Will The Queen Say No?
We’re told an engagement announcement could come any day, but will their families throw a spanner in the works?
Meghan and Harry, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S… yeah, you get the picture. Prince Harry, 32, and his girlfriend of six months (officially), Meghan Markle, 35, are very much in love and things are getting serious. Divorcee Megan was even reportedly introduced to the Queen on Mother’s Day.
As Look previously reported, they’ve discussed their engagement privately, but as suggestions that an announcement is on the way surface, Meghan’s battling a number of ‘issues’ that could prevent her future happiness – and one of them could be the Queen herself. Oh, we just want a happy ending…
according to an archaic ruling by George iii’s Royal Marriages act of 1772, royal families are prohibited from marrying‘ catholics, commoners or divorcees’. Unfortunately, Meghan is all reportedly all three (she went to a Catholic school). this has now been relaxed, but the first six royals in line to the throne supposedly have to ask the Queen for permission.
Samantha Markle, 52, is Meghan’s estranged sister, who reportedly changed her surname from Grant to Mark le recently( hmm) and also spoke to the media last year, claiming: ‘Meghan is narcissistic and selfish. i think the royal family would be appalled .’ it was rumoured she was writing a tell-all book, but last week she rubbished the claims, although added that her sister had failed to raise awareness for her medical condition, multiple sclerosis: ‘i’m in a wheelchair and she did meet harry at the in v ictus games. i felt like it was an opportunity to be a voice and bring a lot of awareness to it .’ our source says :‘ meg h an is raging but can’ t speak out now she’ s with harry .’
Meghan considers US writer lindsay Roth a close pal, with lindsay telling an american mag that Meghan ‘hadn’t changed’.
‘there is a strict protocol around talking to the media,’ says our well-placed palace source. ‘harry is especially aware of this and it really irritates him .’ it can’ t help that lindsay is a royal obsessive, posting several excited tweets after sending the du chess of cambridge her book and getting a polite ‘thank you’.
The Social Outlook
Since getting involved with harry, Meg’s dialled down her social media posts. as look went to press, she hadn’t posted in over a month and there are some new omissions from her insta feed. look noticed that a post regarding the name of the Queen’s royal horse from September 2015can no longer be accessed...
