As Prince Harry is soon to marry his girlfriend Meghan Markle, many people are impatiently waiting for the new royal wedding.

Besides the couple itself, both Meghan's and Prince Harry's families must be overjoyed, except for one member - the Queen herself. It has been rumored that she even may not show up at the wedding ceremony. Apparently, the Queen does not approve of her grandson's marriage with Meghan Markle and you have to see why.

Queen Elizabeth II is not the head of the UK but of the English church as well. As the church does not approve of divorce, those who were once married and got divorced will hardly ever obtain a consent to remarry.

Being the head, the Queen is obliged to support the religious principle that a marriage is to last forever.

This would not be the first time that the Queen did not show up at a wedding ceremony.

Namely, when her son Charles was getting married to Camilla Parker-Bowles, the Queen was not present, due to the fact that both Charles and Camilla were married before. But, the Queen did show up at the reception which came after the ceremony.

Luckily, many laws and religious principles have been modified since 2005, enabling divorced people to remarry. This provided much more flexibility regarding "Holy Matrimony" and, in turn, allowed many people who were previously married to get married again in various religious institutions.

It has not been officially announced whether the Queen will be at Prince Harry's wedding or not, but not showing up sounds absurd, as hardly any grandmother would miss an opportunity to attend her grandchild's wedding ceremony.
