Much has been said about how Queen Elizabeth feels about her beloved Grandson, Prince Harry, and his choice of a bride. First and foremost is the fact that Meghan Markle was married before.
According to the rules of The Church of England, members are not supposed to marry anyone who is divorced. But they got through that one, and now the happy couple is set to have a church wedding on May 19th.
Then, the fact that Meghan is a "commoner" from the States and an actress, to boot, certainly raised some Royal eyebrows.
But the Queen's love for and devotion to Harry must have carried a lot of weight in her overlooking these "faults."
Let's not forget the wording on the Royal Consent Decree in which Her Majesty gave formal approval for the two to wed. Much was made about the difference in the wording between this decree and the one she issued for William and Kate, causing speculation that the Queen's fondness for the Duchess of Cambridge outshines her feelings for Meghan.
Now, in the latest revelation, it appears the Queen has strong feelings about the bride-to-be and they aren't what anyone expected.
In an appearance on Entertainment Tonight, author Katie Nicholl, sheds some light on the relationship between the two.
In spite of the American actress' unconventional (by Royal standards, anyway) ways and the press' attempts to make it seem otherwise, "the two actually get along well even though Meg[han] often breaks royal protocol."
Nicholl, who wrote the new bestseller, “Harry: Life, Loss, and Love” continues, "Everything I heard from the sources I spoke to was that she really felt from the outset that Meghan was a positive person in Prince Harry's life. That she made him very happy and that she was really very supportive."
Right from the horse's mouth! It must make the Princess-to-be feel wonderful that her future grandmother-in-law is so supportive of her entering the Royal Family.
And of all the titles she is sure to gain once she is married, "Positive Person" is the one I think Ms. Markle will be most proud of - and more instrumental than the others in ensuring a successful marriage.
