London, May 13 Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has given her official seal of approval for grandson Prince Harry to marry his American actress fiancee Meghan Markle.

But the designer will not be revealed until the royal bride-to-be steps out of her wedding vehicle on arrival at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, where she is marrying Harry at noon on Saturday.

The design features maple leaves, the emblem of Canada, intertwined with roses and escallop shells, from Prince Harry's coat of arms. For Harry, then fifth in line to the throne, had required his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth's, permission to Wednesday Meghan, according to the 2013 Succession to the Crown Act.

With the birth of Prince Louis, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child last month, Prince Harry is now sixth-in-line to the British throne after his father Prince Charles, brother Prince William, and nephew Prince George and niece Princess Charlotte.

Reading "Now know ye", the hand-written Instrument of Consent carries the Queen's signature, "Elizabeth R" and is sealed with the Great Seal of the Realm which is attached to the foot of the document by woven cords. "Although using Emanuel would be a fitting tribute, I believe Meghan and Harry will be choosing unexpected, less traditional choices for the royal wedding", Szabo told Express.

The Queen officially gave consent to the marriage during a meeting of the Privy Council in March. As without Queen's consent, Prince Harry would have been disqualified from the line of succession.

There are also olive branches, like those in the Great Seal of the US.

Tens of thousands of visitors are expected in Windsor on the couple's wedding day on Saturday.

Meghan Markle's wedding dress designer has not yet been revealed, but it is highly unlikely for David Emanuel to create her gown. She will fall somewhere between the two with a modern wedding dress that keeps her look young yet classically feminine, perhaps with a nod to the style of a Hollywood icon, such as Audrey Hepburn.
