Meghan Markle and Harry’s neighbours ‘given advice’ on how to treat royal couple07/26/2019
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's neighbours have been advised on how to treat the royal couple, it was claimed today.
It is thought the couple's neighbours have been told never to ask to see baby Archie or post anything through the five-bedroom cottage's letterbox.
But those living around Frogmore Cottage near Windsor, Berks., described their briefing as "over the top".
And it is reported other "rules" include:
- Don't approach the couple or instigate conversation if you see them
- Do say 'Good Morning' or some other pleasantry if they speak to you
- Don't stroke their dogs, even if they come over to you
- Don't offer to walk their dogs
- Don't offer to babysit Archie
Buckingham Palace said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had no involvement in the "well-intentioned briefing".
However, a resident told The Sun: "It would be funny if it wasn’t so over the top."
Another said: "It’s extraordinary. We’ve never heard anything like it.
"Everyone who lives on the estate works for the royals and knows how to behave respectfully."
The royal couple have recently been criticised for spending £2.4 million of taxpayers' cash on the home and for keeping details of Archie's christening private.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said: "The Duke and Duchess had no knowledge of this briefing and no involvement in the concept or the content.
"This was a well-intentioned briefing to help a small local community know how to welcome two new residents and help them with any potential encounter.
"There was no handout or letter.
"The talk was undertaken by a local manager and was widely viewed as being well received."
