Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are opening up in a tell-all special with Oprah, in which no topic was off limits. And Meghan went ahead and talked about the day she met Harry's grandmother. AKA the Queen. Casual.

"There wasn't actually a huge formality the fist time I met Her Majesty the Queen," Meghan said, explaining that she and Harry "were going to lunch at Royal Lodge which is where some other members of the family live." Turns out the Queen was "finishing a church service there in Windsor so she was gonna be at the house."

The problem? Harry asked Meghan if she knew how to curtsy on their way there and she...did not. Which, understandable! Who the hell knows how to curtsy! "I thought that was what happens outside," she said. "I said, but it's your grandmother." Harry responded, "it's the Queen," and that's when Meghan knew things were different in his family.

Meghan said she learned how to curtsy right before meeting the Queen, saying "I learned it very quickly right in front of the house," and that Harry and Princess Eugenie taught her. "We went in and I met her, and apparently I did a very deep curtsy," she said. "I don't remember it.... And then we sat there and we chatted and it was lovely and easy."

Meghan also stressed later in the interview that her relationship with the Queen has always been great, saying "The Queen, for example ,has always been wonderful to me."

You love all the deets on the royals. So do we. Let’s overanalyze them together.
