Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Have To Bow and Curtsy To Prince William and Kate Middleton After Megxit?

Everyone knows that the royal family members have certain rules and protocols that they have to follow at all times. In addition to dressing a certain way, wearing hats to appropriate engagements, and even holding their teacups in a specific manner, the royals are expected to bow and curtsy to some of the other members of the royal family.

Now that “Megxit” is in full swing, there are quite a lot of changes happening behind the palace doors. Everyone has questions regarding Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry’s future, and we can only imagine that some royal family members have questions as well!

Since they are stepping back as senior royals, just about every aspect of their lives will be different. Royal fans will miss seeing Meghan and Prince Harry make appearances, although we know that they are doing what they feel is best for themselves and their young son, Archie Harrison.

Not every aspect of “Megxit” has been confirmed, which means we can’t help but wonder one thing: Will Meghan and Prince Harry have to bow and curtsy to Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge after “Megxit”?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are stepping back from their roles as senior royals

Being a senior member of the royal family may sound like it is a life of glitz and glamour, however, that couldn’t be further from the truth. To say that it is stressful is actually an understatement, and Meghan and Prince Harry have been under a lot of pressure for the past few years.

According to The Sun, they shocked the world early in January when they announced that they would be resigning from royal duties. It does seem to make sense, though — the notoriously private couple has said that they are unhappy with royal life and the stress that comes along with it.

Meghan, in particular, has taken much more than her fair share of the backlash. Especially from the news media, who have mocked and criticized everything from her mixed-race heritage to her mothering skills when it comes to Baby Archie.

One of the things that come along with “Megxit” is that Meghan and Prince Harry will no longer be considered to be “Their Royal Highnesses.” Although Meghan has only had a title since the couple’s wedding in 2018, Prince Harry has been known as “His Royal Highness” since the day he was born.

After a few weeks of working out the details of the split, E! Online reports that Meghan and Prince Harry will no longer be entitled to use royal titles. What else comes along with “Megxit”?

Well, it turns out that the couple will no longer receive public funding. In addition, they have agreed to repay the almost $3 million of taxpayer money that was used in the extensive renovations of Frogmore Cottage, their home in Windsor.

Looks like Meghan and Prince Harry are giving up quite a lot, and it seems to be exactly what they want.

Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have to bow and curtsy to Prince William and Kate Middleton after the split is final?

One of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind is who Meghan and Prince Harry will have to bow and curtsy to. While we see some bowing and curtsying in front of the cameras, Hello! reports that it doesn’t really happen as often as we think it does.

Actually, the family members generally only bow or curtsy to Queen Elizabeth, and most people may not realize that they only have to do it if it is the first time they are seeing her on a particular day. After “Megxit” is a done deal, Prince Harry and Meghan will not have to curtsy or bow to Prince William and Kate, as that is something that they will only continue to do on those occasions when they see the queen.
