Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement broke headlines in late November 2017. When a prince proposed to an American actress, the world’s attention was captivated. With the wedding quickly approaching, every little detail is keeping us on the edge of our seats.
Shortly after the happy news broke, word spread that Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, had one very serious request for the marriage.
In December 2017, word spread that Queen Elizabeth had request Prince Harry sign a prenuptial agreement.
Prince Harry’s bride-to-be, Meghan, was not happy about the Queen’s request. Sources had shared that the request deeply offended and saddened her. While sour responses spread through headlines, sources shared that Prince Harry wasn’t completely persuaded to sign the agreement but that he was considering his grandmother's request.
Prince Harry is reportedly worth $20 million, while Meghan Markle is worth an estimated $5 million.
On March 18, 2018, it was reported that the long debate as to whether Prince Harry would sign the agreement or not, was finally over. The verdict was that he would not sign any prenuptial agreements.
While there has not been an official comment made, it is reported that Prince Harry has respectfully declined the agreement. He is not planning for a divorce, and the idea of a prenuptial agreement adds a sense of complexity towards the marriage.
Prince William was never advised to sign a prenuptial agreement during his engagement to Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry feels that it's that its not necessary for his relationship either. According to The Daily Mail, Prince Harry “is determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there's no need for him to sign anything.”
Although, there is still time ahead of the wedding, and Prince Harry may change his mind. Whether or not the prenup will happen is completely up to Prince Harry and his bride. Judging by Meghan’s initial response to her finding out of the Queen’s request, we’re sure she’s over the moon excited for Prince Harry’s decision to not sign the prenup. What do you think about this?
