And before you ask, no, there wasn’t really ever any doubt. But Queen Elizabeth did formally have to approve to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s upcoming nuptials. (She did the same for Will and Kate’s wedding in 2011.)

In the statement, the Queen declared her consent to the wedding between her “most dearly beloved grandson”  (AWWWWWW) and the former actress.

The Queen’s statement comes just a few days after she and Meghan attended their first official event together.
