Meghan Markle is just months away from becoming a royal when she marries Prince Harry, but there’s a complicated system of etiquette when it comes to the royal family that she’ll have to master.
Of course, the American actress will have to cursty, a British sign of respect that is done upon greeting, for Queen Elizabeth, but what other members of the family will have her taking a dip?
Myka Meier, founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette, tells PEOPLE the last time the Queen updated the Order of Precedence in the Royal Household, which essentially lays out who must curtsy to whom, was when Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2012. It’s expected to be updated again at the next royal marriage of Harry to Meghan in May 2018.
In addition to Queen Elizabeth, Meier says Meghan will be expected to curtsy to Prince Philip, Princes Charles and his wife Camilla Duchess of Cornwall. She’ll also be bending and bowing for Prince William and Kate, due to his position in line for the throne.
