Queen Elizabeth II has given her grandson Prince Harry her blessing to pursue his new relationship with Suits actress Meghan Markle, Us Weekly reports. She's "fully supportive" of the two according to a Buckingham Palace insider, and "delighted to see Harry in a loving relationship."
Markle hasn't met Her Majesty yet, but she shouldn't be discouraged. It apparently took Kate Middleton five years to meet the sovereign. The actress has already covered serious ground in meeting the royal family after only dating Prince Harry for less than a year. For starters, she met Prince William during a recent trip to London in November. Much like the Queen, the Duke of Cambridge showed his support for the new couple. The actress has reportedly made a good impression on Harry's father, Prince Charles, as well.

However, there are still plenty of royal family members Markle has yet to meet, namely, the Duchess of Cambridge. There have been no reports on the two meeting, but Middleton is "really keen to see what Meghan's all about," a source told Us.
Until that long-awaited union happens, Markle and Harry continue to visit each other on short trips to London or Toronto, her hometown. During her latest trip to the UK, the two were photographed together for the first time on their way to see a show in the West End.
