Queen Elizabeth II Offers Official Consent For The Upcoming Royal Wedding

A couple of days back, the Queen officially gave her consent to the wedding.

The Queen's address to Prince Henry and Rachel Meghan Markle confused a lot of people, posing the question of why she called them by different names to those most commonly used.

Meghan also chose a pair of BB pumps, this time in black suede, when she celebrated International Women's Day earlier this month.

Ahead of her and Prince Harry's wedding on May 19, a source tells ET that herfianc's family has been extremely supportive, and is " embracing" the former Suits star.

In comparison, the Queen referred to Harry as her "most dearly beloved grandson".

But if you're not up with the royals, you wouldn't have had the foggiest Her Majesty was talking about Hazza and Megs if you'd simply read the announcement. Since Harry is in line to the throne, he must have the consent of the queen before marrying.

According to Fortune, Meghan's finances were easier to get specifics on than Harry's.

The Queen consented to their marriage by writing, "Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, K.G. and Our Trusty and Well-beloved Catherine Elizabeth Middleton".

'Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle are hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement, ' Kensington Palace has said.

"This lovely woman just tripped and fell into my life, I fell into her life". It was one of a number of private visits Meghan is making to charities in the run up to the couple's wedding on 19 May. For example, last year, all official expenses incurred by Prince Harry, his brother Prince William, and his sister-in-law Kate Middleton (think official state visits, royal staffing and wardrobe costs, etc.) totaled around $4.9 million, which was paid out by the Duchy of Cornwall. "At the heart of it is two people who have fallen in love with each other, who are committing their lives to each other with the most handsome words and profound thoughts ..."

THE Archbishop of Canterbury has admitted one thought dominates his preparations for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding this year: "I must not drop the ring". "In a nutshell, the lack of adjectives before Meghan's name was because she is not a citizen of a Commonwealth Realm where the Queen is head of state", Arbiter explained to INSIDER in an email.
