Queen Elizabeth Gives Prince Harry Grudging Blessing For Meghan Markle Engagement

Queen Elizabeth will grudgingly give her blessing if Prince Harry wishes to become engaged to Meghan Markle. Queen Elizabeth may want to put Prince Harry’s happiness before all else after bearing witness to much heartache over love in her 64 years on the throne.

It all started when Queen Elizabeth’s uncle King Edward VIII abdicated in 1936 to marry a twice divorced American. Then Queen Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret wanted to marry Group Captain Peter Townsend, a divorced man 16-years her senior.

Sadly, after much counsel, Her Majesty refused to give approval for Princess Margaret to marry Peter Townsend. This decision devastated Margaret and caused a lifelong estrangement with Queen Elizabeth. Margaret ended up in a loveless marriage with Anthony Armstrong-Jones and carried on scandalous extramarital affairs.

Prince Charles lady love Camilla Parker-Bowles was deemed an unsuitable wife for the future King. Camilla married Andrew Parker-Bowles. Prince Charles was talked into marrying Lady Diana Spencer yet continued to carry on an adulterous affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles during his entire marriage to Princess Diana.

Enter commoner Kate Middleton whom Prince William met while attending St. Andrews University. The couple fell in love and a decade later Queen Elizabeth, though she had reservations, gave permission for the couple to marry. Kate Middleton got the splendid Royal wedding she dreamed of at Westminster Abbey in April 2011.

80 years after Queen Elizabeth’s uncle abdicated Prince Harry has fallen in love with a divorced American actress. Queen Elizabeth must have been horrified when Harry publicly revealed his relationship with Meghan Markle. If the ginger-haired prince decides to marry Meghan Markle will Queen Elizabeth give her blessing?

Times have changed and Prince Charles, the man who will one day be King, divorced Princess Diana and in 2005 married divorcee Camilla Parker-Bowles. Prince William married commoner Kate Middleton. Harry is fifth in line to the throne – does it matter if Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle?

Will Queen Elizabeth give Prince Harry permission to marry Meghan Markle? Does Her Majesty want Harry to avoid the heartache Queen Elizabeth has seen so many Royal Family members experience because they were not allowed to marry the person they truly loved?
