Prince Harry's wedding is supposed to be the most memorable day of his life, but unfortunately, his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, won't be present.
Life & Style is reporting that Harry and Meghan Markle are set to tie the knot in the Caribbean just before Christmas. "Many of Harry’s pals own houses and islands in the Caribbean, which makes it ideal," notes the insider. "They’re determined to make their wedding as romantic and intimate as possible."
"The wedding will be small and private," the insider adds. "Only close family members and friends will be invited." However, the British monarch will be nowhere in sight even though Harry previously had to ask her permission to marry Meghan.

Since Elizabeth, 90, is technically the head of the church of England, she should not endorse a marriage with someone who's been divorced. Meghan, 35, was previously hitched to Trevor Engelson, from 2011 until 2013.

Elizabeth and Philip were married on Nov. 20, 1947 at London's Westminster Abbey. At the time, Britain hadn't fully recovered from the devastation of World War II, so Elizabeth used ration coupons to buy the material for her wedding gown, which was designed by Norman Hartnell.
