Prince Harry Telling Meghan Markle to Curtsy to the Queen

Prince Harry Told Meghan When to Curtsy to the Queen, Because That's What Husbands Do

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - JUNE 09: (EMBARGOED FOR PUBLICATION IN UK NEWSPAPERS UNTIL 24 HOURS AFTER CREATE DATE AND TIME) Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex stand on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping The Colour 2018 on June 9, 2018 in London, England. The annual ceremony involving over 1400 guardsmen and cavalry, is believed to have first been performed during the reign of King Charles II. The parade marks the official birthday of the Sovereign, even though the Queen's actual birthday is on April 21st. (Photo by Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images)

Like all things in life, there's a learning curve for royal etiquette, and luckily for Meghan Markle, she's got Prince Harry right by her side to guide her. Over the weekend, the newly titled Duchess of Sussex attended her first Trooping the Colour, which is the official military celebration for the queen's birthday, and she fit right in with the royal family. While the photos of Meghan and Harry were nothing short of gorgeous, the moment she asked him if she was supposed to curtsy stole our hearts (OK, fine, Savannah Phillips shushing Prince George was up there too).

Standing alongside sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Meghan curtsied perfectly to Queen Elizabeth II, with Prince Harry adding a bow. Although some people thought she forgot to show her respect to the queen at her wedding, Meghan had Harry on standby to make sure all curtsies were done at the right time — we know, the royal curtsy rules can be very confusing. Check out the moment Meghan asks Harry, "Do it?" to which he responds, "Yes," in the video clip below. It is so sweet.
