    Ah ha ha. What a delightful read. Now wondering if this was aimed only at Meghan or pretty much any new entrant to the UK. I know I’d love it if it was laid out in such a hilarious fashion.

      Oh thanx. Just finished it 10 mins ago! Had fun writing it. Thanks for popping by and commenting. Jill

    I sincerely hope she takes note. You could probably do a whole new other on British food and British slang. Oh and I assumed it was non-debatable about Claire Foy. She is just amazing as our Lizzie.

      Hey Hayley yes totally agree – Claire Foy is my new favourite actress. I am practising delayed gratification on Series 2 of The Crown ! Thanks for commenting. Enjoyed writing that. I might do a follow up on food and / or slang. Great idea. Jill x

      Thanks Maja. I enjoyed writing that one. And yes she’ll be a gorgrous bride. I’ll be glued to the TV that day! Jill x

    Such a fun post Jill and full of helpful tips. I’m sure she’ll be reading this everyday to remind herself of what she’s got to know from now on.

      HI Debbie thanks for commenting. I had fun writing that one. And yes I expect Meghan will be tuning in right now 🙂 Jill x

    I think she will have a lot to learn as an American coming into the Royal Family. You could be her go to person for learning her new role in the UK. Or, just a whole new blog dedicated to helping those of us who are not British, but long to be?!

      Hi Cherie. Now that’s an offer I couldn’t refuse 👍. Thanks for commenting. Jill x

    That’s Meghan’s orientation taken care of. You’ve saved the British taxpayer a fortune. Although she seems well-prepared already eg in making reference to the Commonwealth – perhaps she could write a blog to explain it to US.

    • 9 December 2017 / 9:56 am

      Haha. I aim to please. X

    LOL – I’ll be interested to see how much of that Meghan picks up on;)

    • 9 December 2017 / 10:45 am

      HI Fiona I expect she’s taking notes as we speak 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to read. Jill

    Lovely post. I’m always looking for more understanding of anything British even if I’m not going to marry a royal, although, as long as I’m here, are there any eligible British princesses hanging around?

    • 9 December 2017 / 11:44 am

      Hey Phil thanks for that. Always good to hear from you. Well there’s Eugenie and Beatrice! Jill

  9. 9 December 2017 / 11:29 am

    I cannot wait to see her in action! A really exciting venture

    • 9 December 2017 / 11:44 am

      Thanks for reading. Yes I’ll be tuned to the telly on the day of that wedding! Jill

    I had a good laugh. This was truly hilarious. I’m so very proud of Harry…we Caribbean gals have had our eyes on him… *wink wink*… and it’s been wonderful to see the outpouring of love and acceptance for them both.

    • 9 December 2017 / 7:43 pm

      Haha. That’s funny. Lovely to hear from you and I agree it’s a lovely moment to witness Jill x

    • 10 December 2017 / 8:08 am

      He Melissa you just made me LOL! Yeah Harry was a bit of a catch! And yes agree it’s been lovely to watch the news unfold. Jill’s

      Cheers Gabe. Enjoyed writing that one. Think I’ll tune in to Suits too! Jill

    What a delightful read and I’d love Meghan to get here and share her thoughts and first impressions 😉 Indians know Brits, atleast we would like to say so. Some of those things like weather talk and class is here too 🙂

    • 10 December 2017 / 9:16 am

      Hey Parul thanks for reading and commenting. It was fun to write that. Weather talk makes excellent small talk 🙂 JIll

  17. 10 December 2017 / 2:31 pm

    Oh it made me laugh to read this article – we Brits are such complicated creatures!! LOL! Love the fact you mentioned the sunbed “wars” – very handy for Meghan to know that as on honeymoon she’ll need Harry to wake up at the crack of dawn to secure the sunbed spaces! …. 😊

    • 10 December 2017 / 3:21 pm

      HI Linda I expect Harry will have the sun bed situation sorted out 🙂 Thanx for commenting. JIll

    I love it. Read from the perspective from a sarcastic Yank from the colonies, I couldn’t stop laughing. Jolly good!
