Marrying into a family with distinct traditions and habits can be scary. But when Meghan Markle entered the royal corridors, this phrase took on a whole new meaning. Amid royal formality and engagements, she forgot she had to courtesy the queen. In the Oprah interview, she said that she first encountered the queen at the Royal Lodge, where Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew live. She was astonished to learn that the Queen was on her way to the residence after finishing her church service commitments in Windsor.
