The Queen Must Approve

Before Harry can ever get hitched, his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, has to approve of his bride-to-be. And, no, we're not just saying that she has to get along with you in order to invite you to family functions — she is required to sign off on every marriage for any person who is a descendant of King George II before they can get legally married in the UK. The queen recently made a push for a new law that would modify this rule and whittle down her approval list to the first six heirs to the throne and make it so that, even if she or any sovereign doesn't approve, the couple in question could still get legally married but would have to give up their succession rights. However, this new law has not gone into effect just yet.
