Queen Elizabeth II and Meghan Markle’s relationship has been examined.

The Queen and the Duchess of Sussex have been spotted several times together already. They made their first joint engagement shortly after Prince Harry and Markle’s royal wedding. Sometimes they are seen with the other members of the royal family.

According to Katie Nicholl in the 2019 Channel 5 documentary “Meghan Markle: Movies, Marriage & Motherhood,” the Queen and Markle’s relationship had a fast progression.

Prince Harry waited for several years before he introduced Chelsy Davy to her royal grandmother. He also dated Cressida Bonas for two years but never introduced the actress to the monarch. On the other hand, he just met Markle and they dated for a few months before he introduced the former “Suits” star to the Queen.

According to Nicholl, when Prince Harry introduced his then-girlfriend to Queen Elizabeth II, the latter felt that Markle was willing to give everything up for her grandson.

“I was told that the Queen’s feeling was this: ‘She is preparing to give everything up for her grandson. Her career, her identity, her nationality, her home in Toronto. Everything to be with Harry.’”

As a result, Queen Elizabeth II felt that they should make Markle feel welcome in the family. So she invited the actress to celebrate Christmas with them in 2017.

According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, what Queen Elizabeth II did was a “tremendous break of convention.” Markle was the first royal fiancée to join the royal family in Sandringham for Christmas.

“Normally it is just the wives and the husbands who are allowed that,” Morton explained.

According to sources, Markle calls Queen Elizabeth II “mama” in private. This is also how Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson addressed Her Majesty behind closed doors.

Meanwhile, new reports claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are itching to move away from the palace. Prince Harry and Markle reportedly wanted to separate themselves from the other royals especially from Prince William and Kate Middleton and create a new world for themselves.

Royal expert Juliet Rieden said that Markle and Prince Harry’s first move to achieve this is by creating their own Instagram account. She believes that it’s just right for the new parents to do this because their work is very different from the other royals.
