Prince Harry and Meghan Markle receive formal blessing by the Queen to marry


There has been a lot going on for the preparations of the Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. And now without any further delay, Britain's Queen Elizabeth has formally given her permission for her 'dearly beloved' grandson to marry his US fiancée. 

The royal ceremony will be held at the May 19, 2018.  

In a letter to the Privy council, a formal  advisory body to the monarch comprised of senior politicians, judges and bishops, the queen confirmed her approval of the wedding of Harry, the fifth-in-line to the throne, and Meghan Markle, star of the hit US TV drama Suits. 

“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 letter dated on Wednesday said.

According to the 2013 Succession to the Crown Act, all the first six Royals in direct line of succession must get their union approved by the Queen. So did Harry and Meghan. 

However the move was just a formality as the queen had already said in a statement how delighted she was for the couple and she will be attending the wedding ceremony at her Windsor Castle home, to the West of London, on May 19.

Her Majesty also invited Markle to spend Christmas with the royal family at her Sandringham estate in eastern England.
