It is certainly a humble meeting! Meghan Markle hasn’t been shy about speaking out about how difficult it was for her to adjust to life as royal, but she’s always loved Queen Elizabeth II. Though there were ups and downs between Markle and the royal family, their friendship lasted until Her Majesty’s death in September 2022.
Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth II seemed to bond from the moment they met. Queen was really curious to know her opinion. According to Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, Queen Elizabeth II once asked Meghan Markle’s opinion of President Donald Trump. Accordingly, the Queen asked him about Trump during one of their first meetings shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

Though they got off to a good start, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to step down from high-level royal duties in January 2020 caused a rift in their relationship with Markle’s mother-in-law.
Prince Harry tells how Meghan Markle met his grandmother!
In his bio, Prince Harry, 38, recalled the first time his now-wife met his grandmother, who passed away in September 2022. The Duke of Sussex wrote, “It was all very pleasant,” adding that his “grandma” had inquired about Markle’s feelings regarding Trump’s first run for President of the United States. The Archetypes podcast host was invited by the BetterUp CIO, who began dating Meghan Markle in July 2016, to meet Queen Elizabeth II at her Royal Lodge estate in Windsor, England. The incident happened just before the then 76-year-old Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the November 2016 presidential campaign. Prince Harry could understand why Queen Elizabeth II wanted an American perspective because “everyone in the world” was concerned about the upcoming political competition had spoken.

Her Majesty reportedly changed the subject to talk about Canada, believing that discussing politics with her would be a “game without a win”. When she and Prince Harry first started dating, Markle was living in Toronto, where she was also filming episodes of Suits. “Grandma looked happy. ‘Commonwealth. Good, good,’” the Invictus Games co-founder recalled in his memoir. Markle reported what happened in one of the episodes of Harry & Meghan a few weeks ago. She remembered that there was no greater moment than this when she would meet his grandmother. “You know how to curtsey, right?” Prince Harry said that to her in the car, and “I thought it was a joke,” Markle recalled.

Meghan Markle is happy to meet Queen Elizabeth II
“Nice to meet you, Your Majesty,” Meghan Markle told Queen Elizabeth II while performing her first bow in the documentary. But in her mind she wondered if the curtsy was appropriate. The California native was relieved to hear from Eugenie Brooksbank and Michael Ferguson that she “was amazing” after lunch. They probably wanted to let her know that she definitely won Queen’s heart. However, her beloved mother-in-law died in September 2022 at the age of 96, and Prince Harry and Markle attended her official state funeral later that month along with the rest of the royal family. Bench author Markle Markle even wore the Queen’s pearl earrings, a gift from the late Queen.
