Meghan Markle has just met Her Majesty the Queen

It is understood the Queen spent almost an hour with her grandson and the Los Angeles-born Meghan who stars in the US legal drama Suits

Meeting the future in-laws is always daunting, and it's definitely got to test the nerves when you're trying to impress The Queen!

Prince Harry's girlfriend was dressed in her character Rachel's signature pencil skirt and white shirt as she exited the building after filming.

In a formal introduction at Buckingham Palace, Harry took actress Meghan for tea with the Monarch, which extended into a full hour.

Insiders say that Harry, 33, had spoken to his grandmother during the summer at Balmoral asking to introduce Meghan, who is three years his senior.

Last Thursday a blacked-out Ford Galaxy was seen to be driving through the gates of the Queen's private entrance of the Palace at around 5pm. He is said to want to tie the knot at St. George's chapel in Windsor in a more private ceremony than his brother's 2011 wedding.

The Queen and Prince Philip's wedding anniversary takes place on 20 November, so time is ticking.

And it comes as a Royal source revealed to Daily Star Online that Harry and Meghan are likely to announce their engagement next month.

"William and Kate are expecting their third baby mid April, and Harry won't want to overshadow the birth of another prince or princess, and, of course, the Duchess will need some time to recover before she is at such a high-profile event".

While royal fans breathlessly wait a royal engagement, there are also several key dates to be celebrated before Harry and Meghan can go public with an announcement.

A royal engagement and royal baby in a matter of months.

"We met her a couple of years back and she said she really liked the song ['Murder on the Dance Floor'] and we sort of spent a weekend away at something together and she was really lovely", Ellis-Bextor told Hello!
