Though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship has been getting more serious, it still remains unclear if Markle has met Queen Elizabeth II yet.
On September 13, Us Weekly reported from that an unnamed, unconfirmed friend of Meghan Markle said the Suits actress has allegedly met the Queen. According to the article, Markle and Harry returned from their three-week vacation in Botswana and Zambia only to have Harry fly Markle out to Balmoral Castle, the Queen’s summer residence, for a formal introduction.
Ingrid Seward, the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, told People that she’s unsure if Markle has met the Queen but the only way for her to have a meeting would be if Harry himself arranged it.
Seward confirmed to People that Harry had taken Markle to Balmoral Castle but it remains unclear if the meeting took place. She also doubts that the couple stayed at Balmoral, as the location would have been very formal. Two possibilities of where they could have stayed would be Birkhall or Tam Na Ghar. Birkhall was inherited by Prince Charles and is now owned by him and Camilla whereas Tam Na Ghar is a home on the estate that Harry and Prince William have access to.
Regardless of whether or not the meeting took place, Markle and Harry will need to meet the Queen should their relationship want to move forward.
If Harry wants to propose to Markle, it is a law that he asks for the Queen’s permission. This law was first established as the Royal Marriages Act from 1772 and has since been altered to include more lenient rules.
People reports that originally, the monarch was allowed to refuse the marriage between someone in his or her family. Now, however, the rule on stretches to the first six people in line for the throne, a list which Harry is a part of.
