Meghan has already broken tradition by attending Christmas at Sandringham with the Queen before she and Harry are married.

She arrived at the special service earlier with Harry, Kate and William, and was greeted by hundreds of members of the public who had gathered to catch a glimpse of her.

Meghanneeds to have a good eye for faces because she faces an etiquette minefieldwhen she marries Prince Harry.

The engaged star will need to curtsy to some members of the royal family - but not others.

And if the American actress does the dip-and-bob at the wrong moment she risks embarrassing herself and her future husband.

It goes without saying that the Queen requires a curtsy and she will also need to curtsy to Princess Anne as she is the Queen's daughter.

A curtsy is in order for the young princesses Eugenie and Beatrice - but only if Meghan is flying solo.

If Prince Harry is in the room then Eugenie and Beatrice need to curtsy to Meghan and Harry.

It is unclear who she was curtsying to earlier today.

The current rules on curtsy etiquette were drawn up by the Queen's private secretary in 2005 to avoid any confusion when Camilla married Prince Charles.

They were tweaked again in 2011 when Prince William married Kate Middleton.

Meghan, sporting a dark brown beret, walked to theChristmas dayservice arm in arm with Harry, alongside William and pregnant Kate.
