Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married back in the spring of 2018 but the events leading up to the wedding were the talk of the town. Rumors swirled around the engaged couple and most of them had to do with the matriarch of the illustrious family: the Queen. On paper, their whirlwind romance sounded like something out of a fairytale but anyone who has read a fairytale knows that not everything is all unicorns and fairies. In this real-life royal romance, the protocol is everything and Queen Elizabeth II has always been a firm believer in tradition which her grandson Harry was shirking.
Planning a wedding is supposed to be the bride and groom’s time to show the world what makes their love special and a royal wedding is to show the world this rather than just friends and family. It appeared that prior to the happy day, the Queen had some pretty big reservations about Meghan which she did not keep to herself. But what was it about Meghan that had the Queen so on edge?
The Queen had known about Meghan for quite some time and had been briefed on her acting past, fashion blog, and activism. She knew why Harry had fallen so madly in love with his soon-to-be wife, and now the future mother of another one of her grandchildren.
But there was something that troubled her about Meghan that almost threatened to derail the entire wedding. Things appear to have been smoothed over now but before the happy day, she gave Harry a warning.
