Queen Elizabeth Gives Prince Harry Official Permission to Marry Meghan Markle

Royal Family

Who will get the nod to design Meghan's dress for UK royal wedding?

The tough Special Air Service (seen here in the Second World War) has trained Meghan Markle how to deal with terrorism. "Shes also been exploring various charitable avenues she'd like to pursue after she gets married".

Either way, by now you've had time to catch.

Listen, we knew Meghan Markle was going to have her work cut out for her when she agreed to marry Prince Harry and become a royal, but we didn't know that it entailed getting kidnapped.

Same goes for Harry, who goes by his given name, Henry, during traditional royal ceremonies.

As she did for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Queen will have signed an Instrument of Consent, issued under the Great Seal of the Realm.

But given what Harry has said on the matter in the past, it seems unlikely he would have minded.

Requiring the monarch's official consent to Wednesday is an old royal protocol under The Royal Marriages Act 1772.

So, it looks like its full steam ahead for the wedding day on May, 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor. Markle wore the shoes on March 8 in black suede alongside Prince Harry when they celebrated International Women's Day.

Yet the new Act still required fifth-in-line Harry to obtain the Queen's permission.

Harry has quite a number of people in front of him in the line of succession before he could be named king, including his father Prince Charles, his older brother Prince William and William and Kate Middleton two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte (along with a third child on the way).

The pair will marry in May.
