Queen Gives Approval For Upcoming Royal Wedding

Queen Elizabeth has given her official approval to the upcoming marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The approval was given through a hand written document called an Instrument of Consent. The couple will receive the document after the nuptials on 19 May.

The consent read: "NOW KNOW YE that We have consented and do by these Presents signify Our Consent to the contracting of Matrimony between Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, K.C.V.O., and Rachel Meghan Markle (sic)."

The Palace said: "The Instrument of Consent is drafted by the Crown Office and is, in the case of Prince Harry's marriage, hand-written and illuminated on vellum by one of a panel of scrivener artists retained by the Crown Office. Vellum is used only for important State documents."

"The design to the left of the text incorporates a red dragon, the heraldic symbol of Wales, together with the UK's floral emblems - the rose, thistle and shamrock. It also features Prince Harry's Label, including three tiny red escallops from the Spencer family Arms.

"The design to the right of the ​text also includes the rose, as this is also the national flower of the United States. To either side of the rose are two golden poppies - this being the state flower of California, where Ms Markle was born. Between the flowers is the Welsh leek, together with Prince Harry's Label. Beneath the Label are olive branches, adopted from the Great Seal of the United States."

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, on 19 May.
