Meghan Markle has to observe the Queen’s bedtime rule when staying along with her Meghan Markle has to observe a particular bedtime rule when staying with the Queen The protocol was mentioned by a former personal secretary to Her Majesty As a Royal, the Duchess of Sussex has needed to make many new changes By Ben Rabinovich Printed: 17:17, 27 July 2018 | Up to date: 17:17, 27 July 2018 The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle isn’t allowed to eat garlic or seafood overseas, and she will’t maintain palms in public along with her husband Prince Harry. And now one other Royal rule that Meghan has to observe has come to mild—and it’s to do along with her bedtime, or somewhat the Queen’s. Based on Sir William Heseltine, a former personal secretary of the Queen, nobody is allowed to go to mattress earlier than Her Majesty. In a 2015 Telegraph interview for The Royals in Australia, Heseltine mentioned that ‘no person felt it proper to go to mattress earlier than the Queen did,’ including that it was ‘somewhat unhealthy type’. The bedtime rule reportedly prompted one Royal member ‘agony’, Heseltine mentioned. ‘For Diana the lengthy royal evenings have been agony. There’d be an hour or so within the sitting room of everybody sitting round making dialog, and no person felt it proper to go to mattress earlier than the Queen did. Based on the Queen’s former personal secretary, Meghan must observe a bedtime rule ‘And Diana was pushed to such extremes that she’d excuse herself and go to mattress, which was considered somewhat unhealthy type, going to mattress earlier than the Queen.’ Meghan has already stayed with the Queen at Sandringham over the Christmas interval. Nevertheless, Meghan shouldn’t have to remain on the Queen’s residences too usually. Meghan and her husband Prince Harry have already got their very own house, Nottingham Cottage, in Kensington Palace and York Cottage on the Sandringham Property. And the Queen has additionally given the newly-married couple Adelaide Cottage in Windsor Fort as a marriage present. The cottage was in-built 1831, however its most well-known resident was Group Captain Peter Townsend, who famously had an affair with Princess Margaret. The bedtime protocol just isn’t the one factor the brand new Duchess of Sussex must regulate to. Together with not with the ability to eat sure meals in sure locations, together with her favourites at Buckingham Palace, it’s unlikely that Royal followers will see Meghan with darkish nail polish or a gown that exposes her knees, each issues reportedly disliked by the Queen. It’s also extremely unlikely that one will see Meghan in wedges anytime she is close to Her Majesty, given the monarch is famously not a fan of them. Commercial Share or touch upon this text:
