‘You go first’

Meghan’s awk­ward car mo­ment with the Queen

Toronto Sun - - NEWS - SARAH DOKTOR

Meghan ap­peared to be a lit­tle con­fused by royal pro­to­col on her first of­fi­cial out­ing with­out her hus­band Prince Harry on Thurs­day.

The new­est mem­ber of the Royal Fam­ily was ac­com­pa­ny­ing the Queen to an event in Cheshire, Eng­land, when she ap­peared to blank on car eti­quette. As the pair pre­pared to get into their wait­ing Bent­ley the for­mer ac­tress asked the 92-year-old monarch who should get into the car first.

“What is your pref­er­ence?” The Duchess of Sussex asked.

“You go first,” the Queen replied.

While Markle may be flus­tered her pro­to­col mishap was caught on cam­era, eti­quette coach Wil­liam Han­son took to Twit­ter to say it was re­ally no big deal.

“Not big faux pas on HRH The Duchess of Sussex’s side — just an in­no­cent lack of knowl­edge.”
