Meghan Markle reportedly recreated her first meeting with Queen Elizabeth as she saw her coffin for the first time at the Palace of Westminster, where she did a ‘deep curtsy’ in front of the coffin, reported Mirror UK.

As per royal tradition, woman do a normal curtsy when they see the monarch for the first time that day, while men greet with a bowed neck.

However, on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, Meghan did a deeper curtsy than normal in front of the Queen’s coffin which, as per the outlet, was a throwback to her first meeting with the Queen during which Meghan herself shared that she did a ‘deep’ curtsy.

Talking to Oprah Winfrey about meeting the Queen for the very first time as Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan had shared: “I remember Harry and I were in the car, and he says, ‘OK, my grandmother is there so we’re going to meet her,'”. “And I said, ‘Oh great, I love grandmas.’ […] ‘But, right, do you know how to curtsy?'”

Meghan continued: “I learned it very quickly… Right in front of the house, we just practiced and then walked in. […] I met her and, apparently, I did a very deep curtsy.”

This comes as Meghan and Harry remain in the UK for the Queen’s funeral, scheduled to take place on September 19, 2022.

The 96-year-old Queen passed away on September 8, 2022 after prolonged health and mobility issues.
