Why does the queen call Prince Harry's fiancée 'Rachel' Meghan Markle?

On Thursday, the queen released a statement and formally gave her blessing for the lovebirds to Wednesday in just two short months.

The match is officially official: Queen Elizabeth has given her consent to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming marriage.

In a letter released by her Privy Council, The Queen described Harry as "my most dearly beloved grandson".

"I think she will go for something a bit different actually".

In fact, "Rachel" is listed as Markle's first name on all her legal documents (like her passport), and the queen is required to use her full name when formally declaring her consent.

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