The royal wedding is an event of great interest to the world community. Representatives of the royal family honor the traditions that have been observed for many decades. The process begins with the announcement of the engagement. Future spouses hold a press conference and give a joint interview, where they talk about themselves. These are the details we learned about the most famous royal couple of our times:

Markle was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in theater and international studies in 2003, she played small roles in several United States' television series. From 2011 to 2018, she portrayed Rachel Zane on the legal drama series Suits for seven seasons. Markle's film credits include Remember Me and Horrible Bosses. In 2017, she became engaged to Prince Harry and announced her retirement from acting and her intention to pursue humanitarian work.

Queen Elizabeth's royal wedding declaration just revealed a little-known fact about Meghan Markle. Prince Harry and Megnah announced their royal engagement way back in November. But Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth 2, didn't give her blessing until Wednesday. That's right, the Queen finally provided her official blessing for the union in a royal declaration.

She says Harry is her "most dearly beloved grandson" and also reminds us od an important fact: Harry's real name is Henry and Meghan's first name is Rachel. The declaration may seem silly, but it's actually against the law for a British royal to marry without it. Prince Harry and Meghan are set to walk down the aisle on May 19th in a small ceremony at St. George's Chapel.

Months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their debut together on the steps of Kensington, the Queen finally provided her official blessing for the union.

Why does the couple need the Queen's official blessing, you may ask. Well, this is why.

According to the Royal Marriage Act of 1772, members of the royal family had to obtain the written consent of the ruling monarch as the official validation of the marriage. In 2013, this rule was abolished. According to the Law of Succession (2013), only the first six successors of the throne must receive permission from the ruling monarch to marry. If the marriage takes place contrary to the decision, a member of the royal family is deprived of the right to claim the throne.

According to the Act of Succession of 1701, members of the royal family were allowed to marry only with representatives of the Anglican faith (the monarch is the head of the Anglican Church). After the change in the rules of succession in 2013, the future monarchs were allowed to marry Catholics. A lot of progress since the olden days, we are happy to say.

      Getting Married is not the end of this drama, show or scandalous situation. This is the beginning of the future!!! We will heard of then for a Long time. Sad for the Queen and the throne of England. They belong to a VERY different world.
