According to TMZ, the training will last for one whole week and Kate Middleton and Princess Diana also had to go through it before they married into the royal family.

It comes after Meghan was also reportedly said to have gone through princess training before

“Meghan has been given a list of pre-wedding rules from the palace to ensure she’s not doing anything which would put her or her family in an unfavourable light,” a source told Woman’s Day.

According to the publication, Markle enrolled in classes, which focused on British history.

She’s also reportedly received etiquette lessons and was being schooled on the type of clothes she should wear.

During her official engagement interview with the BBC Meghan revealed that while she may have been famous, she wasn’t used to the intense royal spotlight.

“There’s a misconception that because I have worked in the entertainment industry that this would be something I would be familiar with,” she said.

“But even though I had been on my show for I guess six years at that point, and working before that, I’ve never been part of tabloid culture.”
