The press secretary provided an update on Friday (May 4). PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Meghan Markle “We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public,” the update reads. “The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun.” Read the full outline inside… We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public. The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun. We said from the outset that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle were keen to make sure that members of the public would have the opportunity to feel part of the celebrations on their wedding day. This is their way of expressing their gratitude for the messages of support they have received from around the UK, the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle’s home country of the United States, and right around the world. In today’s briefing I want to share more details of what people can expect to see in the day’s leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself, and explain what the public can expect in Windsor. The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day. Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day. As we said back in November, this wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes Royal Weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. We have been announcing details over the last couple of months and in the final week ahead of the wedding you can expect to hear more about the arrangements, including: The Instrument of Consent; Details of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys; The work of florist Philippa Craddock and the Crown Estate gardeners who have been growing and preparing the flowers that will fill the church; An update from Claire Ptak, the baker who will make the wedding cake, and the chefs who have been working in the Palace kitchens to make the final preparations and; We will publish the full Order of Service on the website on Saturday morning so members of the public can follow the service at home. I will now take you through the high level outline of what you can expect to see from the evening of Friday 18th May. The key moment for the day before will be the arrival of the bride at her accommodation. We expect this to happen early evening. On the day itself we expect Windsor to be very busy. The council has worked with partners including Thames Valley Police to plan what will be a fantastic day of celebrations. As the Royal Borough of Windsor has said, work is well underway to ensure the occasion is a memorable and joyous one for all involved and they are working closely with a wide range of partners. Rail operators will be putting on extra trains and there will be park and walk and park and float services to help people get into town. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and book all travel arrangements early so they can make the most of their trip. I would very much appreciate the media’s assistance in spreading the message that visitors to Windsor will have a chance to be part of a very special day, but those who will be heading to the town really do need to plan their journeys carefully. The Royal Borough has confirmed that preparations include: A 6,000 space pre-booked car parking area at the Review Ground, just off the Long Walk; Food stalls and facilities, including big screens showing live footage of the wedding and Procession, on the Long Walk and in Alexandra Gardens; Viewing areas along the whole Procession Route (Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and the Long Walk); A team of 140 Royal Borough Ambassadors have volunteered to help steward the event and assist visitors throughout the day; The town centre will be decorated with bunting and ceremonial banners along parts of the Procession Route and; Live entertainment from local groups throughout the town centre. In order to make sure everyone can get through expected traffic, the members of the public who have been invited to be inside the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding will be arriving from around 0900hrs. As a reminder, 1,200 people have been nominated by Lord Lieutenants from across the country for their work supporting their communities. Many of these people are sharing their stories with their local media and supporters – the couple are very pleased that their wedding has provided a platform to celebrate the inspiring work of community and youth leaders from around the UK. The first thing these people gathered will see on the morning of the wedding will be the arrival of guests between 0930hrs and 1100hrs. Guests will be arriving at the Round Tower by coach and will be seen walking to the South Door of St George’s Chapel. Members of The Royal Family will begin to arrive from 1120hrs, and enter St George’s Chapel via the Galilee Porch. Some will be on foot, and others will arrive by car. Prince Harry and his brother The Duke of Cambridge will arrive at St George’s Chapel most likely by foot and will enter via the West Steps. This will allow Their Royal Highnesses to acknowledge all of the people gathered in the Castle precincts, including the 200 charity representatives gathered in the Horseshoe Cloister at the bottom of the steps. Also around the time Royal Family arrivals begin, a pooled media facility will cover Ms. Markle and Ms. Ragland’s departure from the bride’s overnight location. We expect the journey into the Castle to take them along part of the Long Walk, allowing members of the public gathered there to see the car as it passes. There will also be a brief stop at the Castle where Ms. Ragland will head onto the Chapel and Ms. Markle will be joined by some of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys before she continues her journey to the church, where she will enter via the West Steps. The Service will take around an hour, and we look forward to announcing more details of this in the weeks ahead. After the Service has concluded, the newly married couple will process out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry’s charities gathered in the Cloister. The couple are delighted that these people who will be such an important part of their official work in the years to come will be the first people they see after their wedding. As the couple step into their Carriage, close family members will gather on the West Steps to wave them off on their Procession. As a reminder, we expect the Carriage Procession to take just under 25 minutes. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to this part of the day. It will be their chance to express their gratitude for the goodwill and warm wishes they have received from all quarters in the months since their engagement. Members of the congregation will file out of the church onto the grass to see the start of the Procession before walking to the reception at St George’s Hall. All guests will be attending the reception. The public elements of the event will be over at this stage. The final thing you can expect to see is the Bride and Groom departing Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House. In the days that follow, we will facilitate interviews with some of those who have been involved in the wedding, as happened in 2011, for example with the hairdresser and dressmaker. The formal photographs, which will be taken by Alexi Lubomirski, will be released during the week......»»

Prince Harry Is Essentially Giving Meghan Markle Princess Lessons À La The Princess Diaries!

Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries! Between meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and official public outings as a couple, it seems Prince Harry and the Suits actress are destined for an engagement. However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially [...] Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries! Between meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and official public outings as a couple, it seems Prince Harry and the Suits actress are destined for an engagement. However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially transitions into becoming a royal. Related: Meghan's Half Sis IS Writing A Memoir In order to make the transition from commoner to princess a smooth one for Miz Markle, it's said the royals are schooling her in the ways of British aristocracy. Apparently, the royal family playful refers to themselves as the "Firm," since there is no special school for learning how to be a member of the privileged brood. Where's Julie Andrews -- excuse us, Queen Clarisse Renaldi -- when you need her?? Thankfully, the ginger prince has been dedicated to educating his lady about his lifestyle. Per British writer Katie Nicholl, the 33-year-old has been a mentor of sorts for Meghan. She told The Post: "He knows how daunting this will be for Meghan and he's keen for her to be relaxed in the company of senior royals." Smart, smart. Reportedly, before the teatime visit at Buckingham Palace, Harry likely informed Markle of all the protocols that she should follow. Nicholl continued: "Harry will have made sure Meghan knew how to address the queen and how to behave in her presence. He calls her ‘Granny,' but after Meghan had curtsied and called her ‘Your Majesty,' she would have reverted to ‘ma'am.' It seems strange to mere mortals, but it is how [Princess] Kate addresses her." How formal!! Although the Suits star is encouraged to be herself, she is expected to act with the manners and grace of a royal. Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, added: "She will always have to remember, in public at least, that she is royalty and certain behaviors are expected... It's going to be difficult for her because she is an independent career woman who [won't] really like being told what to do." You listenin', Meghan?? The American divorcée will also be required to learn the British rules for functioning in society. Seward relayed: "American manners are different than British manners. [She] can't walk down the street eating or chewing gum... We hold our cutlery differently. It's a whole different culture." This is quite the undertaking. Regardless, it's not like the 36-year-old hasn't had experience dealing with the public. As an actress and an activist, Meghan has had extensive media training and can speak eloquently in public. Charles Rae, former royal correspondent for Britain's Sun, informed The Post that Markle has been "studying hard" to learn everything. QUIZ: Are You A Royal Family Expert?? He explained: "She has practically been living at Kensington Palace whenever she is in London and will have seen the routine that goes on with the butlers and servants." The industry vet will also learn from the royal protection squad on how to interact with unruly fans. Rae noted: "She will learn how to cope if someone [in a crowd] comes on too strong. Ever since John Lennon was shot, the royals have been told never to rebuff anyone. Members of the family, including the queen, have had assassination attempts against them in the past, and no chances will be taken with Meghan." Intense stuff. Charles also mentioned that the TV starlet's acting career will be "a thing of the past." If you're still not convinced that Harry and Meghan are engagement bound, reports suggest that the brunette stunner's presence at either the upcoming memorial service for Remembrance Sunday or the Sandringham Christmas celebrations means the couple is serious AF. SoOoO, be sure to keep your ears to the ground, Perezcious readers!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Prince Harry Brought Meghan Markle To Buckingham Palace For Some Quality Time With Queen Elizabeth!

A royal engagement is nigh, right?? On Wednesday, it was reported that Prince Harry brought Meghan Markle to Buckingham Palace last week for a two-on-one visit with Queen Elizabeth. Ooh, go on!!

On Wednesday, it was reported that Prince Harry brought Meghan Markle to Buckingham Palace last week for a two-on-one visit with Queen Elizabeth. Ooh, go on!! QUIZ: Are You A Royal Family Expert?? According to Daily Mail, the love birds stopped by the British sovereign's London palace for a private tea with the Queen. It's said the twosome, who have been dating for at least 15 months, arrived at the royal residence in a Ford Galaxy station wagon with blacked out windows. Clearly, Meghan and Harry are trying to keep a low profile. Per the report's columnist Richard Kay, upon their arrival, Meghan and Harry were "whisked up to the Queen's private sitting room" for an hour visit. That's some serious face time, girl!! Although, there are reports that claim Elizabeth and Meghan met during a visit earlier this year to Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Later in the evening, Harry performed some royal duties as he accepted a posthumous award on behalf of his late mother, Princess Diana. The prize at the Attitude magazine awards was to commemorate the late princess' HIV/AIDS activism. We're sure Harry's mother would be so proud of everything he's accomplished -- especially his mature relationship with Meghan. Now, obviously, there's major significance to the Suits actress' sit down with the Queen. Currently, Harry is fifth in line to the throne, which means he needs the Queen's permission to tie the knot. The ginger prince will be pushed to sixth in line when Kate Middleton gives birth to her third child with Prince William! Regardless, locking in his grandmother's approval isn't expected to be a problem, as the Queen simply "adores" Harry. One insider previously noted: "If Harry asks for something, she would say yes as she adores him." All signs are pointing to an engagement as, in addition to this visit, Harry and Meghan made their public debut as a couple last month at the Invictus Games in Toronto. At the event, Harry spent some SERIOUS quality time with Markle's momma, Doria. Not to mention, spokespeople for Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace both declined to comment on the report. Now, isn't that VERY suspicious??? Honestly, we're just SO ready for these two to be engaged already!!! [Image via Euan Cherry/WENN.].....»»

We mean, they already have a venue and a date picked out (St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018). We're SO thrilled for Harry and Meghan! Congrats again, you two!!

Meghan Markle & Her Father Have Had Their "Ups & Downs" — But They"re In A "Good Place Now"!

Meghan Markle has a complicated relationship with her father, but that doesn't mean she isn't excited for him to be at her royal wedding.

As you likely saw, last week, Kensington Palace confirmed that Thomas Markle Sr. WILL be present at Prince Harry and Meghan's nuptials on May 19. In fact, the cinematographer will even walk the Suits actress down the aisle at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel. Related: Madame Tussauds NAILS New Waxwork Of Meghan! This update completely contradicts the scathing letter written by half brother Thomas Markle Jr., who claimed the 36-year-old was estranged from their shared poppa and didn't invite the Markle patriarch to her wedding. While things have been complicated between Thomas Sr. and Meghan in the past, it appears that the twosome aren't currently estranged. An insider confirmed this to be true, as they spilled to People: "Meghan loves her dad. Like any father-daughter relationship, there have been ups and downs over the years. But they are in a good place now." Mr. Markle, who worked as a lightening designer on shows like Married…With Children and General Hospital, got divorced from Meghan's mom Doria Ragland in the '80s. He lives away from the limelight, thanks to a quiet life in Mexico. Nonetheless, Thomas Sr. wasn't absent from Meghan's life during her fundamental years, as a former Immaculate Heart classmate revealed: "...her dad was such a sweetheart. He did the sets for our plays, which was a huge thing for us, and he would volunteer his time even after Meghan graduated. She was close with her parents. They were affectionate." As for the her brother's claims that her desire for fame has left the elder Thomas destitute?? The first source defended: "She's been supportive of him in every way, including financially. She has paid many of her father's bills over the years." It sounds like Meghan's half sibling was stirring up trouble for attention. We're glad everything is settled, as Harry is slated to meet Thomas Sr. for the first time in the days to come. Mr. Markle will also be introduced to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles of Wales, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. Harry has already become acquainted with Doria, as she even joined the love birds at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September. Hopefully, no other estranged relatives attempt to spoil Meghan and Harry's big day. Nine days, everyone!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Apparently her majesty has grown quite fond of Prince Harry's new wife, as she "has met Meghan on more than a few occasions, privately and publicly." Related: Meghan Markle's Dad Says The Royal Family Is Ignoring Him According to Us Weekly, a source close to the royal family says: "It's been a fantastic opportunity for her to get to know more about Meghan and where her passions lie." And it turns out the 36-year-old (former) actress is getting along nicely with her grandmother-in-law: "Meghan quickly demonstrated that she is intelligent, polite and keen to learn. Her enthusiasm towards living a life of service and humanitarianism excites the queen and it's just the type of vim and vigor she likes to see in someone." The feeling is mutual. The insider also shares that Meg is loving getting some one-on-one time with the matriarch: "She has a brilliant sense of humor. That's one of the first things that brought her and Meghan closer. It's that warm side of her that has made Meghan feel so at ease." Cheerio! [Image via WENN.].....»»

The Duchess of Sussex's biological father asserts in a damning new interview with The Daily Mail that he won't stop pursuing Meghan even if the royal fam has completely cut him off from his daughter. Related: Meghan Totally Approves Of Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra's Engagement! Speaking to the publication, Markle said about being cut off (below): "I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off." Hmmm.. And Thomas reveals he has thought about mailing Meghan things, too, though it's unlikely they'd get to her: "I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn't explode." Uhhh... OK! Related: Meghan's Sister Defends "Cashing In" On The Duchess' Fame That's not the weirdest part, though -- Thomas clearly has a bone to pick about getting perhaps locked out of seeing his grand child at some point next year or soon thereafter (below): "[It would be] easier for Meghan if I died. Everyone would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I'd hate to die without speaking to Meghan again. What's sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I'll be a grandfather. And if we're not speaking, I won't see my grandchild. How tragic is that—to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?" Wow! And later, he turned the whole thing into a pity party, criticizing Meghan for not properly thanking him for the way he raised her (below): "They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won't be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet. What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. How cold is that?" Yikes... Not good. Related: The ULTIMATE Royal Quiz! And also not done! How about invoking Princess Diana's name in this whole mess for Thomas, too (below): "[The Royal Family] have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry's mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That's not what Diana stood for. Princess Diana is credited with changing the Royal Family, but she wasn't perfect. She was still very much one of them. I think Meghan's the one who'll bring them into the 21st Century, if they'll let her." Wow... Controversial, to say the least!!!! What do U think, Perezcious readers?!

EST: Kensington Palace have once again released an official statement on the matter in an effort to protect Thomas Markle: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this [...] UPDATE: 5:21 P.M. EST: Kensington Palace have once again released an official statement on the matter in an effort to protect Thomas Markle: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation." Is this the only way Meghan can defend her dad's honor? With Royal decree?? You'd think someone with a future of nothing but press photos would understand her father wanting some good publicity. But alas, Meghan Markle is "upset and disturbed" by Thomas Markle getting caught apparently staging photos with a paparazzi less than a week before she's set to wed Prince Harry. Related: Lifetime's Harry & Meghan Movie Was Absurd! A source told Us Weekly that while Meghan is bothered by the antics of her father, she has more pressing matters at the moment, explaining: "Meghan is upset and disturbed by the entire ordeal and just wants to move past it. She doesn't want to let anything ruin her day and is trying to keep focus on the weekend." She has enough to worry about! We mean, who's going to sit at the Spice Girls' table during the reception!? We're stressed just thinking about it. The insider added that Meghan's relationship with her father "has always been strained" because of "his ill thought-out decisions and his lack of responsibility." As we reported, Thomas was spotted arriving at a cafe in Mexico with a photographer named Jeff Rayner. The two were seen working together to find a good angle to take a picture of the 73-year-old sitting at a computer reading a news story about Meghan and his future son-in-law. Video: Meghan's Family Is THE WORST! After the scandal broke, Meghan's half sister Samantha Markle took responsibility for setting it up -- a development the source says "wasn't a surprise to Meghan at all." The insider continued: "Meghan is disappointed that her father hasn't spoken up and stopped his children from trashing her in the press. Instead, she sees his collaboration with Samantha, who Meghan feels he is much closer to, and it hurts her." Thomas later opened up to TMZ about his decision, insisting he just wanted a photo of himself in the press where he didn't look like an uncultured slob. He even claimed he was so embarrassed, he wouldn't be attending the wedding! If Thomas' intentions were truly just to look presentable, we do hope Meghan thinks about issuing a pardon.

Bethenny Frankel Boasts That She Once Dated Meghan Markle"s Ex-Husband!

Talk about six degrees of separation! It seems that future royal Meghan Markle has something in common with Real Housewives of New York queen Bethenny Frankel.

On Monday, during her [...] Talk about six degrees of separation! It seems that future royal Meghan Markle has something in common with Real Housewives of New York queen Bethenny Frankel. Apparently, the Skinnygirl founder once dated the Suits alum's first husband, Trevor Engelson. What a small world! Related: Meghan Will Pay Tribute To Princess Diana During Her Wedding! On Monday, during her chat with Australia's Kyle and Jackie O Show, Miz Frankel revealed her connection to Prince Harry's fiancée. The Bravolebrity spilled: "I met this guy as a romantic interest. His name is Trevor. I met him in Chicago and we were supposed to go out, and I ended up seeing him one time and he'd been texting me. He's a producer in L.A. He told me that he was married before. He's divorced [now]. He was married to this girl named Meghan Markle from the TV show Suits." At the time of this encounter, Bethenny knew very little about Meghan and had NO idea what Markle's future would entail. However, once Meghan and Harry's engagement was confirmed, Frankel had no qualms with shooting Trevor a text. Per the reality TV vet, she texted Markle's ex: "Holy shit! Your ex is going to be a princess. Is that crazy?" Sadly, the 47-year-old didn't reveal how Engelson responded to this quip. Although, if the gossip about the way Meghan ended her first marriage is true, we're sure Trevor wasn't THRILLED to learn that Meghan totally upgraded her romantic life. As for Bethenny and Trevor's relationship?? It sounds like they were destined to be business partners, rather than lovers. She continued: "He pitched me a TV show idea to produce together about a bunch of businesswomen, which I think we are going to do." Very cool. On why she didn't pursue a relationship with Markle's former flame, the New York native revealed that Trevor looks "a little bit like [her] ex." The businesswoman explained: "He looks a little bit like my ex, which scares me. We bypassed the romantics and went into the business. But I don't know there's something there. There's something salacious about doing a TV project with Meghan Markle's ex." Too funny. We're sure Meghan is unbothered by Trevor's past interest in Bethenny, as she's landed herself quite the royal bachelor!! [Image via Rob Rich/WENN.].....»»

It's actually Rachel Meghan Markle. We assume like many actors, she chose to tweak her handle for more star power. Meghan Markle does have a nice ring to it (and speaking of rings, after the Royal Wedding she'll also be known as the Duchess of Sussex!). Funny enough, she couldn't escape the moniker as she played a character named Rachel on the USA hit Suits. Life is funny like that sometimes.

Although the Duchess of Sussex has only officially become a royal since her May 19 wedding, Prince Harry's wife appears to be fitting in rather nicely with her new family. Related: Meghan Approves Of Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra's Engagement! On Wednesday, Robert Lacey -- historical consultant for Netflix's The Crown -- told People that the former Suits actress has "great relationships" with both Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth! He exclaimed: "What's characterized these months are the two great relationships that she has struck up with the Queen and with Catherine... They seem to be her closest friends and partners in the official set-up." In fact, Miz Markle has not only won over the Queen, she has won over Elizabeth II's prized corgis! "Harry gave the clue to it when in the [engagement] interview he talked about how well the corgis had taken to her instantly. That seems to be a metaphor for the Queen and everybody else has taken their cue from that. Sadly, the 36-year-old's life is far from drama-free. As we reported over the weekend, dad Thomas Markle did an interview with The Daily Mail accusing the royal family of cutting him off from his daughter. He said: "I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off." Yikes!!

Royal Shade!! Queen Elizabeth II Reportedly Called Camilla Parker Bowles A "Wicked Woman" — After "Several Martinis"!

All families have drama, even the royal ones! And thanks to Tom Bower's new biography, Rebel Prince: The Power and Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles, fans are getting some insider deets about the longstanding beef between Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles' second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. Related: Harry & Meghan Are Having A Spring-Themed Wedding [...] All families have drama, even the royal ones! And thanks to Tom Bower's new biography, Rebel Prince: The Power and Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles, fans are getting some insider deets about the longstanding beef between Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles' second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. Related: Harry & Meghan Are Having A Spring-Themed Wedding Cake! In case you forgot, Prince William's poppa carried on a lengthy affair with Camilla while married to the now late Princess Diana. Understandably, this fact made the British monarch disapprove of Parker Bowles, especially when Charles wanted to marry her following his ex wife's death. According to an excerpt from the book, which was shared by Dailymail.com on Tuesday, the Prince of Wales asked his royal mother about welcoming Camilla into the royal family during the summer of 1998. Apparently, the queen uttered a pretty harsh response... Per Bower, the Windsor matriarch had drunk "several martinis, and to Charles's surprise she replied forcefully: She would not condone his adultery, nor forgive Camilla for not leaving Charles alone to allow his marriage to recover." DAMNNNN. Oh, and the queen didn't stop there, as she went on to call Camilla "that wicked woman" and informed Charles that she wanted "nothing to do with her." In response to his mother's shade, Charles "tearfully" called his girlfriend and informed her of the royal family hate. Although Charles had aunt Princess Margaret's support during this time, the queen would not budge on her stance. It wasn't until the queen's mother died that Elizabeth softened at the idea of making Camilla a member of their family. By 2005, the twosome had secured the queen's blessing and finally wed. Of course, since both Charles and Camilla's first marriages failed due to their liaison, they were not permitted to marry in the Church of England. Instead, the pair married at Windsor Town Hall and received a blessing at St. George's Chapel. Nonetheless, the now Duchess of Cornwall was left on the outside until her wedding day. Related: Meghan Was Kidnapped As Part Of Her Royal Training! Unlike Meghan Markle, who has been invited to all sorts of official outings, Camilla wasn't asked to attend ceremonies or dinners prior to the nuptials. Bower also claims Elizabeth "even hinted that there was very little special Welsh gold left to make Camilla's wedding ring." Reportedly, the queen also stopped Charles' close aide from planning a lavish reception. The book states Charles wallowed "in gloom" while discussing his mother's lack of an abdication plan. When asked if the monarch would EVER step down, the father of two is said to have answered: "Can you imagine her looking out of the window of Clarence House and waving to me as I paraded in a carriage down The Mall?" Yikes. Thankfully, the feud has lightened over the years, with Elizabeth and Camilla even spending time together at official events. The queen's stance on marriage has changed quite a bit, too!! We know this to be true, as QEII couldn't be more fond of Prince Harry's American divorcée love -- and is letting them wed in the Church of England. All we can say is, PHEW!!
