Instrument of consent to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Since Prince Harry was fifth in the line of succession to the British throne at the time of his engagement, he was required to obtain Queen Elizabeth II’s permission to marry under the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, which allows the monarch to approve or disapprove marriages of the first six persons in the line of succession. The Queen’s consent was declared to the Privy Council of the United Kingdom on 14 March 2018. Here is an image of the Instrument of Consent, the hand-written document which records the Queen’s consent to the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. — Joe
