WATCH: Meghan Markle's first curtsy to the Queen in public

"Right in front of the house we practiced and ran in," she recalled. "Fergie ran out and said, 'Do you know how to curtsy?' Apparently, I did a very deep curtsy, I don't remember it, and then we sat there, and we chatted."

While that particular meeting was private, cameras caught the moment Meghan curtsied to the Queen for the first time in public during her first Christmas with the royal family in December 2017.
