Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will join Prince William and Kate the Duchess of Cambridge for the Royal Foundation Forum on Wednesday, February 28.

King George III, George II's grandson, ordered the now repealed 1772 act after his younger brother the Duke of Cumberland secretly married Lady Anne Horton, deemed to be a highly disreputable widow of a commoner.

The letters are generally seen as formalities with the Queen having already given her blessing in advance for both couples in prior statements.

Markle, who will marry Harry on May 19, has been juggling a busy schedule of wedding planning and attending events since her engagement was announced in November.

Alex exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I mean she's such a natural beauty, her beauty is so kind of simple that I think she will either go really traditional or she will go quite floaty and whimsical. I know that she will be unbelievably good at the job part of it as well".

Happiy, that is not the case with the Queen having invited Meghan to spend Christmas with the royal family at her Sandringham estate. Markle wore the shoes on March 8 in black suede alongside Prince Harry when they celebrated International Women's Day.

A military source said that Meghan underwent the security training even before her wedding was "because of heightened security issues at this time".

They'd previously said they wanted members of the public to feel involved in their big day and, staying true to their word, they'll undertake a carriage ride through Windsor at 1pm after tying the knot.
