On other dates, too, she reportedly felt thrown in at the deep end about the topics she was allowed to bring up, how to dress, or how to behave. "There's no class where someone says, 'Sit like this, use that fork, don't do that, then curtsey, wear that hat.' There is no such thing. I had to learn a lot. Also the national anthem – I googled it," claims Meghan.
Statements that palace officials have now dismissed as "outright lies." "There was preparation for everything, walkabouts - despite being engaged to someone who had done hundreds of them - clothes, everything. The level of support was intense," a source told the Sunday Times. Six months before the wedding, Meghan was handed a 30-page document by Prince Harry's private secretary at the time, Ed Lane Fox, filled with instructions and contacts for navigating royal life. It was then up to Meghan to do something with this information. She is said to have only met once with the Queen's then private secretary, Sir Christopher Geidt, and a fashion expert.
There are also conflicting statements about the wedding invitation for Meghan's niece Ashleigh Hale. Meghan explains in the documentary that she had a very close relationship with the daughter of her half-sister Samantha Markle for a long time, and that is why she also wanted to invite her to her wedding in 2018. But the press office of Kensington Palace would have advised her against it. The public would get a strange impression if the half-sister is not invited but her daughter is.
Palace circles also denied this representation to the "Sunday Times". "It didn't happen that way. We never gave any advice or guidance as to who of her family or friends should or shouldn't come to her wedding." Another source told the Mail on Sunday: "It was entirely up to Meghan which friends and family to invite to her wedding. There was no discussion, it was her choice."
On December 15, three more parts of the documentary will be released. They should also contain passages that provide topics for conversation.
