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?

Look (UK) - - NEWS -

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…

The Di­vorce

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.

The Sis­ter

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...
