Don’t forget when Meghan Markle went to Wimbledon, and her safety group stopped individuals from taking images anywhere close to her?? Yeah, image living subsequent to that…
There are about 400 people living on and about the Windsor Estate who do not have to.
According to The Sun, the neighbors of Meghan and Prince Harry have been issued a list of “do’s and don’t’s” when it came to interacting with the new residents of Frogmore Cottage.

Can you picture a new neighbor moving in and stopping by to let you know how to act if you see them on the sidewalk? Yeesh!
Per sources speaking to the outlet, it wasn’t a list shoved in everyone’s mailboxes but “a well-intentioned member of estate staff” who was attempting to give every person a briefing through a neighborhood meeting.
On the other hand, the guidelines have been quite strict and incorporated points about interacting with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, infant Archie, and even their dogs (Meghan has a rescue beagle named Guy, and the couple also adopted a black Lab in September, even though its name is unknown).
Here’s the reported fundamentals:
- Do not attempt to start off conversations with the Duke and Duchess
- Do not ask to see infant Archie
- Do not offer you to babysit
- Do not offer you to stroll the dogs
- Do not pet the dogs, even if they come to you
Do not pet the dogs?? Wow.
Also, that is not so substantially a list of “do’s and don’t’s” as a list of “just don’t’s”.
These are not even commoners, btw. These who reside on the Household Park and Wonderful Park places of the Windsor estate are largely Royal employees, Crown Estate personnel, and their households. One particular was not obtaining these guidelines, complaining to The Sun:
“It’s extraordinary. We’ve under no circumstances heard something like it. Absolutely everyone who lives on the estate operates for the royals and knows how to behave respectfully.”
To place it in context, they added:
“We are not told how to behave about the Queen like this. She’s incredibly delighted for individuals to greet her.”
Yeah, we’d have to agree this is not a superior appear for them. You’d specifically figure Meghan, a former Hollywood actress, would know these sorts of etiquette are largely unspoken. Then once again, this is allegedly the exact same lady who reportedly shared infant news at a different person’s wedding. (It is viewed as incredibly rude and faux pas to share engagement or infant news at a rehearsal dinner or wedding.)
But apparently Buckingham Palace understands how this all appears a spokesman came out with an explanation denying Harry and Meghan’s involvement, saying:
“The Duke and Duchess had no understanding of this briefing and no involvement in the idea or the content material. This was a nicely-intentioned briefing to support a compact regional neighborhood know how to welcome two new residents and support them with any possible encounter. There was no handout or letter. The speak was undertaken by a regional manager and was extensively viewed as getting nicely-received.”
If the list was so nicely-received, why is the Palace also attempting to place some distance amongst Harry and Meghan and this briefing?
The Royal denial continued:
“Residents meetings are regularly and routinely held to update on developing operates/events and so on. — this was not a meeting especially held to speak about the couple, it was 1 of many items discussed.”
But of course the greatest anxiety was after once again, this was NOT on the Duke and Duchess!
“Most importantly their Royal Highnesses did not problem the guidance and didn’t ask for it to be carried out — they basically had nothing at all to do with this and didn’t even know it had occurred.”
Not only that, 1 of the guidelines wasn’t even what they’d want! The spokesman corrected:
“As it is they appreciate individuals to stroke their dogs.”
Phew! It would be hard to be fans of anybody who didn’t like their dogs getting petted.
Do YOU feel Harry and Meghan came up with the guidelines and are just covering now? Or was an individual attempting to support and just actually blew it??
