When American actress Meghan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry at the end of last year, she thought that her royal wedding dream is nearer than ever, but unfortunately for her, Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth may not attend the wedding at all – she disapproves of it.
As Freedom Daily reported, for hundreds of years, the Church of England forbade royalty from marrying people that have been divorced. There were some changes regarding that rule back in 2002, but there is one caveat to it that the queen is well aware of that could prevent her from attending the wedding. For them to be married within the church, the actress must be interviewed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, and he is going to be the one to make the ultimate decision – whether or not the can marriage go forward.
When Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles, they had a civil ceremony and did not obtain the permission of the church. Now, Meghan and Harry are set to get married in a civil ceremony as well, much to the queen’s dismay. Because Prince Charles did this, the Queen declined to attend the wedding – she thought that it would be incompatible with her role as Supreme Governor of the Church to attend a civil marriage ceremony, especially one involving the heir to the throne.
“The Queen takes her position as Supreme Governor of the Church of England very seriously and has such great personal faith”, a senior royal official stated.
In addition, there is the fact that the actress does not behave in a royal manner – the royals are supposed to stay out of politics, and she has openly criticized our president. During last year’s election, she was asked how Trump’s momentum could be slowed down – take a look at her response:
“It’s the moment that I go. Suits is being filmed in Toronto and I might stay in Canada. If that’s reality we are talking about, that is a game changer in terms of how we move in the world here.
Of course Donald Trump is divisive, just think about female voters alone. I think it was in 2012 when the Republicans lost the female vote by 12 points. That’s not a small number, and with as misogynistic as Donald Trump is and so vocal about it, that’s a huge chunk of it. You’re not voting for a woman if it’s Hillary Clinton because she’s a woman, but because Donald Trump has made it so easy to see that you don’t want to live in the kind of world that he’s painting.”
