Queen Elizabeth II really intended to snub Meghan Markle?
Britain’s royal matriarch Queen Elizabeth II allegedly snubbed the fiancee of Prince Harry, American actress Meghan Markle.
In formal consent document for the wedding of the Queen for Harry and Meghan, which was came to the knowledge of the public last week, several people noticed something in it.
That said tiny detail sparked allegations from people that the royal matriarch is snubbing the bride-to-be.
Based on the article published in MamaMia, the document stated:
“Now know ye that we have consented and do by these presents signify our consent to the contracting of matrimony between our most dearly beloved grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales KCVO and Rachel Meghan Markle.”
This would pass the attention of a non-critic but those who are meticulous, they would notice the difference from this to what the Queen wrote for Prince William and wife Kate Middleton.
With regards to this, people dug up the document for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge back in 2011 which was written by Queen Elizabeth II.
In the said 2011 document, Kate Middleton was referred as “trusty and well-beloved”.
Social media users were fast to spread the question on the internet asking why Meghan Markle was not called “trusty and well-beloved” and followed up with inquiry if she does not deserve to be called as that.
To clarify the issue, a spokesperson from the Buckingham Palace stated that the omission of the said phrase was due to the fact that it was only referred to the citizens of United Kingdom.
Since Meghan Markle is American, it was not used to her.
William Hanson, an etiquette expert said that Queen Elizabeth II did not snub Meghan Markle.
“It’s just “an ancient from of protocol”. It’s not a snub towards Meghan Markle and people shouldn’t read into this… It’s simply the fact that she isn’t British,” Hanson said, based on the source.
