Footage of Meghan Markle performing her “perfect bend” has resurfaced online after the Duchess claimed “I didn’t know what I was doing” when she first greeted the Queen.
The Duchess of Sussex, 41, recalled meeting the Queen for the first time in 2016 in the second episode of the docu-series Harry and Meghan, which landed on the streaming platform earlier this month.
The controversial clip – which unimpressed viewers called “disrespectful” to the late queen – shows the mother-of-two re-creating the extraordinarily deep bow she performed for Her Majesty at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
Ahead of the meeting, Meghan claimed she was surprised to learn she would need to bow to the Queen and previously said Prince Harry helped her practice proper curves to meet a member of the royal family.

However, in the wake of the explosive Netflix series, eagle-eyed royal fans spotted a clip from Season 2 of Suits in which the former actress quickly makes a cameo in her role as paralegal Rachel Zane.
The footage – filmed in 2010 – shows Louis Litt (played by Rick Hoffman) thanking Rachel for some research she did on a case he’s working on.
He then jokingly urges her to bow to him – in response, Rachel makes a quick bow before kicking her out of his office.
Sharing the clip online, Instagram user Emily said it was an example of the Duchess doing “the perfect curve”.

Before an impromptu lunch in Windsor in 2016, Prince Harry said in the Netflix docu-series that he checked his new girlfriend knows how to flirt with his grandmother.
After Meghan shared her own experience of the day, she compared the meal to a trip to an American restaurant franchise Medieval Times and joked that she ‘didn’t know what she was doing’ when she gave a very visceral performance for the Queen.
Describing her first meeting with the late king, Meghan said: “Now I’m starting to realize this is a big problem. I mean, Americans will understand this.”
We have a medieval dinner and tournament. It was so. Like, I was whimpering as if I was like… “Nice to meet you, Your Majesty.”
Meghan Markle claimed she didn’t know how to perform a proper bow-tie before meeting the Queen in the couple’s Netflix documentary series, which hit screens earlier this month.

It was very intense. And then when I left, Eugenie, Jack and Fergie said, “You did great!”. Thanks. I didn’t know what I was doing.
The scene caused an uproar on Twitter earlier this month – with viewers calling it “disrespectful and offensive” to the monarchy.
Meanwhile, others claimed Prince Harry looked “very uncomfortable” as his wife mocked her attempt to bend over.
What’s more, the Duchess also said in her interview with Oprah last year that Prince Harry helped her rehearse her difficult moments before the Queen entered the room.
The Duchess of Sussex, 41, admitted on the Netflix series that she repeatedly practiced the patriotic rendition of “God Save The Queen,” which she taught herself on the Internet.

When the American host asked he was supposed to be attentive to the Queen, Meghan said: ‘Deeply, to show respect. I learned that very quickly right in front of the house.
And Fergie ran out and said, “Are you ready?” Do you know how to bow? I was like, “Oh my God, you guys.”
The Queen was the first high-profile member of the royal family Meghan met after she and Prince Harry announced their relationship in 2016.
“She had no idea what it all consisted of,” Harry told the docu-series as he put his arm around his wife. “So it was a bit of a shock to the system for her.”
Elsewhere in the series, Megan says that ‘the wave is nothing’, claiming that she has not been trained to move her hand in any special way. In the photo, she confirms her engagement in 2018
‘I mean,’ Megan added, grinning. It’s surreal. There was never such a big moment as “Now you’re going to meet my grandmother.”
I didn’t know I would meet her until a moment ago. We were in the car and were going to the Royal Lodge for lunch, which he [Harry] He was like, “Oh, my grandma’s here, she’ll be there after church.”
Elsewhere in the documentary, Meghan admits she had to Google the British national anthem in the early days of her relationship with Prince Harry.
The mother-of-two has admitted she repeatedly practiced the patriotic rendition of “God Save The Queen,” which she taught herself online, before joining the royal family.
She also said that “a wave isn’t my thing,” claiming she wasn’t trained to move her hand in any special way — but jokingly added that she didn’t want to wave her hands “like America.”
