Is this the cute reason for Harry and Meghan's wedding cake choice?

08 December 2017

While the royal wedding is sure to be a highlight of 2018, people across the world are mostly looking forward to seeing more of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship, with the royal couple attracting a lot of fans.

Meghan will also have to bend her knees and bow her head to her sister-in-law Kate Middleton, and Camilla Parker-Bowles, as they are both future queens.

But the order of succession to the throne - which currently sees Prince Harry sit at fifth in line - isn't the only royal ranking that Meghan Markle will now have to learn.

Curtseying in the Royal court is not just a physical act, but also political.

One thing that everyone knows about the royal family is that it's highly hierarchical.

She will only be expected to sometimes curtsey to Sophie, Countess of Wessex - who is a one-time commoner but a royal since 1999 - if her husband Prince Edward is in the room. However, if Harry is by her side, Eugenie and Beatrice will curtsey to her.

With the royal couple's nuptials in sight, many have been wondering what we can expect on the big day - from who will be Meghan Markle's wedding dress designer to Prince Harry's choice of best man - spoiler alert - it might not be Prince William.

"I'm very pleased. I'm delighted", the 73-year-old, a former lighting director for TV soaps and sitcoms, told the paper in Mexico where he now lives.

Her exhausted knees can be relieved when she encounters Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Philips, however, who will be below Markle in the pecking order and is expected to curtsey to her if Harry is in the room.
