Queen Elizabeth has made these 'unusual' moves to make Meghan Markle feel accepted: report

Queen Elizabeth has reportedly made a few "unusual" moves in order to make it clear that Meghan Markle is an accepted member of the royal family.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe spoke to The Sun this week and observed that the Duchess of Sussex has made inroads into the notoriously exclusive royal family a lot more quickly than other people who had married into the clan in the past -- in particular, Kate Middleton -- and he attributes that to her "particularly close relationship with the Queen."

Larcombe notes that "if you compare that to when other people have married into the royal family," it's essentially night and day, pointing to Meghan and Her Majesty's solo joint outing together last June in Cheshire -- just one month after Meghan married Prince Harry -- as evidence that the Queen has made "unusual effort" to include Meghan.

"The Queen last year in the first few months of Meghan’s entry into the royal family, made a particular and slightly unusual effort to welcome her in," he explained. "Unusual in the context of the trip on the royal train to do a royal engagement. I’m 99 per cent sure she’s never afforded that offer to Kate."

It's worth noting that, while Meghan waited just one month before her first solo engagement with Elizabeth, sister-in-law Kate Middleton had to wait eight years for hers, which only came this past March.

Larcombe posits that there have been outings that the Queen "obviously requested" Meghan's presence to "signal the fact that she was welcoming her into the royal family."

While the British and international public got used to Kate while she was still dating Prince William, Meghan's ascent happened much more quickly by comparison: She and Harry started dating, got engaged, married and had their first child in less than three years.

The royal commentator says that this difference was integral in the Queen's slightly more welcoming demeanor and actions with Meghan -- especially when the royal family and the media's treatment of Prince Harry's mother, Princess Diana, likely continues to haunt them.

"Possibly because Meghan very much burst onto the scene in a way Kate obviously didn’t. Everyone got to know Kate and the family long before they got engaged," Larcombe told The Sun. "Also possibly because of the lessons of the past where Princess Diana pretty much felt like an outsider in the royal family."
