Prince Harry 'must get the Queen's approval to marry Meghan Markle'
British royal Prince Harry must get the Queen's approval if he plans to marry 'Suits' actress Meghan Markle.
The 32-year-old royal has been dating the 'Suits' actress since mid-2016 and as rumours swirl that the flame-haired Prince intends to marry the brunette beauty, it has emerged Harry will first need to seek the permission of his grandmother.
Under the UK's Royal Marriages Act 1772, the monarch actually had the power to veto the marriage of a family member.
And while the law has been relaxed over time, it still applies to the first six in line to the throne, which includes Prince Harry.
Meanwhile, Meghan's 'Suits' co-star Patrick J. Adams recently gave the couple's burgeoning romance his seal of approval.
Patrick also said Meghan is perfectly suited to coping with the stresses that come with dating a royal.
He said: "I'm super excited for her. As you can imagine, it is a massive deal, obviously, if you hadn't noticed. I didn't wanna get involved. I just wanted to say, 'I love you, I support you, I hope you're happy. You seem really happy'. And if she ever needed anybody to talk to in the madness - because it is madness, it's madness what the world puts somebody through when they're going through this process.
"But if there's anyone in the world who is designed to be able to deal with it and deal with it professionally, it's Meghan Markle.
"I'm just super excited for her and I hope that all of the whatever, whatever, I don't even know what it is, but all of the madness passes at some point and they can just get down to the business of enjoying each other's company and hopefully not have to worry about this. But I guess being in this situation, it probably goes on forever."
