Royal wedding ahead? Meghan Markle finally meets the queen over tea

Royal wedding ahead? Meghan Markle finally meets the queen over tea

Harry's ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy had to wait four years before she was introduced to the Queen (they finally met at Peter Phillips's wedding to Autumn Kelly) but the prince seems to be in a hurry to make things official with Meghan.

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan and Harry arrived at the Queen's private entrance to Buckingham Palace on Thursday of last week (in a auto with blacked-out windows, no less).

While a cuppa with your boyfriend's nan doesn't sound like a big deal to us normal folk, in the royal realm it pretty much screams: "We're getting married!"

Kay says that the fifth-in-line to the throne "desperately wanted his grandmother to meet divorcee Meghan" after over a year of dating and flying between Toronto, Canada, where Markle lives, and his apartment in Kensington Palace, where the actress often stays. The meeting, in the Queen's private sitting room, was "deliberately informal", and Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, was not in attendance.

It is served with her own blend of Darjeeling and Assam tea, known as Queen Mary's blend.




After Daily Star Online revealed Prince Harry introduced his girlfriend to Her Maj last month, the pair have apparently met again. It is said to be the Queen's favourite time of day and it's a bonus when her grandchildren join her.

According to the insider, the Queen normally sits for half an hour eating from a selection of sandwiches, fruit or plain scones and cake.

It's time to dust off our hats and get ready for another royal wedding.

As Richard Kay reported, the Queen spent nearly an hour with her grandson and the Los Angeles-born Meghan, who stars in the United States legal drama Suits.

"It is not a question of if but when", the source claimed.
