Meghan Markle discusses her initial encounters with Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Following her first encounter with Prince William and Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle claims she came to understand the true essence of the monarchy.
Wales reportedly offered the Duchess of Sussex, who describes herself as a “hugger,” a formal reaction when she approached them to embrace them.
Meghan revealed in her Netflix documentary, “They came over for dinner when Will and Kate came over and I had met her for the first time.” “I remember I was barefoot and wearing tattered pants.”
I’ve always been a hugger, like, she continued. “I had no idea that actually jarred a lot of Brits,” said the speaker.
I guess I would start to realize very quickly that the formality on the exterior was carried over to the inside, she said.
Then you close the door and you can relax, she said. “There is a forward-facing manner of being.” But that formality is present on both sides, and I was surprised by it.
She admits, “Looking back, it’s really amusing because I know so much now. And I’m so glad I didn’t because I could just be who I am without having to put so much effort into being ready.
