Meghan Markle, amidst all the controversies surrounding her and husband Prince Harry, has proven that grace and poise are what make her truly royal.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been under the scrutiny of the British tabloids, and yet a royal etiquette expert said that they have been nothing less than gracious.
The opinion came after Meghan's confession about her struggles as a member of the royal family. The couple revealed a lot about the royal life in their recently released ITV exclusive documentary entitled "Meghan and Harry: An African Journey."
In an interview with Yahoo U.K., Myka Meier -- a royal etiquette expert -- said that she is saddened by the scrutiny Meghan is under. She believes that what the press is doing is not proper etiquette at all.
"She has handled herself with utmost grace and poise," Meier told Yahoo U.K.. She thinks that those are qualities that everyone should have. Everyone can learn it only from Meghan.
During the candid interview she gave Bradby of ITV for the African documentary, Meghan opened about her struggles of being a mother. She also spoke of the adjustments she had to submit herself into just a year into the marriage with Prince Harry.
Markle admitted feeling vulnerable at times, especially because she is trying to cope with the strong interest the British tabloids have been showing.
"I never thought that this life would be easy, but I also thought that it would be fair," Meghan confessed.
The Duchess of Sussex also revealed that she often had conversations about it with Prince Harry, emphasizing to her husband that it was not enough to simply survive. She emphasized how important it is to thrive and still feel happy about everything.
Before their scheduled six-week leave from royal duties, Meghan appeared alongside husband Prince Harry to the Field of Remembrance outside Westminster Abbey. They paid their respects to the men and women who sacrificed their lives to put an end to conflicts across the decades.
The couple was seen bowing their heads after putting a cross on a larger one made of poppies. In front of them are erected crosses arranged by military units representing the unsung heroes of conflicts over the years beginning World War I.
This was Meghan's debut to this royal ceremony. Once again, she has shown how truly gracious she is. With poise and elegance, Meghan was seen in another one of the royal engagements where all eyes were on her as if waiting for her to make a mistake.
But the Duchess of Sussex is a picture of strength and wisdom, much like the late Princess Diana.
