The Queen shares 'intimate' lunch with Meghan Markle

Liam Payne

For fashion brands, having apparel seen on a member of Britain's royal family can lead to a spike in sales.

With the royal wedding approaching soon (May 19, mark your calendars!), Meghan Markle has been accompanying her fiancé, Prince Harry for all the Royal events. She shared: "I think she is going to go for something super clean, sleek and simple".

British newspapers have been rife with rumours that she has chosen the dress and already attended her first fitting, although royal officials are keeping such details a tightly guarded secret.

As the former One Direction star sang, Harry appeared to be caught on camera raising his eyebrows to his fiancee, while Meghan was seemingly trying not to laugh.

Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace have not commented on the lunch, but it's understood that both the Queen and Meghan were in Windsor on Sunday. Her empathy and focus on helping others has existed since before the couple even met, when she participated in different organizations and advocated for the rights of others, always striving to become a better person and a better actress.

Serena Williams continues to win in BNP Paribas Open
Serena was already pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia, who was born on 1 September, when she beat Venus 6-4 6-4 in Melbourne. But I have to play a seed regardless, sooner than later most times for the next couple of tournaments, so I have to be ready.

Although the monarch is unlikely to have withheld her blessing, she would only have said "no" on the advice of the prime minister.

Meghan admitted, "I of course had incredibly respect for getting to have that time with her".

Royal rules dictated that Meghan, who was raised Protestant, had to be baptised in the Anglican Church before her wedding.

Why did the Queen use Harry and Meghan's real names to give formal consent?

And at Christmas, Meghan's gift for Harry's grandmother is said to have gone down a storm.
