Prince Harry and Divorcee Meghan Markle Granted Permission to Marry at Westminster Abbey
Despite being a divorcee, the 35-year-old 'Suits' actress has been given permission to get married to the 32-year-old royal redhead at the Abbey, a spokesperson for the church has confirmed.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can marry at Westminster Abbey if he decides to pop the big question. A spokesperson for the Abbey has confirmed that despite being a divorcee, the 35-year-old actress has been given permission to get married to the 32-year-old royal redhead at the Abbey.

The representative for the church has revealed to Express, "The Abbey follows the General Synod Ruling of 2002," explaining that since then, "it has been possible for divorced people to be married in the Church of England."

The spokesman has also confirmed that the "Suits" actress' Jewish background (her father is reportedly Jewish) would not be a problem for her from having an "interfaith" marriage to the fifth-in-line to the U.K. throne.

Prince Harry and Meghan have been dating for several months. Should he propose to his actress girlfriend and marry her at Westminster Abbey, the lovebirds will follow in the footsteps of the Queen and Prince Philip, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Meghan was previously married to film and TV producer Trevor Engelson. They tied the knot in September 2011, after having dated since 2004. They split in May 2013 and divorced in August in the same year. They have no child together.
