Why Prince Harry Would Have to Get the Queen’s Permission to Propose to Meghan Markle

Last November, Kensington Palace issued an unusually strongly worded statement, roundly criticizing the treatment that Meghan Markle and her family had received from the media.

“They are very close and he really values her opinion on girlfriends.”

Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, died when he was very young so Kate really fulfills that older sister/maternal role
