In a move to signify, a step closer to the wedding of 2018, Prince Harry and Ms. Rachel Meghan Markle have received the blessing from the Queen!!! via The Daily Mail:

The Queen has given her formal consent to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – using their real names, Henry and Rachel.

In a letter to the Privy Council, the monarch expressed her approval of the upcoming wedding between her ‘most dearly beloved grandson’ and his fiancee, 36.

A similar letter was signed by Her Majesty just one week before the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

At a Privy Council meeting on Wednesday, the monarch made the declaration and will have signed a Great Seal of the Realm.

It read: ‘I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council.’

The first six people in the line of succession must have the Queen’s consent before they can marry on May 19, as set out by the Succession to the Crown Act 2013.

Should Prince Harry have married Meghan without the monarch’s approval, he and his descendants would be banned from ever ascending to the throne.

The act’s introduction saw sex removed as a determining factor in the line of succession, meaning Prince Harry is fifth-in-line behind Princess Charlotte.

A monarch’s permission has been sought for those in the line of succession since the 18th century.

Under the Royal Marriages Act 1772, all descendants of George II had to obtain the sovereign’s agreement before they wed, otherwise the marriage was invalid.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: ‘Her Majesty finally gave consent to the marriage of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle under the Succession to the Crown Act by making a declaration at the meeting of the Privy Council on March 14, 2018.’

As if we were not already excited, the Queen used their first names and declared Harry as her, “most dearly beloved grandson.” Oh, the love. I am going to be in bed all day watching this splendid occasion. Bravo Prince Henry and Rachel.

XOXO,

  1. I find it really interesting how fascinated we are by royals when they are simply regular people with TONS of privilege.

    I think the wedding was announced and “approved” quite a while ago.
