Queen Elizabeth II's true feelings about Prince Harry's relationship with Meghan Markle revealed

As Prince Harry's six month relationship with girlfriend Meghan Markle continues to heat up under the public eye, Us Weekly reports that his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, approves of the romance.

According to a source close to Buckingham Palace, Her Majesty has been "fully supportive" of Harry and Meghan's relationship, despite having yet to meet the "Suits" actress. For comparison, Kate Middleton didn't meet the Queen until she and William were nearly 5 years into their courtship.

The Queen "is delighted to see Harry in a loving relationship," the insider continues.

Though Markle has been slightly "overwhelmed" by the public's response to her relationship with Harry, she's had more than enough support and guidance from her beau's staff. Communications secretary Jason Knauf and private secretary Ed Lane Fox have both offered her tips as she continues to navigate her incredibly public romance.

A friend of Harry's reveals that she has been especially careful when it comes to social media, saying that she's "being careful not to reveal locations or send the wrong message" in her posts to her 1.4 million followers on Instagram.

It also sounds as if wedding bells are a very real possibility for the couple within the next year or so.

"I could see them engaged by the spring," says a source. "He's head over heels!"
