Meghan Markle has had to make more than a few adjustments since becoming the Duchess of Sussex, and an official member of the royal family.
While some of her majesty's rules are relatively easy to follow, this one apparently required quite a bit of adjusting too! According to Sir William Heseltine (one of the Queen’s private secretaries) when staying with prince Harry's grandmother, the Queen, members of the royal family should wait until the Queen retires to bed, before they also hit the hay, reports The Sun.
He revealed that it's considered “bad form” to go to bed before the Queen. In an interview for the book, The Royals in Australia, Sir William revealed “nobody felt it right to go to bed before the Queen did”.
“For Diana the long royal evenings were agony,” he explained.
“There’d be an hour or so in the sitting room of everyone sitting around making conversation, and nobody felt it right to go to bed before the Queen did.
“And Diana was driven to such extremes that she’d excuse herself and go to bed, which was thought to be rather bad form, going to bed before the Queen.”
