Here's why we applaud Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's pre-nup decision

Although Meghan Markle was already known for her role on "Suits", her activism, and her lifestyle blog, she became an instant global fashion icon when she got engaged to Prince Harry last November.

Now that she's a soon-to-be royal, Meghan Markle has a whole host of style rules to follow.

Let us know your opinions in the comments (below)! The choice of wedding gown designer has prompted much speculation in newspapers and magazines ever since Harry, the fifth-in-line to the throne, and Markle, 36, announced their engagement last November.

But who's actually paying for her designer pieces?

The Queen's formal consent came a few days after Meghan made her first public appearance with her at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.

"A wedding is a wedding, it's a lovely honour and privilege to do anyone's wedding dress", a smiling McCartney told Reuters when asked if she would like to design Markle's outfit. "You pray for them to have the strength to fulfil their vows and you seek to do it in a way that respects their integrity and honours their commitment".

Asked about his preparations for the approaching nuptials, Mr Welby said: "Unlike recent weddings, I must not drop the ring".

The Royal Marriages Act 1772 stated that every member of the royal family member needed the monarch's permission to marry. They also aired William & Kate: The Movie two weeks before Prince William and Kate Middleton said their vows.

British retailer Marks & Spencer received a publicity boost in January when Markle was photographed wearing one of its $62 jumpers during a visit to a London radio station.

After the couple gets married in May, Markle's wardrobe for official outings will be included in the royal budget, as administered by Prince Charles.
