In fact, there has been no official confirmation whether the Queen will be present for Prince Harry’s wedding either. Nevertheless, she reportedly got along with Markle very well when they were first introduced. “When I met her I had such a deep understanding and, of course, incredible respect for being able to have that time with her,” Markle said in her post-engagement interview with the BBC in November 2017. For emphasis, the actress added, “She’s an incredible woman.”
Even the Queen’s famous corgis took a liking to Markle straight away, which every dog lover knows is a very good sign. Actually, the pet doggies were much keener on her than they ever were of her new fiancé. “I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at,” a cheerful Harry admitted to the BBC. He then gestured to Markle, saying, “This one walks in – absolutely nothing.”
Furthermore, the Queen has actually already allowed Markle to break a different royal tradition. In December 2017, just a month after the engagement announcement, the actress was permitted to holiday with the royals at their Sandringham Estate in south-east England. The family’s three-day Christmas celebrations are normally a tightly regulated affair.
