1. STUDY UP ON HER DISCOGRAPHY
From 2005's "Pon de Replay" to 2016's "Love on the Brain," it is essential that the Prince study up on Rihanna's impressive discography. We fully expect Prince Harry to be singing along to each and every one of her songs (mostly because we are dying to see footage of that).

2. BUY YOURSELF A HIGH-CONCEPT, HEADLINE-MAKING ENSEMBLE
Rihanna is a fashion icon. What do you wear to meet a fashion icon? You could wear a sharp, well-tailored suit to your meeting, or you could go haute couture. We're not saying you need to wear a suit made out of meat, but maybe mix it up a little?

3. GET READY TO TALK POLITICS
