THE QUEEN loves to guzzle down the sweet nectar, so I figured that she spent many a night bonding with her ginger grandson by doing shots of the good stuff in between crank calling Camilla and gently putting Prince Philip’s hand in warm water after he passes out on a pile of Corgis in the corner of the throne room. So I always figured that Prince Hot Ginge was the ginger apple of THE QUEEN’s eye, and it was 100% confirmed this morning when her official announcement of consent was released.
Because the royal family is the royal family, THE QUEEN still has to give a white gloved thumbs up to PHG marrying Meghan Markle on May 19. During a meeting with her Privy Council yesterday, THE QUEEN formally stamped her gold seal of approval onto the marriage of her Most Dearly Beloved Grandson and that American Divorcee Actress Whose Nipples May End Up On The Internet Soon. I looked at all those capital letters and thought, “I didn’t know that Jaden Smith is THE QUEEN’s ghost writer.”
“My Lords, I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council.”
At first, it was reported that when THE QUEEN gave her consent to Prince William marrying Duchess Kate in 2011, she referred to them as:
Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales, K.G. and Our Trusty and Well-beloved Catherine Elizabeth Middleton
See, PHG is the total favorite. While she calls Prince Williams “Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson,” she calls PHG, “My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson.” We know which grandson she drops her pocketbook and cup of gin to hug when she sees him and which one she gives a cold smile to before going back to drinking her cocktail.
Some people thought that THE QUEEN has also made it clear that Meghan Markle hasn’t won the title of her favorite grandaughter-in-law by not referring to her as “Trusty and Well-beloved” like she did Duchess Kate. But apparently, the wording in the online consent announcement about Prince William and Duchess Kate’s marriage is the same as the online consent announcement about Prince Hot Ginge and Meghan Markle’s marriage.
No, the Queen did not slight Meghan Markle by not refering to has “Our Trusty & Well-beloved” like she did Kate in the formal Consent with offical seal released the day of wedding.
If you look at the 2 online consents from Privy Council records for Will & Harry, same wording. pic.twitter.com/8fkTcwY4nh

If I was Meghan Markle, I wouldn’t care what THE QUEEN called me as long as I still got to get on that royal freckled dick full-time.
And yes, I see that she also called Prince William “My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson” in the online consent announcement. That’s obviously a typo. She meant to write “That Other Grandson Who Isn’t My Favorite Prince Hot Ginge.”
