The Personal Touches on the Queen's Consent for the Royal Wedding

Pour yourself a cuppa and join the conversation as we discuss everything from Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle, to intriguing palace secrets.

The high-profile royal wedding between Britain's Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle will take place in one week, on Saturday, May 19, at noon at the St. George's Chapel of Windsor Castle. Each include a rose because it's the national flower of the United States and both also feature Harry's Label. It means the monarch must agree to the marriages of the first six people in the line of succession. Harry falls under this category since he is sixth in line for the throne, behind his father Prince Charles, brother Prince William, nephew Prince George, niece, Princess Charlotte, and newborn nephew Prince Louis.

Britain's Prince Harry stands with his fiancée United States actress Meghan Markle as she shows off her engagement ring while they pose for a photograph in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in west London on 27 November 2017 following the announcement of their engagement.

The Queen previously gave her consent for her grandson to marry Markle after a meeting at Buckingham Palace in March.

The Queen's signature, Elizabeth R, is visible at the top of the document.

"The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was confirmation to me that all the stars were aligned, everything was just ideal", Harry said in an interview to mark the engagement last November.

There are also olive branches, like those in the Great Seal of the US.

It required descendants of King George II to get the sovereign's consent before they Wednesday, otherwise their marriages would be invalid.

And she gave her permission for them to Wednesday at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19.

Meghan Markle's wedding dress designer has not yet been revealed, but it is highly unlikely for David Emanuel to create her gown.

And there's no better evidence of this than Meghan Markle, the soon-to-be HRH The Duchess of Sussex, whose family has been a bit of a source of embarrassment in the days leading up to the royal wedding.
