On May 18, New England royal and former actor Meghan Markle will achieve the pipe dream of a whole host of little girls (and more than a few little boys) by marrying into the British Royal Family.

If the early reports are any indication, however, this burgeoning royal will make her new responsibilities look effortless. She’s reportedly mastered royal protocol with preternatural quickness and been put to work as a royal face at high profile gatherings.
