George Christy Talks About Queen Elizabeth II, Lynn Von Kersting, Indigo Seas and more
Our hunch? He’s proposed.
Prince Harry, 31, to Meghan Markle, 36.
It appears that Queen Elizabeth II’s etiquette drill masters are addressing Meghan about the royal manners for her life anew as a princess.
To refer to Queen Elizabeth as “Your Majesty” or “Ma’am”.
How to curtsey, although not obligatory.
Dining at the royal table like a Brit.
No gum chewing or snacking on the streets, reports the New York Post’s Jane Ridley.
The soon-to-be announcement of Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan. Her mom Doria’s a yoga instructor in the Crenshaw area, where Meghan grew up. Dad Thomas Marshall’s a lighting designer.
As an actress, who majored in Theater Arts and International Relations at Northwestern University, Meghan has starred in the successful USA series, Suits, filmed in Toronto, Canada.
Meghan was wed to actor and producer Trevor Engelson from 2011 to 2013.
She and Prince Harry met during her Goodwill visit to Africa.
Sources anticipate that the engagement may be forthcoming at the end of this year. Possibly near Christmas time.
As we’ve noted, Meghan is being groomed with the manners of royalty, guided with the protocol that the royals do not, stress publicly over the demands of constant responsibilities also yea and nay of the Princess’ wardrobe.
Sixth in line for the royal throne, Prince Harry follows his father Prince Charles, brother Prince William, then children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the expectant child from Prince William and Princess Kate due in April.
“You‘ll not meet a more warm-hearted and loving beauty… not a mean bone in her being,” says Scott Downie, who has photographed the world.
”So cooperative, so kind and so much fun.”
