Meghan Markle to meet Queen Elizabeth
Meghan Markle is reportedly set to meet Queen Elizabeth on Mother's Day as her boyfriend Prince Harry will introduce them.
The 35-year-old actress is currently in a relationship with the monarch's grandson Prince Harry, and the flame haired royal is reportedly planning on taking his girlfriend to meet the Queen for the annual celebration of motherhood.
Prince Harry - who's mother Princess Diana passed away in 1997 after being fatally wounded in a car crash in Paris - has already introduced the 'Suits' actress to his father Prince Charles, and sources say the next step is getting the mark of approval from the 90-year-old monarch.
The source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Meghan is headed to meet the Queen on Mother's Day. She's already been given the green light from Prince Charles, the next step is the Prince's grandmother."
And it isn't just Prince Harry's family that the couple - who have been dating since May last year - need to impress, as the 32-year-old royal was previously tasked with meeting Meghan's father Thomas.
Meghan's brother, Thomas Markle Jr., explained recently: "'My dad knew about [the relationship] from the start.
"He first met Prince Harry about six months ago out in Toronto. He goes once every couple of months - [Meghan and Thomas Markle Senior] are very close and they stay in close contact.
"He's pretty happy about Harry and he's extremely proud of her. They have an amazing relationship, they're very close and they always have been."
Meanwhile, it was recently reported Prince Harry is planning on fashioning his late mother's tiara into an engagement ring to propose to the American actress.
A source claimed: Diana's jewellery collection was left in trust for the boys and Meghan apparently loves emeralds. For Harry, like Wills before him, using his mother's gems means the two loves of his life will forever be linked.
"After Diana died, the boys both chose a keepsake from Kensington Palace when they moved to Charles' rooms in St James's Palace. Prince William picked his mum's Cartier watch, and Harry picked her sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
"But they had an agreement that whoever got engaged first would have Diana's ring - and of course that was William and Kate. Harry wants the same sentiment when he proposes to Meghan, so he is working with the jewellers to design something incredible."
