Meghan Markle reveals Sarah Ferguson taught her how to curtsy before she met the Queen

The perfect curtsy is a fine art to perfect – but there is one former member of the Royal Family who has become legendary for her sweeping bows. 

Despite not being an official member of The Fold for more than two decades, Fergie always enthusiastically greets her former mother-in-law with an elaborate knee bend.

The Duchess of York, 60, appears to long-look forward to her afternoon at Royal Ascot, often excitedly waving at the monarch to welcome her into the Parade Ring.

This year is her fifth attending the Berkshire racecourse event, and she has become famed among royal fans for her enthusiastic displays at the occasion.

In 2018, she joined ex-husband Prince Andrew and their daughter Princess Beatrice, proving she hadn’t forgotten how to curtsy as she bobbed in deference to the monarch. 

Clutching her daughter’s hand, she swept into a low curtsey as her former mother-in-law rode past in the royal carriage. 

It was a similar scene in 2017, when Fergie appeared alongside Beatrice at the event and was seen enthusiastically waving to the Queen before bending into a low curtsy.

On this occasion, she appeared to call out to Her Majesty as she rode past in her carriage. 

Meanwhile in 2016, the mother-daughter duo were once again joined by Fergie’s ex husband Prince Andrew. 

The Duchess of York beamed at the Queen as she rode past, curtsying low while Beatrice and Andrew proudly looked on.

On the rainy summer day, Fergie used her umbrella to assist in helping her curtsy as low as she could.

And in 2015 it was a proper family affair at the event, as the usual trio were joined by Princess Eugenie and her now-husband Jack Brooksbank.

Fergie appeared to have perfected the curtsy even then, dropping one knee low to the ground while Prince Andrew offered a respectful bow.
