Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dating for at least 15 months. Meghan is an American actor, raised in Los Angeles, California. Harry and Meghan got engaged on November 27th, 2017. Markle’s ring includes a diamond from Botswana, for the yellow color, and smaller diamonds that belonged to Harry’s mother, Princess Diana of Wales. Prince Harry included his mother’s diamonds because he wants her to be included on this “crazy journey.” Jewelers in the UK said they will not be making replicas of the ring. The jeweler also said this is one of the “biggest, hardest secrets” they have had to keep.
According to many, getting along with Queen Elizabeth is not an easy task. It took Princess Kate 5 years to finally meet Queen Elizabeth face to face. Prince Harry said to Meghan Markle “meeting the queen will happen at the right time”. Meghan finally met Queen Elizabeth on September 3rd, 2017. Because Prince Harry is 5th in the line of succession (6 after Princess Kate and William’s baby will be born this Spring) he has to get permission from the Queen to marry.
Before 2002, divorcees could not get married in the Westminster Abbey, but because of the rule being changed Harry and Meghan’s wedding will take place at the Westminster Abbey. As tradition dictates, The Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate their ceremony.
