Meghan Markle Attended a Private Tea Party With Queen Elizabeth

In a formal introduction at Buckingham Palace, Harry took actress Meghan for tea with the Monarch, which extended into a full hour. The tea was said to be extremely informal, and was not "widely publicized within the palace".

The couple, who have been dating for at least 15 months, arrived at about 5 p.m.in a Ford Galaxy station wagon with blacked-out windows for the discreet appointment.

The teatime meeting, where insiders say the Queen normally enjoys a selection of sandwiches, fruit and scones, reportedly lasted almost an hour. That's some serious face time, girl!

FYI, the Daily Mail reports that this is Meghan's first official meeting with the Queen, though it was also reported that they met over the summer.

WATCH: Prince Harry talks about making Queen Elizabeth proud and missing Princess Diana. In fact, according to information from the american magazine US Weekly, the two womenin the life of Harry met on Sunday, 3 September, at the castle of Balmoral in Scotland.

Friends now say it is only a matter of time before the couple tie the knot.

PEOPLE reports that the rumored meeting is significant since Harry is the fifth in line to the throne (he will be moved to sixth in line once Prince William and Duchess Catherine's third child is born in April).

Regardless, locking in his grandmother's approval isn't expected to be a problem, as the Queen simply "adores" Harry.

As Meghan has been married before, Harry must ask the Queen for her permission to Wednesday the brunette star.

All signs are pointing to an engagement as, in addition to this visit, Harry and Meghan made their public debut as a couple last month at the Invictus Games in Toronto.

Back in November 2016, when she was still new to her relationship with Harry, but still fashioning herself as a lifestyle expert with her site, The Tig, she posted a photo on Instagram, with the cryptic caption "teatime".
