Buckingham Palace has released an image of the handwritten document in which Queen Elizabeth II gives her consent to Prince Harry to marry American Meghan Markle.

The design to the left of the text incorporates the red dragon of Wales along with the UK's floral emblems. It also includes two golden poppies, the official flower of Markle's home state of California. For Harry, then fifth in line to the throne, had required his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth's, permission to Wednesday Meghan, according to the 2013 Succession to the Crown Act.

While great anticipation has surrounded the unlikely union between the royal family's former wild child and Markle, who has an African-American mother and white father and is divorced, Harry's father Prince Charles last Wednesday said, "it's absolutely marvelous".

There are also olive branches, like those in the Great Seal of the US. Prince Harry has just been made a Youth Ambassador for the organisation by his grandmother and speaking of the new role, he said that "Meghan will be joining me in this work, in which she, too, is hugely excited to take part in".

"Now know ye that we have consented and do by these presents signify our consent to the contracting of matrimony between our most dearly beloved grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales KCVO and Rachel Meghan Markle", the instrument reads.
