In the second half of Harry & Meghan, Meghan Markle explained how Queen Elizabeth protected and covered her at her first royal engagement after marrying Prince Harry.
Meghan said: "I treated her as my husband's grandma, knowing that, of course, there needs to be a very different sense of etiquette in public..."
"When we went into the car between those engagements, she had a shawl, and she put it over my knees, and we were there in this car with this blanket, and I thought,
'I recognize and appreciate and see that you're the Queen, but at this moment I'm so thankful that there is a grandmother figure because it feels like family,'" Meghan said.
"And since I was so close with my grandmother..." the Duchess of Sussex said, adding that she cared for her grandmother in her final years.
Prince Harry and Meghan only met Queen Elizabeth at her Platinum Jubilee months before her death in September 2022.
