Meghan Markle can't stop talking about the weather.

The 36-year-old actress is getting used to life in the UK as she prepares to tie the knot with Prince Harry in May this year, and she has joked that since being in the country, she has been unable to stop all her conversations turning to talk about the often dreary skies.

When a woman in the crowd during Meghan and Harry's visit to Edinburgh this week wished the beauty good weather for her wedding, Meghan quipped: "Being in the UK, all I do is talk about the weather now."

That wasn't the only time the former 'Suits' actress mentioned the weather during her visit to the Scottish city either, as upon arrival she thanked those waiting to meet the pair for braving the "chilly" temperatures.

She said: "Thank you for waiting in the cold for us. It's chilly."

It comes after it was previously reported that Meghan has been receiving etiquette lessons in preparation for joining the royal family, and has been learning skills such as table manners, how to dress, how to socialise with foreign diplomats, and how to climb out of a vehicle with "royal grace".

A source said: "Meghan is on a crash course with a trusted coach used by the royals.

"First on the list is silver service - she must be able to tell a fish knife from her butter knife, know how to handle seafood, drink soup and so on.

"There'll be no stone unturned as in less than 12 weeks all eyes will be on her - there is no room for error."

Meghan is also reportedly taking elocution lessons to soften her American accent, and will be expected to learn British terminology so as to avoid potential gaffes over Americanisms.

The source added: "Elocution lessons will also feature. Meghan's American twang will be softened and toned down. But more essential is her switching to British terminology - she simply cannot be 'taking out the trash' and 'wearing pants'.

"It's the fine tuning needed to ensure she's not lost in translation. Harry has been brought up living and breathing all this. He has a lifetime of nurturing and breeding behind him but Meghan has a matter of weeks to learn what she needs to be accepted at the royal court."
