seated with different members of the household, together with her husband, Prince Philip, and Duchess Kate.
Viewers reacted on social media to what some perceived as a pretend pas. “Did Meghan not curtsy to the Queen or did I just miss it?!” one particular person tweeted.
“Could someone please tell me why she did not curtsy to the Queen?” one other wrote. “Is this a new protocol? Because she is American? Because she forgot? What?”
“The consensus @whatmegwore HQ is that the curtsy was skipped,” an account devoted to the duchess’ vogue decisions tweeted. “Perhaps because Meghan is still an American citizen?”
Interestingly, Prince William and Duchess Kate did bow and curtsy to the queen after their 2011 marriage ceremony ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
Harry and Meghan exited St George’s Chapel and shared their first kiss as a married couple on the venue’s steps as lots of of company appeared on. They then proceeded to hop in the Ascot Landau carriage for a experience round Windsor. The duke and duchess beamed as they waved to onlookers.

Did they bow and curtsy to The Queen? I didn’t see it, however the cameras have been very messy all through so it’d simply not have been caught.
