Prince Harry and Meghan Markle certainly aren't squashing rumors that a royal engagement is in their near future.

Just weeks after holding hands for the cameras at the Invictus Games, the couple reportedly had tea with the Queen last week.

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan and Harry stopped by Buckingham Palace on Thursday for a pot of the Queen's own blend.

This isn't the first time the American actress has met her beau's grandmother. Markle was reportedly introduced to the Queen in early September, while she was on her summer holiday at Balmoral.

Of course, these introductions aren't merely courtesy calls. The Queen must approve of Markle before she and Harry can tie the knot.

According to the modern iteration of the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, the monarch must give permission to Prince Harry to marry. (While it used to pertain to all members of the royal family, the law now only applies to the first six people in line to the throne; Prince Harry is currently fifth.)

But between this tea party and the almost-certainly Palace-approved interview, Markle gave in the October issue of Vanity Fair in which she declared "We’re a couple. We’re in love" about Prince Harry, we're fairly certain wedding bells are in this pair's future.
