Queen Elizabeth gives Prince Harry her formal consent to marry Meghan Markle

Well, that's a relief - Queen Elizabeth has given her formal consent to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

But if you're not up with the royals, you wouldn't have had the foggiest Her Majesty was talking about Hazza and Megs if you'd simply read the announcement.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been "shocked to their core" by stories they have heard from armed forces veterans struggling with mental health.

Now that's a mouthful for Meghan to say at the alter. But as it turns out, the actress's given first name is actually Rachel.

One of those whose name has been suggested is Stella McCartney, who was behind British human rights lawyer Amal Clooney's cream-colored trouser suit for her civil marriage ceremony to US actor George Clooney, as well as the coat Markle wore on a visit to Cardiff earlier this year.

The Queen has already expressed how happy she is for the couple but this was something that had to be done out of tradition.

Markle's change of faith comes just two months before she weds Prince Harry in a much-anticipated ceremony.

Justin Welby will preside over the televised royal wedding ceremony on May 19 at the chapel at Windsor Castle, and he told ITV that he had a few must-dos at the top of his mind. His official title? Prince Henry of Wales, although he's known by his nickname Harry.

Certain sites pointed to one of the queen's statements made around the time of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge's 2011 wedding, which used flowery language to describe Middleton.

Presidential order bans Broadcom's proposed acquisition of Qualcomm
According to the letter from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. , the takeover would pose too great a security risk. Whether Intel lobbied in favor of blocking the Qualcomm-Broadcom deal or not, it can join Qualcomm in celebrating its failure.
