Queen ’SNUBS’ Meghan Markle after praising Kate in VERY awkward letter
The Queen made an awkward omission when describing Meghan Markle in the letter giving her blessing for Prince Harry’s wedding in May.
She described Kate as “Our trusty and well-beloved Catherine Elizabeth Middleton” when she got engaged to Prince William.
But Harry’s fiancée, from Los Angeles, is just “Rachel Meghan Markle”.
However, Her Majesty is not thought to be making a point.
A source told the Daily Express: “Trusty and well-beloved is language reserved for citizens of the UK or Her Majesty’s other realms.”
As an American, Meghan does not qualify under Royal tradition.
The Queen wrote: “My Lords, I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council.”
The Queen gave her approval to the marriage yesterday in a letter to the Privy Council.
If Harry had not been given his Gran’s consent, his descendants would be banned from ever inheriting the throne.
Although the monarch is unlikely to have withheld her blessing, she would only have said no on the advice of the Prime Minister.
“Trusty and well-beloved is language reserved for citizens of the UK”
The Royal lovebirds are set to wed at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.
Harry first took Meghan to meet the Queen for afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace last October, to introduce her to the woman he wanted to marry.
